Enterprise Car Club is introducing eight new low-emission hybrid electric cars in the Highlands and Islands region of Scotland, which can be booked using the new GO-HI journey planning app.
The GO-HI app enables users to plan, book, and pay for a trip using several transport options, including Enterprise car hire and car club, trains, buses, and ferries, according to Enterprise.
The four Toyota Yaris and four Hyundai IONIQ cars will be placed in Fort William (two cars), Aviemore (two cars), Ullapool, Kyle of Localsh, Scrabster Ferry Terminal, and Wick Airport. They can be booked for as little as £5.90 per hour.
Enterprise Car Club now has 260 low-emission on-street vehicles across 18 cities in Scotland.
“We’re delighted to add these car club vehicles, which are an important step in creating ‘mobility hubs’ around existing transport services in the Highlands and Islands," said Murray McAdam, Enterprise business rental sales manager for Scotland. “Local residents, business travelers, and tourists alike can now quickly switch to a rental vehicle after taking a train, ferry, bus, or plane, making their onward journey much more straightforward, especially to places that can only be accessed by car. We are actively facilitating access to electric and hybrid vehicles as part of the regular Enterprise fleet. Many of our cars are plug-in or hybrid to offer more choice and enable drivers to keep an eye on their carbon footprint as they travel.”
GO-HI has been developed by HITRANS, the regional transport partnership, in association with the Mobilleo MaaS platform. Project partners include Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Car Club, Bewegen, Brompton Bike Hire, Stagecoach Bus, West Coast Motors, Inverness Taxis, ScotRail, Loganair, Shotl, Skedgo, Orkney Ferries, and Northlink Ferries.
“Enterprise’s growing fleet will help to encourage people to move away from sole occupancy cars and into shared cars and public transport alternatives when they travel in this region," said Ranald Robertson, director of HITRANS.
