Buses and Carpools


Every year pro-life groups organize transportation from around the state to come join the Texas Rally for Life. Last year there were more than 20.

If you or your organization is coordinating buses or carpools, email us and we will post the information on this page. Check back for updated information on carpooling and transportation.

For information on how to charter a bus, try the search term “charter a bus” in Google. The cost is usually $10-$35 per person depending on the distance.
