"This new program between Zipcar and Cook County is another great example of smart City-County collaboration," said Charles Stephens, general manager, Zipcar Chicago. "We applaud President Preckwinkle and Cook County for their commitment to innovation and developing smart transportation solutions that promote sustainability and fiscal responsibility, while helping to create efficiencies. We're proud to support so many government transportation initiatives throughout the State of Illinois, and we look forward to bringing on more departments to help further reduce costs while increasing mobility."In March 2011, the City of Chicago became the first city in the country to integrate both the use of Zipcar's FastFleet technology in their existing fleet and Zipcar for Business. By using this combination of Zipcars and fleet sharing to eliminate fleet vehicles where concentration of Zipcar can meet demand, the City of Chicago program has reduced their non-emergency light duty fleet by over 20 percent (more than 950 vehicles in 2007 vs. less than 750 today), and is netting over $500k in savings annually.
