Welcome to the Transport Services website


​​The Students'​' Union operates seven vehicles of various types, each with a different number of seats, luggage space, and accessories. The table below highlights the key features of each vehicle, which should be noted before section of a vehicle for a journey, to ensure its usefulness. We do not operate a vehicle with wheelchair user compatibility, but if you require one, we can hire one in - please contact Union Reception (ussu.information@surrey.ac.uk).

If you wish to drive any of these vehicles, you must be a Union driver. To become one, have a look at Becoming a driver​.
