By the Numbers / Car Sharing

Since the fall of 2007, the Zipcar car-sharing program has been setting students free to roam. The low-cost rentals have put hundreds of students, faculty and staff behind the wheel, offering access to internships, grocery stores and off-campus events around Southern California. Drawing support from the Career Development Office, the Volunteer Center and sports clubs, Zipcar has grown into a campus mainstay.

Here’s a closer look at the program by the numbers.

93,192 miles driven this academic year though winter 2009

600 students, faculty and staff registered to use Zipcar

47 new drivers registered each month

9 vehicles available for rent

560 individual reservations made in the month of February 2009

60.3% average vehicle utilization on weekends
