“Why would anyone want to drive to Chicago from Rockford for an enjoyable downtown activity? Why fight the traffic? Remember once you arrive you must worry about where to park. Is my car safe? Downtown parking is expensive. Sometimes getting to your destination might require a long walk! Why go through the pain, worry, and stress. We will get you right to your destination and pick you up when you’re finished at your destination. Our buses are extremely comfortable. Does it get any better than that?” Janet
