Zip Car Faculty & Staff Membership

Pacific has launched a partnership with Zipcar to offer a car-sharing program on campus for faculty, staff and students. The convenient transportation option is now available on the Forest Grove Campus, allowing access to Zipcar's worldwide service.

Pacific University members can join for a $25 annual membership fee, with rates on campus Zipcar vehicles starting as low as $7.50 per hour and $69 per day.

Gas, insurance, reserved parking spots and up to 180 miles of driving per day are included in Zipcar rates. Cars can be reserved for as little as an hour or for multiple days. 

Membership to Zipcar also allows faculty and staff to enjoy the service worldwide wherever Zipcars are available.

Sign-up is available at

Pacific University is initially offering two vehicles, including Ford Focus and Toyota Prius models, which are located in Lot F on the Forest Grove Campus

Zipcars are self-service and can be easily reserved and accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Participating members with smartphones, including iPhones and Android devices, may download the Zipcar mobile application to make reservations, lock and unlock the vehicles and honk the horn to help locate the vehicle.  

Members can also use Zipcar’s “Reserve a Zipcar” app on Facebook to view available Zipcars and make, extend or cancel a reservation from their Facebook account. Reservations can also be made over the phone or on Zipcar’s website. 

Zipcar has established partnerships with other local universities including the University of Oregon along with more than 300 universities across North America.
