UW Tacoma's motor pool is a third party car rental service coordinated by Transportation Services for use by UW students, faculty and staff when UCAR vehicles are not available.
Motor pool is a secondary service to UCAR. Please be sure to check UCAR availability before submitting a motor pool request.
Prior to reserving, taking possession of or operating any motor pool vehicle, customers must complete driver safety and awareness training.
All motor pool requests must be made through the Motor Pool Request Form. Once processed, customers will receive confirmation, and rental information will then be coordinated by the rental company.
All motor pool requests by UW Tacoma student groups and organizations must be approved by Elizabeth Hansen, Assistant Director of Student Involvement. Requests that are not approved will not be processed.
All motor pool requests by ASUWT, the Student Activities Board, and Volunteer Services must be approved by Surtida Shelton, Associate Director of Student Development. Requests that are not approved will not be processed.
Reservations are usually processed within 2-3 business days.
