You can be a Zipster too....
Have you thought about taking transit to campus, but think that you need a car sometimes to run errands? Be a Zipster! We've got two Zipcars on campus (located in front of the MAT Building) for students, staff, faculty and the community to use 24/7. Zipcar's discounted rates include gas, insurance, and maintenance. So if you want to try a commuting alternative but worry that you may still need a car for errands, road trips, shopping, etc. you can use a Zipcar! More information about our Zipcar program can be found here: http://www.tacoma.uw.edu/about-uw-tacoma/getting-campus/zipcar-university-washington-tacoma
