Wildcard Advantage Partner

Zipcar car sharing: wheels when you want them.

  • Drive cars by the hour or day. Gas and insurance included.
  • Cars conveniently located on campus and throughout Evanston
  • Save hundreds over car ownership.
  • Choose from sedans, hybrids, vans, and more.

Please note: There is an application process to review your driving record before you're approved to drive. It can take up 2 business days to approve your application. Your Zipcard will arrive in the mail 3-7 days after you apply. If you want to drive sooner, you can pick up your Zipcard at a local Zipcar office, but the application process will still take the same amount of time. Please give yourself ample time before your desired first reservation.

Student Spouse/Partner: Spouses are not eligible to receive the student discount if they are not also students. Spouses can still be on the same account, and the second, non-student driver would be eligible for a different discount off our standard membership rate; it’s just not quite the student membership rate. The hourly rates would be the same for both drivers, which includes $1 off of Ford cars on and around campus!
