Enterprise CarShare Membership Program

Car sharing allows students, faculty, and staff to rent a vehicle by the hour providing a transportation option for those who do not have a vehicle on campus. GVSU partners with a Membership-Based Program Enterprise CarShare, who owns and operates the program. Enterprise CarShare is owned by Enterprise Holdings, the parent company of Enterprise Rent-a-Car and National Car Rental.

  • Vehicles are reserved online, accessed using a membership card and returned to the same location where the car was picked up.
  • New members: please allow one week for initial license verification and mailing of your membership card (needed for access to rental vehicle).
  • Members must be age 18 or older, have a driver's license and a credit card in member's name.
  • Members age 18-20 must also provide proof that they are insured on an insurance policy that has full coverage (does not need to have a car rental rider), and their parent/guardian must complete an online acknowledgement form.
  • Enterprise CarShare vehicles have been on campus since October 2012.
  • Enterprise CarShare representatives will be on campus regularly throughout the fall and winter semester for marketing and education.
