Duke University

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.
