Best way to transport my guppies?

Well I am starting a shrimp tank and need to move my guppies so they wont eat the shrimp. I am going to put them in my 20g at home but from campus to my house is 3 and a half hours. Any suggestions on how to transport them that is the best?

How many guppies we talking about?
A few should be fine in a big bucket, if theres alot you can buy a battery powered air pump to keep em oxygenated.

5 should be good in a plastic container or a cooler. Otherwise, bring them into a LFS and see if they will bag them and fill with O2.

The LFS I sell too is pretty low tech ill see if the guy might bag them for me before I head out but I have a cooler and a plastic tube so ill probably pock some holes in the top of the container and put it in the cooler just to be carfeul and the cooler has holes as well. That should be enough for just five hopefully

A battery air pump is handy to have around too.
