Looking to tour colleges? Take your high schoolers to visit the University of Florida or Santa Fe College for a personalized campus experience. An educational day trip to Tampa, Ocala or Daytona Beach are just a short drive away too. When you choose Price4Limo for your Gainesville school transportation needs, you're guaranteed to find the perfect bus rental for your group and your trip! We provide charter bus rentals for school groups of all sizes, from an 18-passenger minibus for smaller student organizations to 56-passenger motorcoaches for larger field trips and sports teams.
We know how antsy students can get on longer bus rides. That's why charter buses can come prepared with amenities to keep kids entertained on the road (all available upon request). DVD players let you queue up movies, TV shows, or educational films to play on monitors throughout the cabin. Students and chaperones can connect to WiFi to surf the web or stream music and videos on personal devices. With outlets available throughout the cabins on some buses, passengers can juice up phones or tablets without worrying about running out of battery. Utilizing onboard entertainment options is a great way to keep students engaged, minimize squabbles, and allow teachers some much-needed "quiet time" during longer charter bus rides.
To reserve your bus rental and request specific amenities, give us a call at (866) 265-5479. Our team is available to help customize the perfect bus for your school's travel needs!
