Fleet Services manages vehicle rentals for employees and student groups traveling on official university business.
In order to rent a vehicle, you must have a valid driver’s license and be traveling within a 300-mile radius of the campus. Cars, eight-passenger vans and 10-passenger vans are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals wishing to drive a 10-passenger van must complete a Fleet Services training class prior to renting the vehicle. Individuals wishing to travel beyond 300 miles of the university can arrange a non-university rental vehicle with Fleet Services.
Complete the following steps to rent a vehicle:
Rates include re-fueling at the Baltimore County gas station and toll charges for most Maryland toll plazas. Each university vehicle is equipped with a WEX gas and roadside assistance card, a Baltimore County gas card and an E-Z Pass transponder. Instructions on using these materials can be found in each vehicle’s information guide.
Fleet Services will arrange rental vehicles for employees and student groups traveling beyond a 300-mile radius of campus or when a university vehicle is unavailable. Rental arrangements for all commercial vehicles should be processed through Fleet Services by completing and submitting a request form. Due to rental company policies, some age restrictions may apply. Please note that university employees renting cars for university business should elect not to purchase additional insurance on the vehicle – the liability of vehicles rented to the state is covered by the Maryland Tort Claims Act.
