Enterprise Rent-A-Car has launched a new car-sharing programme - WeCar. The trial programme, based in Woking, has been developed in partnership with Woking Borough Council to support its corporate sustainability initiatives.
Employees at Woking Borough Council now have the option of booking one of two dedicated WeCar vehicles when making short trips for business.
The sub-120 g/km vehicles, based in Woking’s central multi-storey car park, are available for up to four hours at a time, with employees are able to book the vehicles via the dedicated WeCar website.
Through the use of in-car telematics, when their allocated time arrives, they can unlock the vehicle with their WeCar membership card and drive away. As the programme grows, the technology will also be able to advise users of their nearest available vehicle.
The programme also helps tackle employees using their own vehicles for work, the so-called ‘grey fleet’.
After the initial trial, it is anticipated that the programme will be extended to local businesses and residents.
Rob Ingram, director of business rental at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, said: “WeCar is a solution that not only offers extremely low CO2 vehicles, but provides them only for the time they are needed. It also introduces an alternative to the grey fleet, helping to mitigate the risks associated with private car usage, together with reducing cost and emissions.”
