4 things to know before you book a coach bus for a field trip transportation

Posted on: May 31st, 2016

Transportation is an important part of the education system. If you are taking students on a field trip or an educational or performance tour, chances are good you’ll find yourself on a charter bus or a coach bus for transportation either to your destination or to get around once you’ve arrived.

Coachman Luxury Transport knows that it is important that you have consistently high levels of safety, reliability, branding and modern environmentally friendly equipment while adventuring in these field trips. That is why our company offers you the possibility to explore a variety of attractions in the safest field trip.

Here are a few things to consider before booking and climbing aboard that will help your group make the most of your time on the road.


  • Bus size and day groups


Make sure you know the capacity of the bus you choose based on the number of students. Plan ahead for the best way to seat your group and when in need to transport up to 56 passengers at once make sure you make the right call. Choose wisely when it comes to safety and comfort, review all the vehicles in the fleet and ask all the questions.


  • Two times safety


Passengers: Talk to your students about on-board behaviors in advance to ensure safety, like staying seated, leaving the aisle clear. With limited sleep and adrenaline at work while on tour, even the most well-behaved kids can benefit from a review and sometimes need reminders from chaperones while on the road.

Vehicle and chauffeur: Coach buses, charter buses, all vehicles must go through a rigorous safety check before each trip, ensuring the highest level of quality control possible. In addition, each bus must be equipped with GPS and vehicle tracking, guaranteeing that you arrive at your destination safe and sound.

The chauffeurs need to possess the necessary DOT (Department of Transportation) requirements, including 19A and school bus certification, as well as being DMV, DOT and SED qualified. Vehicles must carry the maximum insurance allowed.


  • Electronics


A day of touring and photo taking can zap a phone battery quickly. While some buses only have outlets for recharging, make sure you book one that has more than that like large screen TVs, a great sound system. If you field trip is long you will need to make it interesting. Make the most of your time by watching movies related to your educational goals and the sights you’re visiting. Using bus time for official films of the sights you will visit also gives groups more time to enjoy the grounds instead of sitting in a theater when you arrive.


  • Make sure you book from a trusted company


A friendly, safety-minded driver, a bus that is inspected according to federal safety standards, and an insured charter bus company are guarantees when using Coachman Luxury Transport. Our company will provide you with fair prices, experienced drivers, and buses with the features that will best meet the needs of your tour group.  Coach bus transportation is a step up from the yellow buses we’re used to riding during field trips. Hopefully these planning tips will make it even better. Enjoy the ride!
