University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown

Reserving A Vehicle

The Pitt-Johnstown Conference Center helps to serve campus by maintaining a fleet of two mini-vans that are available for university use by our students, faculty, and staff.  Additional vehicles, including 12-passenger vans can be rented through Enterprise by using the Panther Express Travel Management program. The procedures for renting vans are below.

Become an Approved University Driver

This is necessary for all business related rentals on campus or group travel off campus. The following items are required for submission. Please complete the editable forms, print, and sign in blue ink then return all items to the Conference Center.

  • A copy of your valid driver's license*

  • A copy of your Pitt ID card*

                       * Please adjust copier settings to grayscale for ID copies.

  • DMV Driver Release Form (only complete sections C & E) - Information obtained from the DMV, including actions and violations, will be reviewed and may be used to disqualify individuals.

  • EBI Consumer Report Authorization - Complete the form excluding the social security number.  The University is not requesting a credit report and will not receive any credit data.  This form is submitted to our vendor Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) to request that the PA DMV release your driver’s record to the University.

Reserve a Vehicle

Once you are an approved University driver you will be able to reserve vehicles for university business. Please allow five to seven business days before your departure.  Cancellation policies should also be verified.

  • Campus mini-van reservations are made though the UPJ Campus Services Portal. 

  • 12-passenger vans must be booked online through Concur or by contacting the Business Office.

    • Submit a request in Concur

      • Select Concur in the Pitt Portal or browse to https://www.concursolutions.com/home.asp.

      • Select “Requests” from the tabs at the top of the screen then “New Request”.

      • Be sure to choose Travel Agent Assisted Booking or Other to answer the question “How are you booking travel?”.

    • The request ID number should be sent to pitt@anthonytravel.com advising them you need a 12-passenger van.

    •  Anthony Travel will then book the reservation on your behalf.

      • You will need a university travel card or your personal credit card (reimbursable upon return) and a valid driver’s license. Please remember the individual driving the rental vehicle must be the same person booking the vehicle and must also match the name on the credit card.

      • Enterprise is the University preferred rental company. The University of Pittsburgh’s agreement with Enterprise includes insurance so there is no need for the renter to purchase additional insurance. Rental insurance is not reimbursable.

      • Rentals will be available for pick up at Enterprise, 737 Scalp Avenue, Johnstown, PA 15904.  Delivery to the Pitt-Johnstown campus may also be requested.  If you request vehicle delivery, please note a time.

Student Drivers should utilize campus mini-van rentals or contact the Business Office to request and review options for off-campus rentals.
