Southwest Region Fleet Transportation (SWRFT) Twenty-nine Palms provides commercial vehicle transportation support, management of Garrison Mobile Equipment (GME) assignments, and maintenance support to resident and visiting commands aboard MCAGCC and within the region.
Administrative guidelines for Garrison Mobile Equipment (GME) / Non-Tactical Vehicles (NTV) are provided in MCO P11240.106B which provides guidance of procurement, operation and maintenance of GME/NTV.
GME/NTV consists of commercially available owned, leased, or otherwise controlled passenger vehicles, cargo vehicles, material handling equipment, engineer equipment, and railway rolling stock. GME/NTV fleet managers operate their GME fleets in support of transportation and maintenance requirements at Marine Corps activities. They will not use their GME fleet for tactical purposes, nor will they deploy GME/NTV assets.
Class B assignments (temporary assignments to a unit/activity) are provided to resident units with a justified function which require the use of the same equipment on a daily basis.
Class C assignments (U-Drive) provides a dispatch pool in which vehicles can be scheduled via TCPT (see operations instructions below).
All GME/NTV is for official purposes only. Vehicle operators and passengers will properly use and wear seatbelts when operating or riding in any GME/NTV so equipped. Smoking and cellular phone use are prohibited in GME/NTV.
Prior to operation of a Marine Corps-owned or leased vehicle, operators will ensure that SF 91 (Operators’ Report of Motor Vehicle Accident) is available and carried in the vehicle.
Each unit, with Class B assignments, must maintain an assigned Responsible Officer (RO). This RO will coordinate with the Automotive Transportation Specialist any assignment, fuel key or reporting (accidents, justifications, mileage, budgeting, DriveCam coaching, etc.) requirements.
Operations provides transportation support services of passengers and cargo. All GME transportation support requests must be submitted via Transportation Capacity Planning Tool (TCPT).
