Driver Information

Safety First

Remember that your safety, the safety of your passengers and of those around you is of primary importance.

You are to obey all traffic regulations while driving. If you are running late, remember that the students have a 30-minute window of time to reach their placements. It is better to be late than have an accident.

Any traffic tickets received will be your personal responsibility to pay. If you have any questions concerning this driving policy, please contact Learn and Serve at 716.286.8750 or 716.286.8752.

Defensive driving courses: If you have not taken a course yet, please find a session that is convenient for you. They are posted in the Learn and Serve Office. Everyone needs to have a valid defensive driving certificate.

Parking on Campus

Vans cannot be parked in accessible parking spaces, faculty (blue), or administration (white) spaces. Vans must go back in their designated space when they are not in use (including breaks).

Pick Up Conflict

If you are scheduled to pick up at a placement and NU at the same time, pick up at the placement first. You should always be at a placement at the time scheduled. Those going from NU to a placement have a 30-minute time period to get there. If you have any questions, please contact Learn and Serve at 716.286.8750.

Time Sheets

Please remember that time sheets are due every other Friday (work study). Please round your times to the nearest half hour. Under the total hours section, make sure you put the numbers down in hours (30 minutes = 0.5 hours). If you don't, you will accidentally dock your own pay! Please sign ALL of your time sheets in the binder for the semester when you come to the office. This will allow us to hand in the time sheet if you aren't available so that you will still get paid. You must dock a half hour if you work more than six consecutive hours.

Example: If there are two hours or more between runs, you must record that break on your time sheet. If your first run is at 8:30 a.m. and your second run is at 11 a.m., record 8:30-9 a.m. and then the 11 a.m. shift. If you work six or more hours, you must, by law, record a half hour break for lunch. For example, record 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and then noon to 3:30 p.m.
