DRIVING MORE EFFICIENTLY
Through our own practices and research, and through partnerships with manufacturers, local governments and the insurance industry, our vehicles and the way they are managed is under constant analysis for improvement. We invest in cleaner fuels, new technologies and operational efficiencies.
TESTING AND SHARING
We believe that allowing drivers to test hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as trying newer concepts like car sharing, is key to changing the face of transportation over time. This gradual acclimation helps to increase demand, which in turn will result in more charging stations and more access to urban transportation services.
Several of our Enterprise locations now offer gas/electric hybrids
98% of Enterprise’s airport shuttle buses now run on cleaner fuel
Enterprise CarShare is active on more than 125 university campuses and more than 40 dedicated government and business campuses in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
GREATER EFFICIENCY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
We look for efficiencies in our processes and programmes as much as we do in our vehicles themselves. Saving administrative work and hours of time for our employees, partners and customers not only helps to uphold our sustainable goals, but also improves the experience for everyone.
ENTERPRISE CAR SHARE
Our Car Sharing programme provides automated access to vehicles in urban areas at an hourly rate.
Our Automated Rental Management System (ARMS) streamlines the rental process between our branches, insurance companies and garages, saving thousands in operational energy and paperwork. This programme is currently available in the USA, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
New in 2012, OnRamp Concierge uses QR codes to keep serving customers after they’ve left the carpark, via their smartphones. This programme is currently available in the USA and Canada.
Some assert that biofuels are increasing the price of food, but that's not the case if we adjust our diets and use non-food sources for biofuels.
New developments in the field of synthetic biology have put new interest and energy behind algae as a viable alternative fuel source. Thanks to the work of Dr. Sayre and others, you could be filling your tank with algae-based fuel sooner than you might think.
Enterprise Holdings and GM discuss working together to bring alternative-powered vehicles to consumers in a discussion at Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
