Tour companies, travel groups, clubs, and other special interest parties of all sizes have come to rely on Cardinal Buses for their group transportation needs. With a variety of motorcoach and minicoach models in our fleet, we provide unmatched amenities and driver experience to make your group tour seamless.
From long-distance travel to multi-stop tours, our team is well-versed in the planning and logistics needs for group tours. Based out of the Midwest, we offer service throughout the contiguous US and Canada and have been providing group transportation to the nation’s most iconic landmarks, as well as quaint small towns, since 1923. That’s a lot of tours!

Our coaches include features like WiFi access, electrical outlets, DVD players with monitors, reclining seats, as well as PA systems and large panoramic windows for enjoying and narrating points of interest in the scenery along the way.

That’s the beauty of chartering a bus: we come to you. We can pick you up wherever you want and take you directly to your destination. But, understand that we have to be able to drive a 45’ long motorcoach that is 8’ wide and 12’ tall. So, we can’t fit everywhere.
We do travel to Canada frequently, however we do not travel to Mexico.
Yes, all of our motor coaches except the 24 and 33 passenger bus rental are restroom equipped.
All of our coaches are equipped with video monitors, AM FM radios, PA systems, reclining seats, individual reading lights, and of course air conditioning. Feel free to bring your favorite videos to watch while traveling.
Driver gratuity is customary and the amount customer’s discretion.
Drivers normally take care of their own meals, though if you wish to include the driver in group meals that is appreciated. Groups typically take care of the driver’s lodging, as it is beneficial to have the driver at the same hotel.
