UT employees who rent vehicles from Fleet Management on a short-term basis now can park their own personal vehicle in the Fleet Management parking lot during the rental.
With the new fiscal year starting next week, UT Fleet Management has cut costs and updated its procedures for departments needing to rent vehicles.
Starting July 1, UT Fleet Management will align its short-term vehicle rentals with state contract rates offered by Enterprise and National car rentals.
Fleet Management has been initiating new practices and products to increase effectiveness and benefit departments using their services.
Cris Taylor has been named UT’s new director of fleet management and begins work today. Taylor, a Knoxville native, previously was the fleet manager at the University of Georgia.
