Grand Rapids could see a car-share service with 10 vehicles starting this fall if the city authorizes a partnership with Enterprise, which currently operates a smaller program at Grand Valley State University. The car share program would enable customers to reserve a car online and get into it using a code. They would be billed at the end of each drive, based on time.
Life without a car is getting easier in Grand Rapids, MI. The whole “walk-ability” factor is really driving the city’s growth even when it comes to purchasing investment properties. Hot areas like Eastown promote easy living, with restaurants, shops and more all within walking distance of your home. Easy access to public transportation is becoming a sought after amenity in Grand Rapids. Is this car share idea one more way to increase the walk-ability of Grand Rapids? We hope so! The City of Grand Rapids is aiming to have the agreement with Enterprise in place by October 1st. This program is going well at Grand Valley State University’s Allendale Campus. It seems as if the need is just as great near the downtown area.
