Changes in shuttle destination or date:
Paddlers sometimes wish to change a shuttle destination or the date of the shuttle after they are already on the river. We will do everything possible to respond to such a request; however, requests made after 2:00 PM may not be able to be fulfilled until the following day. Also, changes in destination may result in an additional charge, especially if the vehicle has already been moved to the original destination and/or extra staff expense is incurred in handling the request.

Vehicle problems:
Vehicles breakdowns which create inordinate staff time to handle or other BOC out-of-pocket-expenses may result in an additional charge. These problems can include flat tire(s), engine issues, inadequate gasoline level, etc.
