Need a car? Borrow a Zipcar! Northern Illinois University has partnered with Zipcar to bring self-service, on-demand car sharing to the area. To use Zipcars, simply register as a member, reserve a car online or by phone, use your Zipcard to enter the car, and drive away. When you’re done, return the car to the same location where you picked it up.

April is Earth month, and Zipcar is offering new members a $15 driving credit with code JOINSPRING2019 to help build more environmentally friendly and sustainable transportation. The promotion can be redeemed any time before May 31, 2019; and the driving credit will be available up to 30 days after the promotion is redeemed. Current members can also redeem the $15 in free driving promotion by entering code ZIPSPRING2019. 

As a member you get:

  • Access to Zipcars 24/7.
  • Discounted hourly rates for faculty, staff, and students age 18 and older: rates start at just $7.50/hour or $69/day.
  • Gas, insurance, and maintenance are included for free!
  • Join for only $15 a year for the first year ($25 after that).

You can find NIU's Zipcars in Lot D, west of Neptune Hall West, Lot 15E, at the Campus Recreation Center and Lot X, north of New Hall. Learn more and get started.
