Reliable vehicles that get the job done

Public entities like hospitals, city utilities, and police and fire departments depend upon transportation that can withstand the rigor of the job.

A municipal lease can help you get the vehicles your organization needs.


Experience the benefits

  • Stretch your annual budget across multiple vehicles
  • Low, tax-exempt rates and multiple payment options
  • No processing fees or excess wear-and-use charges
  • Buy your vehicle for $1 at lease end


  • Annual, semiannual or quarterly payment options
  • Service contracts can be included
  • Lease payments are not considered debt, but are typically subject to annual budgetary appropriation and listed as a line item in the operating budget
  • Financing available for electric-vehicle charging stations

Put a Municipal Lease to Work for You

With a municipal lease, your dollars can get to work faster. For example, with a $45,000 annual budget, you could lease four vehicles for the price of purchasing only one.
