November 18, 2023 Bus Trip to Florida/Mizzou
Saint Louis to Columbia Round Trip

We have chartered a 50 passenger bus (with restroom!) to fun and hassle-free transportation from St. Louis to Mizzou.

The cost is $55 per person that covers the bus, parking pass, and tip for the driver.  Contact us if you are interested - you can pay in person at a watch party or venmo us.  Venmo username is @GatewayGatorsAlumni and the last 4 digits of the phone number is 0375.

We have two pickup/drop-off spots this year - one in Forest Park and one in St. Charles. Details and map are below and in this printable PDF map.

We will be parking in the Truman's Landing RV & Bus lot (see map below). We will depart 30 minutes after the game ends. (11/11 update - we have one automobile parking pass for a reserved spot in the lot - best offer gets it)

The University of Florida Alumni Association requires us to have a signed waiver for each person participating in any event that the club provides transportation. Please print out and bring a completed copy of this waiver for each family traveling at the bus pickup location. 

We will follow federal COVID transportation guidance in place at the time of the trip (currently, masks on unless eating or drinking).
