Department of Transportation
The Department of Transportation's primary responsibility is to maintain the safe operations of all vehicles owned by the College. These duties include major repairs and service to vehicles, inspection of campus vehicles, and the facilitation of governing those persons who are assigned vehicles in order to ensure the maintenance of the College's property.
Paine College offers transportation services to faculty, staff, and departments for College business. The transportation department offers services with two 15 passenger vans and two sedan vehicles.
The Director of Transportation is the resource of the Institution to assist faculty and staff in the rental or assignment of vehicles for college duties. The transportation office does not provide driving services for the entire campus.
The Director of Transportation provides driving service for the Office of the President only.
All vehicles are available for on-campus departments, clubs, and organizations (at the request of the campus advisor). Reservations should be made as far in advance as possible to ensure a vehicle is available, but the office requires at least a 5 day notice.
A reservation will only be made if a reservation form is received by fax, email or in person. A call can be made to see if a vehicle is available, but no reservations (tentative or confirmed) will be made by telephone. If the vehicle is not already booked, the reservation will be made and the requestor will receive confirmation by e-mail notification. The department can plan on using the vehicle only after the e-mail confirmation is received.
If an office or staff member needs to utilize a campus vehicle it is the expectation of the staff, faculty or college employee to drive him/herself and others on college business. If there is a need for a driver, the individual making the request must understand there would be an additional cost for the college to contract the service.
The Department of Transportation offers limited pickup and drop off service during operation hours: 1) during the end of the fall semester; 2) beginning of the winter (January) semester; and 3) end of the spring semester for students traveling outside of Augusta. Pickup and drop off services are limited to the local airport in Augusta and to the local bus station in downtown Augusta.
