BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The president of a national company came to Baltimore Monday for a big announcement: Zipcar is expanding in the city.

Mary Bubala reports they say that only means good things for city residents.

Office hours are now posted and Zipcar now has new and bigger office space in Harbor East.

“This area really encapsulates our vision of making cities better places to live through multimodal transportation options,” an official said.

Along with new office space, Zipcar has added five more vehicles to the road, bringing the grand total of cars in Baltimore City to more than 200.

“We’ve recently discovered that our partnership has helped keep 3,000 cars and trucks from parking in our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. “It would have cost $75 million to build a garage to house those vehicles and so I want to thank Zipcar for helping our residents get around and keep our city moving.”

Zipcar says it gave urban dwellers an alternative option to car ownership, with benefits including convenience, cost and a more sustainable choice.

“We actually use Baltimore as one of our model cities in which we like to bring to other cities,” said Zipcar President Kaye Ceille.

Zipcars first came to Baltimore City four years ago. Driving rates range from $8 to $10 an hour.
