Getting There & Away

Dubuque is just over three hours west of Chicago via US 20 and I-90. Burlington Trailways (www.burlingtontrailways.com) runs one bus a day west on a meandering route (Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Ames etc) to Des Moines ($50, seven hours). Another bus goes east to Chicago ($45, 4½ hours).
