The Transportation Center has a modern repair facility capable of engine and transmission rebuilds and all other repairs associated with automotive, heavy equipment and small engines.

Since the Transportation Center has been designated the responsibility of state reporting on all TAMU vehicles, maintenance purchased for TAMU vehicles must be purchased from the Transportation Center facility located on Agronomy Road. If the Transportation Center is not able to perform the work in a timely manner, then the Transportation Center will be responsible for subletting the work. For more information see TAMU Rule 21.01.08.M1 - University Owned Motor Vehicles.

Preventative Maintenance

The State Fleet Management Plan requires that all state vehicles be on a Preventive Maintenance Program. The Transportation Center is responsible for maintaining the program and scheduling for all TAMU vehicles for routine Preventive Maintenance (PM) appointments. PM appointments are scheduled at least twice a year. Vehicles routinely accruing high mileage between appointments may be scheduled more often.

The scheduling supervisor will work with vehicle custodians to schedule TAMU vehicles for PMs throughout the year. Every effort will be made to provide a convenient date and flexible drop-off time. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If it becomes necessary to re-schedule an appointment, departments should call (979) 845-7121. Cancellations should be made 48-hours in advance of the scheduled appointment. Mechanic workdays are planned according to the daily appointment schedules. Therefore, a charge may be assessed for missed appointments.

Under no circumstances should departments ignore PM checkups. Ignoring PM check-ups is a safety issue that could result in a serious accident or loss of property.

Departments are responsible for adhering to all vehicle state inspections. Departments will be notified when state inspections are due. Inspections are performed at the Transportation Center. Customers are welcome to bring vehicles in at any time during the inspection month. Inspections may be performed while you wait.

While the vehicle is at the Transportation Center for maintenance, departments may rent a vehicle. This can be done when you bring the vehicle in for repairs. Departments are responsible for the rental and fuel costs. Departments are also required to pay the monthly lease cost while vehicles are in the shop for repair and/or maintenance.
