Traditional yellow school buses certainly get the job done, but they aren't always the most comfortable ride, especially on longer trips. A charter bus rental offers amenities that will keep your students happy and entertained on the road, like reclining seats, air conditioning, and climate controls to stay cool in the Florida heat, overhead storage bins for backpacks, snacks, personal items, and more! Plus, having an onboard restroom on larger charter bus models means fewer stops for breaks, keeping your field trip on schedule. Not sure if a charter bus is right for you? Give our team a call at (866) 265-5479, and we'll go over your transportation options. We also have mini buses fitting 15-35 people groups.
