Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
