When hiring a bus with a driver, one of the first questions any bus company will ask is “how many passengers?” so they know which coach or minibus will accommodate all the passengers. You may only have 10 passengers and will be quoted on a 12 seater minibus for your bus hire but you may want to have extra seats in case your passenger numbers rise or you just want the extra room within the bus in which case a 20 seater minibus would be the next size up. This allows passengers to potentially have a double seat each. In the coach range a 48 seater coach may be an option for a group of 30 passengers. There are usually many options in minibus and coach sizes in any bus company fleet. Now you have the vehicle size you want, you now have to research if the bus size is appropriate for the destination/s of your charter hire. Many Sydney areas (especially on the coast or by major rivers) are National Parks and accessibility is limited due to hairpin bends, road width or tare weight limits of the road so the last thing you want to have happen is getting to a point where the bus can go no further and having to walk which could be many kilometres so a solution is to use smaller minibuses. Yes, it’s probably going to cost more than using one large coach but if you want to have your charter be a successful one then this is the only option for inaccessible areas for coaches. A lot of coach companies are not too keen on taking a heavy vehicle coach on unsealed roads and most good bus companies will know Sydney common areas or research before committing to a booking but some may not so it is always best to do your due diligence before booking your next bus hire in Sydney.
