Charter Request Forms/Applications
Basic fill in the blank sort of form with all the info we would need to fill out our coversheets and order forms. We would need it two weeks/eleven business days beforehand. It is in the folder as Charter Request Form.
Both Greek and non-Greek Responsibility Forms are in the folder. Greek groups are required to fill out both forms, non-Greeks just the one. These can either be filed with the Charter Request Form or printed and submitted with payment.
Good Times to Charter
Because STS contracts out Unitrans buses for our charters, it can be more difficult to charter a bus during normal Unitrans service (generally 7am-7pm on weekdays). This does not preclude chartering buses on weekday mornings or afternoons, but it can be more problematic than evenings or weekends. Also, please be aware that some weekends throughout the quarter tend to be very popular with campus groups and we may be fully booked many weeks in advance. In other words—your chances of getting a bus are better the sooner you contact us (although we do not schedule charters more than 6 months in advance).
Unfortunately, STS does not charter buses outside of a 45 mile radius of Davis. This includes Stockton and San Francisco. Campus groups who wish to charter a bus to anywhere further away may want to look into Fleet services. We could also include a map showing where we do and do not go. This map is posted on the wall in the STS office.
Hours of Operation: Thursday/Friday/Saturday: 10PM – 2AM.
Call in, and be prepared. Know where you are, where you’re going, and approximetly how many of you are going. The more accurate you are, the faster we can give you service. We do not accept requests more than 15 minutes in advance. Please have fare ready when you board the vehicle, and be prepared to show your Aggie Card to prove you are an undergraduate. You MUST be an undergraduate to ride.
The pickup times given to each passenger are estimates; STS will not be held responsible for any unexpected delays due to – but not limited to – traffic, high passenger loads, detours, or accidents. We will do everything in our power to pick you up as close to the pickup times as possible.
Our dispatchers do everything they can to answer as many calls as possible during the course of the night. During high-demand times, that becomes exceedingly difficult. From 10:00 – 10:30 and from 1:30 – 2:00, we see unusually high pickup requests. If you can work around those times, you will be more likely to get a ride
Fare is $3 per person, or one-ride tickets. One-ride tickets can be purchased in the Unitrans Business Office (South Hall 5; in the basement) individually or in larger quantities for discount. They are a lot easier to carry around than change. Feel free to come in to South Hall during regular business hours to purchase them.
