A bus trip flyer should serve as an eye-catching advertisement and an informative document that includes all the details of the trip. A successful flyer will answer any questions a person going on this bus trip would ask. These questions include the price of the trip, how to get tickets, the departure date, time and place and contact information for the trip organiser. Before you print your flyer, make sure you have answered the most common potential questions.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Microsoft Word. Click the Microsoft Office button found in the upper-left corner of the window and select "New" from the pull-down list to open the "New Document" dialogue box.

  2. 2

    Click the "Search Microsoft Office Online for a template" text box found at the top-centre of the "New Document" dialogue box and type "event flyer" and press enter.

  3. 3

    Choose a flyer template in the "New Document" dialogue box based on the destination of the bus trip or reason for the bus trip. Examples of destinations include a beach, amusement park or casino. Examples of reasons include a holiday, celebration or class trip. If you cannot find a flyer that represents your specific event, review the available templates and pick the one that has the structure you want your flyer to have. You can modify all elements of the template to suite your event, including text and images.

  4. 4

    Select the flyer by left clicking it with your mouse and press the "Download" button in the lower-right corner of the "New Document" dialogue box.

  5. 5

    Use the template you choose as a guide for what to place where on the flyer. Elements you must include in your flyer include the event name, the phrase "bus trip", date of the trip, departure time and location, return trip departure time and location and the price of the trip (if applicable). Include instructions for what people reading the flyer have to do to attend. Possibilities include getting a permission slip signed, buying tickets, showing up or registering for the trip. Also, include contact information for the event organiser for people who want to attend the trip, but they have additional questions or considerations.

  6. 6

    Modify a text element of the template. Select the text element by clicking on it. You will know you have successfully selected the element when an outline appears around the text. Type the text you wish to put in that location. Modify an image in the template by clicking the image to select it. You will know you have selected it because you will see an outline appear around the image. Right-click the image to open a submenu. Select "Change picture" from the menu and select an image to replace the visible image.
