Indian Trails’ motor coach service throughout Michigan and the near Midwest has been expanded to two new locations — Flint’s Bishop International Airport and Union Station Chicago.
Beginning April 4, four daily trips will be made between Flint’s Bishop International Airport and points north (Saginaw, Bay City, Alpena, the Upper Peninsula) and west (Owosso, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, etc.).
Coaches will arrive at Bishop at 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. from the west and at 1:30 and 4 p.m. from points north. Coaches depart to points west of Flint at 10:45 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. and to points north at 3 p.m. daily. Coaches will depart and arrive from the MTA bus stop at the east end of the terminal.
“This extension of service expands area access to Bishop International Airport, providing connectivity from rural areas to a major air hub,” says Gordon Mackay, president of Indian Trails. “Using a motor coach to reach the airport also reduces energy consumption and hydrocarbon pollution. It’s a win-win.”
Airlines available at Bishop are Air Tran, American, Continental Connection, Delta and Frontier.
Also beginning April 4, all Indian Trails arrivals to Chicago will offer service to Union Station. Coaches will arrive at Union Station at 2:25, 5:50, 8:35 and 11:15 p.m. (central time) daily, delivering passengers to the east side of Canal Street, 300 feet south of Jackson Boulevard.
Connections will be available to Amtrak service (to Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis and New Orleans), to MetraRail commuter trains throughout the Chicago suburban area and to CTA trains to O’Hare and local points within the city. More local service information is available at MetraRail.com and at TransitChicago.com.
