Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the rental giant based in the St. Louis Region, has finally announced a new car sharing program called WeCarâ„¢.Â First up, Washington University:
Washington University in St. Louis’ Parking & Transportation Services and Enterprise Rent-A-CarÂ© have partnered to bring WeCarâ„¢, a car-sharing program, to the university’s Danforth Campus.
The program, the first of its kind in the St. Louis area, allows Washington University 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.Â (Full press release)
The press release indicates is an all-hybrid program.Â Initially WashU’s campus has four Toyota Prius hybrid models and two Ford Escape hybrid SUV’s.Â Sources tell me that downtown St. Louis locations will soon be announced.
At this time the wecar.com website just lists an email address to contact for more information.Â However, at the Wash U version of site is a tad more info.
I cannot begin to express how excited I am by this announcement. Being car-free in St. Louis just got easier.
