Zipcar and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) today announced a unique partnership that equips 200 Zipcars in Massachusetts with annual state park passes, enabling residents and visitors to explore the outdoors. Members of Zipcar can now reserve a vehicle equipped with a pass by visiting http://www.zipcar.com/dcr and park for free throughout the state parks system from now until the end of the year.
“An important element of the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s mission is to increase awareness and visitorship at our state parks system, which is one of the best in the world offering natural and historical locations to visit throughout the Commonwealth,” said DCR Commissioner Leo Roy. “Whether traversing the summit of Mount Greylock or enjoying a respite from the summer heat at Horseneck Beach, Zipcar vehicles will enable members to discover some of the most breathtaking landscapes Massachusetts state parks has to offer.”
The state parks system offers over 450,000 acres of parks, forests, reservations, reservoirs, and beaches to explore, and include important natural, cultural, and recreational resources. Additionally, the state parks system offers over 4,000 miles of trails, and is home to diverse flora and fauna throughout the Commonwealth. Zipcar is excited to work with DCR to offer our adventure-seeking members an even easier way to enjoy the just in time for summer.
