Clear Choice Transportation
***PLEASE READ PRIOR TO RIDING WITH US***
CLEAR CHOICE is a transportation service and we have no authority over the rules and policies of the PRISONS. Keep in mind if you are denied a visit OR your visit is shortened by the prison ----CLEAR CHOICE is not responsible to refund any payments made as we have fulfilled our obligation as a transportation service; bringing you to the prison and returning you back to the pickup location.
Each seat requires a $35 deposit, due 3 days before the trip.
Deposits can be made online with a major credit card/debit card under
the Online Payment tab
NOTE: If you're making a deposit with a PREPAID CARD, it takes 3 days to post so enure you make your payment 3 days prior to the trip for the payment to clear. The funds must be cleared through PAYPAL before you can take the trip.
Deposits can be collected by one of our associates at Starbucks
located at 160 West 87th St., Chicago, IL., AND also at Dunkin Doughnuts at 1614 West 59th St., Chicago, IL.
Please give us a call to arrange a time. IF an associate needs to come to you to pick up your deposit there will be an additional charge for this service dependent upon where you are located.
NOTE: For those of you who weren't able to make a deposit you can still come to the bus and pay the day of the trip; HOWEVER there is no guarantee there will be a seat available. It is IMPORTANT to put your deposit down online or arrange to meet an associate for deposit collection prior to the trip to ensure you have a seat. UNFORTUNATELY, we are unable to hold seats without a deposit.
Trip day is generally 14 to 16 hours.
BOARDING 5:20 am (time subject to change)
DEPARTURE 5:30 am (time subject to change)
This is a long day, however we will not be able to stop for breakfast. We urge you to make arrangements to eat and/or bring your breakfast prior to boarding the bus.
If we cancel and need to reschedule, all deposits will be refunded.
If you cancel within 72 hours prior to the trip, you'll receive a full refund.
If you cancel after 72 hrs you will be charged a $20 cancellation fee and the remainder of your deposit will be refunded.
NO SHOW ON DAY OF TRIP:
If you do not show up on your scheduled trip day, you will loose any deposit you have made.
Refunds will be returned in the manner in which they were received. If you made a payment online the refund will be processed back online (generally takes 3-4 days for the refund to get processed through PAYPAL)
DRESS ATTIRE: If you are denied your visit because of the clothes you have on WE ARE NOT OBLIGATED nor WILL WE BE ABLE to take you to a department store for a change of clothes and YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR PAYMENT. To prevent this, we STRONGLY SUGGEST you bring an alternate set of clothes or if unsure call the prison and they will let you know about your clothing.
