Please note that regulations allow our drivers to drive a maximum of ten (10) hours per day with fifteen (15) hours of duty time. Drivers are required to have a minimum of eight (8) hours of rest between shifts.
If your trip involves overnight travel, it is necessary to provide a non-smoking room for your driver. Many hotels offer a complimentary room when reserving for large groups, so don’t hesitate to inquire. Additionally, it’s worth asking if the hotel has bus parking available.
The charter party is responsible for the driver’s meals. It’s good to know that many fast food restaurants provide a complimentary meal to the driver.
Selecting the Right Vehicle:
Charter Bus: Our charter buses or motor coaches can accommodate 55 or 56 passengers. They are the most popular choice for both short and long-distance travel. Each motor coach is ideal for large group transportation, including sporting events, corporate outings, school trips, and cross-country tours. Most buses are equipped with PA systems, reclining seats, overhead storage, and restrooms. WiFi coming soon.
Mini Bus: The mini bus holds up to 38 passengers and is perfect for small to medium-sized groups requiring a versatile vehicle. Common uses include shuttles, private parties, airport transportation, and even long-distance travel. The unit features overhead compartments for luggage storage and a rear luggage area. Please note that there is no restroom available on board.
