The School of Forestry has a fleet of vehicles that can be reserved for official Yale business for a fraction of what it costs to rent a vehicle at any of the outside car rental companies. YSE has two 14 person capacity shuttle buses (1 driver + 13 passengers ), one 10 capacity Van (1 driver + 9 passengers) and one 5 capacity SUV (1 driver + 4 passengers). Reservations are first come first served; however preference is granted to YSE faculty, staff, and students.

Drivers must have an acceptable motor vehicle record over the past two years, meaning: a) a maximum of one infraction, b) no infractions for anything more serious than a speeding ticket or a failure to obey traffic controls, c) no at-fault accidents.
