What is BusRates.com?
BusRates.com is a consumer-facing website that enables prospective charter bus customers to search for companies interested in serving their transportation needs.
So, is it all about price?
Not really. While many consumers searching for a charter bus company initially searches for the range of prices, the experience usually turns out very different, once they see the array of companies, vehicles, and the assorted services available to them. Consumers initially select the companies that initially interest them and request proposals. Just like hotels, most consumers of charter bus services seldom select the “cheapest” but rather the best value for their needs and budget.
