Transportation Services

With a fleet of over 70 vans, buses, trucks and heavy equipment, Andrews University Transportation Services coordinate vehicle reservations for educational trips and campus maintenance.  Transport from local airports, train and bus stations can be arranged by faculty, students and invited guests.  Online forms are available to streamline reservations for educational trips. 

We can best serve when transportation needs are discussed in detail when first considered.  Educational tour travel needs to be discussed before the tour is marketed. Transport for class field trips needs to be worked out before the syllabus is completed, before the class begins. Changes can then be made collaboratively, as we coordinate the diverse array of requests. Contact us for help in the planning phase to save money and time for all.

Office Hours:

Monday – Thursday 9am to 5pm
Friday -  9am to 11:30am
The office  is currently closed for walk-in traffic but remains open for calls and emails.

All passengers and drivers will wear masks during the entire trip. Vehicles will be sanitized after each trip.
