Enterprise CarShare – served by the local Enterprise Rent-A-Car network – is now offering free downtown parking in Salt Lake City to members who rent a hybrid vehicle, all in partnership with the city government. The free metered parking is part of a new green vehicle initiative, says Enterprise.

Vehicles that achieve a minimum fuel economy or air pollution score are designated as “green vehicles,” and therefore eligible for a special permit allowing up to two free hours of parking.

“By making the most of alternative forms of transportation like car sharing, as well as by promoting the use of hybrids, we can help Salt Lake City residents get around more sustainably,” said Neil Hafer, vice president and general manager for Enterprise in Utah. “This opportunity to offer free downtown parking is just one more added benefit for our Enterprise CarShare customers.”

When Enterprise’s car-sharing program launched in Salt Lake City in late 2013, the area became the seventh major U.S. market to offer Enterprise CarShare, says the company. Today, the car-sharing program is available in more than 35 U.S. states, Canada and the U.K., on more than 80 university campuses and on 40 government and business campuses.
