Imagine driving from New York City to Los Angles, California. Now take that distance and drive it four times in the same year. That distance, 13,476 miles, is the number of miles an average American drives in a year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
We are a country that loves to travel, and while many of our biggest trips may be taken on an airplane we still cover many miles on the roads of this country. With all of these miles logged, it should come as no surprise that many travelers look for an option other than driving themselves.
Charter Bus Travel Provides a Safe Form of Transportation
A charter bus company can provide comfortable and safe travel to passengers who are looking for someone else to do the driving. When
Did you know that motorcoaches account for about 751 million passenger trips that take place every year? This is an incredible number of trips. Buses are becoming a more popular form of transport for a few reasons.
For one, the explosion of social media websites and apps has led to an increased interest in traveling, thanks to all the great photos people post for their friends to see of where they?ve went. A decrease in car ownership — and interest in driving a car with the rising cost of gas — has also led many people to explore alternative options.
Today, there are plenty of great places you can visit by chartered bus — especially if you live in New York State! Here are a few sites worth checking out.

Mercedes Benz cars owners know the benefits that come with the investment of Mercedes cars. The Mercedes brand offers the highest quality of engineering, safety features, and reliability that makes it one of the most prestigious vehicles. But like other cars, a genuine Mercedes Benz needs the occasional check up to ensure all of its Mercedes Benz parts are working correctly. Here are a few key maintenance tips that will help keep your Mercedes Benz running at top performance.
Check the Fluids
Like any car, routine checks of your Mercedes’ fluids is vital for ensuring the longest life of your vehicle. Check your car’s oil, coolant and washer fluids once a week. Check other fluids such as your power steering, brake, and transmission fuel monthly. It’s important to use the fluids recommended in the Mercedes Benz service owner manual, particularly for breaks, transmission, and steering. Many Mercedes owners switched to synthetic oils, which are more efficient and run better with the Mercedes. Your car should follow a regular oil change schedule, with a switch once every 7,500 miles, or every six months. If you choose to stick with traditional oil, the oil should be changed at least once every 5,000 miles.
A car is nothing without it’s tires. The tires on your Mercedes Benz car should be rotated and balanced once every six months, and inspected for wear or damage regularly. Check the tire pressure regularly, and make sure to maintain proper tired pressure. The inflation chart, which shows the proper tire pressure levels, will likely be located on the side of you car’s driver seat door. Stable tire pressure helps the life of your tires, and also increases your car’s fuel economy.
Wash Your Car
With regular use, a Mercedes car tends to pick up dirt from the road. Weather, dirt, and UV rays, are all potential enemies for your car, and can create lasting damage that may be difficult to erase. Regularly washing Mercedes will help prevent dirt and road chemicals from oxidizing and damaging paint, especially when covered with a layer of new wax. If you plan to drive your Mercedes in the winter months, be sure to wash your vehicle more frequently, as road salt can be damaging to the exterior of your car.
The best way to keep your Mercedes Benz running at top shape is to bring it to your local Mercedes Benz service shop. A Mercedes shop will give your car a complete inspection, and will give you professional suggestions on how to keep your car running smoothly.
We are a society full of obsessions.
Obsessions about sports. Obsessions about social media. Obsessions about music.
While some of these obsessions change from generation to generation, some obsessions that we care the most about remain constant. One of those constant obsessions is cars.
Whether we are a fanatic about driving a new car as frequently as possible or we are obsessed about never spending our money on a brand new car, the vehicles that get us from Point A to Point B are important parts of our lives.
Dealing with most car dealers, however, can be another story. In a time when many consumers feel that the best deal to be found is only available on the internet, and through a computer screen, some lucky buyers find that the best way to satisfy their obsession with cars is
