Beginning July 1, 2021, the University partnered with DATTCO as its exclusive motorcoach transportation provider.
As we move through the Fall semester, we encourage any groups on campus looking to book motor coach travel to do so as far in advance as possible, preferably as many as 45-60 days in advance. Any bookings done inside of 30 days to travel can present significant operational challenges.
To book motor coach bus transportation with DATTCO, please visit https://uconnquotes.dattco.com/ to obtain a quote. Once the quote is received, process a requisition using the Goods and Services form in HuskyBuy and attach the quote along with the business purpose for the trip. Please use Commodity Code 525 (Transportation), Object Code 6910 (Transportation of Persons) and include the date(s), pick up and drop off locations in the Description of the requisition. Pricing has been negotiated to allow for discounts for groups that are able to travel on non-peak days of the week and year.
Any questions for non-athletics travel with DATTCO can be directed to Nancy Dooley at DATTCO, Nancy.Dooley@dattco.com.
Please note that this partnership is exclusive for motor coach buses, but can also be used to access school buses if needed.
DATTCO has enjoyed a successful business relationship with UConn over many years, serving the University in various capacities. These services include transportation for the Athletics department and some of their highest-profile teams, student group and activity transportation, and service trips such as Habitat for Humanity or Alternative Spring Break.
DATTCO maintains the highest quality fleet in the Northeast with over 70 over-the-road motorcoaches and an average fleet age of less than four years old, with no vehicles greater than eight years old. Their 52-passenger and 36-passenger motorcoaches are designed to optimize comfort and legroom and include amenities like WiFi, Power Outlets, DVD Player, HDMI Connectivity, and more!
DATTCO also provides a diverse fleet of other vehicle types to assist with UConn’s many unique needs over an academic year. For example, DATTCO can provide Activity Buses for short trips to community service projects or for fan buses, school buses for local transportation, and a fleet of luxury vehicles for entertainment or events that the University is hosting. In all, their fleet can serve ANY need that should arise for group passenger transportation over the term of this partnership, ranging from 4-passenger SUVs to 81-passenger double-decker coaches and everything in between!
