Group Transportation Charter Services

When planning a group trip, you'll need to consider the following factors as you evaluate transportation options: number of people traveling, distance (local or out of town), any disability accommodations, and your budget for transportation. We will advise on the availability of fleet. To request transportation for 12 passengers or fewer, please complete the transportation request form.  If you have additional questions you may contact UR Transportation Services, at 804-289-8703
