Event planners have a lot on their proverbial plates. From keeping bridezilla cool, to coordinating with multiple corporate partners, to being the liaison between venue and host — they’ve got a large checklist that can sometimes feel never-ending.
One thing many Alberta event planners no longer have to worry about is transportation. Why? Because they’ve used Red Arrow luxury coaches before, and the process, from beginning to end, was so seamless and simple that they’ve made Red Arrow their unofficial transportation option.
Below are the top 4 benefits every event planner needs to know about chartering a bus:
1. Everyone Will Be At The Event On Time
As an event planner, there’s nothing worse than the best man, or a keynote speaker showing up late to their respective events. Whether it's a wedding, a conference, or any other type of event, as an event planner you know that people need to arrive at certain times in order for the event to run smoothly.
Utilizing a charter bus makes it easy to transport large groups from one location to another efficiently. For example, think about moving and entire family from a hotel to a wedding venue — sometimes it can feel like herding cows. With a charter bus everyone will arrive at the same time taking the stress out of those important, but late, arrivals.
2 . Chartering a Bus is Comfortable & Safe
Utilizing a charter bus ensures the comfort and safety of all passengers. Especially when your group is traveling long distances, the ride itself can become part of the event! These rides can be a great time for your clients to prepare for a big business meeting, take fun on-board photos, relax before a long event, or even play games!
All Red Arrow luxury coaches are fully equipped with the best of the best to keep your guests comfortable on their journey. From complimentary WiFi, temperature control for comfort, extra legroom, optional on-board light meals, pillows, light fleece blankets, free onboard movies, power outlets, and so much more — Red Arrow buses will kick off, and conclude their trip the right way!
While comfort is a plus, safety is a must. That is why keeping our passengers safe is the #1 mission at Red Arrow. Our safety vision is a declaration of our absolute commitment to safety in everything we do and, ultimately, it is about getting each and every one of us and our passengers Safely Home at the end of our respective journeys.
Not only is using Red Arrow services a safe option, it rules out having Uncle Bob, who may have abused the open bar privileges during the wedding, get in a car and drive back to the hotel. With no one’s personal cars at the venue, you’ll ensure the safety of all guests.
3. It’s an Affordable Option
Chartering a bus is an affordable option for everyone involved. Limo services are likely to be more expensive, they won’t have the ability to transport nearly the same amount of people, and don’t have close to the same amenities available at no cost to the passenger.
Just think about all the additional travel costs that go into having clients drive their own vehicles to venues. Especially if these locations are downtown, your clients may need to pay to park in garages, dish out cash for valets, or struggle with finding street parking.
When you consider how many individual cars that will be subject to parking fees, chartering a bus starts to look even more appealing than it already was! Traveling with Red Arrow is a one time cost that you have total control over. And best of all, when you have the option of transporting your entire group at once you can control the time of departure and arrival. Instead of everyone driving their own vehicles, or looking for their own method of transportation, chartering a bus allows everyone to arrive at the same place at the same time so your group doesn’t miss any of the fun.
4. Red Arrow is Customizable
Red Arrow knows that when choosing a method of transportation for your event, your priorities are value, comfort, flexibility, and safety. Luckily, our core values align with those priorities and we strive every day to make the Red Arrow experience one of pure enjoyment.

If you have a smaller group (13-25 passengers), no problem! You can charter a mini-coach or shuttle van! Albertan event planners love the convenience of chartering a smaller vehicle to move their groups. Whether it’s transporting a wedding party, helping conference attendees get around campus, or sending your clients on a team-building retreat, we have smaller vehicle charter services to suit your needs.
Chartering a luxury coach, shuttle, or mini-coach saves your clients time and money! Imagine not needing to pay for parking, gas money for multiple vehicles, wear and tear on your vehicles, coordinating departure and arrival times, dealing with the stress of traffic and maps. Have your guests sit back, relax, and enjoy the fun of traveling with their fellow passengers in a Red Arrow chartered vehicle. Our friendly drivers know Alberta and will get you and your fellow passengers safely to and from your destination.
