The current rental rate is $135/hr with a 4 (hour) hour consecutive minimum to book the shuttle. The start time begins from when the bus departs the garage until it returns.

As soon as the shuttle is scheduled, it is the event organizer’s responsibility to ensure that attendees are notified of the appropriate locations for pickups and drop-offs.
