As part of a pilot car-sharing program in Boston, Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C., the General Services Administration (GSA) has selected Enterprise CarShare and Zipcar as car-sharing providers.

This pilot one-year program will provide government employees in these four cities with access to car-sharing vehicles 24/7.

“Car-sharing initiatives help federal agencies reduce costs, improve service and optimize their use of vehicles,” said Bryan Scott, who coordinates with federal offices and government agencies for Enterprise Holdings. “Through this program, government agencies can test-drive car sharing in the coming months to experience how it meets their transportation needs.”

"Zipcar is a smart solution that allows federal employees to have membership access to a wide range of vehicles at locations across the city to meet the demands of their job, while also allowing government agencies to reduce transportation costs," said Kaye Ceille, Zipcar president.
