The Hourcars at UST are back on the road again following service repairs. Repairs to the two 2010 Prius Hourcars were dictated by a Toyota recall following reports of brake malfunctions.
“Safety is our first priority, so we took the cars out of service when it became clear that there was a problem and before Toyota issued its recall,” says Hourcar Program Manager Christopher Bineham. “We’re pleased that Toyota was able to identify a fix so quickly, allowing us to get the cars back on the road safely within a week.”
The Hourcars at UST are located near the science and engineering buildings on the south campus, and in Lot A at Selby and Finn on the north campus in St. Paul.
Through Feb. 28, UST students, faculty and staff can join Hourcar without paying the standard $50 application fee. For details on the program and membership information, see a recent story in Bulletin Today or visit the Hourcar Web site.
