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.

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.

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 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!

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.
