Motor pool

Due to COVID-19, we only have limited travel off campus. Generally, transportation is available for CACTUS projects and organizations to travel to service sites. We recommend using Motor Pool. There are 13 vehicles you can drive for your organizations’ activities. Register here.

Before motor pool vehicles can be reserved by a student driver, students must first go through a three-step process to become an approved Motor Pool driver:

  • Student driver applicants must complete the online Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) request, available here in WaveSync. Please allow a minimum of one week for this report to be processed. Any questions about the MVR can be directed to the Tulane Office of Insurance and Risk Management (OIRM) at (504) 314-2736.

  • The student driver applicant must take an online defensive driving test offered by United Educators. Once OIRM has received the completed MVR consent form, the applicant will receive an email from OIRM with instructions on how to register for the online defensive driving test. When completed, email your completion certificate to

  • The student driver applicant is required to take motor pool classroom training conducted by Tulane Shuttles & Transportation. This training will be comprised of both classroom and vehicle training. To schedule a training class, click here. This training can be completed while the MVR and United Educators online test are in progress. To note, a vehicle cannot be reserved until all 3 steps outlined above are successfully completed.


Due to COVID-19, we have suspended travel off campus. Normally, transportation is available for CACTUS projects and organizations to travel to service sites.

If you are a CACTUS organization seeking to make a transportation request, please use Motor Pool at this time.
