Zipcar Members Can Now Reserve A Car On Facebook

Car sharing network company Zipcar this morning announced the release of a Facebook application that allows its members to ‘reserve their wheels’ on the popular social networking site without having to leave it.

The Nasdaq-listed car-sharing company warns that the app is being tested in public beta for now. Aside from booking a vehicle, members can also use the app to check car availability, view upcoming reservations and change existing reservations.

Facebook users who do not yet have a Zipcar account can use the app to find car locations or join Zipcar.

Zipcar says the app was built after member surveys showed that more than 88 percent of its members use Facebook.

The company also offers a mobile website and native Android and iPhone apps.
