In cases where the official Advisor/Faculty member is unable to travel with the organization/class, a substitute full time faculty/staff member or otherwise approved Advisor must travel with the group and be present in the vehicle. For the purpose of determining the 60 mile radius, the student organization/class must submit, along with the vehicle reservation form, a printout from MapQuest/ Yahoo/ Google indicating the one way mileage to the exact destination.

Each department who has the vehicle checked out will be responsible for paying this fee. There will be a designated space to park when waiting for passengers to board the vehicle in order not to continue to circle the airport.

The Odyssey Mini-Vans are not included in this program. Elon University is one of many triad/triangle schools that have been affected by this ordinance. More information will be conveyed as the date approaches.
