No matter where you’re headed and the route you’re planning on taking, hiring a charter bus is a great idea if you plan on travelling with a large group. A lot of people don’t realize that charter buses are for more than just professional basketball teams or corporate retreat events. As long as your group is large enough, anyone can arrange a charter bus service.
But what’s the point, since there are so many forms of transportation available? Why not all caravan in your own cars to get from point A to point B, or better yet take Ubers? Well there are tons of reasons why hiring a NYC, San Francisco, or Atlanta charter bus company is the way to go.
It’s better for the environment
This might come as a shock to some people. Charter buses are MASSIVE, so how can they possibly be a good option for the environment? Even with the higher-than-average gas consumption, taking ONE charter bus is better for the environment than taking 10 cars. Even if some of your buddies are driving Prius hybrid cars, this is still the case.
The same goes for flying. Opting for a charter bus instead of hopping on a plane is much more eco-friendly (a plane uses a TON of jet fuel). And the best part is you won’t have to wait in long security lines or deal with the hassles of the airport.
You won’t have to worry about navigation
Dealing with navigation is the responsibility of the driver. This is especially helpful if you are heading to an area that you’re unfamiliar with. You won’t have to deal with heavy traffic, confusing one-way streets, or winding country roads. Your charter bus driver will take care of all of that so you can just kick back and relax.
Charter buses are extremely comfortable
Speaking of kicking back and relaxing, that is more than possible on a bus designed for maximum comfort, which a charter bus is. These buses are designed for long cross-country trips, so comfort is a main concern. The seats are much larger than the seats you would find on an airline and they recline back farther.
Most buses also give you entertainment options. The newer buses have individual TV and DVD players at each seat, but even if you don’t have that option there will be larger TVs spread throughout the bus.
Everything will be organized for you
You won’t have to stress about organizing pick up points, lunch breaks, and bathroom stops. Just like navigation, organizing every aspect of the trip is all taken care of. Just let the charter bus company no ahead of time if you have any special requests or needs; they’ll see to it that you’re comfortable.
Top companies provide safe and reliable drivers
Reputable companies require their drivers to undergo a background check and series of driving tests. These drivers have plenty of experience on the road, even with driving huge vehicles like buses. You’ll be safe in their hands.
