Zipcar, a membership-based car-sharing service that enables members to reserve a car via the Web, phone or an iPhone app, this morning announced the addition of former eBay CEO Meg Whitman to its board of directors. She will be replacing long-time Zipcar investor and board member Jim Gerson, who is giving up his seat.

Whitman led eBay from 1998 to 2008. After her tenure, she ran for Governor of California, won the primaries, but lost to Jerry Brown in the November 2 election despite spending roughly $160 million on her campaign.

(By the way, someone please tell her her website is down).

Zipcar says it now boasts more than 530,000 members and 8,500 vehicles in urban areas and college campuses throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Former AOL CEO turned investor Steve Case is also on the Zipcar board, as is John Mahoney, vice chairman and CFO of Staples.
