24-Hour Notice for ALL Reservations

Due to the high volume of reservation requests, we are now requiring 24-hour notice for ALL reservations. Same day requests are subject to availability and are not guaranteed.

Golf Cart Rentals

Transportation now has two golf carts to rent for University business.  Please call our office at
(765) 494-2114 or email us at for more details. 

Transportation has merged with Parking Services

Our location remains the same, but our hours have changed to:

  • Monday-Friday, 7:30AM-4:30PM
    • Please contact with questions regarding access to keys outside of these hours and/or see below regarding our after-hours kiosk.

KIOSK (for after hours key pick up): We have now launched our after-hours kiosk allowing you access to your rental cars any time you need them. With the implementation of the kiosk, this will allow all customers to come to retreive their keys outside of business hours. Due to this ALL reservations will be starting charges at the time the keys are picked up. Please contact us with questions regarding this implementation.

  • Kiosk QRC: Instructions for Kiosk Use
  • Precedural Change Details:
    • With the implementation of the Kiosk, customers are able to retrieve their keys outside of normal business hours. Due to this, charges will start at the time of actual key pick up
    • Please drop vehicle off with a full tank of gas
    • Please remove all trash & personal items out of vehicle - these vehicles will start having back-to-back reservations
    • With back to back reservations, it is very important that the vehicles are returned at the time specified on the reservation- not doing this could cause a fellow customer to not get a vehicle
    • Unless otherwise told/noted: Please use the Kiosk that is located on the front of the building to return a vehicle
    • Information needed for the kiosk:
      • Correct Username- please call or email with your current Purdue Career Account Username
      • Mileage will be required to check in the vehicle
      • The person that the reservation is under, will have to be the person that picks up/drops off from the Kiosk
