Planning a field trip for school children can be tough. You have to find a suitable place that can accommodate a large group and can offer some educational value to the experience. One of the biggest things you have to worry about is transporting a large number of some very precious cargo.
If you’ve finally worked out the kinks, gotten permission slips and money from the kids, and scheduled a time to go, using a charter bus might be a good option for rounding up all the kids and getting them where they need to go. The biggest concern you probably have is safety, but according to government data charter buses are some of the safest vehicles on the road.
Charter bus rentals are also often equipped with amenities like nice seats, bathrooms, en
Many Americans rely on buses every day for transportation, but few people really take the time to find out more about these vehicles. How much do you really know about buses? Test your knowledge with these fun facts:
- The word “bus” comes from the Latin word “omnibus,” which means “for all.” Over time, “omnibus” became shortened — although its original form seems to be more applicable for its purpose.
- Yellow school buses are widely recognized today, and it’s hard to imagine a time when they didn’t exist. But they actually aren’t very old at all; the first yellow school bus appeared in 1939.
- Charter bus services are becoming more popular around the world, and they are used t
An Arizona politician describes the horror in young illegal immigrant children’s eyes: “I was able to actually see some of the children in the buses and the fear on their faces. This is not compassion.” The only problem is that they weren’t immigrant children. What congressional candidate Adam Kwasman mistook for a bus full of children waiting to see an immigrant judge was actually a group of children from the YMCA.
Are Feds Trying To Throw Off People Like Kwasman?
“It appears that many illegal immigrants in California are being transported by federal agents via van caravans instead of large Department of Homeland Security (DHS) buses,” Fox News writes. “Dropping off illegal immigrants from vans, rather than buses, may serve to draw less attention and scrutiny from loca
Buying a car is not as simple as just looking for the car model you want, finding a dealer that has it, and purchasing it — it takes a lot more legwork than that.
You have to compare used cars to new ones, look for experienced car dealers to work with, consider whether you want to find used cars to purchase, or if new ones are your preference.
Most importantly, you have to consider how much you can spend. There’s no point in reading new Fiat Panda reviews, or about a brand new BMW, if you can’t afford it.
In fact, you will have to look into how to finance a car carefully, and know how to secure your loan. Here are a few tips on applying for a
Rim repair and maintenance are essential for keeping healthy tires. Rims are very durable but can become damaged in accidents and do suffer from regular wear and tear. Rims need to be well maintained because they have direct effects on the condition of the tires on a car, and tires that are in poor or compromised condition can be very dangerous. If your rims do become cracked or bent, you should take them to alloy wheel repair specialists for rim repair immediately.
Damaged rims can result in a tire to lose its ability to hold air, air leakage, and can even lead to tire blow outs. Any of these can lead to tragic consequences. More than half of passenger cars that were in accidents were i
A specialized car repair shop can often be the best choice for foreign car owners, especially depending on the brand. There are approximately 701,100 auto maintenance services across the US according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, it is extremely important to bring foreign cars to mechanics who specifically work with those types of vehicles. This is because most foreign vehicles are built with custom parts, which means they need specialized repair, maintenance, and care. Audi and Volkswagen are two very popular automobile brands that should be brought to a car repair shop who understands their parts the best.
Audi maintenance and Volkswagen maintenance both re
There is no better feeling than owning your own car. The difference between having to bum rides off of friends or taking the bus to getting a great deal from new or used car dealers on your first ride is like night and day. Who doesn’t have that dream of owning their own car and driving off into the sunset with their favorite music playing as the wind whips their hair around?
Unfortunately, while owning a car can make everything from getting to work to dating to taking a vacation easier, it isn’t without it’s drawbacks, particularly where money is concerned. On average, according to FiveCentNickel.com, Americans will spend $1200 per year per vehicle on car maintainence. Surely there has to be some way to knock that price down?
Owning a vehicle is a necessity in most parts of North America. Since we lack stellar public transportation systems, we need to rely on our personal automobiles to get us to and from work, to the market for groceries, and to meet up with friends after a stressful day to grab a pint at the local bar. In short, without a car in running condition, even the most mundane parts of life will be near impossible.
Of course, keeping your car in tip-top shape is not always easy, not when you consider how much that will cost you on an annual basis. According to Five Cent Nickel, a popular online guide to cutting costs, the average car owner will spend upwards of $1200 per vehicle each year on regular maintenance and repairs of their car. Oftentimes, saving on servicing your car is just about finding an honest au
Each year, according to New York Daily News, more than 15 million used and new car sales are carried out in the United States. The popularity of owning our vehicles is nothing new. Since Henry Ford revolutionized the production process and started the Age of the Automobile, cars have just been in our blood.
Whether you’re looking at Nissan car specials or you’re looking for your first car from used car dealers, buying a car is going to cost you a pretty penny. However, even with that being said, if you learn how to navigate the often tricky w
In spite of negative stereotypes and misconceptions, bikers can have big hearts, too! Bikers are not just about tattoos, leather, and chains. In fact, just last month, a group of motorcyclists organized a ride to protest the arrest of a U.S. marine who was captured near the Mexican border. Can bikers be charitable, and why do some experts believe that they should be watching out their own backs first?

“Sargent Andrew Tahmooressi drove his truck into Tijuana not knowing he had crossed the Mexican border with firearms,” KMTV reports. “All of the guns were legally registered in the United States.
