ST. LOUIS – WeCar, a car sharing program from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is now available nationwide. The new offering provides an easy-to-use, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly hourly car rental option.

The national availability of WeCar makes Enterprise the first major car rental company to offer a business-to-business car sharing program throughout the United States.

“Car sharing provides a convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to have a car when you need one during the day,” said Jeff Parell, senior vice president, Enterprise. “Our WeCar program can be customized to fit the unique needs of any of our partners, including businesses, government agencies, and universities. So, it gives employees or students the flexibility to attend off-site business meetings, visit customers or vendors, or run personal errands.”

Enterprise announced a pilot WeCar program earlier this year at Washington University in St. Louis, offering a fleet of hybrids available for faculty, staff, and student use. Since then, Enterprise has begun partnering with new customers such as Recreational Equipment, Inc., (REI) in Kent, Wash.

After enrolling in the WeCar program, members can reserve a vehicle online for all transportation needs — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cars are placed in designated, easy-to-find parking spaces where they can be accessed electronically. The technology behind WeCar makes reserving and using the vehicles possible without paperwork.

The WeCar fleet is made up largely of hybrids and other fuel-efficient vehicles.

Parell noted that a key strength of the WeCar program is Enterprise’s position as the largest U.S. rental car company, with more than 6,000 neighborhood locations located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population.
