Central Motor Pool

The UConn Health Central Motor Pool allows units to reserve passenger vehicles for business purposes such as traveling to in-state conferences and training, to visit satellite locations or to meet with vendors and contractors. Having a centralized motor pool makes it easy for departments to take vehicles on short notice or for periods less than a single day without having to spend the extra money and time reserving through either the DAS Fleet Operations Center or a private car rental company. To reserve a vehicle, please complete the LM-11 form and contact the Logistics Management Help Desk at 860-679-1958.
