We (Boston Green Building) try to attend as many green fairs and shows that we can. While at these shows we, like everyone else; create contacts with different companies & organizations, learn of new products, and who is out there to install & implement these green ideas. We were stationed next to ZipCar for three shows in a row and on the second show the wheels started to turn. We thought, Why not have a ZipCar at our office?? We are located in Allston and just a short walk from the Charles and Beacon Street, a notorious area for limited parking spaces (this goes for Boston in general). We figured since we have a good size parking area in front of our building that we could give up a spot for a ZipCar.
As we have just passed our one year anniversary with ZipCar they awarded us with a second vehicle. We started with “Chiquito” a Honda Civic and we now have “Ant” who is an Audi A3. The vehicles price out between $9.75 to $11.75 an hour and $72 to $82 bucks for the day. Not a bad deal to get you where you need to be and to not have to worry about parking when you get home.
