Reservation Cancellation & Refund Policy
In order to keep pricing as low as possible, we have a strict no-refund policy on all reservations.
You can, however, transfer your reservation to another student if you won't be riding the shuttle. This is your responsibility, and no assistance will be provided identifying a replacement or arranging financial reimbursement; you are responsible for arranging reimbursement from the student taking your seat.
Inclement Weather and Last Minute Changes
The go/no go decision for bus transportation provided by a bus charter company rests with the charter company and depends upon their company policy. The go/no go decision for transportation provided by a college-owned vehicle will be made jointly by the driver, Facilities Services and Student Life. As a rule of thumb, if there is a "travel not advised" section of the route on the state's DOT website, we will cancel or delay the shuttle.
If the driver encounters inclement weather while traveling to or from a destination, the decision as to whether or not to continue traveling will be determined by those mentioned above.
Passengers will be notified of any last minute changes in the shuttle schedule via the email address provided in their reservation. If passengers do not have access to email and the weather is questionable, they should call 563.387.2000 for the latest shuttle information.
