EXPRESS RIDES

Instructions for booking

The Express Ride Service is provided as an alternative to public transportation for students that need a ride to a medical appointment, an internship, or volunteering.  There is limited availability, so please reserve early.  All rides for education placements must use the Education Shuttle System.

These special rides can be provided to or from many locations within the local Holland and Zeeland area.  Locations may be limited at the discretion of the Off-Campus Transportation Office due to distance or availability of drivers.  For verification of an accepted location, please contact our office.

Riders will be given a window of time in their confirmation.  Riders should be ready to depart at the beginning of this time window and watch for the driver.  The rider will be picked up as soon as possible. 

Cost: $3.00 per person each way billed directly to your student account.
(Student account number is required at the time your reservation is made.)
