Be Sure to ask the right questions: Motorcoach charter pricing is based on the following factors:

  1. Motorcoach Size: Discuss what amenities your group would like. Be thorough about your groups needs: ADA accessible or not? Or does your group only need a school bus?
  2. Mileage: Charter pricing is based on mileage from when the motorcoach departs garage and returns to garage.
  3. Hours: Total Hours of usage from time motorcoach departs garage and returns to garage.

Don't forget to ask the following questions:

  1. Payments: Ask about policies for deposits, final payments, discounts, refunds, cancellations and fuel surcharges.
  2. Itineraries: Ask when detailed itinerary is needed for Charter Department. This document will insure your driver is thoroughly prepared to execute your journey as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
  3. Driver Accommodations: Ask if the driver's room is include in the cost of the charter quote, or if the group is responsible for covering the driver's lodging.
  4. Video Equipment: Ask if DVD or VHS is used on your motorcoach. Educational videos or movies can help pass the hours. Sports teams can utilize the travel time to review game videos.
  5. When comparing quotes, make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. Not all motorcoach companies are created equal. Driver experience, equipment maintenance, and company stability are often overlooked but their value is of the utmost significance.

Important Safety & Transport Notice

It is especially important, when planning to travel by motorcoach throughout North America, to choose a United States Department of Defense (U.S. DOD) safety-certified passenger transport (Motorcoach) company.

Why? Because the DOD demands a far more comprehensive list of safety and quality standard of operating requirements to be met by its list of approved passenger transport entities than of those passenger transport companies, which are not DOD safety-certified.

An independent, licensed safety and quality inspector must routinely audit all DOD safety-certified passenger transport companies.

The DOD is currently the only measurable safety and quality standardization process of its kind; and only those passenger transport companies that are DOD safety-certified are allowed to transport military personnel.

DOD safety-certification standards are designed to provide all passengers with the most enjoyable and safest journey possible.

The U.S. DOD Safety Certification Standards ensure:

  • Trailways drivers are fully uniformed.
  • Trailways is formally committed to persistent training and standardized operating procedures, which aim to ensure safety and quality training procedures are present at all times.
  • Trailways motorcoach company's vehicle safety maintenance system and maintenance records are subject to sever scrutiny as part of the quality assurance scheme.
  • There is an internal system in place, which includes documented checks to ensure that Trailways DOD safety-certified vehicles are safe, reliable, and presentable at all times.
  • Trailways has a standardized, 24-hour Emergency Help-Line procedure in place.
  • In the event of a vehicle shortfall either through defect or over commitment, substituted Trailways vehicles will meet the same high standards as an originally reserved vehicle.
  • A clean, safe and professional environment consistent with all health and safety regulations provided by Trailways at all times.
  • In the unlikely event of a problem, every Trailways motorcoach company has a dedicated department or staff-official willing and able to manage issues quickly and efficiently.

REMEMBER: Only the DOD can provide objective, independent evidence that the North American-based passenger transport carrier maintains the highest possible safety and quality standards offered in motorcoach travel. Therefore, every time you travel by motorcoach, it is important to ensure you are traveling aboard a DOD safety-certified motorcoach company!
