Transportation Services

In the fall of 2008, the Parking Services Office also assumed responsibility for the University’s fleet vehicles.  “Transportation” was added to the official title, and the office is now known as the Office of Parking and Transportation. Any campus department or organization wishing to utilize university transportation may make reservations through the Parking and Transportation Office.
