Group Planner: Football Game Transportation by Bus


It doesn’t matter if you like college or pro football. It doesn’t matter if you like SEC over Big 12, or NFC over AFC. We would even offer that the brats over burgers decision is second to decide how you get to the game.

There are several key factors to consider, but two “S’” top the list when planning for any group trip to the big game.

Safety

Safety is, of course, the ultimate game-changer, which is why the keys will be managed by a certified bus operator. This leaves you and your guests free to make beverage choices appropriately (and responsibly!).

By hiring a charter bus, you can leave the driving to someone else, ensuring that everyone gets to and from the game safely. Bus operators that allow alcohol on board will have a checkmark under “ALCH” within their profile on BusRates.com. Plus, you can ensure the bus operator you are interested in is authorized, compliant and safe with the BusRates.com Operator Authority Guide.

Style

Now that the serious point is addressed, let’s talk the second “S,” otherwise known as style. You can check out all the charter bus rental options here, but we have a couple of options that may suit your group.

The limo or party bus will get the pre-game festivities rolling before you leave the parking lot. The limo bus features leather perimeter seating and can even have an onboard attendant to serve drinks.

For events like the World’s Largest Cocktail Party at the Florida/Georgia game or longer road trips, your group may be interested in the day coach with more of a lounge feel, featuring a leather couch and chairs along with a kitchen area and private bathroom.

If you’re looking to bring influence to the game with a large number of fans, then you might want to look at a charter bus or minibus. A charter bus can seat more than 55 guests, while a minibus can accommodate smaller groups of ten to 36.

To help pregame, consider running team highlights on the DVD/TV system, run team trivia games on the way to the game and, of course, play the team fight song. Now that we’re less than 50-days from kickoff, get on BusRates.com and start your game day planning now!
