Using Bus2NotreDame is so wonderful; all I have to do is show up and everything is taken care of for me! Not only is it a great breakfast, you can enjoy a Bloody Mary (or two) on the way there, park nearby without any hassle, have a great tailgate and get a tour of the beautiful Notre Dame campus by an actual student! After the game, you get back on the bus, have a drink and relax all the way home! Thanks Bus2NotreDame for a great experience!
Jack took a group of 55 Oklahoma Sooners to South Bend in September, 2013 for a football weekend. Jack was easy to work with and more than met our expectations. Since we were all at the same hotel, Jack picked us up at the hotel and took us to PJ Clark’s for a breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravey and bloody mary’s. We then had open bar to the game and parked just south of the ND stadium parking lot. Within 30 minutes of arriving in South Bend, a tailgate lunch was served that consisted of hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, jambalaya, shrimp, beer and open bar. Jack’s assistants gave a number of us tours of the ND campus prior to game time. After the game, we were greeted with dinner of chicken pasta and jambalaya.
Jack delivered on everything promised and then some and made the day completely enjoyable. He even delivered sunny weather and a victory! I fully endorse http://bus2notredame.com for your game day transportation needs to South Bend from Chicago.

We were with a group of over 50 people coming to see our Sooners play Notre Dame. Knowing we would all be traveling together to and from the game on a charter with food, drink and friends was something my wife and I were looking forward to. We were not disappointed. Jack and his staff did a wonderful job from the time they picked us up at our hotel in Chicago until they dropped us off later that evening. The food was wonderful, starting at P.J. Clarkes for breakfast and bloody marys then our tailgate lunch and dinner. All the drinks you would want were provided all day long. A truly wonderful experience and I would highly recommend using Bus 2 Notre Dame if you want to have a marvelous experience on your “game day”.

My nephew and I met in Chicago as OU fans to attend the OU-Notre Dame game. I just lucked onto the Bus2NotreDame site, and it worked out great. Another review gives a play by play of food and beverage, so I won’t, but it was all fresh, clean and well served. The reception by both Jack and his staff as well as the Notre Dame fans was exceptional, and their was no part of the trip or refreshments that was anything other than excellent.

After 20 years of going to Notre Dame football games, we were looking for something different in terms of getting to the game. My brother stumbled upon bus2notredame and we all agreed that we would give this a try for the Michigan State game. We certainly made the right decision.
Jack greeted us at the pub with a warm smile and a firm handshake (and gave us a game day t-shirt !). We saddled up to the bar and enjoyed breakfast along with a few bloody mary’s. The bus was on time and we were on our way. Refreshments were served along the entire trip. Upon arriving at Notre Dame, Jack and his crew set up the tailgate which included shrimp, oysters, brats and burgers (along with cold beers and bar drinks). What a great time.
After the Irish victory, we were treated to a pasta dinner before leaving for Chicago. Further refreshments were provided for the remainder of the journey. As a side, we were also given free drink tickets for the pub once we got back.
We’ve tried all the methods of travel to Notre Dame to include: staying in South Bend; taking the train from Chicago; hiring a limo from Chicago, etc. None of these compare to Jack’s operation.
We highly recommend bus2notredame and we’ll certainly be booking with Jack again next year.
Thanks again Jack.

This was our first time to use this bus service to South Bend with Jack Mooney as the tour director. We could not have been more pleased with the professional effort that Jack made to satisfy his customers. He was extremely organized and made it a point to meet and visit with all of us on this bus trip. I highly recommend Jack and his company to anyone who wants to see a football game at Notre Dame. In fact we already have made reservations for a 2014 football game in South Bend!
thanks Jack for a great time!

I contacted Jack Mooney after finding his name on the Notre Dame Club of Chicago. He was one of the most helpful and honest men I have ever met. He helped us locate tickets etc.
On game day my husband and kids met him at a pub in Chicago where we had breakfast and bloodies. We then got on the bus where we met many other fun Notre Dame fans from all over the states and the bus provided drinks there and back. When we arrived at the school Jack set up a wonderful tailgate and a tour of the beautiful campus. The game was a blast as Notre Dame beat Michigan! But then when the game was over Jack had a nice hot pasta dinner waiting for us. This was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to go again! Thank you Jack!!!!!
