Here Comes Zipcar

It's nice to see San Francisco is getting a second car-sharing service. Kelly has been doing the City CarShare since last year, and it seems to work pretty well (I especially like how you can reserve pickup trucks for big items).

But it can be a bit pricey if you drive a long distance. Maybe Zipcar will bring some needed competition, since it sounds like they give you more free miles.

And apparently Zipcar has flashier cars, like BMWs. (Zipcar says people might use the BMW to impress people at a business meeting — though I wonder if having a big Zipcar sticker on the car would detract from that.)
