USU Motor Pool and Fleet Operations

Utah State University is a wide and diverse organization that utilizes a fleet of approximately 700 vehicles to accomplish its mission of research and teaching. The Motor Pool is charged with the responsibility of coordinating the purchase, use, maintenance and disposal of USU's fleet in accordance to USU Policy #514.

To accomplish this task the Motor Pool is divided into three areas: 1. Vehicle Rentals which houses and makes available some 70 vehicles to departments for long and short-term rentals to accommodate travel needs of both individual and groups up to 15 people. 2. Service & Repairs whose responsibility it is to ensure USU's fleet is safe and reliable. With a well equipped shop and well-trained mechanics, USU 's ability to service and inspect vehicles is a vital support link for all campus departments and operations. 3. Fleet Operations is the central point of coordination and integration of USU's fleet with the State of Utah's overall fleet system mandated by state law and statues. This includes management of the fleet so as not to increase in overall numbers and to ensure accurate and detail vehicle use and maintenance records are kept including fuel and service

The Motor Pool also serves as the local outlet for gasoline, diesel and compressed natural gas fuels as operated and managed by the State of Utah. In addition the Motor Pool serves as a resource for all vehicle related items including training and implementation of campus wide policy and instruction.
