The availability of charter vehicles and buses for disaster relief is dependent on many factors, including the time of year and the nature of the disaster. The summer months (when school is in session) are typically the busiest. Click here to find out more about BusBank charter pricing.

How Do Charter Buses Work with FEMA During Natural Disasters?

Charter buses work with FEMA before, during, and after a natural disaster strikes to prevent injury and help save lives. The Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2007 authorized the use of federal funds to develop catastrophic mass evacuation plans.

State authorities can coordinate with other nearby state authorities along with federal and local governments to determine destinations for evacuees. They also coordinate the flow of transportation assets companies in the private sector, like BusBank, to assist in the implementation of mass evacuations and save people from catastrophes, whether they be natural or manmade.
