Rent Vehicles on Campus by the Hour

No car on campus? No problem! UCLA Transportation has teamed up with Zipcar, the nation's largest provider of carsharing services, to give Bruin students, staff and faculty access to vehicles parked all around campus for mobility when you need it. Pay only for the hours you use, and the hourly fee covers the cost of the car, mileage, insurance, parking, gas and maintenance.

How it Works

Register to become a Zipcar member. You’ll receive a Zipcard, which is your key to this innovative program.

  • Reserve a car by web or phone at a moment’s notice.
  • Get your vehicle. Use your Zipcard to unlock the Zipcar. You will find the ignition key attached to the steering column.
  • Return the Zipcar vehicle to the designated parking space, leave the ignition key, lock the doors and walk away!
  • Zipcar will send a monthly billing statement itemizing the hours and miles you drove, and charge that amount to your credit card.

Zipcar Bruin Commuter Club

UCLA staff and faculty members who participate in the Bruin Commuter Club are eligible to receive a $40 Zipcar credit each month. Click here to sign up and learn more. 

To be eligible for the program you must be a UCLA staff or faculty and:

  • Have a University appointment of at least 43.75% time
  • Not possess a UCLA parking permit

After UCLA Transportation verifies your eligibility, we will send you a Zipcard along with more information. If your monthly Zipcar usage exceeds $40 per month, sign up for a personal account as well and you can choose to bill the additional hours directly to your personal account. The integration of your BCC and personal account are seamless, just select the account you want to use from a drop down menu while making your reservation.

Thanks for sharing the ride!
