We've been helping clients for decades and when you call USA Bus Charter, we remove all the hassles, stress and worries from having to shop around to find the right bus charter at the right price. Here's why it can be difficult right now to find a bus charter.
Nationwide Shortage of Drivers
During 2020 in the midst of the COVID pandemic, the charter bus industry came to a halt as groups were not traveling. Many drivers left the charter bus business and went to drive other commercial vehicles for shipping and freight companies, trucking companies and other industries that required commercial driving experience. While many drivers returned to the charter bus business in 2021 when things started to open and business was getting back to normal, many did not. Thus, there are charter bus operations nationwide that have buses available but do not have professional drivers to operate the buses.
Fewer Charter Bus Companies
COVID took it's toll on plenty of charter bus operations during 2020. As operations for many came to a stand still operators lost buses and many decided to close their doors. When business started to return in 2021, there were fewer companies than ever to support the needs of clients who were anxious to get back out there and travel. Thus, there is a nationwide shortage of charter bus operations and the demand for bus charter service is greater than the current supply.
Reduction in Fleet Size
Some charter bus companies nationwide were forced to downsize. Many companies returned newer leased and/or financed buses they could not afford to pay for during 2020 and kept buses that were paid for and didn't have lease/finance payments. This caused a reduction in fleet size. Thus, once again making fewer buses available once the industry started to see a return in 2021.
