Saint Louis University will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in front of the Center for Global Citizenship to officially kick off the start of the Enterprise CarShare service on the SLU campus. The event was rescheduled due to rain on Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Enterprise CarShare, a car-sharing service from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, membership is now available for students, faculty and staff. The membership-based, automated car rental option offers a sustainable, efficient and cost-effective transportation alternative. Enterprise CarShare vehicles are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with low rates by the hour, day, overnight and weekends. Registered members will have access to vehicles that will be located on the parking lot adjacent to Queen’s Daughters Hall.
Starting immediately, new members can join for $1 and receive $5 hourly driving rates until Saturday, Dec. 31. The membership includes fuel, dedicated parking spaces, insurance, maintenance and easy reservations via the Enterprise CarShare mobile app. All students, faculty and staff ages 18 and up with a valid driver’s license, including international driver’s licenses, can join at www.EnterpriseCarShare.com/slu.
Laura Forhan, director of Parking and Card Services, Transportation, Mail and Data Management, calls the program a strong addition to others programs currently in place.
“In an effort to enrich the student experience beyond that of what the Metro Pass and University shuttles can provide, we are partnering again with Enterprise to bring CarShare to campus, allowing the SLU community additional freedoms to explore the city of St. Louis and beyond,” Forhan said.
Enterprise CarShare’s automated rental process though the mobile app allows members to log in and reserve a vehicle anytime, anywhere. SLU will have two vehicles, a Nissan Sentra and a Nissan Note, located in the parking lot adjacent to Queen’s Daughters Hall at 3730 Lindell Boulevard. The spaces are striped in green and designated with CarShare signs.
