Booking School Buses

School Buses are an economical alternative when luxury isn’t needed. In many cases, school bus rentals make more sense for large groups on short distances. Typically, these are reserved for local service traveling within a 150 mile radius. School bus rentals generally do not have restrooms, air conditioning or much luggage capacity, so weather conditions and trip length are important considerations. Don’t hesitate to rent school bus when you are needing something and tight on a budget but still need to have group transportation.

Real School Buses In Action

School buses generally consist of a 50-passenger bus body, designed and used primarily for the transportation of pupils to and from school facilities and/or school related activities & events.  School buses are also typically used as a cheaper cost alternative to a Charter Bus or MotorCoach as air conditioning, restrooms, and luggage bays are not standard features.

How To Charter a School Bus for Group Travel

Booking with BusBank

Group travel isn’t always easy. Any group coordinator who has dealt with lost luggage, delayed flights, and arranging transportation to and from an airport knows how much of a hassle air travel can be for groups of any size. Car rental and minivan rental can often be just as stressful and expensive if you have to rent multiple cars or pay additional fees for multiple drivers. This is why savvy group coordinators are turning to school bus rental, to reduce costs and stress! With fully licensed and insured professional drivers, school bus travel means you don’t have to worry about anything from pick-up to drop-off, and our expert account executives will work with you to find the perfect options for your group. Translation: once you begin booking with BusBank coordinating group travel becomes a hassle-free experience.

Where to Begin When Chartering a School Bus

Look to BusBank for a transportation solution to fit your budget.

The first thing you want to do when looking to arrange school bus transportation for your group is to get a solid headcount, decide which amenities are important to you, and come up with a rough idea of how far you need to travel. These factors will help you determine which vehicle you require. An overnight road trip with lots of passengers will naturally require a different vehicle than a shorter trip for a smaller group. From here you can get a rough estimate of your rental costs down below based on the type of vehicle you require. To get a more specific figure, and to help hone in on the perfect packages and options for your group, talk to one of our experts for a free quote. Our experts will go over the various features and amenities available at the various vehicle levels and find the vehicle that most suits your needs and your budget. You will also be walked through the entire booking process, which we make sure is simple and stress-free.

School Bus Charter Bus FAQs

Safety Measures & More

The short answer? Any large group that requires transportation. The really short answer? Anyone! From sports teams, to bridal parties, to corporate shuttles, and more, school buses are some of the most popular charter transportation options available. Whether you just need to get your employees from the airport to the convention center, get your team to the next town for a sporting event, or simply get guests to the wedding venue, school bus charter is your solution to comfortable, hassle-free transportation.

When you charter a vehicle, the driver is included, but that begs the question: do I have to pay the driver? With BusBank you don’t have to worry about paying an additional hourly rate for your driver. That cost is included within the cost of your charter package. While it is common and appreciated to tip the driver, you don’t have to worry about paying the driver yourself. For long-distance trips, you may need to provide a hotel room for the driver, however, many hotels will often include a complimentary room for the driver’s hotel stay for large groups. Additionally, BusBank can often help you secure a great rate on your group’s hotel stay. Other minor fees you may want to consider when planning your budget include parking permits, parking fees, and tolls.

With these options, you should be able to get a rough idea of which vehicle will work for your budget. Charter bus rental costs do vary based on peak seasons, location, and vehicle specifications, so don’t forget to contact us to talk through your exact seating capacity and feature needs and the vehicles that are available in your local market, and to get a free rental quote.

January, February, and July are typically the least expensive months for charter transportation thanks to harsh winter weather. To ensure the availability of your charter vehicle, we recommend booking your trip with BusBank at least 3-6 months in advance.

Our account executives will make the entire process stress-free and help you find a type of bus that meets your capacity needs and includes any amenities you require. We will provide you with a free quote to help you make the best decision for your needs and your budget! Once you have your quote, you can reserve your vehicle with a deposit. The sooner you book, the lower your deposit fee. Deposits are fully refundable up to 31 days prior to the departure date. If plans change, we’re here to work with you to accommodate those changes if enough notice is given. Ask your reservation specialist about quantity discounts and long-term contracts and other rental deals.
