Transportation Information

The JCCP has 3 vehicles to transport students to volunteer, service-learning and work-study placements.  The vehicles are in high-demand and are reserved on a request basis.  JCCP programs have first priority for vehicle use. 

To request a JCCP vehicle, please fill out our Google Form. For highest consideration, please place your request by WEDNESDAY AT 5PM for the following week. If your program's destinations are any of Middletown Transit XtraMile's stops, and if it is during their operating hours, please use their service.

Please note, vehicle cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance by emailing Ying-Fei Chen at If the cancellations are made on the same day of their rides, students should contact their drivers (both drop-off and pick-up) as soon as possible with their name, the time of the rides and which location they are going. Then email Ying-Fei Chen ( with all the information as well.

If an individual does not show up for their ride without advance notice twice, the JCCP will no longer provide rides for that individual for the remainder of the semester. 

Due to the construction near Allbritton Center, including the parking lot closures, all JCCP vehicles' departure location will be in Parking Lot S (behind 171 Church Street). All vehicles leave promptly and will not accommodate any late arrivals.

Use of Ride-sharing Services for transport to/from Civic Engagement Activities

The University recently granted the JCCP permission to use ride sharing services (Uber or Lyft) for student transport to and from off-campus civic engagement activities. All students participating in JCCP approved or activities approved by a Service-Learning/College of Education Studies course that requires transportation, should establish a personal account with Uber or Lyft. The following offers guidance for when students should access Uber or Lyft and outlines the process for being reimbursed for ride-sharing expenses.

Students SHOULD ONLY access Uber/Lyft when:

  1. Participating in civic engagement approved by the JCCP, or participating in activities approved by a Service-Learning or College of Education Studies course instructor.
  2. A transportation request form has been submitted to JCCP and a student is subsequently instructed to use Uber/Lyft as noted in the JCCP’s weekly transportation schedule. Please do not book the Uber/Lyft more than a day in advance, as we are not able to reimburse cancellation fees. 
  3. An assigned driver is a “no show”. Before requesting an Uber or Lyft ride, students must call their assigned driver (all driver information is noted on the JCCP weekly transportation schedule) and confirm that the driver is unable to complete transport. In cases where communication with a driver cannot be established and students have waited 10 minutes beyond the scheduled pick-up/drop-off time, students can request Uber or Lyft service. 

Please note, in cases where a driver is a “no-show”, students must notify the JCCP by emailing Ms. Chen at Similarly, when students decide to not go to the site, Ms. Chen must be notified immediately via email at

To ensure reimbursement for ride sharing expenses, students must:

Forward electronic receipt via email to Ms. Chen at and include a typed note specifying the “to” and “from” addresses of ride sharing service in the body of the email as well as the Service-Learning course or JCCP Program the trip was for.  A failure to do so may delay reimbursement.

Please note: all reimbursement to non-resident aliens are subject to 30% federal income tax withholding. There is an exception, that reduces the withholding to 14% for F-1 students, on payments relating to their study or research.

All student reimbursements will be processed on every Friday.
