Being in control of everything, traveling together with your group, in comfort, and with no loss of connectivity — for many people, that is what the perfect group trip looks like. Well, I have some good news for you, and that is you can have all of that and more when chartering a motorcoach with Arrow Stage Lines.
When considering transportation for your group, you have many options in today’s world. You could fly with the airlines, ride a schedule bus, take separate cars/vans, or better yet, charter a motorcoach. If you have never had the opportunity to do this before, it may sound like a daunting task, but if you ask someone who has chartered a trip on one of our motorcoaches, they will tell you how surprisingly easy it is. We have put together 5 reasons your next trip should be in a motorcoach, and we are sure it will convince you to consider chartering a motorcoach for your next group transportation.
- It brings your group together– Who would not want that as a group leader? This is one of the biggest “yeah we know” statements, but it truly is one of the best advantages to traveling in a motorcoach. Whether a 10 minute or a month-long trip, you will feel a connection and strengthened relationship with the people you are on your motorcoach with. With up to 54 seats in a motorcoach, that could result in a lot of opportunities for bonding relationships or even making new friends. 🙂
- You’re in charge – When chartering a motorcoach, you and your group are ultimately in charge of when your trip leaves, where you go, how many stops you make along the way, and how far you go. There are legal limitations for the hours motorcoach operators drive, but other than that, you are completely in charge. This is a considerable advantage in today’s world where everything is go, go, go. You oversee your schedule, where you stop, what you do, and essentially everything else. You plan your trip, and you get to decide if you want a jam-packed adventure or if you prefer a more relaxing, slower paced trip. Who would not love that?!
- Comfort & Connectivity – Comfort is one of the luxuries of traveling in a motorcoach and that is why our motorcoaches are equipped with plush, comfortable seats, footrests, and ample leg room to stretch your legs. Most motorcoaches in today’s world are as connected as the average home or workplace. Our motorcoaches provide outlets at every seat and WIFI throughout the vehicle. So, there is no reason you cannot do your work, homework, watch a movie, or play games during the entire trip! With massive panoramic windows surrounding the motorcoach, we encourage you to spend some time taking in the breathtaking views, but we also understand how important it is to stay connected. WIFI and outlets seem to be the lifeblood of many these days and our motorcoaches do not fall short on having those amenities.
- Eco-friendly – Some people see eco-friendly and say “yeah… right…”, because of the large diesel engines that power the motorcoach. However, when you truly look at the numbers and see the positive impact we are making, it is sincerely astonishing. There are a lot of numbers and facts that I could provide you, but the key one I always like to think about, is the sheer number of cars that are not on the road driving, because the people are instead, riding in a motorcoach. When you see one motorcoach traveling down the road, it is reasonable to think that at least 30-50 cars are not on the road causing traffic issues, and more importantly, not polluting the eco system. Just imagine the difference we could make with a push in motorcoach transportation. This could have a massive positive impact on our cities and world.
At Arrow Stage Lines, we have always been focused on helping to make the world a better place and that includes continuing to seek out ways to be “greener”. A few of the examples of being a more sustainable organization are our paperless systems and digital footprint, operating idle free motorcoaches with lower emissions, using environmentally safe oil change machines, and recycling. We have been recognized by UMA (United Motorcoach Association) who presented us with their 2019 Motorcoach Environmental Leadership Award for our efforts and success, and was also awarded the 2017 Green Spirit Award given by ABA (American Bus Association).
Innovation – The motorcoach industry is always looking to innovate in many different areas. Arrow Stage Lines has been a significant part of this movement in many different ways, and it has shown itself in the many industry awards won for innovative operator of the year. Arrow Stage Lines has worked hard at making the customer experience world class and something that no one else in the industry has done. Simple Accept, Arrow Connect, and the Certificate of Sustainable Transportation are just a few little things that Arrow has done to innovate in the last couple of years.
When looking for the best group transportation method, we would challenge and encourage you to always put charter motorcoaches at the top of your list. Some may argue that we are not the fastest way to get from point A to point B. However, we can provide you with one of the safest ways to travel, and we can guarantee that you will stay connected, stay in control, bring your group closer together, change the world by being eco-friendly, and innovate how people travel in our world!
