If you’re looking for a unique trip that will give you both relaxation and exhilaration in the same day, consider taking a casino bus trip in Michigan, Indiana, Canada, and beyond! Here are four reasons why you should take a charter bus to a casino soon.

Casino bus tours are a unique experience.

  1. You can bring your own snacks and beverages.

Let’s face it; it’s not very exciting having to choose from a couple options of food or drink when you’re on a trip. One of the many perks of taking a casino bus tour is that you can bring your favorite soda, juice, snack, or sandwich. No more settling required.

  1. Get out and socialize!

Sure, everyone needs some alone time now and then. But socializing is good for your mental and physical health, it gets you out in the world, plus it’s just plain fun! Enjoying time spent with friends, family, and even people you just met is good for the soul and can be extremely refreshing even if you aren’t the biggest social butterfly. Take it from us, you meet a lot of great people on our trips.

  1. Luxury amenities along the way.
  • Wi-Fi games. If you’re making the trip to a casino yourself, there’s no way you could play that hot new mobile game. But with Indian Trails, you can, thanks to our complimentary Wi-Fi on all buses. Take some time during your trip to work your way up the leaderboard. If you haven’t found “your game” yet, try out Word Cookies, Pictoword, or the ever-popular Candy Crush Saga!
  • Charge up. What’s the point of playing that game, reading news, or scanning social media on your device if your battery is dead once you get to your destination? Our buses have power outlets near every seat, too, so be sure to bring your charger!
  • Rest up. No one said you have to be on your device on the way to your gaming trip. With quiet and clean buses, you can rest easy in our reclining chairs. So, go ahead and take a nap on the way.
  1. Special deals galore.

Many casinos have special amazing deals designed specifically for bus shuttles and charter companies like us. Take Greektown Casino, for example. With our partnership, you can take a scheduled shuttle to the casino for $15 per person, plus you get $25 in slot play! Indian Trails scheduled shuttle service to Detroit’s Greektown Casino offers 12 convenient pick-up locations throughout greater metropolitan Detroit, Tuesday through Thursday. 

If you’re ready to go, visit our casino page for pick-up locations. No reservation is required - all seats are first come first serve. Pay your driver by credit card as you board the bus.
