Editorial: Students have access to new rental car program

Every time you put gas in your car, make a payment to the bank, or pay for a repair, or even send the insurance man a check, you get a sobering reminder of what is costs to go somewhere.

And we live in a region where public transportation is almost unavailable.

So, in steps Georgia Southwestern, with a rental-car option.

GSW students, many of who don't have easy access to transportation, can rent a vehicle from the school.

GSW began a partnership with Americus' RDR rental car service, after the school surveyed students, who said such a service was a great idea.

If you're 21, have a driver's license and a credit card, you're approved.

Students said renting a vehicle is much easier than carpooling, and GSW officials say they may even expand the program.

We say it's a great idea, and we encourage other colleges to take a look at this car rental program for their students.
