Zipcar comes to Columbia
Dying to get away? Have a driver’s license? Zipcar has recently opened its college students program to Columbians. You can sign up for an annual fee to have access to Zipcar rentals—there are several cars in the parking garage next to Westside on 110th Street.
What’s great is that you only have to be 18, instead of the usual renter’s age of 21 or 25.
Will you actually use it to drive around Manhattan? Probably not. But if you have family nearby and want to be able to take day trips (or just get out of the city for a while), it might be a worthwhile investment. I don’t know, ask your financial adviser—I’m a blog editor.
And stay tuned for a post on day trips and getaways for those of you staying in the city for fall break!
