DARTMOUTH – University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is the latest college campus to offer Zipcars.

UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack announced the partnership on Feb.1. “This … will provide a cost-effective transportation solution for students, staff, and faculty while also demonstrating our commitment to sustainability.”

Cambridge, Mass.-based Zipcar, Inc., operates the world’s leading car-sharing network, according to the school’s news release.
