COVID-19 travel guidance

To help minimize the spread of COVID-19, Fleet Services continues to thoroughly clean and sanitize all vehicles between reservations.  If you wish to wipe down common surfaces in the vehicle yourself, a bottle of disinfectant spray and paper towels is available at the front desk. Customers may also use personal disinfectant wipes if they prefer. For more information, please refer to the Environmental Health & Safety FAQs on the university's Ready site. 

  • When there are two or more passengers, vehicle occupants must wear a face covering at all times while in the vehicle.
  • No one should sit directly behind anyone or in the same row, but rather sit diagonally to maximize physical distancing; for instance, a 4-door vehicle with two rows of seating can have one driver and one passenger.
  • Please refer to the illustration below for Fleet Services' van configurations.
  • Each traveler should be assigned a specific seat. Maintaining the same driver and passenger seat assignments will decrease the need for cleaning.
  • The driver of the vehicle is responsible for cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces inside and outside the vehicle. 
  • High touch surfaces include exterior and interior door handles and grips, interior door and window controls, arm rests, safety belts, cup holders, glove/storage compartment latches, air vents, gear shift, center console (climate/audio controls), steering wheel, visors, and rear view mirror.
  • Surfaces will be cleaned before and after use and when occupants change position.
  • One person per row and alternating sides.
  • Maximize air movement within the vehicle using a combination of the climate control system and windows so each passenger receives fresh, un-recirculated air.
  • Researchers participating in field work should be assigned to a specific travel group, and remain in that travel group for the duration of the work season/semester, to minimize potential transmission to others participating in the same research project.
  • When fueling the vehicle, wear disposable gloves to minimize contact with high touch surfaces. Use pay at the pump options if available.

About Fleet Services

Tucked away on the southeast corner of campus behind Lane Stadium and neighboring the Facilities Complex, the Fleet Services team manages the university’s rental fleet of approximately 150 state vehicles. Employees and students are able to reserve these vehicles for business purposes, on a daily or long-term basis.

Vehicle options include small and large sedans, trucks, minivans, 12-passenger vans, an 18-passenger bus, and a 36-passenger bus.

Individuals who rent a vehicle must have a valid parking permit to park on campus. Customers who have not yet purchased a permit can request a temporary permit when picking up their vehicle.

We look forward to serving all your fleet needs.
