The Future is Shared

As a valued partner of SEPTA [check out their Perk here] and an ally in our collective goal of making Philadelphia an even better place to live and get around, we wanted to let you know about Zipcar's continued efforts in reducing car ownership in cities across the globe.

Zipcar is committed to a world where car sharers outnumber car owners. Did you know wach Zipcar eliminates the need for up to 13 personally owned vehicles?

Less cars, means less congestion, more green spaces, more bike lanes, more multi-modal options and other things that aren’t cars. Segway tour anyone?

To further encourage urbanites to give up their car, Zipcar launched a social media campaign on Friday, 9/22 which just so happened to be Car Free Day. The campaign asks those living a car-free or car-lite lifestyle to “share how you get there” using #sharethewheel.

Whether it’s biking to work, taking the bus to an open mic, or walking to the store—every mindful move makes a difference and Zipcar wants to hear all about it. Tag @Zipcar with a unique story about why you #ShareTheWheel every day in your city, and if it has them on the edge of our social media seats, this could be all yours:

Zipcar membership for newbies (or $150 driving credit for members)

Local bike share gift certificate

A pair of sneakers that were built for the streets

A Transit Pass

Ten submissions will receive a multi-modal package including Zipcar credit, sneakers, a transit pass and more. Ends 10/14. More information including contest rules & regs can be found at

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Zipcar and seeing the impact of our collective efforts to reduce car ownership.
