Enterprise to Offer Car-Sharing at Washington University

Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) and Enterprise Rent-A-Car have partnered to bring WeCar, a car-sharing program, to the campus, according to the university’s Reporter.

The program, the first of its kind in the area, allows WUSTL students, faculty, staff and employees of qualified service providers over age 18 to rent vehicles at an hourly rate. The vehicles will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Registration, which is free, is available online.

Those enrolled in the program will have access to a fleet of six hybrid vehicles strategically parked in four areas throughout the campus.

Each is available hourly through an online rental system and can be kept overnight for an additional charge.

The Reporter say that initially, four Toyota Prius and two Ford Escape vehicles will be available for WeCar members' use, but Enterprise may make adjustments regarding available models as demand patterns emerge.
