Field trips come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and thankfully, so do our buses!
For larger groups, the iconic yellow school bus is a safe and affordable choice with space for up to 52 students and chaperones.
For trips longer than 3 hours when comfort is key, a coach bus is also a great choice for large groups, and its onboard restroom and optional amenities can reduce the number of pit stops you’ll need to make on the way. Mini buses and mini coach buses, are affordable and flexible alternatives that are ideal for groups of up to 24 and 40, respectively.
Sprinter vans are our smallest vehicle type. They’re perfect for special transportation duty and class sizes under 15. Additionally, sprinter vans can be rented without a driver if you would rather provide your own qualified driver for your field trip adventure.
