How Bus.com is Disrupting the Charter Bus Rental Space

Bus travel remains the most popular form of public transportation in the country. Most days, millions of people ride buses to work, to visit family and friends, or to go on a vacation.

In fact, the US has well mapped-out public and private bus routes in every city, and between most major cities as well. One could argue that in terms of moving people around, it is the bus system that is most indispensable.

When private groups seek to travel together, one option they have is by charter or bus rental. But often chartering a bus can be difficult, because the process is complicated and it can be difficult to get a bus charter, to take you to the destination you desire, if it is off the beaten path.  Finally, after you go through all of the work to get the bus rented, you could end up with a bad quality bus or driver ruining your entire trip.

Today, there are companies that have taken charter bus rental to the next level.

We’ve all heard of Uber and Lyft, well there are a number of other ‘travel share’ companies disrupting the transportation industry. Among them is Bus.com, which is helping consumers book charter bus rentals almost as easily as they’d hail an Uber.

This post will provide insight into Bus.com and why they are becoming the preferred bus charter option for so many people.

The Bus.com Story

In 2013, entrepreneurs Kyle Bouley and Wolf Kohlberg, met and became friends based on their shared interests in music festivals. They often lamented however on how difficult many of these festivals were to reach, because of their typically remote-locations.

Wolf had previously organized bus travel in Germany, putting together trips for friends to get to their favorite soccer team’s games. Kyle was a developer and web designer with the skills to build tools that could help travelers organize their own bus trips online. Together, they founded Bus.com.

Their mission for the company was simple; to revolutionize group transportation by enabling travelers to reach events and destinations that are otherwise inconvenient to get to. And to provide a service that offers flexible schedules and personal pick-up points. To make all of this work smoothly for customers, they collaborate with bus riders, event organizers, and bus companies. This makes Bus.com efficient, and perfectly aligned with customer’s needs.

But their mission is not only about getting customers from Point A to B, it is also about the journey in between. Each trip you, the rider, meet new people, and have an adventure that leads to memorable times. The company always seeks to add to those memories with its helpful service.
