Mission: To provide bus transportation for travelers on funded travel orders to and from Fukuoka Airport and U.S. Fleet Activities Sasebo.
***NOTE***: THE BLUE BUS CANNOT TAKE PETS. For personnel on PCS orders traveling with pets. You or your sponsor can contact Family Military Assistance Team for travel arrangements, CFAS_FMAT@fe.navy.mil (+81 956 503627). You will be issued a form for the pet transportation bus where you and your pet will ride together to Sasebo.
FUNDED ORDERS: Recommend Personnel on Funded Travel Orders (i.e. PCS, TAD, MEDEVAC, E-Leave, etc.) make reservations for “Priority” Seating approximately one week in advance using application below.
A copy of orders, leave request, and/or flight itinerary shall be given to the Bus Attendant upon check-in. Failure to provide these documents and display a Blue Bus request confirmation will result in being placed on stand by for “Priority Seating”.
SPACE AVAILABLE: Personnel requesting Space “A” are “NOT” guaranteed a seat and shall have a Government / Military ID card or Sponsor provided “Base Pass” when checking in with the bus attendant. Personnel with a reservation and flight itinerary will be given priority over other Space “A” requests.
Family Member Assistance Team (FMAT) highly recommends all personnel traveling Space “A” be aware of or have alternate travel arrangements in place. Overbooking occurs when personnel receive “last minute” travel orders; fail to request a seat in advance, and during holidays.
