Please note to drive a van, you must have upgraded your status to MPV+Van with the Transport Office by undergoing further familiarisatin and an observed drive
Drivers should return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel. Sainsbury's filling station is open 24 hours (don't forget your Nectar card!) and other filling stations are available.
Concessionary evening rate for summer vacation & off-peak days is available as follows:
Fleet VW Shuttles (9 seats): 20p per mile for first 200 miles (£40), after which free. Minimum 100 miles per day
Hired-in MPVs (9 & 7 seats): no concession
ONLY on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays
ONLY from 18.00
ONLY using fleet vehicles and ONLY if it does not mean hiring anything in. If using your vehicle means that we have to hire something in, then you would be able either to cancel or to pay the full amount. However, vehicles are rarely used on weekday evenings (which is why we're doing it!)
When booking for evening user rate, please put "Evening rate" in the "comments" box.
MiDAS: The fee for a MiDAS course is £30, which is billed directly to your Club/Society/Area
The cost transferred from your account helps finance the leasing of the fleet of vehicles, taking account of the times both when the fleet is used heavily and when it is idle for long periods, and the relatively high cost of 9 seaters.
Please note that The SU vehicles are not available for use by groups other than those associated with The SU
Feel free to call into the Transport Office to discuss your budgeting.
