My experience with a weekday Casino Bus Tour from EastTex Frwy (US-59 and Lauder Rd) to Coushatta Casino. Reserve a seat (50 available) at least 1 day ahead with your name and phone number. The ticket counter opens about 7:15am for a 8:30am departure. There was a nice lounge with complimentary coffee and restroom. Departure/Return tickets cost $17 per person with a Coushatta (Cou) Card and ID. You can chose your seat assignment(s) and it is written down on the ticket. Some folks leave their jackets, lunch bags, etc. at the seat during the 5 hour casino stay.

The bus arrives about 8:30am and the Driver takes your Departure ticket stub. The bus ride to Cou was 3hrs long and came with a movie. One passenger volunteered to take tips (~$1pp) for the driver. I recommend bringing water, snacks maybe a sandwich. The bus had leather seats, arm rests, foot rests, a bathroom at the back and weak WiFi (too weak to view YouTube, but strong enough for light browsing like Yahoo Finance). Upon arrival at Cou, a person swipes your Cou Card when you exit the bus and downloads a $10 slot credit. Make sure you know your pin number. The Cou Lunch Buffet costs $12pp with Cou Card.

The bus leaves about 4:30pm and is also 3hrs long with a movie. The driver will usually take your Return ticket stub to let you onboard and you will sit at the same seat on the Return leg. Some folks bring food onboard and eat on the way home, Trash bags are supplied at the seats. Overall the trip is relaxing, the passengers are mostly friendly seniors, which makes the trip go by fast.

I would give 5oo5, if the WiFi was stronger.
