Stony Brook and WeCar by Enterprise Rent-A-Car have partnered to provide a cost-effective and convenient car-sharing solution to students, faculty, and staff. WeCar offers registered members access to three Nissan Altima hybrids on campus. The vehicles will be parked and available at West Apartments and the Campus Residents Offices at Mendelsohn Quad.
WeCar is an automated, membership-based car-sharing program that provides students, faculty, and staff with an environmentally friendly transportation solution that helps remove vehicles from the road to reduce emissions and traffic. The cars are available around-the-clock so members can access them at any time, making WeCar a convenient and cost-effective transportation alternative.
Students (18 and older), faculty, and staff are eligible for membership. Vehicles can be reserved online at any time and can be rented hourly, overnight, or for a full day.
WeCar’s on-campus program is popular with students because it provides a solution to car rental age restrictions and eliminates financial concerns associated with having a car on campus. For faculty and staff, WeCar car sharing offers a transportation alternative for personal and business use.
“We anticipate that resident students will utilize this service rather than bring their own car to campus, which will reduce campus vehicle congestion as well as our environmental footprint,” said Angela Agnello, Director of Marketing and Communications, Faculty Student Association.
As part of Enterprise’s strong presence on campus, WeCar has already recruited a student for its WeCar Brand Ambassador internship program on. Ambassadors conduct on-campus marketing activities to raise awareness of WeCar and increase program membership. The paid internship program is active on nearly 20 campuses where WeCar operates in the United States.
WeCar’s fleet of hybrids, electric vehicles, and other fuel-efficient vehicles supports Enterprise’s commitment to growing the market for alternative fuels and technologies. Interested students, faculty and staff can sign up online now at www.wecar.com.
