Enterprise CarShare has pulled its service out of the Washington, D.C., market due to lower-than-expected demand, according to a report by the dcist.com.

Enterprise CarShare operated in D.C. for four years.

"After carefully monitoring and evaluating demand for local carsharing service for the past several years, Enterprise has decided to scale back its car-sharing operations in Washington D.C.," the company said in a statement. "The local program was not able to establish itself as a sustainable transportation alternative for the long term."

Enterprise CarShare is also leaving the Boston, Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco markets, according to the report. The company plans to continue its operations in Toronto, New York, Philadelphia, and London.

Existing reservation in D.C. will be honored through the end of July, says the report.
