Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

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.

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!

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!

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the driver assigned to our tour was exceptional and very professional.  Not only was he extremely friendly and helpful but he also went out of his way to ensure that the trip was enjoyable to all.  As a retired school teacher, I really admired his interactions with the students.  His willingness to help passengers, his “can do” attitude and friendly disposition reflect great credit on your company and the people of Virginia.  Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience and an exceptional tour driver.

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.

We have been very pleased over all these years, and we won’t take a class trip without James River Bus Lines.

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.
