Transportation Services coordinates the rental of University vans to assist the transportation needs of faculty, staff, students and University sanctioned organizations conducting official University business. Only persons directly engaged in the Universi ty activity for which the van is to be used may be passengers in the vehicle. The vehicles are not available for personal purposes and may not be kept overnight at an employee's or student's place of residence, except as authorized.
Trips outside a 500-mile one-way radius of Saint Louis University require a department-approved adult volunteer (21 years or older) to accompany students. When more than one vehicle is taken on a trip outside a 500-mile one-way radius and only one university faculty or staff member is involved, the vehicles must travel as a caravan.
Vehicles obtained through the SLU Van Service may not be operated by any person under the influence of alcohol, illegal substances or any drug impairing the operator's ability to safely operate the vehicle.
