Enterprise Ends Car Sharing Experiment in Several Cities

Enterprise, the Missouri-based car-rental company, recently announced it’s halting its CarShare service in a number of key U.S. cities. Naming a lack of consumer demand as the reason, Enterprise is curtailing its car sharing business in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Denver and Washington, D.C.

Just a month earlier, Enterprise suspended CarShare in Chicago because vandalism, theft and fraud had conspired to create a lack of availability of car sharing vehicles, according to the Chicago Tribune.

CarShare is a membership-only service providing by-the-hour rental of vehicles in assigned parking spots throughout participating areas. Usually, the rental fee includes expenses like insurance and fuel. Available anytime day or night, these vehicles can be reserved through smartphone apps.

College student and professor members may still be in luck in the discontinued cities, as Enterprise will continue to offer CarShare near college campuses. It will also continue CarShare operations in other participating cities like New York and Philadelphia, the Chicago Tribune reported.
