Fleet Repairs – 24 Hour Call Center

In Madison, during business hours dial (608) 262-3555 to reach the UW Garage. Garage staff will assist you in determining where, how, and when repair work will occur.

After hours or out of town repairs are managed by a 24 hour call center company called Automotive Resources International (ARI). To reach them, have the vehicle serial number available and dial the UW Fleet number (608-262-1307/888-777-7181). You will be offered a touch tone menu system—pressing zero will direct your call to ARI.

Fleet Reservations

A motor pool vehicle is a short-term lease with a specific beginning and end date. Generally, these are rentals for a few days, but in some cases—for instance, summer research—the reservations can last weeks or months.
