Car Sharing with Zipcar


The University of Houston offers on-campus car sharing through Zipcar to students, faculty and staff 18 years of age or older. 

COAST members who choose the Zipcar option can choose either:

  • $300 in annual Zipcar drive credit, or
  • $120 in Zipcar drive credits plus $180 in METRO fare money
Zipcar membership is $35 annually. This is not subsidized by COAST and must be paid for by the individual.

Members have access to a variety of vehicles that can be used for a small hourly charge. Actual rates vary by make and model; however, the price covers gas and insurance, so it might be cheaper than driving your own car.

There are currently Zipcars located on campus at:

  • University Lofts
  • Cougar Place
  • Bayou Oaks
  • Cougar Village 1
