The transits comprise the majority of the UTS bus fleet. Most are dedicated to UTS routes during the week, however UTS does have a few available for charter services. Each transit can accommodate around 35 passengers, and are ideal for local- to medium-range trips. All buses that are sent out on charters are air-conditioned and have wheelchair lift capabilities. Standees are permitted in most locations within Charlottesville city limits (around Grounds and Downtown) for speeds under 35 MPH, thus increasing capacity to 60 passengers.

  • University Transit Service is committed to providing safe, reliable transportation to our charter clients. In order to achieve our goal, we require that there be no smoking or alcoholic beverages permitted aboard our vehicles at any time.
  • Additional clean-up time, if necessary, will be charged an Additional Clean Up Fee (view rates) .
  • If a written estimate of costs is required, please make a note of it with your reservation request.
  • When performing charters to restaurants, it is customary for the restaurant to compliment the driver with a meal. Usually the driver eats on the bus or in a separate section of the restaurant. Please keep this in mind when you make arrangements with restaurants so that they will be prepared to feed an extra person.
  • Drivers have the authority to remove passengers from their bus at any time. Displays of inappropriate or threatening behavior that cause an inconvenience to the controller or other clients are just cause for removal.
