Parking for travelers' personal cars at UW Madison Fleet is restricted to stalls by reservation only

  • Groups with multiple vehicles to the same destination and/or organized by one central entity/person/club/organization will be permitted one stall per trip for the entire group, not one stall for each fleet vehicle rented.

  • Each stall will require a reservation. There will not be a fee, however there will be a reservation number especially for the parking stall. A traveler with a fleet car reservation and a parking stall reservation will have two reservation numbers. The wait list will be available for parking stall reservations. Stalls on the wait list are not guaranteed. Vehicles parked with no permit or an expired permit may be ticketed and towed. Reservations for parking are obtained the same way that reservations for vehicles are made.

UW Madison Fleet on Charter Street will dispatch vehicles 24 hours per day using two methods. One is 6:00 AM to 3:30 PM on weekdays (not Holidays), visit the fleet staff at 27 North Charter Street Room 110.

If a person other than you will pick up the vehicle, they must be listed in the Risk Management Approved Driver list and they must be prepared to show their valid Driver's License. When picking up after hours, you need to fill out the log book indicating who picked up the car. The person who is listed as the reservation name is responsible to make sure that whoever picks up the car and/or drives the car is an approved driver.
