View Full Version : Meetup Groups: Charter a bus!

Here's an idea for Meetup Groups within 4-6 hours from Philly: consider chartering a Motor Coach.

Easy to do, just check the Yellow Pages for operators and rates. For typical group of 40 to 50, it can be surprisingly affordable and gets you door-to-door service. Very comfortable, no parking hassles.

Make it a party on the bus coming and going, get everyone spun up! Avoid the cost of an overnight stay if you wish, or arrange group rate at a hotel and let folks do some sightseeing.

excellent! all nearby meetups should charter a bus to get there, and bring your friends and neighbours on a cheap trip to Philly to celebrate the cause of FREEDOM (and to fill the seats on the bus(es) if your group is small!)

Just make sure the bus will show the destination on the front sign as FREEDOM

and allow the passengers to decorate the outside of the bus.

Good luck getting a bus.

We tried to get one for our Meetup. We tried to get one about 3 weeks ago. All the local companies were booked already. One lady told me to call 3 months in advance if I want one for a Saturday in the fall next year.

Apparently they are all booked for wine tastings, college sports and shopping trips to NY.
