Our charter service policy is designed to address the demand for private event transportation while ensuring our regular operations remain unaffected. In support of community engagement, we may consider fee waivers on an individual basis.


All community groups and organizations wishing to utilize an NTC vehicle and operator for their event fall under the purview of this policy.


The General Manager oversees policy oversight, while the Transit Operations staff handles the charter requests. The NTC retains the right to adjust charter arrangements to suit operational needs.

Service Availability

Charters depend on resource availability and may be cancelled with notice, especially in emergencies or unexpected operational challenges.
