Request an Institute Vehicle

In continuing to look at ways to focus organizational attention on mission and vision, and to remain disciplined in the use of financial resources, a number of Institute sedans were sold at the beginning of summer, along with two mini-busses. There are now four mini-vans in the MBI Chicago fleet, with education being given priority in scheduling. When a vehicle is needed for MBI business, you may still contact Lauren Schmidt to see if a MBI fleet vehicle is available.

Employees and students can place transportation requests through FMX (Facilities Maintenance Express). FMX helps us better manage our Fleet and Inventory. This software provides users with an easy to use request interface. With FMX you will experience easier request submissions and better communication with our team.

Another option is to use your own vehicle, with Moody reimbursing the mileage; the 2021 IRS reimbursement rate is $0.56 (56 cents) per mile.  In some cases, it may be less expensive to rent a car from Enterprise through Procurement Services, so both options should be evaluated together. All Enterprise rentals should be requested by the driver or department in need of the vehicle. 

Employees can rent through Enterprise at a discounted rate through the Procurement Department

To request a vehicle, go to and fill out the transportation request form. 

**All Chicago fleet vehicles must be returned with a full tank of gas. The tank should be full after your trip. If not, your cost center will be charged a service fee.
