1. What do we need to bring to cross the border?
Everyone requires a passport to cross the border. If you do not have a passport you cannot get on the bus.
2. Are we allowed to purchase alcohol at the duty free? How much alcohol are we permitted to bring back to Canada?
You are welcome to purchase alcohol at duty free however no alcohol is permitted on the bus.
If you purchase alcohol while in the U.S. it cannot be brought back to Canada. If you have alcohol left at the conclusion of the trip it must be consumed or dumped prior to crossing the border.
No alcohol is to cross back to Canada. If there is any alcohol on board and the CBSA discovers this they will perform a full bus inspection. This could potentially delay our arrival by upwards of two hours.
3. Is drinking permitted on the bus?
Drinking is permitted. Please remember that you must respect the individuals around you. Individuals that display aggressive or rude behavior will be ejected from the trip.
4. Can we bring our own drinks?
No one is to bring alcoholic beverages on the bus. Due to past experiences we no longer allow individuals to bring their own alcohol on the bus. We do, however, purposely under sell every trip to allow for hosts and coolers with alcoholic beverages at the front of the bus. The drinks are provided at a reasonable cost ($3 per beer). This is done to allow us to control the intake of alcoholic beverages.
Our main goal is to provide each individual with a care free trip that is enjoyable for everyone.
5. Will there be food on the bus?
We will be making a stop on the way to Buffalo for food.
6. Where are the tickets located and will my entire group be sitting together?
Although tickets are typically located in the 300 sections there is a chance that they are scattered throughout the stadium.
If we are able to sit your entire group together we will but this is not always the possible. Groups of 2-6 will always be together but above that number it is not a guarantee.
7. What time should we expect to arrive back in Ottawa?
Depending on traffic and border crossing time you should expect to arrive at the drop-off locations for 12:55pm
8. Is there parking available downtown?
Everyone is on their own for parking. There are various paid lots as well as city of Ottawa parking lots.
