Most Common Reasons to Rent a Charter Bus

Why Hire a Charter Bus - phoenix charter busAZ Limo Company is a versatile one. The fleet ranges from simple sedans (with or without a chauffeur) to a massive charter bus. If you’re wondering ‘Well, who on Earth would rent a charter bus in Phoenix?’ here are the most common occasions these lumbering monsters are great for.

First of all, to be on the same page, a charter bus (or a coach) is the biggest commercially available road vehicle available in the USA. It usually has 55 passenger seats. Forget the memories of uncomfortable, cramped, stuffy and noisy nightmares on wheels, though. The new generations of charter buses are well equipped with various amenities formerly available only on smaller-scale vehicles. Some of those are the now ubiquitous air-conditioning, LCD screens able to play DVDs, tinted windows for privacy, as well as Wi-Fi access. Furthermore, these large vehicles offer what no other transport options can- sufficient luggage storage. In fact, the whole lower deck of the bus is dedicated to this task alone. So, with that in mind, who would need a whole charter bus to rent?

Sports teams

Sports teams, whether baseball, basketball or football, tend to consist of a lot of people. You’ve got the players themselves, the coaches and the supporting crew of medics, water carriers and others. That can tally up to a lot of people. In order to get from one town to the next, you’d need a lot of cars. And that’s all not accounting for all the equipment necessary (think of the football player’s uniform). Now, I am sure that NFL or NBA teams are wealthy enough to have their own transport all across the USA, but what about college teams, or the little leagues? This is one of those situations where a charter bus is ideal for the job.

Major weddings outside town

Some people go to great lengths to make their wedding as memorable as possible. Sometimes literally to great lengths, as their ideal place might not be in their own place of residence (or possibly somewhere far from any town or city). Inviting people to some remote area and not offering to give them a ride there may be construed as rude (or at least inconsiderate). With larger groups, the ideal solution is to rent a charter bus. Not only do people not need to struggle to find the place, thy can also be more relaxed, as they do not need to drive home.

Corporate retreat

Depending on the size of the company, a charter bus might be ideal for a team building retreat. The team building can be initiated while on the bus, by assigning seats and other team building exercises. Similarly to the wedding scenario from above, people might be more relaxed without the need to drive out themselves. And if the boss is on the bus as well, it adds to the feeling of togetherness and relative equality.

Following your sports team

Every major city in the USA has a sports team they are proud of. New York has the Giants and the Knicks, Dallas has the Cowboys, and Phoenix has the Suns. While many of us enjoy casually catching a game, or reverently following each match, there are those who are so dedicated to their sports team that they would follow them all across the country. And when there are enough of them, the charter bus seems like the only option. Well, at least we all know what the main topic on those road trips is.

Ski Resorts

Hey, who says that a company retreat must be in the summer, or somewhere warm? If your company has avid skiers/boarders, this may be ideal for you pack the crew into a charter bus in Phoenix, and head out to one of the many mountains in the vicinity. And I’m sure those of your employees who can’t ski will want to learn it.  And if not, there are tons of other things to do on a mountain, like walking, nature watching, or even just sitting in the resort, sipping hot cocoa, watching through the window and chatting with the colleagues.

The Lakeside Campsites

The true nature lover will be able to appreciate the beauty of the lakes in the surroundings of Phoenix. Campsites are sprawled all over those beautiful shores. I’m positive you can find the one that captivates you and is ideal for your collective rest.  Just make sure you follow all the rules set by the campsite.  Some of these lakes are actually parts of nature preserves and may not allow campfires/fishing or other activities you had in mind. Just make sure you check with the management of the campsite beforehand to avoid any awkwardness afterwards.

Vegas, Baby

It’s a relatively short drive from Phoenix to Las Vegas.  If you charter a bus in Phoenix after lunch, you can be partying in Sin City by nightfall. Let’s face it, this idea with not appeal to everyone. However, if your company consists mostly of young people, chances are partying is their way of unwinding.  And the boss who takes you to Vegas to party sounds like a pretty solid guy in my book.

White Water Rafting

This may be the single most common company trip ever. It combines the relaxation of a camping trip with the beauty and the excitement of visiting a nature park. There are many rafting options, but make sure your employees are OK with a bit of tumbling and getting wet. Ideal for adrenaline junkies as well as those who just want to shake off the monotony of the work week. A charter bus from Phoenix can get you to at least a dozen rafting locations, so if this is your thing, hesitate no more.
