Jingle Bus

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring a large group with me? You bet! The Jingle Bus is great for large groups. To give the team a heads-up about your group of 20+, feel free to call ahead the day before at 414.220.4700 ext. 3.

How long will I need to wait for a bus? Not long - most riders are able to board within half an hour. The wait time might be a little longer on busier nights, but there are holiday coloring books, treats & more to enjoy.

What's the bus like? Coach USA ensures that you'll ride in style. Their excellently maintained coach buses have comfy seats, large windows to take in the sighs, an onboard restroom, sound system & more. 

Does the Jingle Bus stop along the route? It doesn't, but you're encouraged to return to favorite stops after your tour. Many locations on the route are accessible by a quick walk from the Plankinton Clover.
