Locations in Golden

Zipcars are now available in Golden in the downtown parking garage at 1250 Jackson Street, on the first level. The service has begun with two cars, a Jeep Wrangler and a Ford Focus, but vehicle types can change depending on the preferences of customers. There are two additional Zipcars available on the Colorado School of Mines campus, and more cars may be added within Golden over time if usage grows.
