Coach Bus Events and Safety Restrictions

Luxury limo and coach buses are an incredibly popular addition to a full fleet and are used for a variety of different events and long-term uses. If you’re hosting an event, tour or trip that requires the use of a coach bus, you’re guaranteed to show your guests, celebrities or party-goers a truly luxurious and memorable good time – especially with a coach bus provided by Coachwest.

However, there are some important things to remember when using a limo bus, for both you and your customers or clients. In this blog, Coachwest takes a look at some standard safety tips to make sure everyone is safe during whatever event you have planned.

Be Mindful Of Alcohol Consumption

With any event or party that involves a luxury vehicle that can transport multiple people, keeping an eye on alcohol consumption is important. A luxury bus is no different. If the event the bus is being used for is going to involve alcohol consumption, then everyone needs to make sure that they stay mindful of how much they drink and how they behave on the bus.

We all know that alcohol inhibits your senses, making it harder to move around, which is especially dangerous in a moving vehicle. If possible, have someone at the event other than the driver of your bus to act as a chaperone and maintain a reasonable level of safe behavior from other party-goers.

Make Sure You Keep a Headcount

Whatever kind of event you’re planning to use a coach bus for, it’s important to keep an accurate headcount of your guests. Once again, if alcohol is involved then this is particularly important, as you’re more likely to lose group members who wander off in an inebriated state.

If you’re using the bus for an event that involves passengers under the legal age of drinking, especially smaller children, then keeping a headcount is extremely important. If you’re the event organizer, the safety of your party goers – children or otherwise – is your responsibility.

Stay Seated When the Bus Is Moving

Luxury coach buses are often modified in all sorts of different ways and don’t always have standard seating throughout the inside. This is the beauty of a luxury coach, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a mind for safety.

When the vehicle is moving, especially if traveling a long distance, passengers should remain seated. A luxury coach is as susceptible to accidents as any other vehicle, and anyone on their feet is likely to be seriously hurt.

Let Your Driver Do Their Job

Speaking of safety, passengers should also avoid distracting whoever is driving. If you’re hiring a driver for your event, then they have a job that they need to do. Distracting a driver, especially of a larger vehicle, is dangerous and should be avoided as much as possible.

If someone is designated as the driver, they should understand the responsibility they have, as well as hold the right experience in driving larger vehicles.
