             Check out our ! Shows all of our stops and numbers for each route.

  • How does your schedule work?

              Deadwood and Spearfish are the only routes that have a set schedule. All of our routes in Sturgis start running at Noon everyday and have their designated stops on each route and run every 30-60 minutes or more depending on traffic. On big concert nights, any buses heading to Buffalo Chip or Full Throttle can take longer due to heavy traffic times so plan at least 3+ hours to get to your destination. We do not have set times for Sturgis due to changing traffic or other delays. Last bus is at 1:30am so please plan on leaving before that time if you have a long trip. Follow our Facebook Page for any updates on delays/changes to routes/schedules. Check out our Schedules here!

  • How does your transporation system work during the Rally?

             Each of our routes numbered (each bus has a number listed on the front/side) which makes it easy to transfer and know which bus to get on.

           We have 3 Main Transfer Points: 4th & Sherman St. Depot located downtown Sturgis and The Stump Hub located on Hwy 34 next to Kickstart Travel Center (corner of street where you go to Glencoe Campground). We also have a stop located at Middle & Main St. in Sturgis (no depot at this location).

           Example: You are at Hog Heaven and want to go Glencoe. You will get on the #1 bus at Hog Heaven, ride to our 4th & Sherman St. Depot and get off. Then jump on our #5 bus which will take you to 'The Stump' Depot where you will get off at.
