“This is a great option for parents as well as the students. My son attends Gettysburg College. In his first year we spent more money in gas, tolls, hotels and wear and tear on our car. We used the bus the first time to send him back after Thanksgiving and everything went great. This year we were able to book him for the round trip from Gettysburg to NY and back to Gettysburg. I just found out that BreakShuttle has added the return trip after the winter break. Awesome. Please keep adding more trips.” – Marie O. (on Facebook)
BreakShuttle Makes Marketing Easy
The BreakShuttle team brings years of transportation marketing, graphic design and digital strategy experience to our partner schools. We will work with you to understand all of the communication and advertising channels available on your campus and create customized digital and print collateral aimed at both students and parents. From orientation to spring break, we will provide newsletter copy, press releases, social media posts, flyers, powerpoint slides, CCTV ads, posters and whatever else will help us spread the word at your school.
Charter Travel: Keeping Your Students Safe
Safety is a top priority in college and university communities. Commercial buses in the United States have a safety record that exceeds that of any other mode of surface transportation. A Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Center for Transportation Analysis showed that charter buses are 46 times safer than driving an automobile.
BreakShuttle contracts reputable charter companies with years of experience. They are recognized leaders in the industry with satisfactory safety and breakdown records in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration database.
A Transportation Option That Works Towards Your Sustainability Goals
In an effort to become more responsible global citizens, campuses have identified sustainability as one of their top priorities. Many colleges and universities have initiatives to foster healthy living and reduce the strain they cause on their local environment. This concern often extends to the environmental impacts associated with school sponsored activities and services.
In addition to being the safest, charter buses are also the greenest mode of motorized transportation. The Union of Concerned Scientists released a report titled “Getting There Greener: The Guide To Your Lower Carbon Vacation” in which they recommended going by bus. It points out that “A couple traveling on a motorcoach will generate nearly 50 percent less global warming pollution than they would driving a hybrid car.”
