Dear Mount Ida Community,

I am pleased to announce that Mount Ida College is partnering with Zipcar.

Students, faculty & staff at Mount Ida College can now have wheels with no strings attached. Zipcar, the world’s leading car-sharing service, is now on campus, with two Zipcars available in the Campus Center lot.

Here’s how it works:

There are four simple steps to Zipcar freedom.

  1. Join today at
  2. Reserve a car online or on your phone for as little as an hour or as long as seven days.
  3. Scan into the car using your Zipcard. (The keys are already in the car.)
  4. Drive away. (Just make sure to return the car at the end of your reservation.)

With Zipcar parked right in the Campus Center lot, it’s easy to check out Newton Centre, get downtown, run errands, or even take a road trip. And since Zipcar covers gas, insurance, and 180 miles per day, you can enjoy the freedom of the open road without any of the extra costs.
