No reservations are necessary when you travel with Hoosier Ride. If you know the departure schedule, simply arrive at the terminal at least an hour before departure to purchase your ticket. Boarding generally begins 15 to 30 minutes before departure. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance purchase tickets do not guarantee a seat.
When Hoosier Ride / Miller Transportation fills a regularly scheduled bus with passengers during times of peak demand, Hoosier Ride / Miller Transportation plans for additional buses to accommodate passengers beyond the seating capacity of a single bus for any given schedule. However, our ability to add extra sections depends on the availability of buses, drivers and the number of passengers.
When picking up passengers en route (such as at a rest stop), continuing passengers who de-boarded at the rest stop are given priority to re-board.
Hoosier Ride / Miller Transportation buses travel around the clock, so you can travel by day and enjoy the scenery through wide panoramic windows. Or, select a night service, and relax in a reclining seat with reduced interior lighting. Most buses make intermediate stops to pick up additional passengers en route to their destinations. In addition to stops en route, buses make rest stops every few hours, and meal stops are scheduled as close to normal meal times as possible. If you prefer not to travel on a bus that includes multiple stops en route, be sure to ask your ticket agent about our express schedules, which are available on select routes.
Our buses are equipped with air conditioning, an on-board restroom, reclining seats with headrests, footrests and tinted windows. Feel free to bring reading material, radio headsets and a small pillow for your comfort. Food and non-alcoholic beverages may be carried on board for personal consumption.
In many cases Miller Transportation uses buses from its existing fleet to provide service for locations served by Hoosier Ride service. In some cases smaller, mid-sized buses are used to provide this service. These buses may not be lavatory-equipped, but drivers will stop on request to make rest stops as needed.
External power outlets are available on many Hoosier Ride / Miller Transportation buses. Our buses are not equipped for movies on board, although some connecting carriers may offer this service.
