The Small Print
a) We have three 9-seaters (VW Shuttles). Additionally, the Shuttles have boot space, but "7-seater" almost always means "5 seats with 2 extra seats in the boot," so this has implications if you want to carry any kit or luggage.
b) All bookings are made on a 24 hour basis. Therefore, for example, 16.00 on 3rd to 17.00 on 4th is 2 days and will be charged as such.
c) Bookings should be made by 13:00 Friday, using the transport booking system, for the subsequent weekend, i.e. all bookings should be made at least one week in advance.
d) The Transport Office will always do its best to accommodate your vehicle requests, but if you submit a late booking you have to accept that you might not be able to get the kind of vehicle you want. This especially applies to towing vehicles and 9-seaters, which are rare
e) Drivers are recognised by the SU as volunteers. You therefore have certain rights and responsibilities as a volunteer. To find out more, go to the Volunteer Policies & Documents page of the Volunteering Website.
f) The Transport Office is generally open from 09.00 to 17.00, Mondays to Thursdays, including during University Vacation periods.
