A zippy look into the future at the University of Virginia. Zipcars are coming to UVa next week.
Six of the cars will be available to students, staff, and faculty. Charlottesville residents can also use the cars simply by paying a yearly fee.
Zipcars is a ride-sharing service popular on college campuses. You rent the cars by the hour, and you are covered for gas and insurance.
It's a cheap and environmentally-friendly way for people who don't want to own a car to hit the road.
