About the coach bus

The coach bus, sometimes called the motor coach, is more comfortable than your average car or school bus. Amenities like audio-visual equipment, wifi, and air conditioning can be included in your coach bus rental—all adding up to create one very pleasant ride.

What do people typically rent a coach bus for?

Typically used for long-distance travel, coach buses tend to be chartered by large groups that need transportation from one city to another. We’ve seen popular coach bus rentals made by sports teams to move coaches, players, and their entire support staff to out-of-town games, or even sports fans looking to rent a coach bus to attend tailgate parties for their favourite teams.


If you simply want to be more comfortable during your trip, renting a coach bus is also an excellent option, especially when you consider all the amenities that may not be available on other bus types. Companies often use coach bus charters in order to bring their employees to corporate retreats or conferences. With outlets on board and the possibility of adding WiFi, people are able to remain productive and stick to their routine, even while on the road!
