CarShare & Rideshare

In 2007, Enterprise was the first major car rental company to offer a car sharing program across the United States. Since then, we’ve made several significant enhancements.

SHARING COMES NATURALLY

Car sharing is a natural extension of the local car rental service that Enterprise Rent-A-Car pioneered. Enterprise CarShare originally began under the network of our neighborhood hourly car rentals in 2005 and evolved into a larger, local car-sharing service provider known as WeCar by Enterprise in 2007. As WeCar transitioned to the Enterprise CarShare name and we entered large urban markets, we continued to provide services for consumers who rely on mass transit rather than owning a vehicle, or need another mobility option. Across the U.S., Canada and the U.K., Enterprise CarShare is now available on more than 125 university campuses and more than 40 dedicated government and business campuses.

EXPANDING IS BENEFICIAL

In 2011, we acquired Philly CarShare in Philadelphia and in 2012, Mint Cars On-Demand in New York City and Boston. By 2013, all programs consolidated under the Enterprise CarShare name, offering customers convenience through flexibility, thanks to the support of the world’s largest fleet of vehicles and the largest neighborhood network. Each of the acquired fleets were quickly integrated into our local car rental operations and upgraded with newer vehicles – increasing the size of the fleets and expanding service to new neighborhoods to better serve customers. With all programs being consolidated under the Enterprise CarShare name, we can offer customers reliability through flexibility, thanks to the support of the world’s largest fleet of vehicles and the largest neighborhood network.

RIDING TO WORK, TOGETHER

By taking cars off the road, the Enterprise Rideshare vanpooling program reduces traffic congestion, commuter time and driving costs, as well as vehicle emissions and fuel consumption by taking cars off the road. A typical Enterprise Rideshare vanpool program involves five to 15 coworkers riding together, with each paying a low monthly rate. Enterprise Rideshare works especially well for companies that also have an Enterprise CarShare program in place, thereby providing a solution for first- and last-mile transportation to and from work, and for errands during the day.
