Special Message Regarding COVID-19
Non-essential travel is currently suspended.
Out of an abundance of caution and in line with guidance from local, state, and federal authorities concerning use of high-density vehicles, UNC Greensboro is limiting the use of vans during COVID-19 due to the challenges with social distancing in vehicles. Therefore, with very few exceptions, Motor Pool will not be able to reserve 8, 12 or 15 passenger vans until further notice.
Any contact that lasts more than 15 minutes and is within 6 feet of another individual constitutes a ‘close contact’ – if one of those individuals is determined to have the virus and have been in the infectious period during the time of contact, the other(s) must quarantine for 14 days. It is extremely difficult to maintain a 6 foot radius for multiple individuals in a multiple-passenger vehicle. Vehicles can also be challenging due to limited airflow. Because of this, the University will not permit the use of multiple-passenger vans for the transportation of students this semester.
The University recognizes that departments occasionally require the use of motor vehicles. To meet this need, UNCG Motor Pool provides employees and campus organizations with reliable transportation for travel to carry out University responsibilities.
Please plan ahead and submit reservation requests at least 3-4 business days in advance. 12-15 Passenger and Cargo Van requests should be submitted ASAP as there is a shortage of vans and no guarantee for availability. Expect to receive a response via email within 72 hours. The email response will include billing/payment information as well as pick-up and drop-off instructions. All van rentals must be picked up at the branch. The link to request a motor pool vehicle is below.
Drivers are required to have a valid driver’s license, be 21 years of age, and meet the following employment criteria:
- ❖ University motor pool vehicles shall be driven only by University employees and used for official state and University business only. University employees are defined as individuals working for the University for wages and salary. Employees must receive a University payroll check.
- ❖ Students who are employed by the University and receive a salary or a payroll check may drive vehicles while performing duties within the scope of the job for which they are being paid. Students, such as those on scholarship or fellowship, who are not employed by the University, are not allowed to drive state vehicles.
- ❖ Visiting lecturers, scholars, scientists, and professors with or without appointments, as well as adjunct and emeritus professors may drive state vehicles only if they are currently employed by the University and receive a University payroll check.
- ❖ Volunteers, persons working for the University, but not receiving a payroll check, may not drive state vehicles according to the state rules and guidelines.
Drivers are responsible for refueling vehicles prior to return. A surcharge will be assessed for vehicles returned with less fuel than when vehicle was picked up. If you have an urgent need for expedited service, please call (336) 334-5681 or (336) 334-5912.
Parking citations are the responsibility of the assigned driver or the driver’s agency at the time of issue. It is the responsibility of the individual driver to observe all state motor vehicle laws and ordinances. All violations and fines shall be the responsibility of the driver or agency.
