The world’s largest car-share network will now have Yakima bike racks available on its vehicles in more than a dozen North American cities – with no surcharge.
Hyundai Elantras and Subarus will be among the more than 150 automobiles in the Zipcar fleet equipped with Yakima’s FrontLoader racks, which can hold up to two bikes.
So far, the racks are available on vehicles in the following cities, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., Sacramento/Davis, Calif., San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Fla., Washington D.C., and Vancouver.
According to the Outdoor Industry Association’s ConsumerVue research, 34 percent of the outdoor consumer market lives in cities. Zipcar and Yakima’s partnership enables urban adventurers to live a car-free or car-light lifestyle without sacrificing their ability to get out of the city and enjoy their favorite outdoor activities.
“We are very excited to partner with Zipcar and create these adventure vehicles. Our bike, ski and board mounts make it extremely easy for city dwellers to have awesome outdoor experiences with friends and family,” said Ryan Martin, chief executive officer of Yakima.
To reserve Zipcars with Yakima racks, members tap “Car Model” when making a reservation and look for the Yakima logo.
