U.K.-based Enterprise Car Club, part of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is more than doubling the number of its carsharing vehicles in the city of Birmingham: from six to 15 vehicles.

The new hourly-rent vehicles are being stationed all around central Birmingham. Two vehicles are near the Broadway property development at Fiveways, providing on-site mobility for residents in a location where parking is at a premium, according to the company.

Another vehicle is parked at the University of Birmingham in the designated Green Travel District between the train station and hospital.

In addition, three of the carsharing vehicles will be based at Birmingham city center branches of Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

“Accessing services like car hire where and when we need it is an increasingly important part of all our lives,” said Keith Kelly, business development sales manager at Enterprise Car Club. “Car club vehicles are fast becoming a must-have for urban dwellers, particularly in areas where parking is a challenge.”

“Access to a ‘Virtual Car’ means business and residents no longer have to worry if they don’t have a vehicle when they need one,” added Kelly. “We see this expansion plan as an important step in delivering car club services across the city, and wherever possible, integrated with local transport hubs and services.”
