Uber is partnering with Enterprise to rent cars to potential Uber drivers for $210 a week in a pilot program that’s launching this week in Denver, Colorado.
The ride-share service is targeting potential drivers who either don’t have a car or whose car can’t be used under Uber’s standards—drivers’ cars must be in good condition and under 15 years old.
Uber already has a car leasing program that it runs in partnership with Xchange Leasing in a dozen major markets around the country. But the Enterprise partnership seems to be targeting a more flexible, short-term kind of driver, someone who might only want to drive for Uber for a month rather than six months. The rental, however, can be extended as long as the driver wants (and as long as the driver is in good standing with Uber and Enterprise).
