Enterprise CarShare at Alexandria Metro Stations

Enterprise CarShare @ Braddock Road Metro Station in Alexandria, Virginia
As readers know, Enterprise CarShare earlier this year took over the car sharing contract at area Metro stations from ZipCar. As of June 1, Enterprise has begun providing car sharing service at 125 Metro-owned parking spaces located in 45 Metrorail stations and, in the near future, will expand up to 190 spaces. You can see the cars located at Braddock Road Metro Station in the photo above.

The partnership with Enterprise extends the reach of Metrorail and Metrobus by giving riders who may not own a personal vehicle flexibility and easy access to vehicles conveniently located at or near rail stations.

Car sharing services have been offered at Metrorail stations since 2001, allowing Metro customers to pick up a vehicle just steps from the train or bus to run errands, shop or reach any other business or social event not easily accessible via public transportation. Members of the car-sharing service pay an annual fee, along with hourly and daily rates for the use of a vehicle, which also includes gas, insurance and a guaranteed spot where the car is parked. However, as part of Enterprise’s special introductory offer, the annual fee and application cost (a $65 value) are being waived until July 31, 2015.
