Carshare & Bikeshare

Carshare & Bikeshare


Carsharing is short-term car rental. You rent a car by the hour, with hourly fees that include fuel and insurance.

Zipcar provides carshare services in Orlando and DeLand.

How Zipcar Works

  • Join – Apply online today. Once you are approved, you get your very own Zipcard and can start planning road trips.
  • Reserve – Reserve a Zipcar for a couple of ours or the entire day. Do it online or on your mobile.
  • Unlock – Walk to the car and hold your Zipcard to the windshield for a few seconds. The doors will unlock and it’s all yours!
  • Drive – Drive away … and return to the same reserved parking spot at the end of your reservation. That’s it! (And remember, gas and insurance are included.)

Other Programs

ZipCar is available at the University of Central Florida and Stetson University.


Bikeshare programs provide access to fleets of bicycles for short-term use. Typically, riders download a mobile app to locate and unlock the bicycles. Fees are determined by the amount of time the bicycle is in use.

There are multiple bikeshare programs across Central Florida, including Zagster in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral, as well as HOPR and Lime Bikes in Orlando.
