Our roadmap into the future
The impact of our neighbourhood network on the future of sustainable transit is most clearly seen among urban populations where car hire plays an increasingly important role.
We believe that by embracing, promoting and practicing sustainability, we benefit along with the environment. It’s about getting people involved. It's good for our people, our customers and our business.
Today's Enterprise Network
Our expertise in fleet management, paired with our commitment to sustainability, is a powerful combination. It's important that we address our environmental impact as a business, as well as ensure our fleet relies more on renewable fuels. We offer the latest car models, which are more efficient, including electric and hybrid vehicles.
