College Owned Fleet Vehicles
Bates College has two vans which can be reserved through the Department of Security and Campus Safety. These vans are available for direct support of the College’s co-curricular and formally organized extracurricular programs. The vans can accommodate up to 11 people. All operators under 25 years old who wish to operate a college owned vehicle must take the Driving Training Class and submit the appropriate paperwork with the Department of Security and Campus Safety before being allowed to drive.
Availability and Use of College Vehicles
The Transportation Coordinator along with the Department of Security and Campus Safety are responsible for the administration of the College’s fleet of two 12-passenger vans, all of which are available for rental by student organizations. Vehicle maintenance and safety inspections are the responsibility of Facilities Services in conjunction with the Department of Security and Campus Safety.
Due to the limited number of fleet vehicles, the College is unable to accommodate every request. Fleet vehicles are available for use by student organizations in order to facilitate College academic, business and student life needs. Official College business includes: Community service transportation, academic class trips / projects / needs, administrative trips, authorized student groups and clubs and intercollegiate athletics.
