Transpo and Rideshares


Leaders cannot take an active role in making arrangements for participants' transportation. The Sierra Club does not have insurance for carpooling arrangements and assumes no liability for them. The leader supplies directions to the trailhead, but carpooling, ride sharing or anything similar is strictly a private arrangement among the participants. Participants assume the risks associated with this travel. Riders customarily share expenses with drivers. The contribution varies with the vehicle, number of riders, road condition, etc.

Buses and Watercraft

Outings chairs must ensure that sponsored bus trips comply with Sierra Club rules. The rules applying to bus trips are outlined in the Insurance Guide. Bus trip rules require the sponsoring leader to determine that the bus company being chartered has a valid certificate of insurance which names the Sierra Club as additional insured. This certificate must be on file in the chapter office. In order to give leaders more freedom in the selection of bus companies. There is no official list. The leader is responsible for checking with the chapter office to see if the chosen bus company has a current certificate on file. If not, the leader or outings chair must secure a renewal or new certificate from the bus company and send it to the chapter office and/or OMC Chair before the trip. Forms for this purpose are available in the chapter office or from the OMC Chair. In the case of lapsed certificates or refusal to add the Sierra Club as additional insured, the bus company must not be used.
