Ventura County Destinations and Fillmore Charter Buses

Fillmore Area Transit (a Fillmore bus company) is proud to introduce our new travel recommendation segment to our blog. These travel blogs will be posted on a weekly basis and they will recommend various places in the county for you to explore. It will also provide ideas for trips that you can plan using our charter bus services. This blog will focus on Ventura bus trips and locations.

Ventura has a lot of interesting locations to explore and it was even listed as one of the best places to live in america by Men’s Journal. The area itself exudes a pervasive surf culture that is becoming increasingly rare in modern California. Some local buildings also feature murals from local artists, and these works add to the distinct vibe of the area.

Ventura’s Main Street is known as a fantastic destination for group travel. It provides access to a wide variety of restaurants and bars. Prominent choices among these are the Anacapa Brewery and the Saloon. These places provide an authentic local experience, and they are perfect destinations for charter bus rentals.

A little farther off of main street, you will find places like the Tavern, Banzai Marina, and Bombay Bar & Grill. All of these places represent the rapid growth of Ventura’s burgeoning nightlife. Because these destinations involve alcohol, a bus rental service can provide safety and convenience for you and your friends. With one of our charter buses, you won’t have to worry about finding a designated driver.

If the bar scene does not suit you, you may be interested in exploring the Ventura beaches. From any of these beautiful beaches, you can see the Channel Islands National Park. Also present is the Pier which provides an excellent view of the ocean and the Ventura FairGrounds. The Ventura Harbor is also an excellent destination for the entire family.

If you are interested in surfing, surfer’s point can provide excellent waves for you to enjoy. The site which is located just outside of the fairgrounds can be the perfect destination for a day trip, and when you are ready to go, our bus will be waiting to take you to your next destination. This is the type of convenience that makes bus travel so great.

If you are interested in planning a trip to any of these destinations, feel free to contact us for a free quote. We offer a variety of vehicles ranging from a full sized school bus to a small van. Our charter bus services are perfect for corporate events, field trips, weddings, and more.

Exploring Ventura with a Charter Bus

Our example trip would start with an early morning trip to surfer’s point on one of our charter buses. The bus would pick you up in the Fillmore area and take you to the beach at around six A.M.. After enjoying the waves for a couple of hours, the bus would then take your group to one of the many fantastic restaurants in the area, such as Cafe Zack’s.

Post lunch, you would then be transported to the downtown area for refreshments. This would be the time where you would enjoy a nice cold beer at a location like Anacapa Brewery. Your group would then be left to explore the main street area, which includes a wide variety of shops and historical sites. After absorbing all of the local sights, you would then have the option to travel to a dinner location.

For dinner, you would have a wide variety of options available, with cuisines ranging from sushi to classic American steakhouse fare. After your meal, take your group to the beach and observe a beautiful Southern California sunset from the Ventura Pier. This area is home to some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, and you will never regret staying to watch one.

After a busy day, your group will no doubt be tired, and to make things easier for you, we will drive every passenger directly to their homes. We are proud to offer this kind of service, and we will always strive to improve our customers comfort and convenience. There is nothing worse than driving while tired, and it can also be dangerous. So instead of struggling to stay awake while driving down the 101, take a nap or talk with your friends and family on one of our buses.

Benefits of Charter Bus Utilization

Bus rentals might seem more expensive than driving individual cars to an event, but in reality, they are not. This is due to several factors such as individual fuel economy, passengers per car, and net emissions. These factors create a compelling argument for the benefits of public transportation.

In terms of fuel economy, you can not think of efficiency solely in terms of your individual fuel consumption. You have to think of it in terms of fuel spent per passenger transported. For example, 50 people driving individual vehicles will consume more fuel than a single 50 passenger bus (assuming they are not electric). For this reason, it is often better to look at the collective fuel consumption when determining the efficiency of a trip.

Passengers per car is another metric that has to be considered, but for reasons wholly separate from fuel consumption. This metric has to do with convenience factors such as parking and arrival time. It is a lot easier to schedule the arrival of a single bus than it is to try to direct a fleet of vehicles.

Net emissions is another important factor to look at when considering transportation options. A single large bus might produce more pollution than a single consumer vehicle, but it may make up for that by encouraging people to carpool as opposed to adding fifty plus other vehicles to the road. This is where public transportation options like buses make up for their individual emissions. Small steps like this can help us reduce our impact and help preserve the planet for future generations.

In summary, bus rentals provide a convenient option for group travel and events. They are also beneficial for your expenses and reducing your fuel consumption. A rental bus on the road also reduces traffic and parking issues that your event may be plagued with. Last but not least, participating in public transportation options is considered to be a net positive in terms of net emissions.

All of these factors together paint a compelling argument as to why a charter bus is not only a convenient option, but it is also a responsible choice, both fiscally and environmentally. After looking at these facts, we hope that we can make your next event an easy and seamless one. After all, every event is better enjoyed without the added stress of figuring out transportation, and we are here to make things simpler for you. After all, your satisfaction is our primary concern at the Fillmore Area Transit Corporation.
