      Designate a Bus Captain

      Each bus in your caravan should designate a Bus Captain responsible for tracking passengers during and after the festivities.


      Prepare Passengers to Walk

      Passengers should be prepared to walk. Passenger drop-off could range from 1 to 3 miles away from the events.


      Designate a Meeting Place

      Provide a contingency plan for passengers. Designate a meeting place in the event passengers are separated from the group. Cell phone use may be limited.


      Check the Weather

      Check weather reports one to two days prior to your trip and advise passengers to dress accordingly.


      Alert Riders to Pack Light

      Advise passengers to pack light. The US Secret Service, Metropolitan Police Department, US Capitol Police, and other local and federal agencies are providing an unprecedented level of security for the Inauguration.
