Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last week a new partnership between Metro-North Railroad and Zipcar, a leading provider of vehicle sharing services. The collaboration between the Metro-North and Zipcar focuses on launching car share services in the Hudson Valley. Zip car is already hugely popular in major metropolitan cities like NYC but bringing these services to locations in the Hudson Valley will allow visitors to easily travel throughout the region and visit many tourist destinations.

The Governor says a program like this will bring new, convenient travel options to New Yorkers and boost Hudson Valley Tourism.

“This new partnership will provide a convenient and economic travel option to allow New Yorkers and visitors alike to explore the Mid-Hudson Valley, further boosting the region’s tourism economy,” Governor Cuomo said. “I encourage New Yorkers and tourists alike to take advantage of this program and experience this region’s natural beauty and recreational options for themselves.”

According to Governor Cuomo a total of 14 Zipcars are available and are parked at dedicated, clearly marked spaces at Metro-North station lots. Meaning customers can easily step off the train and hop right into a Zipcar thats fueled up and ready to go. Each Zipcar reservation includes gas, insurance, maintenance and 180 miles of driving per day. Zipcars will be available at the following stations; Harlem Line: North White Plains and Woodlawn; Hudson Line: Poughkeepsie and Beacon; New Haven Line: Port Chester, Harrison, Mamaroneck, Pelham and Mount Vernon East.
