If the employee is paid out of the General Fund (01010) the rental cost is absorbed by the General fund and PW Fleet Management Cost Centers.

If the employee is not paid out of the General Fund the rental cost is charged to the respective fund and cost center the employee is paid out of.

For non-general fun, the daily rate for a car is $24.00, half day rate is $12.00. For a van the charge is $15.00 for half day and $30.00 for full day rental. Mileage charge if driven 50 miles or more is $0.485 per mile for all miles driven.

(rates current as of September 2019)

Currently we have some 25 vehicles available to rent at any time. We cannot guarantee drive train (gas or electric), but can confirm requested size (car vs. minivan)

  • 2 Dodge Caravans
  • 15 Toyota Hybrid Prius
  • 8 Nissan Electric Plug-in Leafs

If a reserved car will not be picked up the customer is required to inform the motor center to cancel the reservation one hour before pickup time and date.

If vehicle is not picked up within an hour of reservation time the reservation will be considered a no-show and the vehicle will be made available for rent to others.

Vehicle keys must be returned to the designated key box at or before end of reservation time and vehicle drop off.

Any trash or belongings must be removed from vehicle at time of drop off.

Smoking, eating or drinking while operating a vehicle on City business is prohibited

Any accident involving the vehicle has to be reported by following the instructions contained in a red envelope and found in the vehicle.

At return the vehicle must be parked in the designated Motor Center parking area.

If the vehicle is to be taken out of state, the renter must contact Risk Management, 720-913-3330 at least three business days prior to leaving so that the vehicle can be insured for out-of-state travel. Risk Management will notify the renter and the Fleet Director by email when the insurance is in place and an insurance card and incident instructions will be provided.

Risk Management must be notified of any incidents, however minor, involving vehicles insured for out-of-state use.

Parking reminder for 'OCB' tag holders and city fleet drivers:

On street parking around City facilities is for citizens needing to access the buildings. Therefore, it is important that Denver city fleet vehicles and those with ‘official city business’ (OCB) parking tags use approved spaces outside the city building areas (Webb, City & County Building, Minoru Yasui Building, Elections/Environmental Health, Justice Center). 

Additionally, outside of these restriction areas, city fleet vehicles are permitted to park only for the posted time permitted on the sign or meter.  

Those violating the parking restrictions can be cited for parking illegally.  Any citations issued are the responsibility of the driver. 

Please see maps for prohibited parking areas for city fleet vehicles and OCB tag users:
