CarShare now available: A message from Dean LeBlanc

DATE: January 17, 2023
SUBJECT: CarShare has arrived at Hendrix!

Dear Hendrix community members,

Hendrix is pleased to be partnering with Enterprise CarShare to provide a new, flexible transportation option to the Hendrix community. Two CarShare sedans now have reserved parking spaces between the Dawkins Welcome Center and the SLTC. Visit www.enterprisecarshare.com/hendrix to learn more and get started. The page will answer most of your questions, but here are some of the essentials up front:

Cost: The sign-up fee is $20 (a $10 one-time application fee plus a $10 annual membership fee). To register, users must

  • be at least 18 years old,
  • have a valid drivers license, and
  • have a credit card in their own name.

Memberships typically take 8-10 days to activate, so set up your account at least 10 days before you plan to use CarShare for the first time.

Rental Rates: Monday-Thursday rate is $7.50/hr or $60/day; Friday-Sunday rate is $8.50/hr or $70/day.

Fuel included up to 200 miles: Each car comes with a gas card. A series of videos on the Enterprise/Hendrix CarShare page provides information about this feature and others. For complete details, see the Hendrix CarShare policy guide.

We hope students, faculty, and staff will take advantage of this resource and use it responsibly (i.e., return the cars as agreed, with fuel and a clean interior). Whether you need to make a trip to a store across town or take a group of friends on an in-state weekend getaway, consider CarShare as an option that may fit your needs.

Sincerely,

Michael LeBlanc

Acting Dean of Students
