About Us/FAQ

Who Are We?

Catch-A-Ride started as a student run bus service, not affiliated with any university, and has been operating since September 2008. We began with one route connecting the University of Delaware with Baltimore, BWI Airport, and Washington DC. Over the years we have served several other schools and are constantly evolving to the needs of our customer. That evolution has finally led us to where we are today, providing holiday transportation for students returning to Long Island and North Jersey, and now to the Atlanta and Macon area as well at our southern schools. We are less expensive than competing services such as Amtrak. Since we pick up right on campus we are also more convenient. Best of all, our services are completely student oriented. So why wait? Buy your ticket and catch a ride!
