We have more ways for you to move around town as Zipcar has expanded to the Willow Creek/SW 185th Transit Center in Hillsboro and Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center in Northeast Portland. Our car-sharing friends have just added two dedicated parking spots to these transit centers as well as a third one at Gateway/NE 99th Transit Center.

“The relatively quick uptake in these areas demonstrates very strong demand for more sustainable alternatives to car ownership in areas further away from the urban core,” says Jeremy Nelson, General Manager for Zipcar in the Portland metro area.

Zipcar also has vehicles available at the following locations:

There are 18 Zipcars available at TriMet transit centers and more than 200 within a five-minute walk of transit stops in the metro area. Look for the large green signs: “Zipcars live here.”

“I’ve been really amazed by the demand we’ve received for Zipcars at transit centers surrounding Portland in all directions,” Nelson says. “What started as a modest launch at two transit centers has grown to eight in a little over a year. We’re going to continue to push these boundaries as demand dictates.”

Zipcar can be used by the hour or daily. Gas and insurance are included. Check out all the Zipcar locations at TriMet transit centers.
