When A.J. Nestor’s former brother-in-law convinced her to apply at the bus company where he worked, she did so, but she also applied at Caldwell Transportation.

Caldwell Transportation called back first.

Being between jobs, A.J. didn’t plan to drive a bus for long. In her mind, she was there temporarily. That was back in the nineties. We’ve been lucky enough to have kept A.J. around for a good while.

“Bus driving is just second nature now,” says A.J., “the more you go, the easier it gets.”

Tips from Boise Shuttle Services: Rules of the Road

It is difficult to truly define the "Rules of the Road." Of course, there are the basic rules that we all know (well, most of us), the same ones that we studied so diligently when trying to get our license for the first time. Don't run red lights. Stop at the stop signs. Obey the speed limit. We've known these rules since we were little kids, driving toy cars instead of real ones. However, there is another layer to the Rules of the Road, one that is not written in any manual or included in any DMV test.

The Benefits of a Charter Bus

Technology has changed a lot of things. It has made waves in big places, like medicine, science, education, and defense; simultaneously, it has changed the way we see little, everyday things, like chatting with friends, sharing pictures, and getting information. However, technology is more than just smartphones and robot butlers (we're still waiting on that one).

Recreation is an amazing thing. As humans, we have invented, perfected, and shared so many types of recreation that there is now something for everyone to do, no matter what. We've built theme parks for the thrill seekers. We've created hiking paths for the adventurous. We've created movie theaters for the story-hungry masses. In truth, we've got this "recreation" thing down to a science--but there's one thing that still manages to stump us, trouble us, and hinder our recreational progress, and that is Mother Nature.

Drive, Don't Fly (and Here's Why)

Driving has been a huge part of our lives for generations. From the first, grumbling old cars to place tire on the road, to the modern-day sports cars that purr like kittens, automobiles have grown and changed with us; they are undeniably part of who we are. Who doesn't remember the joy of getting a driver's license, the thrill of buying a first car, the quiet longing with which we all stare at shiny new cars in car lots? It's true--driving has shaped not only our nation and our world but our lives.

Benefits of Hiring a Corporate Bus

Are you a "people person?" Sometimes, this can be a difficult question to answer. After all, on some level, you have to be a "people person" just to survive in the world; if you couldn't have conversations, communicate, collaborate, and make friends, you would be existing in a very narrow and lonely version of reality. Humans rely on other humans.

Some types of entertainment are purely man-made. Going to the movies relies on nothing but the movie-goer and the movie-makers, and, for some of us, a trustworthy popcorn machine. Similarly, going out to dinner isn't exactly reliant on weather, environment, or some act of fate; rather, it all comes down to our biological need to eat and the ability of restaurant chefs to satisfy that need with good food.

Why Use a Charter Bus?

Getting from Point A to Point B is simple enough when you're by yourself. Whether you're walking, driving, biking, parachuting, skydiving, or Pogo-Stick hopping to your destination, it's all up to you. You are responsible for your arrival time, your route, and, of course, your own choice of road trip music. However, things get more complicated when you're transporting a group--and unfortunately, group travel is usually higher-stakes, too. Missing a meeting yourself is one thing, but getting lost on a group trip and making a whole team miss the meeting? Those are dangerous waters.

Coordinating Event Shuttle Services

Transportation has changed the way we see and interact with our world. Not so very long ago, we were at the mercy of the vast and untamed oceans; we traveled only across our own continents, and oftentimes not even that. The world was hardly a world--more like a puzzle with pieces spread out, lonely and quiet, across the carpet. Entire lives were lived without once seeing the lights of a grand European city, the glow of a thousand southeast-summer fireflies, the dance of the Northern Lights, or the majesty of a rain forest.
