Why Ride with James River

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.

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.

“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.”

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!

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 have used James River for multiple years for our field trips and I have always been pleased with your company and the customer support that is offered.  I would highly recommend James River Transportation to all of my colleagues.  Thank you so much!

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.

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!
