    Zipcar has 673,000 members and 8,900 vehicles in urban areas and on college campuses in the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.

    Zipcar Inc. is expanding its Zipvan service to Greater Boston and Washington, D.C., following a successful test in San Francisco that began in November. Cambridge-based Zipcar is adding 15 Ford E-150 full-size cargo vans to its Boston-area fleet. The vans are available for hourly or daily rental, with rates starting at $15.75 per hour and $109 per day. The company said it will continue to evaluate the van service and decide whether to expand it across North America.
