Zipcar Launches Service Throughout Baltimore


Zipcar, backed by Steve Case‘s DC-based Revolution investment firm, has launched its service throughout Baltimore, placing 22 of its cars at locations across the city.

Zipcar, which already had serviced several Baltimore-area universities, including Johns Hopkins University, Goucher College and Towson University, now has 45 cars in the metro area. Members reserve vehicles online or through mobile devices, use a smartcard to open the doors, then return the cars at the end of their reservations. An hourly or daily fee covers gas, insurance, maintenance, parking and emergency service.

The company earlier this month filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to raise up to $75 million in its initial public offering (IPO).
