Car Service

After soliciting competitive bids for our University-wide car service needs, we chose Vital Transportation Inc., effective November 1, 2009.

Vital has been in business since 1983. It is a full-service company providing 450 luxury sedans, plus vans and limousines. In addition to YU, Vital is servicing all campuses of Fordham University. It is located in Long Island City so until it builds its base in the Bronx, trips from that campus will need to be scheduled in advance, allowing at least 30 minutes for your car to arrive.

Vital will be providing a dedicated customer service representative and an online booking tool. Its rates are very competitive and tips are not included or accepted. For many zones, Vital is considerably less expensive (see attached rate sheet). If you are interested in changing to this new service, you must cancel you current purchase order and issue a new one to Vital. Upon receipt in Procurement, we will establish your account.

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey Brown via Email or Jay Paquette at You can check out the company by visiting

We look forward to doing business with Vital and hope that your car service experience will improve.
