The Hertz Corp. has been chosen as the preferred car rental company of Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town (PCVST) in New York City.

Hertz will provide ExpressRent Kiosks in each of the six Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town's garages. ExpressRent Kiosk agents are available 24 hours a day, providing customers flexibility on when they wish to rent and return their vehicle, says the company.

"We are always looking for ways to help our customers travel at the speed of Hertz with ease and simplicity," said Louis Scarpelli, Hertz region vice president. "Partnering with Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town and offering our latest technologies to its residents, gives them the fast, easy convenience of using the Hertz ExpressRent Kiosks and Hertz 24/7 technologies for their travel needs."

Hertz ExpressRent Kiosks are equipped with a touchscreen interface and a second screen that allows customers to interact with live customer service agents via video to pick up existing rentals, says the company. These kiosks minimize customer wait times, accept payment with a debit or credit card, validate a customer's driver's license and print the rental agreement.

"We're thrilled to bring this level of service to our residents, so that the next time they're going on a weekend road trip or need a car to pick up extra groceries, they will be able to pick up a car right at their doorstep at any time of day," said David Sorise, senior vice president of CompassRock Real Estate. "Our partnership with Hertz will significantly expand our residents' travel options."

PCVST residents will receive Hertz benefits, including Hertz Gold Plus Rewards loyalty program, complimentary Hertz 24/7 memberships and car rental discounts, both locally and when traveling outside NYC, according to Hertz.
