Charter Bus Models and Amenities

What types of buses can I book in Atlanta?

We can pair you with a variety of bus types, some of the most common being a 56-passenger charter bus or a 20- or 25-passenger minibus. If you think your group might need a bus that we don’t include on our site, just let us know when you call to book.

 

What amenities can I get on my bus?

All buses will have air conditioning to beat the Georgia heat, reclining seats to help you relax, and some overhead storage areas to help minimize clutter.

You can also request additional amenities like WiFi, power outlets, and PA systems when you call to book your bus.

Large motorcoaches will have some extra amenities like onboard restrooms, extra storage bays for luggage, and sometimes a little bit more legroom.

For more information, see our main buses page.

 

Can I book a bus with ADA accessibility features?

Yes, you can! Let your reservation specialist know that you need additional accommodations, and we can provide you with an ADA-compliant bus at no additional charge.

 

Charter Bus Drivers

I have a CDL, so can I drive my own bus?

Unfortunately, we do not permit customers to drive their own buses. Each charter bus rental comes with a professional and experienced driver to ensure your group’s safety.

 

Does each bus come with a driver?

Yes, each charter bus will be operated by a professional bus driver. The cost of a bus driver is already included in your quote.

 

Should I tip my bus driver?

Tipping is always at your discretion, but we do recommend tipping your driver 5-10% of the total cost of your bus rental to thank them for a job well done.

 

How often do drivers need to stop for breaks?

Regular pit stops on the road will be arranged between you and your driver en route.

Drivers must have at least an 8-hour break after driving for 10 consecutive hours or remaining on duty for 15 consecutive hours, so we recommend planning stops accordingly if you’re traveling a particularly long distance.

 

Do I need to provide food for my bus driver?

No. Drivers will cover their own food and drinks during your trip.

 

Do I need to provide lodging for my bus driver?

Yes. If your trip spans multiple days, you’ll need to make sure that you’ve arranged for a hotel room for your driver so that they can rest up and drive safely.

 

Can my driver provide additional meet-and-greet services?

Yes, but your reservation specialist will need to make extra arrangements. Just make sure you let us know that this is something you’d like to arrange when you call to book!

 

Traveling in Atlanta with a Charter Bus

Where can Atlanta Charter Bus Company take me?

While we mainly operate in Atlanta, we can take you to Atlanta suburbs, other Georgia cities like Savannah or Augusta, or out of state if you’re planning a long road trip. If it’s in the contiguous United States, we can get you there.

 

Who can rent a charter bus?

Sports teams heading to a tournament, businesses hosting a corporate conference, schools planning a field trip, brides- and grooms-to-be planning wedding pickups and dropoffs, friends planning a night out, and many more! If you have a group in need of transportation, we’ve got you.

 

Can we drink and eat on our bus?

Yes—just let your reservation specialist know that you’d like to bring food and drink on the bus.

If a mess is left behind, you may be subject to an additional cleaning charge.

 

Can we bring alcohol on our bus?

Passengers who are 21 years of age or older may bring alcohol onto the bus. If you’d like to drink on your bus, let your reservation specialist know so that all proper protocols can be in place for a safe trip.

 

Where can our charter bus park?

Charter bus parking availability will vary greatly depending on where you’re going. We recommend looking for large, open surface lots with lots of space or parallel street parking.

In Atlanta, the Georgia World Congress Center Marshalling Yard is often one of the easiest lots for buses to get into and out of. You can also refer to our blog for charter bus parking tips at historic sites and arts & culture destinations.

Your bus driver can also drop you off at a venue, wait at your hotel, and return to pick you up when you’re ready.

If you’re unsure, we always recommend calling a venue before your trip to ask where the best bus parking area is. We are not responsible for finding bus parking.

 

Can I change my itinerary after I’ve booked a charter bus?

We’ll always work to accommodate changes, but it will become more difficult to edit your itinerary as your trip gets closer. If you need to make a change, please call your reservation specialist as soon as possible.

 

What if I need to cancel my trip?

If you cancel more than 14 days before your start date, you won’t need to pay for your full balance; however, we won’t be able to return your 10% deposit.

If you cancel fewer than 14 days before your start date, we won’t be able to provide a refund for your trip, and you will still be responsible for paying in full.
