When planning a field trip for students in the Washington, D.C. area, it’s important that you book the safest, most efficient mode of transportation available for them. Traditionally, schools have chosen to book the standard yellow school bus as their primary transit method, but thanks to organizations like Ally Bus, there are better options available.
Ally Bus is a charter bus, minibus, and luxury coach rental provider that services multiple cities throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Booking motorcoaches that vary in size from 18-passenger minibuses to 56-passenger charter buses, Ally Bus is able to accommodate school groups of every size. Ally Bus has handled transportation for hundreds of schools in the region, with teachers frequently stating that a private motorcoach provides a far better transportation experience than a school bus.
The most common reasons educational institutions prefer a private coach over a traditional school bus include:
Ally Bus knows how important it is for a student’s parents to know that their children are in good hands, which is why Ally Bus goes to great lengths to ensure they’re safe during every trip. Buses booked through Ally Bus are inspected thoroughly before every trip, and only the most experienced, professional drivers are contracted to operate them. Buses provided by Ally Bus are also fitted with premium safety features such as steel-cage construction and dual rear wheels, which minimize the risk of injury when on the road.
Private motorcoaches come equipped with an array of amenities that most school buses lack. While a traditional school bus may only feature minimal air conditioning, AM/FM radio, and overhead storage bins, charter buses can be feature restrooms, DVD players, flat-screen TVs, luggage bays, plush, reclining seats, and power outlets.
Charter buses and minibuses are able to seat more passengers than the typical school bus. The largest school buses have 22 to 24 seats (fitting two passengers per seat), which accommodates up to 48 students total. A standard charter bus seats 56 people individually, which means you’re not only able to fit more students, but also able to provide each student with their own individual seat.
Ally Bus has no limit on the amount of buses it can provide for a school field trip. While smaller schools may struggle to find enough buses to accommodate every student from several large classes, Ally Bus is able to quickly find however many buses you need for the situation.
