How did it start:
Bus.com was started off by two individuals, Wold and Kyle, based in Montreal. They were fed up with the amount of hassle one has to go through while booking a charter bus. They wanted to come up with something that would make group trips via charter buses easier and better. And this is how they churned out Bus.com. Bus.com was started in the year 2014. They soon realised that much like them, there were other people who wanted a similar service. They gradually worked on the concept and came out with a full-proof quick fix. Bus.com is located in Montreal but it operates throughout North America.
Booking made easy:

Immediately you will get a form, fill up the form with all the required information. Post this step you will get a quote which will help you decide to choose the bus or not. Also, it’s not Bus.com who provides the bus. Bus.com partners with licensed charter bus companies to fulfil trips.
