Campus Transportation

Charter Bus Rental

Charter Bus Service is available for travel 7 days a week, 24 hours per day. Larger groups should consider the safety and convenience of Transportation Bus Service to handle their travel needs. Trips of a few hours or several days can be accommodated for faculty, staff, and approved student organizations traveling to further the mission of the University. Estimates, based on your planned trip, will be provided upon request. Charges are based on actual miles and usage.

Van vs. Bus

When the number of passengers traveling makes it necessary to consider a second or third vehicle, seriously consider using a bus. Caravans can be stressful and dangerous. The convenience and peace of mind of having a professional driver can make an otherwise stressful trip, a great success.
