And when you really have to have a car…you STILL
don’t need to bring one!


• ZipCar
    Internet-based service allows you to rent a car for an hour or two or an entire day when
    you really need it. ZipCar maintains 7 vehicles on the Brown campus for hourly rental by
    Brown ID holders who are 18+ years of age. See www.zipcar.com/brown.

• Enterprise Rental
    Brown has an agreement with Enterprise Rental that allows Brown-affiliated drivers 21+
    years of age, instead of the traditional age limit of 25+ years, to rent vehicles on a daily or
    weekly basis at a corporate rate whether the rental is for personal or business use. In
    addition, Enterprise will pick you up and take you to their nearest rental location if you
    need transportation to their offices in order to rent a car. See
