An exciting part of the college game day experience is seeing your favorite athletes. Many fans arrive at the game extra early just to watch the team arrive and enter the arena or stadium. While you likely drove a car or booked a commercial flight to attend your favorite game, how do college sports teams travel?
Depending on the size of the school and the distance to the game, your favorite team likely arrived by charter bus. At STM Driven, we complete over 2300 charter bus trips a year, many of them transporting your favorite football and basketball teams to away games in other states.
How Do College Sports Teams Travel in Comfort?
Your team needs a worry-free ride, ensuring that they arrive rested and ready for the game. Athletes, the Athletic Director, football coaches, basketball coaches, and staff travel better when they’re all together. A professional charter bus rental with skilled drivers provides the ultimate in riding experience from pick-up to destination and back again for your entire college sports program.
Regardless of whether the game is across town or across state lines, charter bus services from STM Driven offer flexible pick-up and drop-off options to make college sports trips as convenient as possible.
Plus, modern charter buses feature comfortable reclining seats with plenty of arm and leg room so even the most oversized college football athlete can relax and enjoy the ride. Take along all your personal and team equipment in the bus’ storage compartment, while passengers enjoy electric outlets and WiFi. And of course, clean restrooms are a must for any long trip.

For example, a group of 40 passengers can travel from Chicago to New York City by chartered bus (about $175 per person), just over half the cost of flying economy commercial (about $300 per person).
