The timing of the launch and the exact downtown locations are still under review, but it should be within the next two months. Campbell and Zipcar representatives are considering locations in the vicinity of Third and Delaware streets in the River Market; Baltimore Avenue between 13th and 14th streets in the Power & Light entertainment district; 19th or 20th and Main streets; and in front of the Blue Cross Blue Shield offices across from Union Station at 23rd and Main streets.

Dave, do you know if the City sought out Zipcar expansion or if Zipcar planned on their own? If City pursued it, would like to see them pursue Westport/Plaza area next. At only $9/hour, would be cheapest private way for airport runs and much less than Uber.
BTW, here is their KC map, in a couple months up to 4 downtown locations should appear...
BTW #2, the thread title should probably drop 'at UMKC' now that they are expanding.
