In our continuing commitment to be a "green campus", Facilities Management has reduced our fleet and as a result no longer has vehicles to loan.  We will continue to have a limited number of golf carts available on a first come, first serve basis.  Golf carts can only be used by UCO faculty/staff and may be reserved by submitting a service request.
