We’re excited to let everyone know that as of August 13, 2015 Local Motion has been acquired by Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network. Zipcar and Local Motion have a lot in common: we share a commitment to provide an exceptional experience for our users and we see car sharing as the future of mobility.

Since Local Motion was founded nearly five years ago, we’ve learned a lot about helping people reserve, locate, access, and return shared vehicles. We’re excited to bring what we’ve learned to Zipcar where we’ll be working on a number of projects to drive the future of mobility further and faster.

The last five years have been truly amazing. We’ve had the chance to work with phenomenal people to found, fund, and now sell our company. We’re truly humbled by this experience.

We can’t wait to see what this combination of brilliant people can do. To learn more about Zipcar, please visit www.zipcar.com

See you on the road,
-John, Clement, and the Local Motion team

Access any vehicle with just one tap

You will never have to worry about car keys again.

One badge. Every key.

Once our device is installed, you can grant and restrict access based on your fleet’s needs. Employees can then unlock and drive any authorized vehicles simply by tapping their employee RFID badge.

Works with anything on wheels

From utility trucks and golf carts to electric vehicles and luxury sedans, Local Motion can be deployed in vehicles across corporations, universities and government campuses.

Get the vehicle you need, when you need it

With our mobile app and website, drivers can easily discover available vehicles and make bookings. For immediate access, our color-coded LEDs show the status of the vehicle right from the parking lot. See a green light? Tap your badge and be on your way.

Control your fleet like never before

With our cloud-based platform, get a bird’s eye view of all your vehicles to make on-the-ground decisions anytime, anywhere.

Lock & unlock remotely

Stranded outside a vehicle? Forgot to lock the car before you walked away? Simply lock or unlock the vehicle from the web.

Keep tabs on your vehicles

With GPS tracking, vehicle status and detailed usage history, have all the information you need to stay on top of your fleet.

Control access on the fly

New driver? Activate a new badge in seconds. Lost badge? Deactivate it with just a click. Any change in restriction of a badge comes into effect immediately.

Get alerts that matter

From speeding alerts and late returns, to engine light and low battery levels, you can customize and receive the alerts that you need.

Handle maintenance with ease

Time for an oil change? Due for service? Schedule a block on the vehicle. Our system will automatically prevent driver access and reservations.

Make better decisions

With Local Motion’s advanced analytics and custom reporting, you will have access to actionable data to make the right decisions for your fleet.

Maximize utilization of your motor pool

Great driver experience increases the demand for car sharing, allowing vehicles to spend more time on the road.

Traditional motor pools

Vehicles are often assigned to specific departments or individuals and spend most of their time unused in a parking lot.

Motor pools with Local Motion

Keyless access means under-utilized vehicles can now be easily shared with more drivers, helping you increase your fleet’s overall performance.

Check out our step-by-step guide on how to set up a successful motor pool.
