The cost is $176 for Chicagoland, $141 for the Twin Cities and $151 for the Kansas City route, and each ticket is based on round-trip fares only. Seating is limited, and we operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

You will receive a confirmation email when your order has been processed. Please note tickets are non-refundable, unless the bus is overbooked or canceled. Please see the reservation page for more details.

It is the students' responsibility to be on time. Buses will depart as scheduled. Drake University is not responsible for loss or damage of personal items.
