Zipcar, who jilted Beacon Hill recently, will be making two announcements today: one, a car sharing partnership with the City of Seattle, and the other, the grand opening of a new storefront-type office at 380 Union Street downtown. We’re told there will be an open house from 9:00 – 5:00, where you can join Zipcar for no annual fee, win driving credit and swag, and eat Zipcar’s free snacks.
However, there is no indication yet that Zipcar will be serving Beacon Hill again, so it’s unclear where Beaconians would actually be using the driving credit. Seems like a good opportunity to tell them what you think about the abandonment of the Hill, while eating their free food. Score!
Edited to add: The partnership with the City of Seattle is apparently free Zipcar for city employees.
