Why Ride with James River

Thank you so much for all that you do to make my annual “pilgrimage” to Boston so successful.  I know I can count on you for whatever strange thing I may need, even at the last minute.  Please pass along to John Walton how wonderful a driver he is.  Not only do I feel completely safe on the road, I know that his joyful attitude will keep 44 teenagers in good spirits!  He is to be commended for his skills and attitude.  I can’t thank him enough for making my responsibilities so much lighter.

From the minute your driver picked us up at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Norfolk to the minute he dropped us off late that afternoon, he was fabulous. Not only was he a safe and cautious driver, but he seemed so interested in the tour our group was taking. It turned out that he was a history buff, and he was able to add so much information about the Tidewater area for these women who had come from all around the country. We all learned so much and everyone had a wonderful time.

Thank you once again for all of your support and leadership during our WYSE and WJMC conferences. We had a wonderful time working with your drivers and even took a moment to celebrate Wilbur’s birthday!

Please let Ernie, Wilbur, John, and Tim know that they are absolutely fantastic. They were very patient, understanding, and punctual. They were always positive and delightful to work with. I am not always with the buses, but I know that our staff and students are in good hands. Thank you for supplying us with such wonderful, polite, and enthusiastic drivers. Please add them to our preferred driver list. I will definitely be requesting those same drivers for future events.

Even though your company was not able to beat a competitor’s cost, I chose JRT because of the service you provided. Your quick-turn around time responding to my questions and your flexibility with providing my team with options swayed my decision to choose service over cost for my department’s outing. Thank you for your excellent service.

After arriving on a red-eye from Los Angeles that included a connecting flight, I found the James River booth at the Richmond Airport a welcome oasis.  I appreciated their courtesy and rates.  Having never been to Richmond I received the hospitality that Richmond exudes through my arrival trip to Henrico with Richard and my return trip to the airport with James a day after.  Thank you, James River.  I’ll see you in Virginia Beach soon.

I just wanted to say Thank You to you and your staff for such an outstanding job during our NUSA conference.  Your company and employees are second to none.  It was a pleasure working with you and I will always recommend James River Bus Lines in the future.
