How to Create a Shuttle
How To Create a Shuttle
Step 1: Fill out the Shuttle Creation Form at least 3 weeks prior to the desired shuttle date. You need to provide your contact information, shuttle date, departure and return time, destination address, vehicle type, and description of the shuttle's purpose. You must consider the following requirements:
- All shuttles depart from in front of Luther College Dahl Centennial Union
- Shuttles will only travel to and from one destination address (e.g. the shuttle won't first stop at the Mall of America then Target Field). If passengers want to travel to other locations in the destination city, they must do so on their own and are responsible for being back at the drop-off/pick-up location a minimum of 15 minutes prior to the return departure time.
- Shuttle requests can't be overnight.
- Very little space will be available for any baggage
Step 2: We send your shuttle request to area transportation companies to determine availability and pricing. Ticket pricing is determined using estimated ridership of 60% of capacity. Once we have these details, the requester confirms they want to move forward with the request and becomes the first reservation.
Next, we make the reservation form live and market the shuttle to attract additional sign-ups.
As soon as the minimum number of reservations is received, previously signed up individuals will receive notification that the shuttle is going and reminded of the details. If the shuttle fails to get the minimum number of reservations one week prior to its departure date, it is cancelled and no one will be billed. Anyone with reservations to ride an unsuccessful shuttle will be notified immediately.
