Charter Bus Service

We can provide chartered transportation on-campus, around town, and out-of-town. Approval of charter buses is at the discretion of UT Parking and Transportation and is based upon the availability of vehicles and personnel.

Vehicles chartered through Parking and Transportation Services enable you to leave the driving to a professional driver!

All charter estimates will include the fees for preparation and cleanup time.
