Motor Vehicle

A division of the General Services Agency, the Motor Vehicle Division is responsible for the administration of the County's fleet of light and heavy automotive equipment owned and operated by GSA.

The division owns and operates approximately 400 sedans, 500 light duty trucks and vans, and 50 heavy automotive equipment. Our responsibility is to ensure that the County's fleet is save to operate, properly maintained, and economically feasible. We also provide services to other agencies and departments to ensure their equipment is safe and maintained. The Oakland office manages the division's administrative and long-term vehicle assignment functions. Short-term motor pool vehicles are available at four locations to provide transportation for County employees on official business.

Full ranges of automotive repair and maintenance services are provided to equipment owned by both GSA and by agencies and departments in the Oakland, Hayward, and Santa Rita garages.

The division manages the County's refueling services. This service, as with repair and maintenance, provides motor fuel to the County and other municipalities utilizing five self-serve fully automated refueling stations.

To promote clean air, the division has Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFV) available for our customers. We promote AFV's to our clients and encourage them to help reduce automotive related air pollutions. Many AFV's are in the automotive marketplace for individuals to lease or purchase.

To assist with the disposal of automotive equipment, the division works with an auction company to maximize the County's return on surplus equipment. This service, too, is available to all agencies and departments. Other programs are available to better serve our customers.
