Midwest Bus Trips is a Dubuque company is mainly known for offering ride to groups of people to all the well-known events, like concerns and sports games.
Aaron Rainey, owner the company has mentioned that he was hoping 2020 to be Midwest Bus Trips’ one of the best years. But, COVID-19 pandemic had some other plans.
“We had 120 trips planned for this year, but we ended up doing three trips which, of course, devastated our business,” Rainey said. “I am not sure how I made it through, but we did and here we are.”
In 2021, though, as the tourism industry is hoped to bounce back, he is all set to pick things back up. That is why in the coming days, Midwest Bus Trips will be starting their local tours once again: one tour will take travelers to the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, another one will help them to explore the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens and Eagle Point Park. There’s going to be a third one which will consist of a two-hour-long historical tour of Dubuque.
Rainey has explained that he feels quite positive about what tourism will look like this year.
“From what we are hearing from the hotels, reservations are going up,” Rainey said. “We are getting calls, we are selling tickets to our events which, again, to me says people are ready to get out there and get ready to get things opened up and ready to go do things.”
Rainey mentioned that they will be adhering to the safety guidelines inside the buses in toto, like sanitation. Also, they have upgraded the bus air filter system.
Whether people will have to wear a mask inside the buses or not, Rainey said that he will follow whatever the city of Dubuque is mandating.
