New roadside assistance available for university vehicles

University of Nebraska vehicles traveling outside the Lincoln area are now eligible for nationwide roadside assistance through a new partnership with LeasePlan USA.

The new partnership, organized by University of Nebraska Fleet Management, will provide vehicle maintenance and repair for university vehicles registered with LeasePlan USA.

For assistance, drivers can call 800-323-6644, press three after the main greeting, and then press one for maintenance and repair or three for Emergency Roadside Assistance.

A service advisor will request information to identify the vehicle, type of assistance necessary and then schedule the service. LeasePlan will pay all charges, apply available discounts and bill University Fleet Management for services performed.

For additional information or questions, contact Patrick Barrett, Director of University Fleet Management, at pbarrett1@unl.edu or 402-472-7766.
