With the close-out of the University Fleet approaching, a
forum is scheduled to take questions from IUP faculty and staff members on possible
issues or concerns regarding the
final phase-out of the fleet vehicles. The forum will take place on Tuesday, May 6, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Gorell Recital Hall, located on the
second floor of Sutton Hall.
Representatives from the Administration and Finance Division and
from Enterprise will be available to answer questions concerning the transition.
IUP will complete the phase-out of the internal automotive
fleet on June 30, 2014, when the current 12 fleet vehicles are retired from
service. Travelers who have utilized the
IUP auto fleet vehicles will need to utilize alternate transportation for their
official university business travel needs. Alternative methods include renting from the Enterprise-Rent-A-Car
(Enterprise) program or the Enterprise Car Share program. Other alternatives would be use of personal
vehicle (an option, but perhaps not the most cost effective one).
There are many positive reasons why obtaining a vehicle from
Enterprise for conducting official university business makes sense. Below are just a few:
can also rent a vehicle by calling the Enterprise Office at 724-465-5944, but
you must obtain the IUP Corporate ID number and PIN from the IUP Travel Office.
