This Saturday at 9am, ZipCar will be launching it's new car in South Atlanta at Community Grounds - 1297 Jonesboro Rd, Atlanta, GA 30315.
There will be free coffee and pastries, a ribbon cutting ceremony, and an opportunity to sign up for their service.
I am asking that we have as many residents from South Atlanta, Lakewood Heights, Chosewood, Peoplestown, High Point, and others here between 9am and 10:30am as possible. Here is why:
1) ZipCar is treating us to the coffee and pastries :)
2) This is a major corporation investing in our neighborhood and taking a risk on us (ZipCar is owned by Avis). We need to show them, and others, that South Atlanta can support economic investment such as this. If ZipCar is successful, they may place cars other places and/or other companies will begin to take notice.
3) I truly believe that ZipCar can be beneficial for our neighbors with limited access to transportation. However, many of them/us may not know about ZipCar. Bring them out, or come yourself and get educated so you can help people know what it's for and how to us it.
I hope that you can make this a priority for Saturday morning. Let's show them we support their investment in us!
