Vehicle Parking Locations

Parking lots

USU Motor Pool is located at 900 E 1400 N, Logan, UT 84341.

Vehicles are parked to the east and southeast of Motor Pool (starred locations). You may park your own car there when renting a vehicle.

The Vehicles

There are two vehicles available for WATS faculty and student research. The Tacoma has a topper, tow hitch (includes ball mount), and four-wheel drive. The RAV4 has all-wheel drive. The charge assessed for use of each vehicle is determined solely by the number of miles you drive. If you do not necessarily need a four-wheel drive/higher clearance pickup and both vehicles are available, please request the RAV4.

Each vehicle has a blue duffel bag with emergency supplies, including jumper cables, flashlight, tire gauge, first aid kit, space blanket, small multi-tool, tow cable, fire extinguisher, and shovel. Please be sure these items stay with the vehicle.
