Have a Smooth Ride to Riverside on a Charter Bus

Visit the Inland Empire in the Comfort and Luxury of a Charter Bus

If you hear sunny Southern California calling, but you want to get away from the frenetic pace of L.A. and San Diego, enjoy a trip to Riverside. Just 60 miles east of Los Angeles, in what is known as the "Inland Empire," it's where California's world-famous citrus industry began, and still has manicured orange trees lining its downtown thoroughfares. It's a college town, with the diverse cultural offerings you'd expect to find. You won't have to go far, either, to take in mountains and other spectacular vistas.

Make your trip to Riverside easy, though, with a charter bus rental from US Coachways. Relax with friends and family while we handle the details.

Travel with Confidence with a Charter Bus Rental from US Coachways

Setting up a group outing is a demanding task, with countless details that need to be addressed. None, though, may be as important as your choice of transportation. If people have to spend a lot of time waiting for a ride, or feel cramped, it can take away much of their enthusiasm. Don't take unnecessary risks! With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you'll have:

  • A comfortable ride — You'll have a high-back bucket seat and more leg room than on any other mode of travel. There's no middle seat, either. The aisles are spacious, too, and there's no requirement that you stay buckled in your seat.
  • Stress-free travel — You won't have to navigate the busy streets of Riverside, look for parking, check the GPS or look at your watch. Your driver will handle all those tasks. There's no TSA security checkpoint when you get on the bus, so you can keep your shoes on and bring your favorite shampoo. You'll ride on the same luxury coach throughout your trip and you'll bring your bags with you—no concerns about missed connections or lost luggage. You won't have to put your phone on "bus mode," either—your devices won't interfere with navigational systems.
  • Transportation you can rely on — With most other forms of travel, delays and cancellations are commonplace. That's not the case with a charter bus. Your driver will have the tools and resources to anticipate traffic problems and find alternate routes to get you where you're going in a timely manner. In addition, our access to charter bus service providers across the country makes it easier for us to find a replacement coach, if necessary.
  • Unmatched flexibility — Can you think of any other type of travel that lets you decide when and where you'll leave, when you'll stop, how long you'll stay and when you'll go back home? If you need to leave early or want to stay a little longer, it's usually not a problem. In most instances, you can book an entire trip with little notice.
  • Safety and security — You can rest easy, knowing you have a highly skilled and trained professional driving the bus. Furthermore, because of the controlled access to the bus, you won't need to worry about unwanted guests—you and your personal items will be safe and secure.
  • A cost-effective way to travel — When you travel by charter bus, you share many of the costs of getting there and back with your fellow passengers. That makes charter bus travel consistently one of the most affordable ways to take a group anywhere.
  • More than just a way to get there — Your bus is an ideal venue for a meeting, as you'll have a captive audience. It's also a great place for a nap or a little quiet time in the midst of a busy trip.
  • Access to the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes — That can make a big difference in Southern California
  • The opportunity to help the environment — When you join others on a charter bus, you take a number of private vehicles off the roads, which can significantly lower carbon emissions.

Riverside—The Heart of the Inland Empire

Riverside is a city steeped in history, with dozens of sites on the National Historic Register and more than a hundred historical landmarks throughout town. Start at the California Citrus State Historic Park, where you can take a tour of grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime groves, learning the fascinating history behind California's rise to the international citrus king. You can stay at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, the largest example of the Mission Revival architectural style on the North American continent. The block-long structure has millions of dollars worth of antiques decorating the rooms and hallways of the property, and has a chapel with a gold altar. The Riverside Metropolitan Museum, located in the Mission Inn District, features Native American artifacts, as well as exhibits from the city's frontier days.

With the University of California Riverside boasting more than 20,000 students, Riverside offers a broad spectrum of cultural attractions. Take in a show at the Fox Performing Arts Center, a Depression-era masterpiece where the first public screening of Gone With The Wind took place. The Culver Center of the Arts offers a gallery and a film screening room, and the Riverside Art Museum has more than 20 exhibits, with a focus on social issues, diverse themes and different mediums. The California Museum of Photography, just off campus, has thousands of images from artists around the world. The campus also maintains the 39 acre Botanic Gardens, with more than 3,500 plant species from around the globe.

The diversity that's so much a part of the cultural community in Riverside can also be found in its cuisine. You'll find gastropubs, diners and delis, but you can also enjoy Bangladeshi, Brazilian, Mongolian, Nepali, Lebanese, Szechuan and Puerto Rican fare, among many other options. Riverside also boasts a number of craft breweries, many in the heart of the Mission Inn District.

The Right Bus—A Key Component in a Great Trip

Making the decision to travel by charter bus is just the first step in a successful outing. It's just as important to get a bus that's right for your group and your trip.

At US Coachways, we'll take the time to learn the specific details of your event—the number of people who will be traveling, where you're coming from and where you're going, what you'll need to bring or take home, and any other special needs. We'll work closely with our vast network of charter bus service providers to find the coach that best meets your needs.

If you're going to Riverside with a small-to-medium-sized group of friends or family, we recommend the mini-bus, with seating for anywhere from 24 to 35 passengers. For larger groups, the full-sized bus is ideal, accommodating up to 57 and offering an on-board bathroom.

All charter buses (other than a few school buses) come with plush, high-back bucket seats, a great stereo, climate control and ample storage space. You may also be able to get Wifi, DVD players and monitors, electrical outlets, public address systems, hardwood floors and leather seats, all for an additional charge. Multiple bus rentals are an option and ADA-accessible coaches are available.
