Car Share Program

West Campus fleet vehicles are available to the West Campus community through an online registration form, where you will be prompted to complete Yale’s Driver Safety Awareness training. Authorized users will be able to reserve a fleet vehicle through or using the Fleet Commander touchscreen and keyboard kiosk located in the lobby of the West Campus Conference Center, Building 800, near the Amazon lockers and ATM. There you will also have access to check out and check in a vehicle, retrieving and returning keys to complete your reservation.

The West Campus fleet consists of four vehicles - Chevrolet Equinox (5 passenger), Chevrolet Traverse (7), Ford Escape (5) and a RAV4 Hybrid (5) – which are located in the parking lot at the rear of the Conference Center, Building 800, next to the Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. Each vehicle glove box contains a gas card and a parking card for use at Lot 22 (Yale Science Building) and at College Place for parking at Yale School of Medicine.
