Shuttle Bus – The Quickest Way From Point A To Point B

What is a shuttle bus?

A shuttle bus is a minibus that shuttles (transports between two places) people from one main location to one or more satellite locations, usually for free. For example, a shuttle bus may carry one from the airport to the hotel they are staying at. Shuttle buses are usually free because they are a ‘convenience addition’ part to an overall service you might be paying for. New and used shuttle buses will usually be found around airports, around and in terminals, cases where airports do not use a jet bridge, transference from airport to car parks, etc. These airport shuttle buses will usually link with other transport hubs shuttle buses to seamlessly ferry passengers to destination.
Shuttle buses are usually painted in bright colours or the brand colours of its owning enterprise. Various types of shuttle buses are available for sale: like intermodal shuttle buses for sale, express service shuttle buses for sale, premium shuttle buses for sale with extra luggage space.
Shuttle buses are usually designed to carry anywhere between 15-45 people. Prospects looking to purchase new and used shuttle buses are companies/enterprises/businesses looking to enhance their customer service by providing shuttle bus services to its customers.

Do you need CDL for shuttle bus?

CDL stands for Commercial Driver’s License. CDL is a required pre-requisite to driving a shuttle bus The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration of the United States (FMCSA) states that if the shuttle bus weighs less than 26,000lbs and transports less than 16 people, a CDL is not required to drive that shuttle bus. GVMR stands for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and is the weight value specified by the vehicle manufacturer as the maximum loaded weight.
The above means that a shuttle bus will require a CDL permit if the bus weighs more than 26,000lbs GVWR and has more than 15 passengers (including the driver) regardless of the weight, and whether it is a new or used shuttle bus.
Regulations may differ state-wise, for example, Kentucky requires the weight to only be factored in as far as which class of CDL is required. Any vehicle weighing more than 26,000 pounds by itself is not enough to require a CDL. Therefore, make sure to consult your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles or Department of Transportation for proper licensing requirements of new shuttle buses for sale or used shuttle buses

I recently bought a bus through Nations Bus and it was honestly the BEST experience that I have ever been through! I was a bit confused about the type of bus that I should have bought, but the staff there was friendly and patient enough to explain every little detail about the buses to me! Thanks a lot Nations Bus. 5 STAR for sure.

We have a huge family with our 3 kids and 2 of my sister’s, and we often plan weekend getaways together. Last month I decided to finally buy a shuttle bus for the family vacations. And Nations Bus has been the best agency ever. Their friendly staff never pesters you to make purchases that benefits them more than you.

My son recently turned 21 and said he wanted to help in the family’s car rental business, but I had a better idea. I started him off with two minibuses – he can hire them out for picnics or small groups looking to tour the area. My son is getting steady business most days of the week – if we want to expand the fleet, we’re going to Nations Bus!
