What options do we have when choosing the type of charter bus?
Because we know the importance the right bus can have on the overall success of your outing, we’ll work hard to make certain you have choices. For small-to-medium-sized groups, we typically recommend the minibus, with options that seat anywhere from 24 to 35 and sufficient space for your personal items. If you’re traveling with a larger group, you’ll want a full-sized charter bus, with accommodations for up to 57 people. See our fleet page to learn more.
What features can we expect on the charter bus?
All of our charter bus rentals (other than some school bus rentals) come with high-back bucket seats, climate control, a great sound system and plenty of room for personal items. Other popular amenities, such as Wifi, DVD players and monitors, charging ports for your devices, P.A. systems, hardwood floors and leather seats, may also be available at an additional charge. We can also find ADA-compliant buses for your group.
Are we permitted to bring and consume alcoholic beverages on the charter bus?
Yes, provided you obtain approval from US Coachways before your trip begins. Your driver will always have the right to terminate or suspend alcohol consumption, and you must comply with all local laws where your bus travels.
How old do I have to be to rent a charter bus from US Coachways?
You must be at least 21 years of age to sign a charter bus rental contract. We arrange trips for high school or college group, but ask that the rental agreement be signed by a legal adult.
