The Many Benefits of a Charter Bus Rental
When you're taking a group anywhere, there are lots of details to handle, but none may be more important than deciding how you'll get there and back. If you have glitches in your transportation, it can put a damper on everything. With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you'll have:
- A dependable ride — Unlike other types of travel, charter buses rarely have delays or cancellations. Your driver has the tools and resources to anticipate potential roadway challenges and find alternate routes, and replacement coaches are typically not hard to find.
- An affordable mode of travel — On a charter bus, you'll share many of the costs of travel with fellow passengers
- Safety and security — You'll have a highly skilled and trained professional driving the bus, minimizing the risk of an accident. In addition, because of the limited access to your coach, you'll be able to keep close tabs on who comes and goes—you and your personal items will be safe and secure.
- Unmatched flexibility — There's no other type of travel that affords you the control and flexibility you get with a charter bus. You tell us when and where you want us to pick you up, when you want to stop, how long you want to stay and when you want to leave. In most instances, you can make last-minute or real-time changes to your itinerary without a problem. We can also book an entire trip with short notice.
- Maximum comfort — The seats are big and there's lots of leg room. There's no middle seat, either! The aisles are wide and you can get up and stretch your legs at any time.
- Less stress — You won't have to check the GPS or your watch. No battling traffic or trying to find a parking space. Your driver will handle all those details. You'll ride on the same bus throughout your trip and your luggage will always be with you—no missed connections or lost bags. There's no TSA security checkpoint, either, and your devices won't interfere with navigational systems. You can stay online at all times.
- Less risk of getting stuck in traffic — On a charter bus, you'll have access to the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes
- More than just a way to get there — Use your bus for a group meeting, whether it's prepping employees, warming up the choir or talking strategy before a big game. Your bus is also a great place to get a little down time in the middle of a fun-filled trip to Tulsa.
- A positive impact on the environment — When you travel together on a charter bus, you reduce the number of private vehicles on the roads, lowering carbon emissions
Have a Terrific Trip to Tulsa
Bank of Oklahoma Center Tulsa, Oklahoma,
Built on the rich oil fields in eastern Oklahoma, Tulsa has long enjoyed a rich cultural heritage. Nowadays, it's a vibrant city with a burgeoning arts community, lots of live music venues, great locally owned restaurants and a number of unique attractions:
- The art museums — The Gilcrease, founded in 1943, contains the collection of Thomas Gilcrease, a Creek Indian who struck oil in the early days of the boom. The museums holds some 10,000 works of art, more than 100,000 rare books and manuscripts and over 250,000 Native American artifacts, including the only known surviving certified copy of the Declaration of Independence. The Philbrook Museum of Art, housed in a 1920s vintage villa, has nine exhibits of art from around the world, and has been named as one of the top 50 art museums in the country. It includes works by Picasso, Rodin and Georgia O'Keeffe, and also boasts formal gardens.
- The music — Legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie was born not far from Tulsa and the city is home to the Woody Guthrie Center, where you can learn about his music and his life as a champion for equality and social justice. The city now boasts a wide range of live music venues, from cozy clubs and bars to the Mabee Center and the Brady Theater. Visit Cain's Ballroom, the "headquarters" of Western Swing legends Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys back in the 1930s.The Tulsa Symphony ant Tulsa Opera both perform at Chapman Music Hall at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. There's also a Light Opera, a Youth Symphony and the nationally renowned Tulsa Ballet.
- The birthplace of Route 66 — Tulsa native Cyrus Avery proposed a Chicago to Los Angeles highway in the 1920s and founded the US 66 Highway Association, earning him the honorary title of the "Father of Route 66." The famed roadway runs right through Tulsa, still adorned with bright neon lights, classic service stations, vintage signs and historic diners. Locals insist that the best Mexican food on all of Route 66 can be found at El Rancho Grande, operating continuously since 1953.
- Hearty food — The culinary scene in Tulsa revolves around Oklahoma's internationally renowned beef industry. The barbeque here is truly unique, as it may be smoked with pecan, oak, mesquite, maple or hickory, and has both African-American and Native American influences. While you're here, try some "Oklahoma tenderloin," the locals' slang for hickory-smoked bologna. You'll find a nearly endless array of steakhouses, but the Lebanese steakhouses are a specialty of Tulsa. You can enjoy your ribeye with tabbouleh, rice pilaf and hummus, cooked with Middle Eastern spices. Chili and Coney Island hot dogs are a staple in Tulsa—Ike's Chili Parlor has been serving them for more than 100 years.
- Great shopping — One of the best places to satisfy your retail passions is Utica Square, the city's oldest shopping center. It's a mixture of indoor and outdoor venues, with world class vendors, one-of-a-kind boutiques and local icon Miss Jackson's. For the mega-shopping experience, head over to Woodland Hills Mall or the Tulsa Promenade. For vintage and one-off local emporiums, visit the Deco District or the Brady Arts District.
