Transit and Parking Charter Operations

The Transit and Parking Department can provide charter bus service for most university activities. Buses, with seating for 32 passengers, are available for trips within a 50 mile radius of the campus. Charter bus trips will be driven by qualified bus operators with the appropriate commercial drivers license (CDL).

To request charter bus service, please contact Transit and Parking at (479) 575-7913 to make the arrangements or you may submit the request online at the Transit and Parking web site: http://parking.uark.edu/478.php. Charter service requests need to be submitted at least five working days before the bus service is required.

Charter rates are $85 per hour with a two-hour minimum per charter trip. Charges will accrue from the time the bus leaves the bus lot until the time it returns to the bus lot. Charges for waiting time during the trip will accrue at the same hourly rate. Cancellations of a charter must be received at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled trip, to avoid the minimum service charge.

When you schedule university charter bus service, you will receive prompt, courteous and safe service from well-trained, licensed drivers and clean well maintained buses. Please call the Charter Operations Manager at the above number if you have any questions about bus availability or scope of charter service.
