The Transportation Services garage maintains and services a fleet of automobiles, light trucks and vans owned by Western Michigan University. In addition to these vehicles, the garage maintains other equipment such as the ice cleaning machines and the University rubbish truck. We have a staff of three full-time mechanics.
Routine maintenance is scheduled by the garage staff, and you will be notified when the service has been scheduled. If for any reason you cannot keep the scheduled appointment, you are to call (269) 387-8511 to change the date.

Western Michigan University is committed to advancing responsible environmental stewardship. One way of doing this is by reducing pollution and conserving fuel. It is expected that all University vehicles will be turned off if they are idle for more than five minutes.
There are times when diesel-powered engines may be exempt from this policy, such as when temperatures or special situations require them to stay on longer. This will be an infrequent event and should be the exception rather than the rule.
