Enterprise Car Club is showcasing eight new low-emission hybrid electric cars in the Highlands and Isles of Scotland, which can be booked using the new GO-HI trip planning app.
The GO-HI app allows users to plan, book and pay for a trip using multiple transportation options, including Enterprise car rental and coach club, trains, buses and ferries, according to Enterprise.
The four Toyota Yaris and four Hyundai IONIQ will be placed at 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 an hour.
Enterprise Car Club now has 260 low-emission road vehicles in 18 cities across Scotland.
“We are 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, Director of Sales Enterprise rental car for Scotland. “Local residents, business travelers and tourists can now quickly switch to a rental vehicle after taking a train, ferry, bus or plane, which greatly simplifies their journey, especially to places accessible only by car. electric and hybrid vehicles as part of the regular Enterprise fleet. Many of our cars are plug-in or hybrid to provide more choice and allow drivers to keep an eye on their carbon footprint as they travel.
GO-HI was 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 encourage people to move away from single-occupancy cars and switch to car sharing and public transportation when traveling in this region,” said Ranald Robertson, director of HITRANS.
