Enterprise CarShare formally announced yesterday — at the 2015 International Car Rental Show — that it has joined the CarSharing Association, a not-for-profit organization committed to advancing cooperation between urban mobility providers, cities and public transit.

The announcement was made during the Car Rental Show’s session “The Convergence of Carsharing and Car Rental,” which highlighted the important role that the car rental industry plays in the evolution of urban mobility.

Moderated by Alan Woodland, executive director of the CarSharing Association, the panel discussion included Enterprise CarShare’s Kyle Sabie as well as three other industry experts.

The CSA is a global industry trade group with members in 11 countries.

“We work closely with public transit authorities and city officials to serve as advocates for a portfolio of mobility options,” said Woodland. “Enterprise CarShare is a well-established player in the industry, and we’re glad to have their help in expanding support for sustainable urban mobility in communities around the world.”
Enterprise CarShare is available in more than 35 U.S. states, Canada and the U.K., on nearly 100 university campuses and through 40 dedicated government and business accounts, according to the company.

“At its core, carsharing is a car rental transaction, whether you rent for an hour or a week and whether you do it in person or digitally,” said Sabie, corporate rental manager for Enterprise CarShare. “Car rental companies like Enterprise are applying the technology many of us associate with carsharing to make picking up a car accessible and seamless for anyone, not just carsharing members.”
