For students, getting around can seem daunting. However, Wilson Commons Student Activities (WCSA) offers plenty of options and resources for transportation.
In addition to the options listed above, students can also use the campus shuttle service, rent a Zipcar, or rent a car through Enterprise using the University’s promotion code: XZ29404. See the Department of Transportation and Parking Management website for information about other ways to get around campus and Rochester.
WCSA has three eight-passenger vans available to SA-recognized student groups. Groups are allowed to use a maximum of two vans at a time. Student organizations must read the SA Van Policy before reserving a van.
To reserve a van, fill out the SA Van Request Form.
Bus charter services are available for any University-related event by a University department, organization, or event organizer. Buses can be booked for local or long-distance travel. Continuously looping busses are also available for trips to local destinations.
All non-coach transportation requests must be submitted with a minimum of one week’s notice. All requests made with less than one week’s notice will incur a $50 late booking fee.
All requests for coach buses MUST be submitted more than two months in advance of the reservation date.
The following additional fees may apply to your trip:
- $50 cancellation fee
- $100 on-site cancellation fee for Monroe Transportation buses

- $100 cleanup fee, should a charter company find it necessary to clean the bus
