Break Bus

The Undergraduate Student Government charters two buses to lower Michigan as an alternative way to travel for Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks.  The buses leave from campus at 8:00 AM the first Saturday of each break and make stops in St. Ignace, Gaylord, Clare, and East Lansing.  The buses leave from East Lansing at 8:00 AM on the Sunday before classes resume, and make the some stops in reverse order on their return trip to campus.

Tickets are purchased online through the Eventbrite website.  If you are interested in keeping up to date with all of our Break Buses, follow the USG Eventbrite page.

Please Note:
After a ticket is purchased, it is the student's responsibility to sign a liability release form, which will be emailed to the student after the ticket purchasing window closes. If a student who purchases a ticket does not sign a waiver, they will not be refunded or allowed to ride the bus. If a student is under the age of 18 at the time of riding the bus, they will need a parent to sign the waiver.
