From what I’ve looked at in my area that’s the norm.  Boo.

Ya, I think anywhere from 700-1000 is about what I would expect…Maybe call another company or two just to compare?

Hang in there Erin!  How many people are you trying to move?  Do you need a full-size bus?  Would one or two smaller busses be cheaper.  My guess is that the quote you got is sort of right on target, but you could always check in similar locales to see if you get similar quotes (even if you are not planning on using them).

How about a school bus instead of a charter bus? A friend of mine did that and while I don’t know exactly what they ended up paying, it was DEFINITELY not 1K as that would have eaten up a tone of her whole budget. I don’t know how that works, though, but I’m going to look into it for myself since my ceremony and reception site is the next town over from Mystic, where all the hotels are.

I hate to say it, but that price is normal for around my parts, too.  You know if the event was something other than a wedding it would probably be cheaper, lol.

The bus I booked has the capacity for 50 ppl and the quote I got is $175/hr, time starts when the the bus leaves the garage. The place our guests are staying is roughly 25 min each way from the ceremony/reception site. The estimate turns out to be like $680.

@Erindesmar- LOL. It does seem that people tend to upcharge when they find out it’s something wedding-related.

@pren79:  Was your company in MA? What company was this, if you don’t mind me asking?
