Car Sharing comes to St Louis

Car Sharing- the WeCar program for downtown St Louis: "Car sharing has arrived in Downtown St. Louis. The program will be known as WeCar an initiative of Enterprise Rent-A-Car based in St. Louis and the St. Louis Car Sharing Cooperative formed by Citizens for Modern Transit and six other sponsors.

Car sharing provides a big benefit to transit riders, enabling them to get along with fewer cars. Transit riders also can use WeCar for the CMT Guaranteed Ride Home program rather than a taxi for that emergency ride.

For those who ruled out transit because they need their car during the middle of the day for errands or meetings, WeCar is the perfect answer - providing them an option and an even bigger incentive to use transit."
