First Vehicle Services has been awarded the fleet management contract for Florida International University (FIU). The contract is for maintenance and servicing of FIU’s entire fleet of 450 vehicles. The relationship will include a distinctive twist. This summer, First Vehicle Services will offer full-service oil changes to the students and faculty of FIU, and believed to be one of the first of its kind in the country.

“I’m excited that we could bring this unique customer service solution to FIU,” said Dale Domish, senior VP at First Vehicle Services. “This is a convenience for a university that is a first for our team to offer.”

First Vehicle Services will provide certified mechanics for the oil change services, giving FIU students and faculty repairs that meet or exceed the manufacturer's requirements. The hours of operation and location details for the full-service oil changes are being finalized. FIU, located in Miami, has an enrollment of 55,000 students. It is the fourth-largest traditional university in the U.S. and is ranked as one of the top 20 universities in the country.

A division of First Transit, First Vehicle Services maintains more than 40,000 vehicles and equipment in the U.S. and Puerto Rico for government agencies, municipal organizations and private companies.
