What features do your buses have?
Our Charter coaches hold up to 56 passengers. All the buses have reclining seats, climate control, restroom, individual reading lights and audio/visual systems. Most of our coaches also have individual 110 power outlets for small electronics. We do not currently offer WiFi.
We also have one 21-passenger mini-bus for local shuttle service. Call for pricing.
Can you carry school groups?
Yes! All of our buses and drivers are SPAB (School Pupil Activity Bus) certified to carry K-12 school groups. Our buses, maintenance facility, and records are inspected annually to maintain compliance with all CA Department of Transportation and Department of Education regulations.
What qualifications do your drivers have?
Our drivers are all experienced motorcoach operators. All of them undergo thorough background checks before hiring, periodic drug and alcohol screenings, and annual safety and driving retraining and recertification.
Can we charter a bus to go anywhere?
The buses are 45-feet long, so there are limits on where we can safely travel, but aside from that, we travel all over California and the western states.
Are your buses ADA accessible?
We have several buses in our fleet that can accommodate up to 2 wheelchairs on board, and have a lift that can be used to assist passengers who may have difficulty boarding by way of the stairs.
Do you allow food and drinks on the bus?
Certainly. We request an additional cleaning deposit, which will be refunded provided there is no damage or excess cleaning required.
Do you offer tours?
We currently do not offer any tours for individual participants, but if you have a group that would like to travel, we can assist you with lodging and destinations.
Will our sports team win if we hire you to take us to our game?
We absolutely guarantee that someone will win. Maybe tie.
