Travel Policy

Many times, members of student organizations travel for off-campus activities. To ensure members understand and appreciate various risks associated with their travels, please review the Office of General Counsel website.

Charter Buses

Please note the following policy for charter buses:  

  • "During passenger pick-up and/or unloading, the charter bus service shall not dwell, stop, or stand in bicycle lanes in accordance with Ohio Revised Code ORC 4511.713 and ORC 4511.68."

While transit bus stops may be available at some locations, the University prefers and suggests that charter services consider loading/unloading at alternate locations such as parking lots.

Motor Vehicle Rentals

Miami University, along with the Inter-University Council of Ohio, has entered into a vehicle rental contract with Enterprise/National for business rentals. This contract allows students 18 and older to rent vehicles through Enterprise/National. The full policy and procedure can be found at Travel Management Services Vehicle Rental
