AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin’s roads just got a little more festive this holiday season with the addition of Santa’s sleigh, Zipcar’s Ford Focus Hatchback.
The car, complete with Christmas music, candy and Santa hats, is available to be reserved by Zipcar members from Dec. 23-28 at 300 East 21st St., the company says.
One dollar per reservation will be donated to Toys for Tots to help less fortunate children this holiday season.
“Santa only uses his sleigh once a year, so why should he have to deal with the costs and hassles of year-round ownership?” said Kaye Ceille, Zipcar president.
Seven other cities are getting the Santa sleigh-themed zipcars, each with one of Santa’s reindeer names. The Austin sleigh is named “Dancer.”
