All vehicle drivers must have a valid driving license and must complete the Vehicle Use Form on arrival.
All vehicle users of Gump Station vehicles must agree to:
- Wear a seatbelt at all times while driving or riding in a vehicle
- Obey all local traffic laws
- Be attentive to pedestrians and bicyclists
- Understand that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is strictly prohibited
Vehicle use is primarily for Gump Station residents, although Day Users also have access to the vehicles.
We use a sign out form: vehicle sign-out form
The cars must be left at the Gump Station overnight in the designated parking area. Gas is included in the flat fee, but only when filled up at the Mobil gas station nearby in Paopao (where Gump has an account). Users must pay for any gas purchased elsewhere and this cannot be reimbursed (unless by prior agreement with the Station management). Priority is given to user needs on Moorea, but with approval from the Station management, vehicles can sometimes be taken to Tahiti (if needed for a class or research project). Car ferry and other costs associated with taking cars to Tahiti are at the user's expense.
