BROOKHAVEN, Ga. -- MARTA has added two Zipcars to the Brookhaven Station to boost convenience for commuters.
The new additions, a Honda Civic and a Ford Focus will be kept in the Peachtree Street parking lot, near the Kiss & Ride.
A spokeswoman for MARTA reported that there are now over 40 Zipcars at 13 transit stations around Atlanta.
"MARTA is committed to cost-effectively expanding customer amenities to make it even easier to use transit, and Zipcar offers us a great way to enhance mobility options to our patrons," MARTA General Manager, CEO Keith T. Parker said. "We look forward to continuing to grow this great partnership."
Customers must be at least 21 years old to rent a Zipcar. Rates start at $8.50 per hour, or $69 per day.
"We are excited to be launching a new Zipcar location at the Brookhaven MARTA station, making it even easier for MARTA riders and members of the Atlanta community to choose cost-effective and convenient transportation options," Nicole Mozeliak, Zipcar regional vice president said. "We know a lot of our members use MARTA to commute into the city, and we hope this new Zipcar location will make life easier for members who use public transit, but have the occasional need for a vehicle."
