    Is there any sort of shuttle or party bus or anything that goes from Des Moines up to Ames on gameday?
    My buddies and I would prefer not to draw straws to see who gets to be the DD that day.
    So im wondering if there are any other options at all that anyone knows of?

    That would be a good business idea, except you'd probably have someone puke in the shuttle bus every weekend.

    Its such a good idea that I started thinking that there very well may be something of the sort. Although ive never heard of anything.
    It makes perfect sense.

    You could just stay in Ames somewhere.

    Called the Union, like a month ago, and it was already full.
    Has the cab service in Ames gotten any better?
    I think one or maybe even two of the people going would prefer to return to DSM that night. So was hoping for some sort of shuttle bus.

    I would charge $200 per head up front including $150 deposit. If you puke, I keep the whole $200. If you don't, I return the $150.

    If I lived in Des Moines I would be thinking about starting up that business. I'd be willing to forego booze to rake in some money on gameday. Could probably pay for your season tickets and then some if you had a full van for every game.

    Well that's one place down out of about 20. Tell one of the two people that want to return to DSM that night that they have been crowned DD.

    There are 2 other hotels right next to Gateway, and Holiday Inn and a Best Western, I believe.

    This. Drive to Ames on Saturday, take Cy-Ride or even a cab to a hotel after the game/festivities, reverse the process on Sunday.
