The WeCar car-sharing program is now available at the School of Medicine. The program, a partnership between WUSTL Parking & Transportation Services and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is designed to promote sustainability and to make it easier for faculty, staff and students to use public transportation, bicycles or carpools to commute to and from campus, especially with the closure of Interstate 64.
A Toyota Prius WeCar is available for use by students, faculty, staff and employees of qualified service providers over age 18 for $10 per hour. Registration, which is free, is available online at wecar.com/wustl. Print and complete the enrollment agreement, and within a few days you will be issued a personal key fob and customer PIN. Then go online to reserve a time to use the vehicle, parked on Surface Lot E off McKinley Avenue near Olin Residence Hall.
The program became available on the Danforth Campus in January.
“The students jumped right in, and there is a core group of employees who use the cars,” said Lisa Underwood, director of Parking and Transportation Services on the Danforth Campus. “The biggest demand has been on weekends, so we’re looking to increase weekday use. Response from the overall community has been great.”
