For many college students, regardless of whether they're in an urban or rural setting, college bus transportation Boston can prove to be a very important aspect of choosing where they study.  While some colleges partner with ride-sharing services, buy shuttles and extend bus lines, many of these options prove to be impractical or non-feasible in the long term and are ultimately discontinued.

Today, a large majority of students decide which campuses they will go to as well as their class timings, based off exactly how and when they can actually get there. This means transportation has a huge impact.

College Bus Transportation Boston Options

Let’s take a look at the different types of college transportation services options:

  • General Public Transport- This is one common transportation option that students use but it isn’t always the most convenient one. The services can sometimes be erratic, the buses not very comfortable and the timings not always suitable.
  • Car- Cars are a good choice for college students that have them, but this option has some challenges too. There are always very limited parking spaces for college students, and these are generally allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. This means not every student will have a guaranteed parking spot for their vehicle. In addition, the students would also need to pay for parking their cars on campus.
  • Cycling And Walking- While these are other modes, if the student is very far from the college location, it doesn’t become a suitable or convenient choice.

 

  • College Bus Transportation Boston- This is undeniably one of the most convenient, comfortable and cost-effective ways for students to get to college. In fact, we at Be Driven offer excellent college transportation services.

Charter Bus Pricing: Calculating The Cost http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/220-charter-bus-pricing http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/220-charter-bus-pricing charter bus pricing

If you've never planned an excursion in the past, using a charter bus service, you might be curious about how much it would cost you. We at Be Driven understand that you need to know exactly how much the service would cost you in order to determine how much you need to charge the people going on the charter trip. Here is some information that will help you calculate charter bus pricing:

To get a better idea of the per-person cost for a trip, you can divide the total cost of coach charter Boston by 85-90% of the total number of passengers that the coach can accommodate.

So if you charter a bus with a 56-passenger capacity for $900, divide that amount by 50 (which is approximately 90% of the total capacity of the bus). In this case, the total cost per person would work out to $18. If the number of passengers is more than 50, the per person cost would reduce. You also have the option to charge a higher amount per person and use the excess to purchase drinks and food for the trip as well.

Some Aspects To Keep In View

While conducting research on the different types of charter buses and the cost, it’s a good idea to take into account the destination, the duration you need the bus for, the age range of the people traveling, etc.:

  • For example, if you are opting for a coach charter Boston for professionals traveling for a convention, you might want to ensure that the bus has amenities such as Wi-Fi access. In this case, the type of amenities of the bus has would also have an impact on the charter bus pricing and this is something you need to keep in view.
  • If the bus is required for transporting a group of youngsters to a big game, you may want to ask the company whether they permit food and alcoholic beverages on board. While many companies permit food & drink in their coaches, they may ask for a fully-refundable deposit from you.

As one of the best transportation companies in Boston, we offer reliable and cost-efficient coach charter Boston for business or individual clients.

Reasons Why People Prefer Transportation Companies Over Public Transport http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/219-transportation-companies-in-boston http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/219-transportation-companies-in-boston transportation companies in Boston

Research indicates that people are more likely to discontinue using public transit if they experience delays which can be blamed on the transit agencies. They are far more likely to forgive the delays caused by mechanical failures, traffic conditions or emergencies. However, it’s also seen that people prefer transportation companies like Be Driven over public transport. Take a look at why:

Problems People Face While Traveling By Public Transport:

 

There are a number of common problems people that use public transport face, such as:

  • Delayed on board because of transit vehicles back up or problems downstream along the transit route downstream.
  • Experienced lengthy wait at the starting point.
  • Excessively long wait at the transfer stops.
  • Missed departure due to incorrect real-time information.
  • Delays caused by mechanical failure.
  • Ran to the stop, but the bus pulled away.
  • Full buses being held up for scheduling reasons
  • Large vehicles running less often rather than small vehicles running more often
  • Transit companies not keeping the passengers informed about what's happening in case of a delay.

 

How Transportation Companies In Boston Offer Better Services

In comparison, when you choose to travel with transportation companies in Boston, like us at Be Driven, you benefit in a number of ways:

  • Better scheduling
  • No transfer stops so that helps to avoid delays
  • Well-maintained vehicles significantly reduce the chances of mechanical failures and related delays
  • Professional operations and no long times at origin stop
  • Once the bus has a basic number of passengers the company will not hold back the bus and it will be on schedule.
  • More comfortable vehicles with better seats and other amenities.
  • Transportation companies in Boston are more responsible and focused on providing updates on delays in case of unavoidable circumstances such as traffic snarls or other emergencies as they are more accountable.

