The Detroit Free Press reports on a new partnership between Ford Motor Co. and Zipcar, the car-sharing service, to increase the number of Ford vehicles that Zipcar uses in college towns nationwide. From the report: “Ford and Zipcar will offer $10 off the $35 annual membership fee for the first 100,000 new university students members who sign up for Zipcar, plus $1 off the hourly rate for the first 1 million hours of use on any of the new Ford vehicles at select colleges and universities. New Ford vehicles start arriving on campuses this week.” Zipcar operates in Ann Arbor and has several locations on the University of Michigan campus. [Source]
