Motorist Assist Program

Washington University Parking Services and the Washington University Police Department have initiated a service for stranded motorists on the Danforth, North, South, and West campuses. MAP—Motorist Assist Program— provides free battery jump starts and vehicle unlocking services 24 hours a day.

Stranded motorists on campus can contact the WUPD at 935-5555, or by using an emergency telephone on campus. Parking Services or WUPD personnel will be dispatched to assist with a jump start or lockout. Vehicle operators will sign a Waiver of Liability form and produce identification to show they are authorized to have access to the vehicle.

In the event Parking Services or WUPD personnel cannot assist with the problem, the motorist will be provided information on other services available in the area.
