Chartering a bus in Orlando Miami Tampa Daytona Beach & Florida guidelines by the ATC Buses Team.🙂

Safety, quality and to comply with DOT (Department of Transportation) Government regulations are three must do task to keep in mind and consider when looking for the best company fit to transport your group safely from point A to point B; a service done in a Safe - Reliable and Courteous way. 

Thus is very important to keep in mind these factors when selecting a charter bus - motor coach operator. A quality motorcoach operator is one that is reliable, who employs professional drivers, offers outstanding customer service before - during and after the service has been delivered, meets all rider needs and it's got affordable rates. The cheapest option is not often the best option, from expectations to the reason of why they try to undercut competition by lowering their prices - standards. Taking shortcuts on price often means cutting corners on safety and standards of service. 

Be on Top of Your Contract when Choosing a Charter Bus - Motorcoach Company in Florida:

  •  Motorcoach companies in good standing must have federal operating authority, and should be able to offer you proof of that authority, which is issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.). Additionally, many states and provinces require that a carrier obtain operating authority for interstate operations. 
  • Always ask for proof of a valid, current insurance certificate (COI) that provides a U.S. minimum of $1 million in liability insurance coverage, and request for them to produce one having your group or party added as additional insured in their policy. 
  • Ask for the carrier’s U.S. DOT number. Carriers are required to have a U.S. DOT number clearly displayed, and should be either 5 or 6 digits long. By using that number, you can view the carrier’s safety information online at 
  • Pay special attention to the lower part of the DOT Company Snapshot page, where you see the list of inspections and accidents if any, and the % of this company compared to the other United States of America charter bus rental companies in safety. 
  • All U.S. based motorcoaches must have an annual inspection done and a small sticker usually found visible on the window next to the driver with the date, and the mechanic that performed the inspection signature. All U.S. drivers are required to have a valid, current Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), with a passenger endorsement printed on the front license with the symbol P for "passenger". 
  • Long or quick-turn-around trips may require an extra driver to adhere to federal Hours of Service safety requirements, by regulation no more than 10 straight hours driving or up to 14 hrs driving when 2 drivers. 
  • Ask the charter bus company for recommendations on lodging, restaurants tips, shopping areas, and tourist attractions. 
  • If you require it, check to make sure that the operator has multilingual drivers as we do in Avalos Transportation Company Inc (ATC Buses). 
  • Experience also in dealing with international customers is a must, language is important if multilingual driver is available as well as a person who is familiar with the customs of the Country where the group on tour is from, whether is Australia, India, China or Canada. 

Top Safety Choice: 

 Motorcoaches are the safest form of surface transportation, according to government statistics. But one injury or fatality is one too many, which is why safety remains our top priority as described in our motto since we started ATC Buses: Safe - Reliable & Courteous. 

Strong enforcement of existing Department of Transportation laws can yield quantifiable safety positive results we see today. Driver education and follow up is very important, and we are on top of that; establishing educational benchmarks for drivers from their driver performance to customer service, after all they are by extension the image of our company on each and every charter bus transportation service in: Charter Bus Orlando, Charter Bus Miami, Charter Bus Tampa, Charter Bus Daytona Beach, and Charter Bus in Florida Cities or even when looking for shuttle service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) to Port Canaveral Cruise Terminals

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the country and the world, we all must remain vigilant. The changes we have had to make to routines and daily life are extremely hard, but these changes are even more important now and in the future. We must stop the spread of this new and dangerous virus. The more steps you and your family can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the safer you will be.*

What Is ATC Buses Orlando Doing To Keep You and your group safe:

_ We at ATC Buses Orlando have alcohol-based hand sanitizer in every motor coach entrance, so every time a passenger enters the bus unit they can use some and have their hands and contact surfaces as clean and disinfected as possible.

_ In our buses you will also find sanitizing wipes, disposable tissues and disinfecting spray.

_ All coach bus drivers are trained to screen passengers for symptoms before and during travel and to follow a strict protocol for recommending to group leaders which actions to take for the safety of the driver and passengers group. 

_ Thoroughly disinfects each of its coach bus units inside between charter services, including all touch surfaces and air vents/filters.

_ While ATC Buses Orlando cannot guarantee that no one who chooses to travel on a coach bus will be exposed to the corona virus from a fellow passenger, we can do our best to protect you & your group and our drivers while we provide a 5 star transportation service. 

Recommendations to all groups based on CDC guidelines:

  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others      and stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from      others who don’t live with you, particularly in crowded areas. We keep a      row empty between passengers unless directed otherwise by the person in      charge of the group.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water      for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Before boarding our buses we ask for the group to be observant of these particular guidelines from CDC: 

Symptoms to watch for: (The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are)

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea

If any of these Symptoms are present or developing in any of the passengers, we require for them to avoid taking that specific trip with the group.
