UNCW Motor Fleet heard from departments and individuals—through surveys and department meetings—that the services provided by motor fleet were not meeting campus needs. These issues were having an impact on classes, programs, and individual travel.
After careful study, UNCW Motor Fleet and UNCW’s Travel Office, with the assistance of Purchasing Services, partnered to create a new service using Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The Travel Office is making the transition to Enterprise EASY FOR YOU. The popular mini-buses at Motor Fleet will continue to be available for class field trips, special tours, and other needs.
Thursday, November 21 at 9 a.m. in Hoggard Hall 249

Each week in SWOOP, through the end of the semester, we will feature benefits of the program and answer frequently asked questions.
Just a few benefits are:
- Newer vehicles with lower mileage
- Lower cost to the university, and in most cases, to departmental budgets
- No out of pocket expenses; insurance will be provided by the state
- Enterprise will deliver and pick up the vehicles directly to designated areas around campus
Motor Fleet will continue to honor the requests that have already been submitted. However, for your convenience, the Travel Office also offers the new Enterprise rental service. The UNCW-Enterprise partnership will completely take effect at the beginning of 2014.
As some of you are making travel plans now for next semester, please contact the Travel Office for more information or with any questions - http://www.uncw.edu/travel/.
