AAA Expects Increase in Bus Travel this Thanksgiving
DES MOINES, Iowa -- When you think of Thanksgiving travel you might think about a road trip with the family or fighting long lines at the airport, but fewer people consider taking the bus to their final destination. Ricky Lee Jurgensen is one of an estimated 1.48 million passengers who AAA estimates will travel this holiday by bus, train, or cruise ship. For the short-ish ride from Kansas City to visit his brother in Des Moines, he says it’s the way to travel.
