The easiest way to have the best day ever

In terms of getting Pru shoppers over to Chinatown for suckling pig bao with kimchi, the T’s a pretty effective means of transportation. But when it comes to jetting off from dinner at Ma’s in “Rev-ee-yah” to a deal-not-yet-sealed second date in Cambridge -- not to mention leaving the city entirely -- the average mass transiter's kinda sunk

That’s where Zipcar comes in. This alternative to rental, ownership, and hitchhiking offers cars, trucks, and vans by the hour or day, enabling members to do anything from moving heavy furniture to actual fun stuff like the fantastical day-trip ideas listed below

Need more incentive? Members of the car-sharing service not only get gas, insurance, and maintenance included, but they’ll never have to worry about paying for corrective surgery on their eardrums after listening to some dude play a saw with a violin bow. Nice.
