Details

Rides are provided in a large coach bus by the Windstar Company. You may bring up to two large bags on the bus. You can bring bicycles and other luggage, as long as there is room on the bus. Neither UW-Platteville nor the bus provider is responsible for any damage to luggage.

The cost to the Belvidere Oasis is $15 each way and the cost to Wendy’s or O’Hare in Chicago is $20 each way.

You must purchase a ticket a minimum of 48 hours before your trip leaves, at the UW-Platteville cashier's office located on the second floor of Brigham Hall. The office is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Contact them at 608.342.1211. They accept cash, check, and credit card.

Tickets are non-refundable and sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. You must present your ticket to the bus driver at the time of departure.

Schedules

We will make every effort to operate on schedule. Delays may occur from time to time due to traffic congestion and other unforeseen circumstances. Always allow ample transfer time for situations beyond our control.
