Car Sharing and Carpooling
Vanderbilt has invested in its own ride match software system, which facilitates the identification of potential carpool and vanpool partners in the Vanderbilt community (anyone with a Vanderbilt email address). This program matches people from similar general locations who wish to share a ride to Vanderbilt.
Zipcars are rental cars available at various locations on campus to members of the Zipcar program. Members can reserve cars minutes or months in advance, and gas, parking, and insurance are included in hourly and daily rates. Zipcars are available for use at Vanderbilt. Individual annual memberships for Vanderbilt faculty, staff and students are available for $35; departmental memberships are available at no cost. Any community member who is not affiliated with Vanderbilt University can receive membership for an annual fee of $50 and a one-time application fee of $25.
WeCar, now available to Vanderbilt employees, students, departments, and alumni, is a membership-based car sharing program for people who are looking for an alternative method of transportation that lowers the cost and reduces the hassles of traditional transportation. WeCars are available by the hour or by the day. Gas, insurance and 200 free miles are included with every reservation.
