Why Living in the San Francisco area is so great - Reason #8 -- Zipcars!
I first learned about Zipcars when my daughter lived in Boston. Now I see them heading up and down the freeway between San Francisco and San Jose.
This is a great concept for urban dwellers who might not own a car. If you are walking, biking, riding a bus or taxi every day, your need for a car could be minimal. But what about the times when you truly need a car? To fill that void, in steps Zipcars and its local cousin, City Car Share.
Located throughout San Francisco, this is a movement that has been embraced by the city and here to stay, as was recently acknowledged when San Francisco won Zipcar's Future Metropolis Award, a prize based on the 'sustainability, innovation, vibrancy, efficiency, and livability' of the top 36 most populated cities in the United States.
