Long before you were taking the big yellow bus to school every day people were using a bus to get around every day. Regular intercity bus services by steam-powered buses were pioneered in England in the 1830s. Fast forward nearly 200 years and there are still many benefits to taking a coach bus.
Motorcoaches are one of the most affordable ways to travel today, be it alone or with a group. When people charter a bus, they may pay a flat fee or be charged a fee based on the mileage. A coach bus also offers plenty of comfort for the passengers. It is common for a coach bus to have air-conditioning, luxury seats and some even have on-board rest rooms.
Motorcoaches currently provide over 206 passenger miles per gallon of fuel compared to 92-passenger MPG for commuter rail, 44-passenger MPG for domestic air carrier, and 27 MPG for single passenger automobiles. There are other headaches they save the consumer from including driving and parking. Even if you car pool with four people to an event, this saves the driver money on gas and in several cases parking garage fees.
You can check with the Better Business Bureau whether a charter bus company has any pending complaints or not. The best charter bus companies will have a spotless record of complaints. The Better Business Bureau should also have an extensive list of companies who can cater to your needs.
If you are looking to your next family or school oriented event look into renting a coach bus. They will have all the luxury a passenger needs and offer the peace of mind of not worrying about driving and parking. A coach bus is the best way to get your next event.
