We used Tri-State Travel for our wedding transportation! They provided two trolleys to accommodate all of our guests! They showed up early & prepared to transport all of our guests to & from our wedding venue! The drivers were kind and patient especially with all our wedding guests on the way home. They were easy to work with & provided us a transportation schedule based on our wedding timeline! Would highly recommend for any wedding or event!

I work at the Stephenson County Farm Bureau in Freeport. We have used Tri-State Travel's transportation services for at least two bus trips per year for almost 14 years. Our members have never been disappointed. Cindy and Jack are both gems to work with!
