Zipcar Inc., the Cambridge-based car-sharing company, announced a partnership today with the City of Houston to launch a municipal electric vehicle fleet sharing program, called Houston Fleet Share.

Through the program, 50 existing city-owned fleet vehicles, including 25 Nissan Leaf EVs, will be outfitted with Zipcar’s FastFleet proprietary fleet sharing technology for use by city employees across all departments.

The program is expected to help Houston gain new efficiencies, improve utilization and reduce costs, while further reducing the environmental impacts of their fleet, the company said.
