Risk Management has identified local bus providers that are interested in servicing and conducting business with Ithaca College, which has resulted in a binding contract between the College and the providers below. The purpose of a contractual arrangement is to protect the College, employees, and students from potential risk and liability exposures (i.e. bus accident). Therefore, effective immediately, if a campus department needs to charter a bus, a provider from the following list must be selected:
