About Indian Trails

Indian Trails is an American intercity bus carrier that provides passenger transportation across Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. The company is one of the key ground travel operators in the area, conducting about 2671 trips every day. The Indian Trails network features 49 cities, including Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, Kalamazoo, and Grand Rapids.

Pros
The fact that I got to Chicago on time
Cons
The driver showed up late and it was not clear when I bought the ticket that it had to be printed out. The wifi was very slow and I couldn’t do much on it
Tips
Print out your ticket and expect the bus not to show up on time

Pros
I liked that the people on the bus were nice and the driver was friendly and understanding when we encountered problems.
Cons
The bus being overbooked and almost having to leave a bunch of us behind was a huge inconvenience. While for me it was bad enough, because if I didn’t get on that bus I couldn’t go home for the weekend, but for the group of people that were traveling together and almost...More
Tips
If you are going on a long trip, take the seats in the back, they will likely be clear towards the end, especially after the first couple popular stops. It makes for a comfortable open space if you end up being the only one back there.

Pros
Outlets for charging phone
Cons
Timeliness. The bus was over an hour late. More legroom. My knees were against the hard seat in front of me. Fortunately, there was no one next to me so I could tun my legs towards the empty seat.
Tips
Don't use Indian Trails unless you really have to.

Driver will very knowledgeable and willing to share that with passengers. While her jokes were lame she did give us a disclaimer that stated that fact. Great driver service. Perhaps the best driver I’ve experienced as a 50yr old.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Indian Trails buses have WiFi?

Yes, Indian Trails offers WiFi on their buses. Although most trips with Indian Trails will have WiFi as advertised, some buses might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Indian Trails WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Are there power outlets or USB plugs on the bus?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Indian Trails buses. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Indian Trails might sometimes use replacement bus vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
