Early this month, Zipcar added Downtown LA to their “carsharing” locations in Los Angeles allowing drivers to rent a car for a few hours or even a few days. Carsharing is especially attractive for those who do not own cars but may need to take a short trip outside of the city or perhaps to pick up something from Craigslist or Ikea.
Three Zipcars have been added to the PacMutual Building located at 6th and Grand in the Financial District (also formerly known as the Pacific Center before Rising Realty Partners purchased it in April 2012). In case you’re curious about what kind of cars are on stock: a Honda Civic, Mazda 3, and Toyota Prius.
The process is easy as pie:
1) You join/register with Zipcar
2) You reserve the car online
3) You unlock the car
4) You drive away
There are also another two Zipcars located just down the street from PacMutual at the Pegasus Apartments: a Mini Cooper and a Honda Civic.
