    Getting to Indianapolis

    :: Bargain Transportation from Chicago, Cincinnati, and Columbus

    Cheap round-trip bus transportation to Indianapolis is now available from Chicago, Cincinnati, and Columbus. This economical Bus Line is called the Megabus.

    The Megabus fleet has very nice buses that run directly to Indianapolis from these three outlying cities, and if you book early, you can ride for as little as $1. That's correct, only $ 1. This is not a misprint.

    For the recent Indianapolis AMI Interim Board Meeting, Pat Thomas actually went round-trip to Indy from Chicago for only $8. This is faster than flying from these cities, with no security lines at the airport or long waits for baggage. This comes highly recommended by both Pat Thomas and Marcia Hartsock.

    So book early for the best rates... you're not going to believe these prices.

    Please visit www.megabus.com for more information.
