Member News: Westward’s GO-4 Vehicles Enhance Purdue University Parking Efficiencies While Reducing Fuel Costs by 65%
Purdue University recently obtained two GO-4 parking specific vehicles from Westward Industries. The GO-4 vehicles will support the university’s efforts to expand their mobility, transportation, and parking management operations, elevating their on-street and lot presence while increasing mobile reads within their mobile LPR systems.
Purdue University sought a solution to their parking enforcement needs as they continue to experience significant growth on campus. The University’s goals for introducing the vehicles to their fleet were efficiency, safety, and reliability, while achieving a return on investment not typically experienced with standard fleet vehicles. The GO-4’s unique design makes them highly maneuverable making them essential for patrolling beyond the pylons and in the parking decks.
According to Andy Pruitt, Purdue’s Parking Facilities Coordinator, “We recently added two GO-4s and have already recognized exceptional gains for our department. Apart from the approachable aspect, these GO-4 vehicles are highly efﬁcient, saving our university 65% in fuel costs per month as compared to our other enforcement vehicles. The GO-4’s design aids in creating the desired environment; efficient, maneuverable, safe and different. I would highly recommend any of my colleagues to look into how these vehicles can fit into your operation”
He continued, “Purdue University strives to have its PEO’s be ambassadors for the University, exemplifying the Boiler Maker way. Westward’s GO-4 vehicles have been a valuable complement to the University’s parking operation and will continue to help its parking operation exceed its goals”.
