Home > Rider Guide > Car Share Program

Car sharing extends the reach of the NJ TRANSIT system by enabling customers to use a combination of rail service and rental car to reach their destinations. Car sharing offers an alternative to owning a personal vehicle, while providing customers convenience and flexibility in using their public transportation system.

NJ TRANSIT and Zipcar, the nation's largest car-sharing company, have teamed up to add the flexibility of car-rental service at five NJ TRANSIT locations across the state. The partnership helps customers complete the "last mile" between the station and their destinations. Using car share, customers can access business meetings, run errands or reach leisure destinations that are outside the immediate area of a NJ TRANSIT station.

NJ TRANSIT and Zipcar put you in the driver's seat!

Zipcars can be driven by the hour or day. Zipcar enables members to reserve a vehicle online or by phone and pick it up at a reserved parking location of the driver's choice. Members are given an access card, called a Zipcard, which will open the vehicle at the time of the reservation and also serves as the ignition key. Rental includes insurance, a gas card and reimbursements for typical car maintenance needs. Gas, insurance and 180 miles per day are all included in low hourly and daily rates. It's all the convenience of owning a car without the headaches and hassles. For details on the program, visit Zipcars are conveniently parked at these select NJ TRANSIT stations:
