Purdue University is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to replace the school’s aging fleet with 78 new Subaru vehicles. This initiative is freeing up approximately $1 million in upfront costs for the university, while also offering unlimited mileage to various campus departments.


“This lease agreement allows us to free up capital for other university needs, and provides us with options while extending our partnership with a local manufacturer [Subaru of Indiana] as well as with Enterprise, a well-known and respected name in the transportation industry—both here in Indiana and throughout North America,” said Rob Wynkoop, Purdue’s Director of Service Enterprises.


In addition to handling all licensing and registration, Enterprise Fleet Management will conduct ongoing use and performance monitoring—ensuring all vehicles are properly and regularly maintained, and reducing Purdue University’s total cost of ownership for its leased vehicles.
