Enterprise CarShare, a car-sharing service from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is now available to Penn State students, faculty and staff at the University Park campus. A cost-effective alternative to car ownership, the membership-based service offers the freedom and flexibility of using a vehicle while only paying for the hours it is being used. Enterprise CarShare vehicles are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with low rates by the hour, the day, overnight and weekends.
Use of the Enterprise CarShare service is limited to personal use only, and may not be used for travel related to University business.
New members can join for $1 and receive $5 hourly driving rates until Dec. 31. All Penn State students, faculty and staff ages 18 and up with a valid driver’s license, including International Driver’s Licenses, can join at www.EnterpriseCarShare.com/psu. The membership includes fuel, dedicated parking spaces, maintenance and easy reservations via the Enterprise CarShare mobile app.
Enterprise CarShare’s automated rental process through the mobile app allows members to login and reserve a vehicle anytime, anywhere. There are currently six Nissan Sentra vehicles available for rent from the following campus locations (map available at the Enterprise CarShare website):
- Lot Brown 11 (White Course Apartments) - Nissan Pathfinder SUV
- Lot 42 (Nittany Apartments) - Nissan Altima and Sentra sedans
- Lot 81 (South and Pollock halls) - Nissan Altima and Sentra sedans
- Lot Yellow E (along Curtin Road across from Visual Arts Building) - Nissan Altima sedan
While state-minimum physical damage and liability insurance coverage is provided, users are strongly encouraged to verify coverage through their own insurance provider before registering for this service.
