Thanksgiving travel help

UDrive Vehicle Check-Up and other transportation information

With the busy holiday season rapidly approaching, many people do not have the time to have their vehicles inspected frequently. The University of Delaware Transportation Services has partnered with Parking Services to present UDrive Vehicle Check-Up, a complimentary car inspection event open to all UD faculty, staff, and students. Vehicle Maintenance staff will perform a quick safety inspection of vehicles to help you get to your Thanksgiving destination safely.

This event will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from noon to 4 p.m. Faculty, staff and students are invited to the Vehicle Maintenance garage at 403 Wyoming Rd. where mechanics will top off fluids, check belts and wiper blades, pressurize tires, and do a quick visual inspection of vehicles. Please be prepared to present your UD ONEcard. We look forward to seeing you at #UDriveVehicleCheck-Up!
