Charter & Tour

What is the difference between ‘charter services’ and ‘tour services?'
Charter services should be used if you only needed a bus or trolley to complete your travel plans. The tour services section of this website allows you to make all of your group’s arrangements: hotel reservations, tours, etc., browse a list of sample group tours, or purchase individual seats on a scheduled tour.
What is a charter and how much do they cost?
A charter is a temporary lease of our vehicle and driver. When a group wants to take a trip somewhere they will reserve a bus, trolley or van for the trip that they have planned. This is a charter. Charter prices depend on the mileage, destination, days of charter service, and bus(s), trolley(s), van(s) usage. We invite you to submit a free quote request with no obligation. Chartering is generally a very economical mode of group travel.
Where do you have authority to travel?

We have the authority to travel across the entire United States and Canada. Our main operation is conducted within 50 miles of Philadelphia PA. 

What kind of vehicles are available for charters?

We operate a clean, meticulously maintained, and state-of-the-art fleet of minibuses, trolleys, transit buses, and vans.
When submitting a charter quote request you be able to choose from a list of the vehicles generally available in the area you selected.

Who drives your vehicles?
We take tremendous pride in our professional drivers. They are specifically trained to drive the vehicle you have chartered and must complete medical reviews, background checks, driving record checks, training and testing, drug and alcohol testing, and safety meetings.
How far ahead should I make arrangements?

It is never too soon to organize your charter. There are some times during the year when we are extremely busy, so book early! The weekends are usually the busiest with weddings, football games, holiday shopping, etc. so don’t hesitate to book a year in advance.

Where can I load my bus?
We can load your group anywhere that our vehicle can fit. Some residential streets are narrow, so please take that into consideration when planning your pick-up location. If you want to use a public parking lot, please call the manager of the establishment and get permission from them.
