Learning the Difference: Coach vs. Bus

Coaches and buses are some of the most popular modes group of transport in Boston. They’re comfortable, affordable, and ensure the entire group stays together and reaches the destination on time. At Be Driven, we’ve noticed that many of our clients aren’t aware of the difference between coaches and buses. Here’s a brief description of both of these vehicles and related services.

Type of Services

Buses tend to run of schedule and have specific pickup and drop off times. They also have specific pickup and drop off locations so you need to travel to that location in order to use the bus services. Coach buses in Boston, on the other hand, are more flexible and can be chartered for long-distances. You can choose a specific pick-up or drop off time and location when you hire coaches. They’re a more luxurious form of travel.


Buses are ideal for short-distance travel or daily commute. They have comfortable seats but won’t provide enough support for long-distance travel. These vehicles are often used to carry people to schools, colleges, or to work. Coaches are designed for long-distance travel and the seats are much more comfortable. You can recline them and catch a nap for several hours without straining your body. You should hire coaches if you intend to travel to different states or expect to be on the road for several hours or days at a time.

Level of Comfort

Both buses and coach buses in Boston offer the desired level of comfort for the purpose they serve. Over short-distances, buses are quite comfortable and safe. You don’t have to worry about driving yourself and can simply relax in your seat or get some work done. Coaches have a number of amenities that make long-distance travel very comfortable and these include:

  • Air conditioners or heaters.
  • Wireless internet access.
  • Entertainment systems.
  • Reclining seats.
  • Extra luggage space.

As you can see, there’s a clear difference between coaches and buses so you should consider your requirements carefully before you decide which vehicle you will hire. Traveling through coaches will be slightly more expensive because of the advantages they offer, but the expense is worth it.
