Over the next few months, the University will be making changes to the UP Zipcar program. As of April 1, 2013, no new members will be added to the University account, and any user who has not used the Zipcar 4-hours personal use program over the past eight months will be removed from the account. All University-provided memberships will be closed as of June 30.
The University continues to encourage use of alternative transportation options to reduce single occupancy vehicle travel to campus. Employees can create personal Zipcar accounts and continue to have access to both on- and off-campus Zipcars. All new members signing up for a personal account will be offered a free first year membership. Zipcar Business members who intend to continue to use Zipcar for business use will need to open a new personal account with Zipcar when their University-provided membership expires on June 30. Employees with approval to use Zipcar for business travel will be asked to attach a University P-card to their Zipcar account for billing. Zipcar use for business travel will be subject to approval by an employee’s supervisor.
Personal Zipcar accounts can be set up online at www.zipcar.com/uportland, or over the phone by calling member services at 1-866-4ZIPCAR.
