    Both of our drivers exceptionally professional, thoughtful, and diligent! They were on time for every leg of our 5 day trip, went above and beyond to help us when we made last minute changes to our schedule, and were in constant contact with me, as the group leader, throughout the trip.

BUS PRICING EXPLAINED

Coach bus pricing can become fairly complex, making the answer difficult to explain in one sentence. With a little of our help we can give you enough knowledge to understand how this cost is calculated.

Everyone's travel plan's are different and coach bus companies charges different rates. Unlike lodging or flights, coach bus pricing does not use a standardized rate due to the different cost components for each itinerary. Although, most coach bus companies calculate their quotes using the same rules. Bus companies use time, mileage, and other itinerary aspects to create a quote. Some examples of typical rates are:

  • Hourly Rate=$125 which requires a 5 hour minimum
  • Daily Rate=$1150 with additional driver change fee if the trip is non-stop
  • Live Mileage Rate=$3.50 per mile with passengers onboard
  • Deadhead Mileage Rate=$1.75 with no passengers onboard

Let's begin by explaining a single day local trip. Dinners, parties, weddings and similiar events are a common itinerary of this type. The base price is calculated by comparing the hourly rate multiplied by the length of time needed vs the total mileage multiplied by the mileage rate. The higher of the two prices is used as the base price. Then add the fuel surcharge, plus any required driver changes for the total trip price. Most local trips are priced by the hour as it would require excessive city driving to justify a mileage based price. The standard being a five hour minimum, making the lowest cost for the bus in the $625 range.

Out of town multi-day trips are usually little more complicated. Professional sporting events, family vacations, troop transportation, etc. are types of itineraries that fall into this group. First is to compare the duration of the trip in days vs the mileage of the trip and then take the greater of the two. Shorter distance trips that take many days will be priced using a day rate. Long distance weekend trips are priced using a mileage rate. An example would be a sports team needing to travel 500 miles for an out of town game. The team departs on Friday night and returns on Saturday evening. First calculating using the example rates of 1000 miles (500 each way) multiplied by $3.50 per mile for a total of $3500. And then comparing that total to 2 days multiplied by $1150/day=$2300. In which the larger of the two would be the base price of $3500. Again, you would need add any additional fuel surcharge and/or driver changes to this price to get the final cost.

The last thing to remember is coach bus drivers can only be on the road for 10 hours before requiring at least 8 consecutive hours off duty. Meaning long distance trips that do not wish to stop after 10 hours of driving will need a relief driver. For every relief driver needed a an additional fee will be added to the trip price.
