Charter bus companies offer a variety of services to customers, and there are several advantages in hiring a charter bus company to take care of your travel plans. Motorcoach transportation is cost-effective, comfortable, versatile, and eliminates the hassles of driving. Services range anywhere from daily scheduled routes, to commuter services, to charter trips. Many companies offer more than one type of service for the convenience of travelers. Depending on your starting point, end destination, and how many people you have traveling in your group (maybe it’s just yourself), you might find some more helpful than others.

Here is a quick run-through of some services to ask your local bus company for more information:

One of the most common services available is by charter. Seating on charter buses ranges from 36 to 61 people. You will often find restrooms, air conditioning, and DVD players on charter buses. Other common amenities include Wi-Fi and power outlets. Charter services are mostly used for longer trips and group events because they can transport so many people.

Scheduled Routes
Scheduled routes are another common service offered by many companies. This type of service operates under a set timetable. Popular due to their affordability and convenience, scheduled services are offered for all kinds of trips, from daily commutes to weekend getaways.

Shuttle Service
Many charter companies also offer shuttle services. Shuttle service is a great way to get a group of people back and forth from one specific point to another. Shuttles usually run at regular intervals, and are commonly used for events such as concerts, sporting events, fairs, and festivals. Shuttle services are also used in a corporate context, transporting groups between different venues at conferences and conventions. You may see a shuttle service offered at weddings, transporting guests from the hotel, to the ceremony, to the reception. Retailers have even begun using shuttles to bring more customers to their front door. If you are worried about being on a time crunch, heavy traffic, or difficulty finding parking, consider hiring a shuttle service for your event.

Commuter Service
Similar to shuttle services, you may also find commuter service offered by motorcoach companies near you. Commuter buses transport commuters between point A and point B. This type of service is especially useful for those who do not have parking available at their destination. Many companies offer point to point service as long as the location is within their service area.

Airport Transfers
Some charter companies offer airport transfers. This type of service allows you to be picked up at a location near you, reliably connecting you to the specified airport. Due to a wide variety of departure and arrival times, multiple roundtrips are made daily for the customer’s convenience. Airport transfers are a great way to avoid the hassle of congestion and expensive overnight parking.

Other Services
A few more services offered by charter companies include special operations, sightseeing trips, packaged tours, and casino runs. Where do you go from here? Get a group together, book a trip, and leave the driving up to someone else. Sizes and layouts differ depending on the type of bus. If you’d rather travel solo, you can still purchase a ticket, sit back, and enjoy the ride.  

Whether it’s for event transportation, a trip to the airport, a daily commute, or a group expedition, charter bus services are an affordable and convenient way to get you to your destination and back safely. Avoid the hassle of dealing with traffic and parking, and you’ll even be helping out the environment.
