Certain units have university-owned vehicles that may be available for use, including 12-passenger vans, which are subject to additional restrictions on use set forth in the attached Appendix (Passenger Van Safety). Cars, 12-passenger vans and trucks may also be rented through the university's contracted rental agency (see Section VII). Drivers also use personal vehicles on university business and in the course of university-related activities. Personal vehicle use is discussed under Section V.
