Boston City Fleet to Trial Zipcar Reservation System

Vehicles once dedicated to individual departments will be pooled in an interdepartmental fleet to improve efficiency and utilization costs.

Zipcar Inc., the Cambridge company that rents cars by the hour as well as the day, will help the City of Boston make its fleet of vehicles more efficient. Under a program called FleetHub, city-owned vehicles will be equipped with Zipcar’s proprietary vehicle-reservation technology. The city will then be able to use vehicles once dedicated to individual departments in an interdepartmental fleet. Zipcar’s self-service online reservation system will be part of the operation, and alternative-fuel and hybrid vehicles will help to modernize the fleet, a news release said. The program will be launched as a six-month pilot. Zipcar was selected via competitive bidding.


Honda Insight II Hybrid will be used in ZipCar fleets.

Zipcar will also introduce Fit EV battery electric vehicles (BEV) this fall and Accord Plug-In Sedans early 2013.
