IGO and Zipcar Car Sharing
IGO and Zipcar carsharing services allow members to use one of their fleet of cars. They both provide the convenience, affordability and reliability of transportation without owning a car.
Members are billed a low hourly or daily rate that includes gas, insurance, maintenance and repairs.
IGO is Chicago's only homegrown carsharing company. Use IGO and only pay for a car when you use it. You never have to pay for gas, insurance, or repairs.
IGO offers several locations convenient to the Evanston and Chicago campuses. To search cars and locations, please visit the IGO website.
