2021-2022 Student Break Bus Trips

For the 22nd year, after starting in 1999, we are excited to be able to offer student charter bus transportation between State College and the DC metro area.

The student charter buses, sponsored by the Metro Washington, DC Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association, provides safe, reliable, and economic transportation for students traveling between State College and the Washington, DC metro area over holiday and semester breaks.  Pick up/drop off is at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, MD. The trip between State College and Washington, DC usually takes about 4 hours, but keep in mind that travel times may vary with weather and/or traffic issues.


Students will be asked to wear a mask on the bus and follow all Penn State University COVID-19 Guidelines.Students will be asked to wear a mask on the bus and follow all Penn State University COVID-19 Guidelines.
