When you’re looking to take a group somewhere, one of your concerns is often the weather at your destination. An outing to Phoenix will put your mind at rest. It’s never really cold here and it only rains about one of every 12 days (about a quarter of the national average). You’ll find it pleasant here just about any time you come.
Phoenix is a big city, though, spread out over miles and miles. If you try to handle all the details of a group outing there on your own, you’ll spend most of your time checking the GPS, looking at your watch or trying to find a place to park. Make it easy on everyone, including yourself, with a charter bus from US Coachways. Relax with everyone else while we take care of all your ground transportation needs.

Yes. We believe that the selection of the right bus for your group and your trip is a key component to a successful outing, so we’ll provide you with options. If you’re going to Phoenix with a small-to-midsized group, we recommend the minibus, which comes with ample storage space and seating for 24 to 35 passengers.
