Transportation for the Elderly

Hi. My name’s Betty. I’m sixty-two years old and live with my husband, Matt. My mother lives on our property, but at age ninety-one still insists on living alone. Mom has a good mind and for her age does well physically. She drove up until four years ago when we all decided it would be best for her to not be behind the wheel. It’s worked out well with her living on our property. Matt or I would take her places. We made sure she had groceries, made it to doctors appointments, and to her social engagements. About six months ago, however, Matt fell ill and our lives changed. I am his full-time caregiver, and Matt can no longer drive. I had to find help for my Mom which was difficult to do. I am going to share what I found and hope it helps you should you ever need transportation.

Tips For Renting Out A Bus Charter For Group Transportation

If you have a group that needs to reach a certain destination, charter bus rentals are a great transportation option. They're large and often come with a lot of great amenities. Just make sure you use these rental tips to your advantage.

Assess the Total Distance of Trip 

Once you figure out where your group is going in a charter bus, you want to calculate the total distance that will be traveled. You'll then be able to calculate costs better, as well as find a charter bus company that can support this distance safely.

Most charter bus rental companies will calculate your costs based on the distance traveled and you'll receive these quotes before signing anything. Look them over to make sure the rates are fair for the distance that your group is traveling. Also, make sure the driver accompanying this charter bus has the ability to travel this distance.

Think About the Number of Passengers Traveling

There are different sizes of charter buses that your group can rent out to travel to a particular destination. In order to get the right bus size the first time, make sure you gather a headcount of all of the passengers going on this journey.

You can make this easy by sending out RSVPs to group members that you believe would want to go. Then you can clearly see how many people are coming and give this information to the charter bus rental company. They'll then recommend a particular bus size that works out great.

Make Sure Pickup Location is Close By

In order to save your group fuel costs, it's a good idea to actively search for a charter bus rental company that has a nearby pickup location. Then you and others won't have to travel very far to reach the charter bus and then go about your journey.

First, you need to see which charter bus companies are in your area and then see where their pickup locations are. You'll quickly see which company has the most convenient pickup location for you and your group.

Chartering a bus may be necessary if you're traveling with a large group, whether it's for a church retreat or to see some historical momentums in an area. As long as you calculate the right things before making your decision with this rental, you can set this transportation experience up for success without struggling at all.
