Can I drink alcohol on my charter bus?

Many of our transportation partners allow passengers 21 and older to drink onboard.

However, if you’re booking a shuttle for a bachelorette party or a night out, let our team know ahead of time if you plan to drink onboard your bus.


Can I drive my charter bus?

No. Every charter bus in our network will come with a professional driver. Even if you have a CDL license, you will not be allowed to drive your charter bus.


Do I need to pay for my driver's food?

Your driver can cover their own food and refreshments. Though, if you're bringing food onboard your bus, your driver will surely appreciate being offered snacks and water.


Do I need to pay for my driver’s lodging?

Groups planning multi-day trips must provide lodging arrangements for their driver. By law, charter bus drivers are required to rest for at least 8 hours for every 10 hours of driving or 15 hours of non-driving time. If you’re booking a hotel room block for your group, reserve an additional room for your driver to ensure they’re well-rested for the road.
