Thanks for requesting transportation. Here are a few guidelines. Please read carefully (even if you have received these in the past as there has been some confusion) and provide all requested info. We cannot begin working on your transportation request without all information needed.

Global Connections will only fulfill transportation requests from Internationals to the following transportation centers: Toledo Express Airport, Toledo Amtrak Station, Toledo Greyhound Bus Station, Toledo MegaBus Station, and Detroit Metro Airport.

We request two week’s notice for transportation requests since Global Connections Volunteers have families, jobs, and other activities. It’s difficult to rearrange schedules at the last minute. While we can’t guarantee a volunteer can fill your request, we will certainly try our best. Because of this, you should also definitely consider some alternative travel plans (such as the shuttle 419-308-5952).

To reserve your transport, you must email us your confirmed travel plans (i.e. a copy of your ticket). We will not work on finding a Volunteer for your request without confirmed travel plans. In addition to completing the online form here, you must send a copy of your ticket to us by email.

If there are others traveling with you, we will need their names. We typically cannot accommodate last-minute requests for additional people to join you in either a drop-off or a pick-up unless we are sufficiently notified since we often combine transportation requests we have received, especially over break times, to make the most of our volunteer's time and gas.

If you are planning to ask other Global Connections Volunteers for help, please let us know to avoid confusion.

The Global Connections Board and Attorney require you to fill out and sign a transportation consent and release form for both drop-off and pick-up. You must give these forms to the volunteer driver (please do not scan and email the form).

Since Global Connections Volunteers are not receiving payment for this service, we are asking that you help pay for gas by providing a $20 donation for both a drop-off to and/or pick-up from the Toledo Express Airport, Toledo Amtrak Station, Toledo Megabus Stop, or the Toledo Greyhound Bus Station and a $40 donation for Detroit Metro Airport. Please keep in mind that our volunteers are making a round trip to and from Bowling Green to help you out. These donations — along with your travel release form — should be given to the volunteer driver.
