Zipcar: Zipcar Drives Past Million Member Milestone

BOSTON, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zipcar, the world's leading
car-sharing network, today announced that it has exceeded the million member
milestone with operations in more than 500 cities and towns in eight
countries across the globe. Zipcar's community of over one million fee-paying
"Zipsters" continue to choose Zipcar as their mobility service.

Zipcar's members are a part of a global community committed to making cities
better places to live through the reduction of personal vehicle ownership and
congestion. Zipcar's annual member survey revealed that nearly 10 percent of
members get rid of a car after joining, and 32 percent would have purchased a
vehicle without the presence of Zipcar. As a result of Zipcar's global
membership in eight countries, more than 413,000 vehicles are not on city
streets, significantly reducing the potential congestion and parking
challenges in the over 500 cities and towns in which Zipcar operates.

"For the past 16 years Zipcar has been driven by its vision of a world where
car sharers outnumber car owners," said Andrew Daley, vice president of
marketing. "While we're pleased to have hit the million member milestone,
Zipcar views success by the collective impact our community of a million
members have had on the globe. With less cars on the road, cities can build
more green space, reduce parking and congestion challenges and overall create
a better place to live."

Zipcar marks the million member milestone amidst double-digit growth in new
members for the past two years. The company's continued growth is largely
driven by its commitment to the member experience and Zipcar's expanding
footprint, which now services more people in more places than ever before.
Over the past few years, Zipcar has expanded to a wider network of locations
across the globe, launched its most flexible service yet with one-way and
inter-city options in select markets, unveiled a join and drive process for
members looking to access a vehicle within minutes, and will launch a new
Zipcar free-floating car-sharing model this fall.

Zipcar provides its members on-demand access to a variety of cars in hundreds
of cities, as well as colleges and university campuses throughout eight
countries in North America and in Europe. Zipcars are available 24/7 for
reservation via Zipcar's mobile app, online, or over the phone. Prospective
members can join the service and start driving instantly on Zipcar's mobile
