New Charter Bus Contracts
New charter bus services contracts have been awarded through a competitive bid process. These contracts are available in Buckeye Buy Marketplace Quotes for university-wide use and are primarily intended for trips originating within Ohio.
The order of preference for securing chartered transportation services is listed below.
- OSU TTM (Internal provider)
- Contracted Bus Companies – Miller, Cardinal, Baron’s
- Contracted Broker – STM
- Non-contracted providers
Ohio State users are expected to exhaust internal or contracted options before pursuing non-contracted supplier use. It is recommended to use the broker, STM, for out of market trips, rather than evaluating and setting up a local charter supplier for a single-use situation.
A more detailed breakdown, including equipment and contact information, can be found on the contract book page. (https://busfin.osu.edu/document/charter-bus-services-summary)
