A Charter Bus to Bakersfield—Travel Like a Pro!
When you're organizing a group trip anywhere, there are lots of folks counting on you. One of the most important decisions you'll have to make—how you'll get there and back and how you'll get around the city when you're there. If you're late somewhere or you have other problems with ground transportation, it can have a negative impact on the whole trip. Choose a mode of transportation you can trust. With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you'll have:
- A high level of safety and security — Because the drivers are highly trained professionals, charter buses have one of the lowest accident rates of any form of travel. In addition, the single point of access makes it easy to keep an eye on who's coming and who's going, so you won't have uninvited guests. You and your personal items will be safe and secure.
- Unparalleled dependability — Delays and cancellations may be relatively commonplace with other modes of travel, but not with a charter bus. Your driver has the resources to anticipate traffic jams and find alternate routes to get you there on time. With our extensive national network of charter bus vendors, it's seldom a problem to find a replacement coach, should you have mechanical problems.
- Comfort, luxury and convenience — With the exception of some of the school buses, all charter buses have plush, high-back bucket seats and more leg room than any other form of travel. There's no middle seat, either. The aisles are wide and there's no seatbelt light—you can move about at your leisure.
- Stress-free travel — Don't worry about directions or getting to the venue on time. No need to look for a parking place or jockey through traffic. Your driver will handle all those responsibilities. Your job—relax with friends and family while we handle the details. You'll be on the same coach for the entire trip and you'll take your personal items with you. You won’t have to worry about missed connections or lost luggage. There's no security checkpoint for a charter bus, so you can keep your shoes on and bring your favorite shampoo. Your devices won't affect navigational systems, so you won't have to go on "bus mode." You can stay connected at all times.
- Flexibility you won't get anywhere else — You decide when you want to leave, where you want to be picked up, when and where you'll stop, how long you'll stay and when you'll head back home. In most situations, you can leave early or stay a while longer without much difficulty, and you can often book an entire excursion with short notice.
- A ride, a meeting room and more! — Your charter bus is more than just a way to get you to Bakersfield and back. It's an ideal setup for a group gathering, whether you're prepping employees for a business meeting, getting in a last minute rehearsal before a choir concert, or getting the whole family to sing happy birthday. Your coach can also be a quiet haven in the midst of a hectic trip.
- The opportunity to take advantage of the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, so you minimize the risk of getting caught in traffic.
- More travel for your money — On a charter bus, you'll share many of the costs of travel with your fellow passengers, making it consistently one of the most cost-effective forms of group travel.
- A positive impact on the environment — When you join others on a charter bus, you'll take a number of personal vehicles off the roads, which can lower carbon emissions.

There's Something for Everyone in Bakersfield
You'll find plenty to put a smile on any face in Bakersfield:
- Nightlife — Bakersfield has been known worldwide since just after World War II for the hard-edged country sound pioneered by Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. It's still going strong, with dozens of small venues offering live music almost every night, as well as big shows at the Spectrum Amphitheatre, the historic Fox Theater or the Robobank Arena.
- Eclectic dining — There's a big helping of Tex-Mex and Southwestern fare here, but plenty to satisfy any taste, including Peruvian, Pakistani, Burmese, Hawaiian, Basque, Szechuan, Turkish, Cajun and Creole. Bakersfield also has a burgeoning craft beer culture, with a number of small-batch brewers offering interesting libations.
- Museums — The Bakersfield Museum of Art has one of the largest permanent collections of California art, as well as regional artists. The California Living Museum, known affectionately to locals as the CALM, is the state's premier native zoo and garden, with more than 250 species of animals indigenous to California, as well as many endangered plants from the state. At the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History, you'll find fossils from around the planet, as well as Native American artifacts and a large display of petrified woods.
- Festivals — The residents of Bakersfield like to celebrate, with festivals nearly year-round, from the Scottish Gathering and Games in April and the Basque Festival in May to the Celtic Music Festival and the Greek Food Festival in October. Check the calendar before you come.
- Fun in the great outdoors — The nearby Kern River offers some of the best whitewater rafting in North America, with Class I through Class V excursions. Hike in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas or relax in one of the city's 59 public parks, or the eight regional parks throughout Kern County.
We'll Help You Find the Ideal Bus for You and Your Group

There's another important step, though—taking the time to make certain you have the right bus. When you make a reservation with US Coachways, we'll take the time to learn the details of your outing—how many people will be attending, how long you'll be on the road, what you'll need to bring with you or take home, and any other special needs of your group. Then we'll reach out to our vast network of charter bus service providers to find the vehicle that best meets your needs.
If you're visiting Bakersfield with a small-to-midsized entourage, check out the mini-bus. It comes in a number of different sizes, seating anywhere from 24 to 35 passengers.

All charter buses (except some school buses) have climate control, a great stereo and ample storage space. Premium amenities, such as Wifi, electrical outlets, DVD players and monitors, P.A. systems, hardwood floors and leather seats, may be possible for an extra fee. Multiple bus rentals are always an option and ADA-accessible coaches are available.
