Vehicle Acquisition

Departments can rent through Fleet, short or long-term, or purchase their own vehicles. Fleet Services can help you determine the best type of vehicle to suit your needs and find the best deals. We will also help you navigate license, insurance and registration requirements. All vehicle purchases must be approved by Fleet Services and the Purchasing department. Purchases may be restricted to Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) due to UCOP sustainability goals.

University vehicles should be replaced every 8 years, 130,000 miles, or if repairs exceed the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Please contact Fleet Services at (951) 827-2277 or by email at to discuss your vehicle needs.
