One of the wonderful things about urban living is the lack of need for an automobile on a daily basis. When we moved to downtown Seattle we liberated ourselves from the three car garage syndrome of the desert and downsized to one all purpose vehicle.
There is a better way for those who don't want to make car payments, insurance payments, parking garage payments and buy gas.
You can join the growing number of Seattle Urban dwellers who use zipcar! From feisty BMW mini coopers to hybrids and luxury sedans, your chariot awaits with zipcar. As a member, you can reserve a vehicle any time you like by entering the address you want to leave from. Book with your cell phone, pop open the door with your zipcard, and even use the gas card inside the car to fuel up!
While this may not be for everyone, with gas priced at more than four dollars per gallon, opting out of car ownership to rent cars for six dollars an hour including gas and insurance, works for many! Not to mention what it can do for the environment to be part of the car share culture!
Just another reason to love Living in Seattle!
