Hertz expands car sharing programme

The Hertz Corporation is expanding its car sharing fleet in the greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area, growing its car sharing programme, Hertz On Demand in the nation’s capital.

With a range of cars – from electric vehicles, available at Union Station, and compacts to sedans and SUVs – available both in parking garages, outdoor spaces and in 23 on-street parking spots, the Hertz On Demand fleet in metro Washington, D.C. will be one of the largest and most diverse in the District.

“By making vehicles readily available in more locations, Hertz On Demand is making car sharing more convenient and accessible to Washington, D.C. residents, visitors and workers,” commented Mark P. Frissora, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hertz. “Hertz On Demand is free to join with no annual, membership or late fees.  Our member benefits, which far exceed those of our competitors, coupled with our selection of cars really enables members to specifically choose the car they want for the trip they are taking.”

Hertz On Demand vehicles will be available in all 8 Wards of the District including Union Station, Adams Morgan, Connecticut Avenue NW, Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Anacostia, H St. NE, Logan Circle, Dupont Circle, Columbia Heights, Takoma, Cleveland Park, Friendships Heights, Georgetown, and South Capitol Street. As the program expands, additional locations will be opened throughout the city and surrounding suburbs, including Virginia and Maryland.

Local residents and visitors can sign up online, and start reserving cars from one of Hertz On Demand’s locations to experience the enhanced member benefits offered by the car sharing club.