 

Opt For The Convenient And Reliable City Commute Solution

As you can see, there are some distinct reasons why people prefer transportation companies over public transport. While there are a large number of companies that offer these services, very few offer the perfect balance of reliability, professionalism, and cost-effectiveness that we do.

Our transportation solutions are unmatched on every count and it’s why numerous regular commuters within the city prefer our services over public transport that can be unreliable and uncomfortable too.

Factors That Determine the Cost of Your Bus Rentals http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/218-bus-rentals-boston http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/218-bus-rentals-boston bus rentals boston

When you are planning to book a bus, in addition to the type of bus and the amenities it has, you also want to know what the cost of the service will be. The cost of any charter bus rentals Boston is never a one-price-fits-all. Let’s take a look at the factors that determine the cost of your bus rental:

 

1.Distance and Duration

When you request for a quote, the transportation company will require information about the distance you want to travel as well as pick-up and drop-off times. They need your address too. You can change your trip itinerary any time. However, if you have already booked the trip, any change outside the plan you paid for, will be charged separately based on additional mileage.

2. What Time of The Year?

Private busing Boston rates are seasonal. When schools are in session, more buses are booked. This results in an increase in demand compared to the supply. During the lean season, demand is low and bus capacity utilization is low. These seasonal changes have an impact on the cost of your bus rentals, higher when the demand is high and lower when the demand dips. If you want to bag the most competitive rates, book your bus rental well in advance to benefit from these variations.

  1. 3. The Starting Point Matters

When it comes to paying for bus rental Boston, two things matter – the city from which you start and the location of the bus company’s headquarters. You will pay more if these two are in different locations because you will be charged for the extra mileage the bus travels from the company headquarters to your location. Some service providers take advantage of the shortage of supply in the starting location and charge a premium.

  1. 4. Additional Fees

When you get a quote for your travel itinerary, check for the fee inclusions & exclusions in the quote. As practices vary, some bus service providers do not include fees for toll, parking etc. that need to be paid on your travel route. Some miscellaneous expenses on drivers and tips need to be included in travel expenses.

Top Benefits of Commuter Shuttles Services http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/217-commuter-shuttles-services http://www.bedriven.com/blog/item/217-commuter-shuttles-services commuter shuttles services

Currently, there are thousands of shuttle buses operating for various charter shuttle services in the U.S. whether it be for discovering the city, finding the best way to get to the airport or improving the daily commute experience to the office, there are a number of benefits to opting for charter shuttle services like the ones that we at Be Driven offer:

  1. 1. Increases Employee Productivity

 

You will be surprised to see a sudden spurt in employee productivity when you arrange regular shuttle ride services. Regardless of the commute distance, the opportunity to travel in a comfortable shuttle gives them the breather they need to get ready for their day at work. It just does away with the need to use their time at the office to relax. Employees enter the office energized to focus on work ahead. Some studies suggest that shuttles can be useful in reducing the stress experienced due to daily traffic snarls and obstacles.

  1. 2. Eco-Friendly

Shuttle services are also an environment-friendly transport option. When employees use a shuttle rather than drive to work, it significantly reduces emissions. This goes a long way in reducing the carbon footprint and is a ‘green’ transport option. It also takes many cars off the road making the air cleaner for everyone traveling to work.

When single car usage is replaced by shuttle services, it instantly results in saving millions of vehicle miles and gallons of gas every day. As a larger number of companies switch to shuttle services, the better it is for the environment.

  1. 3. Bolsters Company Reputation

 

What makes a company successful? Not high revenues alone! Companies that have sustained their growth and reputation over time also ensure a conducive workplace culture and focus on employee satisfaction. The availability of shuttles to get to work is an attractive perk which adds to the reputation of your company. Your prospective employees view it as a workplace where they are cared for. The company too benefits by attracting highly skilled people.

As one of the best transportation companies in Boston, we offer reliable and cost-efficient charter shuttle services to businesses of all shapes and sizes.
