Zipcars are available at Holy Cross for students and general public to rent. The cars are parked in the student lot behind the Hogan Campus Center. To be eligible to rent a car, drivers need to apply for a Zip Card and pay an annual fee. Rental costs are $7.50-8.50 an hour depending on the vehicle (including gas, insurance, and parking fees). Each car will have a fuel card for the purpose of refueling as needed (all costs incurred by Zipcar).
