UC San Diego Fleet Services provides a full range of automotive services for department-owned vehicles. We work to support UC’s Carbon Neutrality Initiative goals by maintaining a fleet that is over 60% “green” (Alternative Fuel Vehicles and hybrids).

Note: Drivers of privately owned vehicles experiencing difficulties on campus can request basic roadside service through the Motorist Assistance Program.

Fleet Services offers routine maintenance and other services for university-owned vehicles. The requesting department is responsible for service costs.
