Chartering a bus is a great way to transport a large number of people so they do not have to drive separately or worry about parking. Here are some unusual situations that might benefit from hiring charter bus services.
1. Work Outings
The first situation that you want to consider is when you go on a work outing. You might decide to reward your employees for their hard work by taking them to a sporting event, concert, or some other large venue. This is a great way to build employee bonding time. However, you want to make sure that your reward for your employees does not actually cost them. In most cities, parking near a baseball stadium, football field, or concert hall can be very expensive because of the large number of people who need to park there. Your employees will have to dig into their own pockets to pay the high prices.
Another option is to give each of your employees the average parking price in the area. However, this could push you over budget for your employee reward and force you to choose a different, less rewarding activity.
Finally, you could hire a charter bus and pay the parking price for the single vehicle, while allowing everyone to be transported to the event together. You could have everyone meet at your place of business and park there, where's it's free, and then leave in the bus.
2. Wedding and Hotel Connections
Another situation that might benefit from hiring a charter bus is if you are having a wedding that is separate from the hotel in which the majority of your guests are staying. You can essentially use this bus as a shuttle, which will allow you to transport guests to and from the wedding or reception, ensuring that none of them get lost and that everyone has the chance to make it on time. Having a shuttle is also exceedingly helpful if you are serving alcohol at the party because it allows you to be able to relax and enjoy the party, rather than worry about whether everyone at the party who is drinking has a designated driver who will be able to get them home safely.
To use a charter bus as a shuttle, simply set up a meeting spot outside the reception and outside the hotel where the charter bus will be able to see you. Try to make sure that the shuttle waits at either location for at least five minutes in order to give people enough of a chance to get on.
