Why Ride with James River

Your organization is an asset to your community.  Given the limited charter school bus situation in the greater Richmond area, we were fortunate that James River Bus Lines could meet the many needs we had.  Again, many thanks.  You were a vital part of the success of our conference experience.  May God bless you in all your endeavors.

The rating for our driver on a scale of 1 to 10 was a unanimous 10+++.  Our guests really felt comfortable with her and loved her upbeat spirit and daily smile.  Please let her know how much we appreciated her efforts on our behalf!

I would like to share with you the very nice experience my family and I had involving one of your drivers, Tom Reitzel.  We recently visited Williamsburg, Virginia and had the pleasure of Tom’s service.  Tom was an amazing asset to our trip and really enhanced our overall experience.  He was a true pleasure to be around.   Tom was available whenever we needed him and was amenable to our frequent changes.  He really went above and beyond expectations.

Working with you and your staff has been such a pleasure as always. The drivers and transportation vehicles that you and your team provided for each event went above and beyond to ensure that the guests experienced each event at its fullest. What more could we have asked for?

“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.”

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!

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.

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.
