Motor coach service for departments will no longer be available through Transportation

Until July 2013, UND provided motor coach service to campus departments through the Transportation Department. The motor coaches were owned by and rented from State Fleet Services at the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT). With increased costs of operation, maintenance and replacement, NDDOT had to continually raise the rental rate and the cost became prohibitive. NDDOT no longer maintains a fleet of motor coaches and UND will no longer provide motor coach service through the Transportation Department.

To meet our campus needs for motor coach service, the Purchasing Office has a list of service providers who have been pre-approved. Transportation will no longer be involved in booking trips. Departments will contact the provider directly to make arrangements for the motor coach rental. Detailed instructions for reserving and renting a motor coach are available at

If you have any questions regarding the departmental instructions for renting a motor coach, please contact Purchasing at 777.2681.
