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.

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!

“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?

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!
