The Options for Wheels When You Want Them Are Expanding
MIT employees and students now have more of a selection when they need a vehicle for short-term use. Sign up for a Zipcar or try a RelayRide. Both options provide you with a vehicle without your having to buy one.
Learn how to share your car when you are not using it. Or find out how to access a vehicle from someone in the MIT neighborhood. This option for a car when you need one connects people with owners whose vehicles would otherwise just be sitting idle. Search for cars to share on MIT campus. RelayRides is not affiliated with MIT, but it is an available carsharing option for our community members.
MIT hosts 13 Zipcars on campus and sponsors Zipcar memberships for staff and students. An MIT sponsored member pays no application fee, no security deposit and just a $25.00 annual fee.
Zipcars on campus are located at:
- NW86 Lot at 70 Pacific Street
- 600 Memorial Drive
- Albany Garage, Level 1
- Eastgate Resident Lot
