New lower daily rental rates for Penn State Fleet vehicles
Faculty and staff who travel for University business can save money with new lower daily rental rates for Penn State fleet vehicles.
Transportation Services recently reduced the daily rental rates for several Penn State Fleet vehicle models, including mini vans, mid-size 4WD (SUVs), mid-size hybrids, and mid-size sedans, Penn State's most frequently-rented vehicle type. The lower daily rental rates, combined with no-charge fueling via the Wright Express fuel card (provided with each rental), make Penn State Fleet vehicle rentals the most cost-effective option in many instances for University business travel.
Renting a Penn State Fleet vehicle is similar to renting from a commercial car rental agency, but Transportation Services offers features geared specifically to University departments, such as direct billing to University budgets (including toll charges connected to the E-ZPass included with each vehicle), evening and weekend vehicle pick-up and return, and no-charge, on-campus parking at the Fleet Operations building. Fleet Operations is also served by the no-fare Campus Shuttle, and offers free bike storage locker use for renters.
