Steam powered buses of the 1830s in England were the early versions of regular intercity bus services. Choosing to charter a bus, these days, might require passengers to pay a flat fee or be charged a mileage based fee. Air conditioning, entertainment systems, reclining seats and restrooms are some of the common amenities offered by charter bus companies to keep their passengers comfortable. Currently, motorcoaches provide over 206 passenger miles per gallon of fuel compared to 92 passenger MPG for commuter rail, 44 passenger MPG for domestic air carrier, and 27 MPG for single passenger automobiles. The main things to consider when determining whether to hire a charter bus company or not will be the company safety rating, bus ownership, inspection status and insurance status.

Finding the best charter bus company should be relatively easy, as long as you know what you are looking for. Odds are that you are not planning on buying a brand new bus out of pocket so you will want to start researching local or regional charter bus rentals in order to get an idea of the variety that exists. Depending on what it is you plan on doing, be it a trip to New York City or take a tour of some nearby historical sights, you will want to find a charter bus company who can accommodate every need and requirement you have in mind. This is best done by contacting the charter bus company and having a detailed conversation on what it is you are looking for.

It would also be wise to, as opposed to simply contacting one charter bus company, to talk with multiple companies who offer charter bus rental services. This will be important because you will get an idea of what the typical services and amenities offered are as well as get an idea of cost, in order to compare value of a charter bus company against another. This can typically help determine which charter bus company you should explore your adventure with. Taking the time to the right amount of research can go a long, long way.
