Car Sharing with Google Maps

The car-sharing company Zipcar uses Google Maps to help members find their nearest available cars.

Members can select to view a Google Map of their city that displays the locations of cars available nearby. The map includes the option to find nearby cars by model and by type of car. It is therefore possible to filter the cars displayed on the map to find your favorite make of car or to find a van, convertible, hybrid etc.

The map sidebar provides useful information about the available cars, including details about the model and the hourly and daily rates of hire.
