POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Private Vehicles


We will use private vehicles to transport people when a local or long distance public transportation carrier does not adequately serve either our departure or arrival town in terms of such things as capacity, schedule, location, or fares, or all schedules for all public transportation carriers are full.

Private vehicles will be available at the transportation staging point beginning at the staging time. Once your bicycle and/or baggage has been loaded you will be able to sit inside them and wait to depart, particularly if it is raining. This will also help the loading process organized and moving quickly which will contribute to a faster departure.

All private vehicles will depart the transportation staging point at the same time and caravan together. You will arrive at the same time as your bike and baggage and you won't have to wait to receive them back.

The final thing we will do before we depart is conduct a final head count by asking all passengers their name and checking it off against our master passenger list. We will either do this as each individual participant boards the vehicle or once everyone is aboard. That way we make sure that no one gets left behind and we don't have any stowaways.

Charter School Bus
We will charter a private school bus when our departure and arrival towns are only a couple hours apart and there are enough passengers to justify doing so.

Charter Coach Busses
We will charter a private coach bus when our departure and arrival towns are more than a couple hours apart and there are enough passengers to justify doing so.

Support Vehicles
We will use our existing support vehicles when there are not enough passengers to justify chartering a private school bus or coach bus.
