Details on how to collect Break Bus Bucks will be included in the confirmation email for spring Break Bus.   

Break Buses Depart Promptly. Break Buses leave campus early on Saturday morning following the last day of classes and return the Sunday immediately prior to classes starting. Ticket holders should arrive early for all bus trips. Each rider may bring no more than three pieces of luggage that are tagged for identification; please tag bags before arriving for the bus. These are long trips and riders should be prepared with snacks, food and beverages as needed. A confirmation email with detailed itineraries, including times and locations of stops, will be sent to each rider.

Safety Precautions. Riders will be required to comply with COVID-19 safety precautions as set forth by the Transportation Services Administration (TSA) and/or the CDC. Effective June 18, 2021, riders are required to wear masks on the buses at all times except when eating or drinking, at least through September 13, 2021.
