City of Loveland
The City of Loveland, Colorado has partnered with Enterprise Fleet Management to replace about 40 aging sedans, pickups, and vans in the City fleet with vehicles equipped with the same automated rental technology of Enterprise CarShare (formerly WeCar).
“Our shared motor pool will enable us to reduce our overhead, maintenance and insurance expenses while providing safe, reliable and fuel efficient transportation for city employees who use these vehicles,” said Steve Kobler, Fleet Manager for the City of Loveland.

Through a partnership with Enterprise, Duke students and employees have been given the opportunity to adapt to electric vehicle technology with the presence of 16 fuel-efficient Chevrolet vehicles, including four Chevy Volt extended-range electric vehicles on their campus. “It’s another step Duke has taken to become carbon neutral,” said Brian Williams, transportation and management coordinator for Duke. “We’re a community that knows that programs like this save us money on the cost of transportation and keep our campus beautiful.”
Duke’s transportation office has calculated the savings to individual students who take advantage of the car sharing program and compared to the cost of owning a car – estimated at $370 a month, including car payments, gas, parking and insurance – a student could have access to nearly 50 hours of drive time from Enterprise, which is more than most students drive in a month.
