Questions & Answers about the New UCH Central Motor Pool:

The intent of this service is to encourage the shared and controlled use of distribution & passenger vehicles for official State business, and eliminate the need for single department ownership of vehicles. The program will reduce the individual departmental costs associated with administration, fuel, maintenance and lease/rentals by implementing a central pool of vehicles.  This program will also reduce the number of parking spaces required, and eliminate the need for personal vehicle use for distribution, and associated liabilities.
