i think so , we are doing a shuttle as well and have decided on a school bus. We got a rate of around 630 for 9 hrs. The other shuttle services were just to much $$$.

Also when I spoke to the lady at the bus company she mentioned that they have busses that are only used for weddings . So they are in great condition.

 

Hope this helps!

I think the school bus would be fun!  I say go for it 🙂  I agree… free transportation is free transportation, and if they don’t want to ride the school bus, they can arrange for their own transportation.

I think it sounds like a great idea. Its something I’ve considered too, since our ceremony site is about 25 minutes from the reception site. I just haven’t decided. We are also considering renting a shuttle take bring all of FIs guests to where we live for the wedding (every single guest of his is 8 hours away). Still have to look into it, but if I was a guest I would love it.

(also when I was in a sorority they offered us a shuttle from the campus to the dance, and it was great especially for people who wanted to drink, etc).

Would you have it running at different times, so guests could leave early if they wanted to?

I say go for it. 

We are providing shuttles that are basically mini-vans and I asked Fiance if that was “classy enough”. His response- free transporation is very classy. 

I would LOVE to rent a school bus 🙂

were totally doing a school bus. i dont even care.

coach buses are just too expensive.

i’m in wilmington and my dad managed to get a very reasonable quote from someone down here. i’m not sure if they’d go up to philly, but PM me if you’re interested

Hubby and I just had our wedding last weekend and we used 2 school buses — WAY cheapter than shuttles — We were quoted about 1400 for 2 shuttles for the time we needed them and our 2 school buses cost a total of 300 for THE ENTIRE NIGHT — Our guests thought it was awesome and had so much fun on the buses! I struggled with the “is this cheap” thoughts, but honestly, you’re being kind enough to provide transportation and your guests should be grateful for it!

@mglem89:  where was your wedding and what bus company did you use?  I got quotes of about $700 a school bus in New York.  Thanks!

I live near Chicago and used a company from my hometown … we contacted the local bus company that buses the school kids in our area .. I’d try that .. but New York is probably going to be more expensive than a Chicago suburb! Hope this helps! Good luck!

We used a school bus for our  bridal party instead of limos!  It was a blast!
