  1. Nice! Eagle Rock is much closer to Echo Park than the next closest ZipCar location at USC.

    Why is ZipCar only marketing to college students in LA, rather then the general population? They should be in every walkable community, Echo Park included, where a portion of residents live car free. Back East, I’d use ZipCar at least 2-3 times a week. Here its so inconvienent, I use it maybe twice a year to pick up my parents at LAX. Its almost like ZipCar doesn’t *want* my money.
