Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

Thank you for arranging the bus transportation for our Mid Atlantic Regional meeting held in Williamsburg last week.  The driver did a wonderful job for us despite the heavy rain and traffic conditions.  He was very professional and courteous and represented James River Transportation well.  We will keep you in mind for our future transportation needs.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

“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.”

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?
