GETTING TO THE AIRPORTS!

 

Bus from Houston, Texas to DFW (Dallas/Ft Worth) on Saturday, March 26 to drop Singers flying home early. Depart Houston approximately 7:00 AM with DFW drop off about 12:30 PM - - CIT TRANSPORTATION - AMES

There is NO plan to stop at any other airports, thus you would be on your own to get to Houston Airport System (HAS) (Texas) if you wish to leave from Houston.

Estimated time of arrival in Des Moines (DSM) is after 1:00 AM (during the night) on Sunday, March 27. I am not sure we can make a drop at that hour. See me if you want to drop in Des Moines and we will see if there is an all night restaurant nearby.
