Car Sharing & Ride Sharing

Car Sharing: ZipCar

Back to top

For those times when biking or walking just can’t get you where you need to go, ZipCar is a great alternative to using a private vehicle, especially if you don’t own a car.  IU is partnered with ZipCar, a car sharing company that allows students and faculty to join for only $25 a year in return for access to a ZipCar 24/7; all you have to do is go online to reserve a time slot and you’ll be on your way. You can rent ZipCars by the hour or for an entire day here!

Ride Sharing: ZimRide

Zimride provides private rideshare services for IU Bloomington, and is a great way to find carpools going to the airport, Indianapolis, Chicago, and other nearby cities.  You’ll need to use your Central Authentication login and password to gain access to the site, which helps you offer or request rides for commutes, road trips, and popular events. If you have a car, split costs by offering rides; if you don’t have a car, find rides where you need to go!
