What You Can Expect from Your NYC Bus Driver
Your charter bus driver can take you anywhere in New York.
When you rent a private charter bus rental in New York City through us, you can count on your driver to handle all the logistics for you no matter where you go. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy onboard amenities in your New York City charter bus like WiFi, TVs, cushioned seats, and AM/FM radio while your charter bus driver handles all the traffic and parking. Each driver in our network aims to arrive at least 15 minutes early to each stop on your itinerary, so you can count on them to get your group where you need to be.
On top of that, our extensive network allows us to connect you with the right charter bus in New York, no matter where you need to go. Your bus driver can drive a charter bus to Barclays Center for a Nets game if that’s your speed, or drive a charter bus to the Adirondacks to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City. Just let our team know when you call us at 917-388-9602 what your itinerary is, and we can match you with the right bus driver anywhere in New York.
Your charter bus driver will need breaks.
Charter bus drivers can only legally remain on duty for 15 hours or drive for 10 hours straight without an eight-hour break. This is to ensure their health and your safety, as you want your charter bus driver to be well-rested during their time with you. If you are just renting a bus for five hours or so, like if you rent a wedding charter bus rental in New York City for a bachelorette party, your charter bus driver can provide their own meals and take their own breaks as your schedule allows.
You will need to provide lodging for overnight trips.
Depending on your group’s itinerary, you may need to provide lodging for your charter bus driver. This is usually only the case if you are taking a multi-night trip, such as a charter bus rental to the Hudson Valley for a weekend retreat, or if you are on the road for more than 10 hours straight driving. Your charter bus driver will need their own room, and some hotels are willing to work with you to give a discounted rate if you ask.
It’s customary to tip your charter bus driver.
While it’s not required, it’s customary and appreciated to tip your charter bus driver for a job well done. A cash tip equal to 5% to 10% of the cost of your New York City charter bus rental is the standard.
