Charter bus rentals for government employees

Bus.com has experience providing charters for government employees at the municipal, state (or provincial), and federal levels.

Government and civil agencies of the US and Canada perform the complete scope of functions essential for the smooth running of a country. The employees of the majority of these agencies are considered civil servants and are responsible for all bureaucratic duties.

 

Transportation is required for the vast majority of non-virtual projects that cannot be performed at the office — from research to training and from inspections to implementation. As long as the project requires a team of civil servants to work out of the office as a group, some form of transportation is inevitably needed. A government bus charter is the optimal solution. Bus.com is proud to offer safe and reliable charter bus rentals to all government employees.

The DoD is the largest employer in the world, with over 1.3 Million soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, and civil contractors who perform tasks across the country. The DoD widely uses charter buses for both training and on-duty transportation, as well as for renting buses for personnel during state emergencies.

EPA employees rent buses to visit industry and government leaders to work on preserving resources and preventing pollution.

Canadian Government Agencies

Canadian government employees (also called the public service) develop, advise on, and execute government projects. They mainly work in the public sector and implement policies and laws in all areas that affect people’s everyday life, like education and health. Canadian government and civil charter buses are used by nearly every public service to meet, conduct monitoring, or execute field projects.

The Department of Health Canada (or SC) is responsible for Canadian health policy. It is responsible for health-related agencies, like the Public Health Agency of Canada, Together, those agencies and the Department ensure public safety, food safety, drug distribution and availability, information availability, research, and emergency support programs. All agencies use charter buses during cooperation and special field projects and inspections.
