Vehicle Rental

The goal of the Transportation Services Motor Pool is to make a variety of vehicles available for rent to Notre Dame departments, students, faculty, and staff for the purpose of carrying out University business.

When vehicle needs are sporadic, use of the Motor Pool is a convenient alternative to purchasing a vehicle or entering a long-term lease.

Please note that the University PROHIBITS the use of 15 PASSENGER VANS for ALL University students, faculty, and staff.

Reserving a Vehicle

Due to the high volume of reservation requests, we ask that you provide a 48-business hour notice for ALL vehicle reservations.  Reservations placed with less than a 48-business hour notice are subject to availability.

Reserving a vehicle is as simple as accessing the Transportation Services' Vehicle Reservation System and clicking on the MAKE RESERVATION label under VEHICLE USE.  If you need to request a vehicle type that is not listed under Rental Rates, you can note that in the comments section of the reservation request form.
