Frequently asked questions for spiritual groups

How many passengers can each bus types fit?

The coach bus fits the highest number of passengers, at 55. Most school buses can carry up to 47 passengers. Mini coaches and minibuses transport up to 31 and 21, respectively. The average sized sprinter van seats 12, although they can seat as many as 15 and as few as 8, depending on the model.

Where do Bus.com buses come from?

Our vast network of bus partners includes both large and small operators from across the United States and Canada. Relying on local operators allows for a shorter trip from the bus partner vehicle park to the site of the pick up, which results in a more efficient and cost-conscious service. Don’t worry — we fully vet all of our bus partners to ensure that their service is safe and professional.

Is it possible to rent a bus for multiple days?

Absolutely! Our vehicles are available for both short-distance and long-distance journeys.

Does Bus.com only rent out buses?

Aside from buses, we also rent a variety of passenger vans.

Does every rental come with a driver?

All of our bus rentals are chauffeured. However, it is possible to rent a sprinter van and drive it yourself. Please visit our page on sprinter van rentals without a driver for more information.

Can I rent an ADA accessible bus?

We would be happy to arrange an accessible bus rental for you. We just ask that you mention this in your booking as far in advance as possible so that we can arrange the perfect vehicle for you.

Missions/outreach groups

One of the cornerstones of any spiritual group is community outreach. A broad term with many faces, it can range from simple, local social activities to traveling the world representing the church. Whether you’re looking to attract crowds to your community events, or simply wanting to provide community members with a financially-accessible, dignified way to attend meetings and events, we’ve got the ideal charter bus rental for you and your team. Bus.com’s helpful staff will not only help you build a custom, flexible itinerary, we’ll find you the perfect church bus rental to suit your budget, as well, so you can spend a little more on snacks for movie night.

Congregations

A congregation is more than just a group of people who share a pew once a week. It’s a community of faith and inclusion, a fold into which people from all walks of life can feel welcome, to practice, learn, and grow. Whether it’s Sunday mass, Friday prayer, Shabbat service, or one of the many other religious observances practiced across North America, one common denominator is the ritual of assembling to worship as a group. Bus.com will work with you to help you organize a cost-effective – and accessible, if needed – bus rental to and from your religious services, so no one gets left behind.

Youth groups

Young people are known as the lifeblood of many an organization. Everything, from language, to popular culture, to political movements, is heavily influenced by the younger generations, and religion is no exception. By chartering a minibus or school bus for your youth group with Bus.com, you’re not only ensuring the safety of your church’s kids en route to their events, you’re providing them with a fun, (mostly) parent-free environment in which they can form lifelong bonds with both their peers and the church. And there’s the added bonus of giving parents a much-needed break from chauffeur duties.

Clergy

There is a lot involved in being a clergy member. Not only do they offer support and guidance to members of the congregation, they are also central figures in some of the most pivotal moments of people’s lives.  From hopping across town for hospital rounds, to visiting isolated communities and congregation members, to merely running errands, clergy members need to get around. Chartering a bus to shuttle church staff to and from their many obligations can help alleviate some of the stress that comes with the territory of being a man or woman of the cloth.
