Charter Bus Service Information

Transportation Services at the University of Delaware provides charter bus service to the University community. Each department or University student group that wishes to use the service must provide authorization by submitting a Request for Service Web Form. Before submitting a request, it is necessary to contact the Transportation Service office to ensure availability. This form must be received at least one week prior to the date of service.


Charter Bus Service rates for the academic year 2017-2018 are as follows:

University Shuttle Bus charter: $50.00 per hour, no additional fee for mileage.

The department/group requesting charter service is responsible to pay any tolls and/or parking fees during the trip. Buses are equipped with EZ-Pass transponders, and toll charges will be added to the final bill. All other fees are not factored into the total charges.

A 24 hour cancellation notice is required. A 3 hour minimum charge will be incurred for any reservation cancelled with less than 24 hour notice.

Charter requests are filled on a first come, first served basis.

Animals, with the exception of licensed Aid Dogs, are strictly prohibited from UD Shuttle Buses.

Possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or drugs in UD Shuttle Buses is prohibited. Evidence of such may result in the forfeiture of future Charter privileges.

Additionally, coach buses are available through a contract with Delaware Express.

The buses provided are 47- or 56-passenger buses with a bathroom. Rates vary and a $25 administration fee is assessed.
