Charter Bus Availability Limited This Summer

Motor coach travel is on the rebound this summer as the economy recovers. This is great for cities and towns across the country, as it brings people closer to the sights and sounds that North America has to offer. In recent months, The BusBank has received an increase in requests from customers looking for charter buses. In addition, we have heard from many of our bus operator partners that they are beginning to sell out for key travel weekends.

Some reasons for the decrease in charter bus availability:

  • Rising Gas Prices have made driving multiple cars less affordable than in the past. Gathering a group of friends to travel in a deluxe motor coach together becomes a very cost effective method of travel.
  • Airlines have “nickel and dimed” many customers with baggage fees, flight change costs and other charges that have made it a less affordable option. These charges are not present when chartering a bus.
  • Many motor coach operators have greatly reduced their fleet size or moved to doing more contract bus shuttle runs. This has lowered the number of buses available to customers.

All of these factors have added to making it important to book your charter bus earlier than past years. We want to ensure that we have the right equipment available to your group. If you have an upcoming trip, don’t hesitate toBook Now today!
