7 Use of Evergreen Vehicles Restricted to activities related to official state or college business. This includes: Field trips Picking up supplies for field trips, official functions or other college activities Attending conferences Transporting speakers, performers or people involved in college activities. 6/3/20147

8 Do Not Use Vehicles to Commute back and forth from home. Run personal errands. Transport people, such as hitchhikers, family or friends, who are not part of the activity for which the vehicle was rented. For side trips, i.e. use the vehicle to visit friends while attending a conference. 6/3/20148 No friends

9 Do Not Use Vehicles cont.. For example, you can rent a cargo van to move art exhibits from one location to another, but you cant use it to move your personal belongings. Be careful about letting people who are not part of your program or activity ride in the vehicle. This means that people cannot bring their children or their friends with them on a field trip – even if there are empty seats. This does not mean that the only people that can ride in the vehicle are people affiliated with the college. Vans are commonly used to transport people who are attending a campus sponsored conference or activity from the airport or their hotel. 6/3/20149

10 Do Not Use Vehicles cont.. And finally, be wary of using the vehicles for activities that are not directly related to the purpose of your trips. Examples include using the vehicle to go to a party off site after an athletic event or visiting friends when at a conference. The litmus test is this: If you were to have an accident and we asked what were you doing there? – could you explain it in terms of your trip. 6/3/201410
