We're pleased to offer round-trip shuttle service from Ames, Iowa, which will transport guests to the front door of the Blank Performing Arts Center in Indianola, Iowa, right in time for the pre-performance opera preview. This special shuttle costs $15/person and will be available for the first three Sundays of the season. The Ames Shuttle will pick up guests from the North Grand Mall (2801 Grand Ave, Ames) in the NE corner of the parking lot. We encourage guests to arrive at the bus by 11:30am, leaving plenty of time to board and get situated before the 11:45am departure.
