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.
