Enterprise Car Club has ‘more than doubled’ its number of on-street vehicles in Cardiff to promote sustainable and active travel.
The car rental company reported a 55% growth in the number of car club members in Cardiff in response to growing demand.
Enterprises’ general manager for South Wales, Carl Henderson, said: “We are delighted with the growth of our service in Cardiff and the support from the Council and our members. This forms part of our programme of expanding Enterprise Car Club across the UK, reaching communities large and small, to enable more flexible, low emission and value for money access to a car when that is the best choice for a trip.”
The expansion of the car club supports Cardiff Council’s aim of delivering more integrated public and shared transport to reduce congestion, improve air quality and promote active and sustainable travel.
Plans put forward in the Council’s recently published White Paper include measures to make car club vehicles easier to access for more people as part of developing a joined-up transport network, which will help people move around sustainably and efficiently.
Eighteen low-emission and hybrid vehicles are now available for rental parked on streets across Cardiff. Enterprise Car Club is also available at eight other towns and cities in Wales including Swansea, Holyhead, Wrexham, Monmouth and Ruthin.
Membership to the Cardiff car club give users access to a network of more than 1,400 on-street low emission, hybrid and electric vehicles at Enterprise Car Club locations across the UK.
