Article by Anita Panait, on September 27, 2013

Zipcar Inc. has expanded its Detroit fleet from 10 vehicles to 40 units. Most of the car-sharing company’s units in Detroit are Ford Motor Co. nameplates, like the Escape compact crossover and Focus compact car. The Zipcar vehicles are located in public and private lots and garages around the city -- Downtown, Midtown, New Center, Woodbridge, Rivertown and Hamtramck.

A Zipcar spokeswoman said that the company has had vehicles on Wayne State University's campus in Detroit since 2011 and added two vehicles to its Detroit fleet in August. The car-sharing service allows customers to rent vehicles hourly or daily with rates starting at $9 per hour and $75 per day. The rates include fuel, reserved parking spots, insurance, roadside assistance and up to 180 miles of driving each day.

"We're proud to stand alongside Zipcar as a valued partner, as they expand operations to Detroit," said Amy Marentic, group marketing manager, global cars and crossovers at Ford. "This is a city brimming with possibilities, and we're thrilled that our vehicles will be a symbol of growth and opportunity." [source: ZipCar]
