Field trips and excursions
Charter bus service is a restricted purchase – only credentialed Senior Buyers in campus Supply Chain Management have the necessary skills to assess suppliers for proper compliance with state laws regarding insurance coverage, driver licensing and vehicle maintenance. Their top priority is ensuring the safety of Berkeley Law passengers by weeding out substandard companies and only using suppliers who meet stringent industry safety requirements.
Charter bus service is not eligible for payment via credit card or personal funds. If you use personal funds, you will not be reimbursed. Only suppliers approved by Supply Chain Management may be used to transport University faculty, staff, students and hosted guests. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Request charter bus service via BearBuy
Use the Vehicle Charter Form – you may leave the supplier information blank if you would like Regional Shared Services Business and Financial Services to identify an eligible service provider for you.
Please don’t wait until the last minute – if you can anticipate your charter bus needs for future events, let Regional Shared Services work with Supply Chain Management in advance to establish a University purchase order with an approved supplier that can satisfy your trip requirements.
