When a group of us decided to go into the city to have a nice meal and see a play, we decided to see how much it would cost to charter a small bus. There were only 20 of us going, but that was enough to where it would be hard to figure out transportation if we each took our own vehicles. Since we were going nearly 90 minutes away, we just figured it would be fun to all go together. I did an online search to find a reliable bus charter service, and it did not take me long at all.
I was able to find St Lee Transport, and they have buses that come in all different sizes. There was one that would seat 20 of us comfortably, and I was even able to see pictures of it online. I showed it to my friends, and we decided to go this route if it was affordable to do so. We knew that just avoiding the nightmare of finding parking in the city for both the restaurant as well as the theater would be well worth whatever cost, unless it was just too high.
I was able to get a quote pretty fast. When I split the cost between all 20 of us, it was definitely affordable. We all agreed to meet at our church since it was all church members going. The bus picked us up there, and we had such a great time even just on the bus ride. It was the first time we had traveled together like that, but it definitely won’t be the last. Because of the low cost per person and the amount of fun that we all had, we are going to do this at least a couple of times a year from now on.
