When I moved (it was a half hour drive, shorter than yours, but over some Really Bumpy country roads) I just put my horned frogs' whole tank in the front passenger seat and buckled it in. He actually stayed buried through the ordeal, so maybe he did not even realize what happened. I would cover the sides of the tank with something, if the frog is out and awake, to minimize stress, but make sure you dont leave him (or the others) in a hot car or in the sunlight. Not sure where you live, but you might either use air conditioning or heat in the car to make it a comfy temperature for them.
For my more active frogs (leopards and toads) I did put them in small carrying cages because their tanks are full of rocks and the water would have shifted all over. I just used large deli containers with moist paper towels and/or a centimetre of water.
