Low Emission vehicles – Enterprise

At Enterprise, one of our main focuses as a family owned business is to operate with the next generation in mind. This deep sense of stewardship plays out in how we manage our company and the way our business operates within the surrounding environment.

One of our solutions for sustainable travel is with Enterprise Car Club. Our Car Club provides fully a fully telematic, low emission, 24/7/365 access solution for transport users. The most recent expansion to our network in the North East is in Partnership with Cobalt Business Park. By locating several modern, low emissions vehicles in the business park, those working at Cobalt now have a sustainable transport solution.

Working with Lynn and the team at Cobalt, local journey profiles were analysed, identifying the need to provide a demand responsive business travel option. The provision of Enterprise Car Club for business journeys removes the need for users to bring their own vehicles to work. This then unlocks the potential for users to walk, cycle, journey share with a colleague or access local bus services for their commute.

In the current climate and in response to COVID-19 Enterprise Car Club supports the need to travel while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Enterprise Car Club ensures the integrity of its vehicles by committing to a ‘Complete Clean Car Pledge’. Every vehicle is sanitized after every use giving users the confidence that they can travel safely and in comfort.

Many new members have been welcomed to our Enterprise Car Club, and we look forward to expanding our network to help with the effort to bring sustainable travel to the North East.
