I once asked for a quote for a coach bus to provide round trip for guests, about a 30 minute drive each way, with a six hour gap for the reception.  They quoted $850 for one 56-seater coach.  I imagine a school bus would be quite a bit less.

Keep in mind that if you provide transportation one way, you’ll have to give them a ride back too.  The kicker is that you’re paying the driver to sit there for several hours while you party.

I think it probably varies a lot depending on where you live, but we got married in Delaware and one PA company I talked to charged $685 for a 48 passenger school bus for 9 hours.  Their school buses didn’t have air-conditioning though, so I was a little concerned about that.  They were definitely a much cheaper option than coach buses though.

@sarahnyc23: what PA company did you use? I am looking to do that as well, as the hotel only offers an 11 person shuttle, which would be fine, but I have 150 Irish people who, needless to say, will need a ride.
