If the ride is not needed (sick, schedule change, etc) CANCEL the ride ASAP.
- Same day cancel: call 507-291-6168 and leave a detailed message if it goes to voicemail.
- Prior to 8 pm the night before your scheduled trip: email, with details, to firstname.lastname@example.org so the scheduler may take you off the schedule.
Catch the Van-GO! Outside Buntrock Commons.
- The driver will take St. Olaf students to: community service sites, off-campus student-work assignments, student teaching, classes at Carleton, and medical/dental/therapy appointments in town.
- Monday—Friday, 7am – 6pm
1) Have a recurring trip in Northfield? (weekly job, appointment, meeting, etc.)
- Make online reservations before 8pm, a minimum of a DAY PRIOR to when you need a ride.
- Van-GO! needs to have all rides requested in a day in advance in order to make schedules for the next day.
- Students will receive an email confirmation for each email requested trip received prior to 8pm of the night before.
- This updated site will include a daily existing timetable of scheduled trips to and from Buntrock, that you can request to be added to.
- Or, if there is nothing ‘around’ your time, indicate so and you can initiate a new trip.
- PLEASE SINCERELY ATTEMPT TO MERGE WITH OTHER STUDENTS, WHENEVER POSSIBLE, IN THE INTEREST OF CONSERVING RESOURCES THROUGH CONSOLIDATION.
- Three no-shows (not showing up without communicating cancellation ahead of time) for a recurring ride will result in the loss of the remaining rides scheduled in that series.
2) Just need to go somewhere once?
- Make online reservations before 8pm, a minimum of a DAY PRIOR to when you need a ride. Van-GO! needs to have all rides requested in a day in advance in order to make schedules for the next day.
- Students will receive an email confirmation for each email requested trip received prior to 9pm of the night before.
All last minute urgent needs (medical etc.) are understandable and will be treated with due respect.
