Without drivers the club couldn’t run. When driving an SU Bus you don’t have to pay anything for day trips and you get 50% off on weekend trips.

When you drive with your own car on a Rucksack Trip and take club members with you, you can get the money for fuel back. For that please speak to our Treasurer at the Social.

Requirements

12 seater minibus: 21+ years with at least 3 years driving experience

9 seater minibus: 19+ years with at least 2 years driving experience.

Information on driving the buses

This is an overview of what to expect when driving an SU minibus.

You will need to collect a folder with keys from the ISE reception the day before the trip.

Fuel Credit Cards are provided for each Sports Union Mini Bus. Pin numbers and cards are in the folders. These should be used at the end of each trip to pay for fuel. Vehicles must be refilled fully at any shell petrol station before returning to the car park opposite the Dental School which can be accessed through the entrance on South Tay Street. There is a key provided in the event that the car park gate is locked.

On Receipts for refuelling please write RUCKSACK clearly at the top of the receipt and put it in the folder.

If you have any questions then please speak to the Transport Sec in Person at the Social. For urgent queries please message the DURC Driver group on Telegram.
