Take The Rhythm On The Road: How CharterUP Keeps Marching Bands On Beat During Travel

Published August 8, 2023

Whether you’re leading the band at your alma mater or competing in a collegiate competition, there’s nothing quite like being part of a marching band. All those bustling, bounding strides send sparks right through your veins — but getting your performance energy up can be hard when you’re far from home and stuck in transit for hours.

CharterUP takes the burden off of marching bands regarding group travel by providing reliable and comfortable transportation and handling the logistics of planning the trip, allowing band directors and chaperones to focus on what’s important — the students and their performances.

Easing the Burden of Travel for Marching Bands

As exciting as it can be to join a marching band, traveling with one can be a daunting task. From hauling heavy instruments to coordinating band members’ schedules, the challenges of traveling with a marching band can be numerous. But perhaps the greatest struggle lies in transportation. The logistical nightmare of fitting an entire band and their equipment into a vehicle, let alone multiple, can be overwhelming.

Plentiful Space for Instruments and Gear

CharterUP’s versatile bus fleet takes the precarious Jenga-style maneuvering out of storing instruments and gear. With ample room for equipment and dedicated storage compartments, bands can ensure their belongings arrive safely and securely at their destination.

Roomier, Comfortable Seating

Marching band uniforms are beautiful works of art — and are also incredibly cumbersome to travel in. Charter buses offer plenty of room for your entire group to spread out and relax, with spacious, comfortable seating that makes even long journeys feel like a breeze. Boasting onboard amenities such as WiFi, restrooms, power outlets, premium leather seats and more, your band can relax and save their energy for the performance. Whether you’re staying in town or need a charter bus from Portland to Los Angeles, we’ve got you covered.

Reliable On-Time Performance with CharterUP

Marching bands need a reliable transportation partner that offers ample storage, full visibility and control over reservations, transparent bus pricing, and comfortable travel that ensures band members arrive rested and energized instead of cranky and sore. CharterUP will get you there on time with real-time tracking and 24/7 support for any last-minute changes.

CharterUP offers both private charters and contracted services, ideal for the band on the hunt for a new, reliable transportation partner. Try it out with a one-time charter to see how well we’ll work together.
