Fleet Vehicle Leasing

Cornell University Fleet Services provides efficient and cost-effective vehicle rentals, lease management, and maintenance services to university departments. Vehicle leasing (rental) services include acquisition, inspection, and maintenance. The fixed fee cost of a full service lease, plus fuel charge, is billed monthly.

Getting Started

Vehicle reservations can be made online at Agile FleetCommander. The fleet contains a mix of fuel-efficient sedans, minivans, and 12-person vans available by the day, month, or on an annual basis. Rentals are fully insured.

  • The fleet rental price is based on per day, per month, or per year rate.

  • Daily: rentals of 15 days or less in duration plus per mile charge
  • Monthly: rentals of 6 months or less in duration plus per mile charge
  • Annual: rentals greater than 6 months in duration. (The full annual rate will be assessed for leases greater than 6 month, but less than 1 year in duration.)
