DoD Bus Program

The Department of Defense (DoD) Bus Program ensures that commercial bus, van and limousine companies offering charter service provide safe vehicles that consistently meet DoD standards of service. Almost 400 carriers participate in the program, offering ground transportation to DoD travelers from individual passengers to groups, including troop movement and recruit travel.  Because of the number of passengers and baggage requirements related to group movements, bus transportation is often the most economical and efficient method of moving DoD personnel.

The Defense Travel Management Office (DTMO) manages the program through an agreement with carriers that establishes the specific terms, conditions and standards that must be met when providing transportation for DoD passengers.  DoD Bus Agreement #5 replaces Military Bus Agreement #4, which expired June 01, 2020.
