Philadelphia is one of the best areas for getting around without owning a car… even beyond the city limits. Public transportation can bring you all around the city for less than $3, regional rail can take you far into the ‘burbs, and for your weekend adventures of apple picking, hiking in the woods, and getting out of the city to take photos of the fall colors? There’s Zipcar.
Zipcar is the world’s leading car-sharing network, and for good reason. You can book a variety of cars by the hour, or by the day, on a college student budget (use code CampusPhilly718 when you sign up before 8/25/18 for a $10 discount!) There’s available Zipcars on campuses all across the Philadelphia region, and with a quick sign-up process, you can be en route to the best spots in no time.
As any Philly-area college student knows, a trip to the South Philly IKEA is essential before moving in. With a VIP Zipcar parking space available, your move-in process (and packing your car with all of the things) will be a breeze!
Once you’re settled, it’s time to start planning some off-campus adventures. You can quickly and easily take Zipcar to explore a new area of the region at some really fun fall events, such as United By Blue’s cleanup of the Darby Creek at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge on August 25, 2018. It’s just a few miles from the city, but the beauty of the area makes you feel like you’re seomewhere else entirely.

Make sure to reserve a Zipcar for Saturday, September 8 – it’s Campus Philly’s annual CollegeFest celebration at Dilworth Park! Join college students from all over the area at the day-long festival featuring games, prizes, swag, live music, and so much more to give you a taste of all that Philadelphia has to offer (just be sure to register ahead of time so you can skip the line!) There are plenty of locations to park your Zipcar, and your new friends will be grateful for the ride!
Visiting Longwood Gardens in the fall should be a rite of passage for any college student. It’s a quick drive away, easy to get to, and there’s plenty of Zipcar parking spots available. Check out the Longwood Gardens event calendar to see what’s going on this fall and plan a trip!
Don’t forget to sign up for Zipcar before August 25, 2018 so you can get a $10 discount! See you out there in Philly – we’re so glad you’re here!
