Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

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 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.

James River Transportation is the best!  My DH and I live in Chester, and we like to travel frequently.  When we travel, we always call on James River to get us to and from the Richmond Airport.  They are easy to book on-line and are always reliable and prompt.  Their cars are clean and well taken care of.  The drivers are polite, courteous, helpful, safety-conscious, friendly, respectful, and professional.  They are very customer oriented and aim to please.  As I said, they are the best!

The charter bus for the tacky lights tour last night was so much fun. Michael was amazing!!! Everyone is already talking about a tour for next year. A huge thanks to both you and Michael for the professionalism and ensuring that my friends and I had a blast.

Happy Holidays!

You guys are wonderful to work with. We use you every year for our field trip for K-12 teachers. Reservations are handled promptly and expertly, and the coaches are always super-clean and pleasant to ride in, with friendly and knowledgeable drivers. I have to say that working with your company is one of the easiest and smoothest parts of my job!

“As I’ve reviewed the responses of my Go for the Goal program facilitators to the surveys Bonnie sent after each college trip during November, it is very clear that James River Transportation is the premier bus company for school groups. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such positive comments in my 30+ years of taking field trips with chartered buses. I have always enjoyed superlative service from Sheila as I make the initial contacts; to know that my teachers are experiencing the same professionalism from the drivers is gratifying.”
