Registered Student Organizations
Registered Student Organizations may now Request use of University Vehicles
Historically, the state insurance policy has prohibited RSOs from utilizing university vehicles. To better serve the needs of the RSOs, Risk Management, Facilities Management, and the Dean of Students Office have worked together to procure commercial insurance that would apply to the use of fleet vehicles by university RSOs.
Vehicles covered by this insurance include selected four-door sedans, mini-vans, and an ADA-accessible van. Vehicles available to RSOs are limited and available on a first-come, first-served reservation basis.
RSOs must complete the RSO Tranportation request and submit to Fleet Services a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the anticipated travel. To obtain this form please see the Documets section. https://ilstu.agilefleet.com/doclibrary.asp
Please refer to the Procedures for requesting a vehicle for RSO's: https://ilstu.agilefleet.com/doclibrary.asp
RSOs must request fleet vehicles and submit driver information at least two weeks in advance of the anticipated travel.
Reservations will be accepted on a rolling 12-month period.
Vehicles should be requested by the RSO advisor through the Agile Fleet Commander Reservation system (
All RSO drivers must:
(a) be a member or advisor of the RSO that is requesting the vehicle. The RSO must currently be registered and active on the Illinois State University campus.
(b) be a currently enrolled ISU student or currently employed faculty or staff member at Illinois State University
(c) be at least 20 years old
(d) have a valid Illinois drivers license

The Fleet Operations Unit of Facilities Management maintains a fleet of vehicles which are available to faculty/staff and registered student organizations which have funding with the Comptroller's Office. Fleet vehicles are to be used for official University business only. The fleet consists of sedans, mini-vans, 12-passenger vans, one pick-up truck, 2- 15 passenger mini buses, and one large van equipped with a hydraulic lift for physically challenged passengers. Only ISU funded accounts can be charged for the use of the vehicles. Charges vary by the type of vehicle used.
The Facilities Management Department also schedules the use of buses. School buses and charter buses are available. Buses are charged out at contract rates and can be submitted through the agile fleet request system for both quotes and bookings.
Vehicles Excluding Buses
The Facilities Management Department attempts to accommodate travel on a first come first served basis. Reservations may be made on-line with the computerized fleet reservation system. Occasionally it is necessary to "bump" the reservation to a different type of vehicle due to a priority need.
The driver of the vehicle must possess and show a valid driver's license to procure a vehicle. Only persons who have shown their driver's license at Facilities Management for that particular trip are authorized to drive. Vehicles cannot be picked up early and taken to the user's home, or kept at the user's home after a trip. The driver of the vehicle is responsible for all fines incurred while the vehicle is checked out.
The Facilities Management Department has a contract for bus services. School buses and charter coaches are available. Generally there is no cancellation charge if the reservation is cancelled through Facilities Management more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of the trip.
