Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

We were very happy with the buses and the drivers. They were fantastic and so accommodating.

“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 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!

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!

Thank you so much for all that you do to make my annual “pilgrimage” to Boston so successful.  I know I can count on you for whatever strange thing I may need, even at the last minute.  Please pass along to John Walton how wonderful a driver he is.  Not only do I feel completely safe on the road, I know that his joyful attitude will keep 44 teenagers in good spirits!  He is to be commended for his skills and attitude.  I can’t thank him enough for making my responsibilities so much lighter.

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!

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.
