Welcome to the Ram Van online sign up tutorial! Our system is designed to be straightforward and intuitive, but just in case you’re confused or want a little help for your first time, you have come to the right place.
In order to access the online sign up page, type the address (address will be given once the system goes live) into your web browser’s address bar. Alternatively, you can find the link on our department homepage, at www.fordham.edu/ramvan. Upon entering the site for the first time, you will see the following page:
Here, you will be able to see any current reservations under your name.
In the left sidebar, all upcoming trips will be listed, as well as the number of vans departing at each time. The little van icon indicates the number of available seats still left at that time. If the van is colored green, there is still space- if it’s red, it is all full. Next to the van icon is the official trip number.
Once you find the van you would like to sign up on, click on either the van icon or the trip number to be taken to this screen:
If you’re just signing up yourself, all you have to do is type in your name and click “make reservation.” If you want to sign up guests, just click on “add additional guests” and three additional spaces will be generated for you to put the name of your guests.
Please note that passenger lists are printed and vans begin loading 15 minutes prior to departure. At this point, you will not be able to reserve your seat online, and will have to sign up at the van in person.
Once you do, you will be taken back to the home screen, and the reservation you made will appear under your current reservations:
If you need to cancel a reservation, all you have to do is click on the van icon or trip number under your “current reservations.” Please note that when you sign up for a given time, you will not be able to put your name on an additional list for vans leaving within 1 hour of that time. Please note that this restriction only applies in one direction: signing up for a Rose Hill to Lincoln Center trip will not affect your ability to sign up for a return trip from Lincoln Center to Rose Hill.
