Important Charter Bus Information:
Passengers are allowed to stow ONE bag in the under bus storage area and may also bring ONE smaller carry-on bag ONLY. Before the bus departs, each passenger will be given the cell phone number of a "bus monitor" (a fellow student passenger who is responsible for checking all other passengers onto the bus). The monitor will act as a contact for students should they need to call the bus once they de-board, or when they are waiting for the bus to arrive on the return trip. Remember that all times listed below are approximate and will be dependent on weather, traffic and fuel or meal stops. The bus is equipped with a television, VCR or DVD player and a restroom. NO REFUNDS will be allowed for any reason. Unused tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
One way and round trip fares are listed respectively under each destination.
