A Charter Bus—The Optimal Choice for Group Travel

There’s a lot of detail involved in a personal trip to NYC—it can be magnified exponentially when you’re taking a group there. Make the travel component easy by booking a charter bus to get you there, back and around the city. With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you’ll have:

  • Unequaled flexibility in your travel—There’s no other method of transportation that lets you decide when you’ll depart, how long you’ll be on the road, when you’ll stop, how long you’ll stay and when you return. With a charter bus, last-minute and real-time changes to your itinerary can often be accommodated, and entire trips arranged with short notice.
  • Transportation you can depend upon—With other forms of travel, delays and cancellations can be fairly frequent. Look at airline travel, where about 40% of travelers arrive late somewhere every day! With access to a vast network of vendors nationwide, we can usually find a replacement vehicle in a short period of time. In addition, your driver has access to the necessary resources to anticipate traffic problems and find alternate routes to get you there on time.
  • The height of comfort and luxury—The high-back reclining bucket seats are spacious, with more leg room than any other type of travel. There’s no middle seat, either, and you can stroll about the wide aisles at your leisure.
  • Stress-free travel—You won’t have to worry about traffic, finding your way around or securing a place to park. Your driver will handle all those matters. There’s no TSA line, so you won’t have to remove your shoes or throw out your toiletries. You’ll ride on the same bus and you’ll always take your luggage with you, so no worries about missed connections or lost bags. Your phone won’t have any impact on navigational systems, so you can stay connected at all times.
  • More than just a bus—Your coach is the perfect place for a group meeting, whether it’s to give advance instructions, prep employees or have a family celebration. You might also climb aboard a quiet bus for some down time in the middle of a hectic trip to New York City.
  • More travel for your dollar—On a charter bus, you’ll share many of the expenses of transportation. That makes charter bus rental consistently one of the most cost-effective ways to travel.
  • Less risk of getting stuck in traffic—You can take advantage of the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, a real bonus in New York City
  • A positive impact on the environment—When you share a charter bus with others, it takes a number of private vehicles off the roads, lowering carbon emissions.
