Can anyone recommend a relatively inexpensive way to transport ~50-60 guest to and from our ceremony and reception sites? I’ve looked into charter buses, though I’d really like to spend less if possible. I’d appreciate any suggestions or recommendations of reasonably priced rental companies.
Thanks so much!

How far apart are your ceremony and reception sites?
Also if you bus people from the ceremony site to the reception site… will they have to be bussed back to the ceremony site so they can drive home? Or are they staying near the ceremony site…

Technically the two sites are only a few miles apart, probably 5-7 miles, but this would require guest to drive through Cambridge and Boston, MA. Most guests are from out of town and driving (and parking) in Boston can be a harrowing experience. I’d like to spare them that and I’d like to have the bus depart from and return people to the hotel where our room block is reserved. So…hotel, ceremony, reception, hotel!

Have you checked with the hotel where your guests are staying to see if they can recommend a bus company for you? I would look into that first, if not one of the school bus or trolley companies might be a good solution: http://www.crystaltransport.com, http://www.vocell.com.

are you affiliated in anyway with one of the Boston and or Cambridge Universities? I was able to charter buses from Harvard to transport my guests and they were on time and reasonably priced!
