How to Find the Best Bus Type for Your Group

When it comes to transporting your party guests, a limo or motor coach in Atlanta is the best way to get around town. Check out these tips from MTI Limousine and Shuttle services to help you select the right vehicle for your transportation needs.

Your Group

The first thing to consider before you rent a shuttle is who will be using it. How many people will be riding? Will they be riding together or separately? Do any of your guests require special accommodations like a wheelchair ramp or elevator? If you have small children in your group, special consideration is needed to determine their safety and comfort during the ride. Depending on the length of your ride, you should also consider providing drinks, snacks, and meals for your guests. This may require a vehicle with refrigeration and storage capabilities.

Your Event

Your event and ultimate destination will also play a role in the selection of your transportation service. For example, if you’re hosting a wedding or business conference, you’ll want to make sure your guests can make it from the airport to their hotel and the venue where the event will be held. Hailing a cab or renting a car from the airport or hotel can be stressful for guests, especially if they’re unfamiliar with the area. If everyone’s flying in at the same time, a shuttle bus should be able to accommodate several people and their luggage comfortably. If they’re coming in at different times, a fleet of several smaller cars can help transport your guest to their destination. For leisurely sightseeing tours, shuttles are also a great way to enjoy the sights together. For intimate affairs like weddings or anniversary celebrations, arrive at your destination in style in a full-service limousine.

Your Budget

It’s also important to take your event budget into consideration. For weddings and corporate events, designate at least 3-5% of your budget for transportation. You can save money by renting a single bus for taxi services instead of a fleet of cars. Also, keep in mind that stretch limos are usually more expensive than a luxury 4-door sedan. Instead of renting transportation services for the entire day, you can also save money by opting for pick-up and drop-off services only. Guests are brought to their destination and picked up when the event’s over; you aren’t charged an hourly wait fee while your guests are inside the venue.

Your Search

With all of this information in mind, you can now start your search for transportation services for your event. Start by checking online reviews on sites like Google, Yelp, and the Better Business Bureau. Always ask for the business license and insurance before signing the dotted line on any contract. Also, ask for the driving records of the drivers who’ll be transporting your guests. Armed with these tips, you are sure to find the best limo and motor coach services in Atlanta.
