When planning your trip to Newark, Delaware, the first item on your list should be making sure you know how to pronounce it. Unlike the New Jersey town with the same spelling, it's pronounced NEW-ark! With that down, enjoy this signature college town, with beautiful landscapes, parks and a reservoir.

UDel and its over 22,000 students are at the heart of Newark. It has a stunning campus with an urban feeling, close to the downtown area with cafes, bars and restaurants. Notable alumni include Joe Biden, Joe Flacco, Daniel Nathans, and Chris Christie.

Outside of the campus, you can enjoy many natural attractions, including White Clay Creek State Park (perfect for a hike through its trails), Newark Reservoir (amazing city views along the surrounding path), Rittenhouse Park (check out the trout-filled creek) and the Judge Morris Estate (dating back to the 1700s).

OurBus is proud to provide high-quality transportation to the residents of Newark, DE and the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University of Delaware. We work with only the best bus companies to ensure all trips are on a modern charter-style motor coach that has all the modern amenities of WiFi, power outlets, reclining seats, an onboard bathroom and free water. We're biased, but we think there's no easier and more affordable way to travel this route than by bus.
