Rec Vans

UCSC Recreation owns ten 12-passenger vans. These vans provide transportation to the thousands of students who join Recreation activities each year.

When the vans are not in use by Recreation, Recreation will allow other OPERS departments, and occasionally non-OPERS departments to rent them.

UCSC Fleet Services is the primary campus rental service. However, on those occasions when Fleet Services vehicles are fully booked, Recreation vans may be available to meet your UCSC department's needs.

Non-OPERS campus groups have two driver options: pay trained Recreation Department Drivers to drive or supply your own driver who meets the driver requirements. In the later case, the $500 liability insurance deductable per van becomes the responsibility of the group requesting the van rental.

The Vans Handbook is a helpful resource to answer questions ranging from driver requirements to rates.

Reservations may be made online:
