The San Antonio Business Journal says Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental are sharing shuttles, cutting the combined fleets from 16 to seven vehicles:
All of the shuttle buses are also being fueled by 20 percent biodiesel, a cleaner-burning alternative fuel.
Enterprise Holdings owns and operates Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental. The company decided to combine the shuttle service for the three operators after the airport opened its new two-tiered roadway in March, which the airport developed to relieve traffic congestion at the airport.
“Combining our shuttle bus service supports the San Antonio International Airport in reaching its goals of reducing congestion, especially at a time when our market share is growing at the airport,” says William Gold, vice president and general manager for Alamo, Enterprise and National in San Antonio. “More importantly, customers have reacted positively to the combined shuttles, noting the significance of our environmental efforts and the use of biodiesel in our buses.”
Officials say the move will ease congestion and help clear the air.
