New Rules for Zipcar

Play associated audio

D.C. may allow Zipcar to park its cars in lots and alleyways. The Zoning Commission has given preliminary approval to a new rule that would let the car-sharing service legally park in city lots and alleys. The company now rents private spaces in residential neighborhoods but the city doesn't allow other commercial activity in those same areas. The rule would allow Zipcar continue its practice. Zipcar is the only car-sharing service in Washington. It allows people to rent cars when they need them and having the cars parked in neighborhoods allows easier access to them.
