Q: When should I book my travel?

Q: How much will a van rental / driver rental cost?

A: Costs vary depending on a variety of factors, but typically compare favorably against rates from Enterprise and other outside vendors. Driver fees will vary depending on availability of drivers and the time of your trip. Submit a request for an exact quote!

Q: Who can submit requests for van rentals?

A: Requests can be submitted by any community member, but must be approved by a Fordham budget administrator. Student clubs wishing to rent vehicles should seek assistance through OSI. All payment must be done through internal Fordham budget transfer.

Q: What kind of vehicles are available?

A: Ram Van has 15-passenger vans, 7-passenger minivans, an accessible minivan, and 6-8 seat golf carts. The availability and makeup of the fleet is subject to change as vehicles are added or retired.

Free Passes for Class-Related Travel


Going somewhere? We can help.

Professors who require their students to travel to destinations other than class (photography lab, museum, botanical garden research, rehearsals, etc.) must submit our free pass request form completely and accurately. The earlier your request is made, the better we can help to make the trip a success! Read on for qualifications and important info.


 Qualifications

  • In order to be guaranteed, all trip and pass requests must be submitted two weeks in advance.
  • If an entire class is traveling simultaneously, professors will be asked to charter a van for the trip. See the point below.
  • Requests for free passes may be rejected depending on class size and time of travel. This is done out of fairness to our other riders.
  • A complete roster of pass recipients must be attached to the request. This roster must include names, dates of travel, and Fordham email addresses.
  • All trips must be conducted with the approval of the relevant department head.

Access the pass request form here. Any additional questions should be sent to ramvancharters@fordham.edu.
