If you want to see Upstate’s Zipcars, you’ll have to come to the Think Green Fair Thursday, May 22. The two Zipcars are often missing from their designated parking spaces at Geneva Tower because they’re being driven by Upstate students, medical residents and employees.
Zipcars are self service and can be reserved and accessed 24 hours a day. Zipcar members can download a Zipcar mobile application on their smartphones to make reservations, lock and unlock the vehicles and activate the horn to help locate the vehicle. Members pay a one-time fee of $25 to join Zipcar and then $50 per year. Vehicles can be rented for as little as an hour, or for multiple days, at a cost of $8.50 per hour Monday through Thursday or $9.50 per hour Friday through Sunday.
The Think Green Fair is held in the Setnor Academic Building, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 22.
