Monthly Fuel Surcharge 
 Starting Thursday, September 1, 2022, TAS will add a 4-cents-per-mile fuel surcharge to Car Pool rentals because of the increased cost of unleaded gasoline. Each month, TAS will evaluate market conditions and adjust the surcharge as necessary, including decreasing the initial amount should prices drop. This adjustment is necessary to help TAS maintain the regular fuel, maintenance, and service operations for Car Pool vehicles. 

  • Charges consist of either the mileage rate or the duration minimum, whichever is greater
  • Vehicles returned late will accrue a $25 per day late-return fee in addition to normal use charges.
  • Rates may change subject to monthly review of gasoline pricing.
