Bus Driver Shortage Impacting Charter Reservations

The bus driver shortage in our area is impacting local charter bus companies, which means charter reservations arranged through the University are becoming increasingly challenging to fulfill. In some cases, these reservations cannot be accommodated. To help, we recommend following these tips when requesting a charter:

  • Book early. Plan ahead and request your charter with as much lead time as possible. We will handle charter requests on a first-come, first-served basis until further notice.
  • Consider the day of the week. When selecting an event date, keep in mind that charter bus availability is typically better on weekends than weekdays.
  • Prepare a backup plan. This is an ever-changing situation, so be sure to plan ahead in the event your charter is canceled due to driver shortages.

We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
