Purchasing a Seat

Reservations should be made as soon as your plans become definite, as some shuttles have been filling up. You will receive a confirmation email once your reservation has been received and space availability has been checked.  The shuttle fee will be added to your student account.  A ticket is required to board the bus, this will be sent to you via SPO.  If you purchase a ticket for a return trip while at home, you will have to pay for your shuttle when boarding with check or cash. Exact fare is needed; drivers are unable to make change.
