In Episode 2 of Ride News Now with Alison Haislip, Enterprise wants you to have a new car every week, a California company hopes its scooters are the next Uber, and a smartphone app unlocks the mysteries of dashboard warning lights.

  • Let’s start with Enterprise, a rental car company with a solution for anyone who really, really loves new car smell. “Subscribe with Enterprise” lets you hop into a new car or truck every week, all costs included. The problem…the cost is $1,499 per month!
  • Next up is Bird, a California-based scooter company that wants to get San Francisco residents onboard for a monthly membership. For $25 dollars each month, you have your very own scooter, and skip Bird’s public ride-sharing models – yeah, the same ones the city recently banned.
  • And last, there’s an app to solve the riddle of what your car telling you. Carnostic taps into your car’s computer and trouble-shoots problems, schedules maintenance, and even has a creepily named “Black Box Mode” to record your trips and speed.
