This fall students, faculty and staff will have access to a new sustainable transportation service that will be offered on campus — hourly car rental.
The service will be offered through WeCar by Enterprise. Anyone in the FGCU community who is 18 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license can become a member in the program. Hourly rates include gas.
Peter Cuderman, student body president, says the program is needed by students who don’t bring cars to campus and “don’t want to rely on other people and be forced to be dependent on other people” to leave campus.
According to the WeCar main website, “Like a true community, WeCar members are concerned about their environment. That’s why most cars in the WeCar fleet are hybrids and all are very fuel-efficient. And because car sharing can help reduce the total number of cars on the road, WeCar members help contribute to a cleaner, greener environment.
Sign-ups are scheduled to begin July 17 during orientation. Eagle News will have more details after the program launches.
