Car Pool

COVID-19 Operational Update (August 24, 2020): All U of I students, faculty, and staff are required to show their "Status Card" through the Safer Illinois app before entering buildings on campus. The same requirements are in place for renting a vehicle at the Car Pool: customers are required to show their status before they get their rental vehicle. Drivers are responsible for also checking the status of all other passengers.
