There have been enhancements made to the Driver for Hire Program. As of September/2019, All Drivers For Hire will now be college employees. These drivers are available for college business only (exclusively in college-owned vehicles – no exceptions) and subject to driver/vehicle availability. Most drivers will take you to all major airports, train stations, or other destinations within a 4-5 hour radius.
If you need a Driver For Hire, please follow the steps below:
- Confirm vehicle availability for the date in question with Fleet Coordinator at x-2302 or via email [email protected].
- Once the vehicle is confirmed, you will need to contact a Driver For Hire from the below-linked list.
- Once vehicle and driver are both confirmed – complete the Reservation Request to ensure your trip is scheduled.
Please note: all reservations are first come first served.
