Zipcar — the carsharing service that rents vehicles by the hour or by the day — is expanding into Massachusetts. The expansion is taking place in Malden, Quincy, Newton, and Braintree at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s T locations along the Green, Orange and Red lines. This is the first time a transit agency has agreed to keep some of Zipcar’s vehicles at transit stations. Exact location are listed in the press release, and more vehicles will be coming in the next few months.
Of course, since the vehicles are parked at the train stations, this makes Zipcar an attractive option for travelers who don’t want to bother with “traditional” car rental hubs. The only downside? You have to be a Zipster to use the service.
