Enterprise CarShare has launched a short-term car rental service aimed at University of Delaware (UD) students and staff.
Delaware is the latest campus to sign up for the service, which targets people who typically need a vehicle for just a few hours.
Richard Rind, UD’s director of auxiliary services, says: “Many UD students and community members don’t have access to a car to take them where they need to go.”
The service, part of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, will initially cost UD members $5 per hour which includes petrol, insurance and a daily mileage of 200 miles.
Enterprise is waiving the application fee of $25 as well as the membership of the same amount for the first year. Users will receive $10 in driving credits and the $5 hourly rate until 28 February 2019.
Reservations are made, modified and extended via an app.
Enterprise is not the only mobility company seeking to tap into the student market: last month, Grab launched a three-month pilot to provide electric scooters to the National University of Singapore’s Kent Ridge campus.
