5. What makes the Ram Van different from other College transportation systems?

What's unique about the Office of Intercampus Transportation here at Fordham University is that the Ram Van transportation system is mostly student-run, with 3 full-time administrators (all of whom are former Ram Van drivers themselves) and 115 student workers.  Fordham is the only college in the United States with a large-scale transportation system that does not outsource for its transportation needs.
