Charter Bus Travel Is Convenient, Efficient, and Affordable
The baseball team was excited.
The berth to the Conference tournament meant that they could actually travel on a charter bus. During regular season play, the team has to rely on the college vans, but conference play falls under a different budget. The charter bus service for the Conference meet means that there is plenty of room under the bus for all of the personal luggage and the athletic gear. This leaves the seats open for relaxing travel to and from the game. The fact that none of the coaches have to drive to and from the hotel and the stadium is also a welcome change. Getting dropped off curb side after a three hour rain delay means that the coaches can relax and rethink job strategy instead of navigating traffic in unfamiliar cities.
For some small Division III athletic teams, charter bus travel is a real bonus. After weeks of traveling to games on cramped college vans and small buses, charter bus travel seems like a major luxury. And while there are some schools that operate on limited budgets and do not get to take advantage of all the perks of charter bus travel, the reality is that having a professional driver who can drive through the night to get you home can actually pay for overnight hotel rooms for an entire team.
Did you know that motorcoaches account for 751 million passenger trips that are taken every year? From athletes to wedding parties, both charter buses and limos are a great way to transport your group to and from an event. From large tour groups to smaller groups of athletes traveling to a competition, find the right solution is always a balance of cost and convenience. Knowing that you are making an environmentally sound decision, however, is also a factor for many groups. Fortunately, each full motorcoach has the potential of removing 55 autos from the highway, reducing emissions and congestion, as well as cutting energy use. In fact, when compared to other forms of transportation, motorcoaches emit the least carbon dioxide per passenger mile.
