Enhance Campus Safety with GEM Vehicles

Funding School Safety with Grants

School is back in session. And student safety is top of mind for institutions across the country – from equipping educators with the right technology and tools to provide a safe and effective learning environment to providing services that help students feel comfortable on campuses – including providing safe and reliable transportation.


With a top speed of 25 mph and a small footprint, all-electric Polaris GEM Low-Speed Vehicles (LSV) are a safe and smart vehicle to operate in high-foot traffic areas such as college campuses. Because GEMs are street legal, they also help decrease the need to drive utility vehicles on sidewalks, further enhancing pedestrian safety. Additionally, GEM vehicles are equipped with federally-regulated and approved safety features, such as three-point safety belts, LED brake lights and turn signals, and meet SAE crash testing, to provide a safe and comfortable ride for staff and students.


Polaris not only provides customers with dependable vehicles but also helps them through the acquisition process, to include grant funding. To help navigate the grant process, Polaris offers a nationwide grant assistance program to help ensure customers get the funding they need. The comprehensive program includes free and unlimited assistance from grant experts throughout the process from research to application to narrative review and ultimately final submission of the grant application.
