Things to Know Before You Charter a School Bus
School buses are great options for short and sweet transportation for larger groups. These no-frills vehicles are not designed for long-range comfort or over-the-road trips, but they serve as an efficient, affordable option for shuttling or traveling locally.
Our school bus listings feature buses in a range of different sizes to accommodate whatever size group of passengers you need to transport. While the details for each vehicle will vary by model and operator, you can expect to see the following features from each option:
- Seating range: 10-60 people
- Ideal for short distances
- Luggage/equipment storage is very limited.
While we do our best to ensure all of our listings are accurate and complete, we encourage you to check the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Safer System for company standing before booking your rental school bus.
