All application is online, from [http://zipcar.com their website]. Cars must be reserved before they can be used (you can't just walk up and wave your ID). If you cancel a reservation on short notice, you will be charged (like the airlines do). Smoking in cars is not allowed, nor are pets. Other penalties for returning a car with less than 1/4 tank of gas, returning to wrong spot, forgetting to turn off headlights, etc. Zipcar may work out well for Davis, since so many people live ["Car-free in Davis" car-free].</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 19: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Most are currently located on the ["UC Davis"] campus.</span> </td> <td> <span>+ Their map (http://www.zipcar.com/davis/find-cars) shows cars in three locations in Davis, all in the ["UC Davis"] core area.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Zipcarhttp://daviswiki.org/Zipcar2009-09-25 12:00:13RyanMikulovskylinks <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Zipcar<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 16: </td> <td> Line 16: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> '''Zipcar''' is a car sharing service that provides those without a ["transportation" car] the flexibility to use a <span>car</span> without traditionally renting.
