Transportation Requests

February 9th, 2015

Helping out with transportation requests for current Internationals residing in BG is another type of service that Global Connections offers. Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone–though we would like to. We can only take a certain number of requests based on the number of Volunteers we have available to help. We REQUIRE a two week’s notice for all requests and we can only offer rides to Detroit and Toledo transportation centers. A donation of $40 to Detroit and $20 to Toledo is necessary. Get your requests for Spring Break in soon by contacting Mallory at

Winter Break Transportation Requests

December 1st, 2014

GC is completely full with transportation requests for the winter break.  Currently, we are only receiving requests that are already at the same transportation center and on the same date/relatively close in timeframe (within a couple of hours) as a transportation request we received earlier. Another option to explore is the BG Airport Shuttle, (419) 308-5952.
