The Federal Transit Administration has issued new charter regulations that will drastically change the way public transportation providers, such as Citibus, can provide charter service. The rules are set up to protect private charter companies from unfair competition from public transportation systems that receive Federal funds. To put it in very simple terms, private charter companies have first choice on all charter requests.
The Federal Transit Administrationn website is where private charter operators can register for all geographic regions in which they are interested in providing service.
Due to the new regulations, when Citibus receives a request for a charter we cannot simply agree to provide the service. Citibus will get the details of the service that is being requested and will e-mail the information to all private charter companies listed in our geographic area. If any of the private charter companies indicate to us that they are interested in providing the service Citibus will not be able to provide the service for any reason. The private charter companies that have expressed interest in the service will contact you to work out the details of your service. In order for this process to take place Citibus must have at least 4 days notice on charter requests. In the past Citibus has been able to provide charter service with 24 hours notice, but unfortunately that will no longer be possible.
To make a Charter Service Request or for more information regarding charter services, please call 806-712-2000, Select 1 for English OR 2 for Spanish, then ext. 222
