Securing Transportation for Community Engagement Activities at RWU

There are several ways to transport RWU faculty and students to an off-campus community engagement site. Selecting the best method depends on the number of participants in the trip and the destination.

Groups larger than 20 people:

If you are interested in booking transportation for a group larger than 20 individuals, there are two options:

  • For groups from 20-34 people, you should consider utilizing an RWU shuttle bus. There are use fees for shuttles based on the duration of usage. Funding may be provided through your department so please check with your Dean for more information. For more information on RWU shuttles, contact Kate Tobin in the Department of Public Safety at ctobin@rwu.edu or by calling at 401-254-3703.
