There is a split deposit with $100.00 going towards the bill and an additional $100.00 cleaning / damages deposit for a total of $200.00 with the balance due 14 days prior to the event. If this is last minute or you are collecting from the others joining you on the bus, the balance must be paid in cash when the driver picks you up.
When you hire one of our Party Buses for a private event, there is no sales tax, however you should tip the driver 15 - 20% as per industry standards.
The times are as stated on the contract. Let's say you have a six hour package from 8:00 pm - 2:00 am. The bus will arrive usually a few minutes early but your charges start at the scheduled time of 8:00 pm. At the end of the event you must leave the last stop early enough to be done and off the bus by that scheduled time or you will have to pay overtime charges as stated on the contract.
Of course you can, that is what we are all about, keeping you safe while you party.
All five of our buses have aux imputs in the sound systems!
There are minimum consecutive hours required depending upon the vehicle and location of service. As an example; wedding shuttle service from 3:00 - 6:00 pm, then return trips 10:00 - 1:00 am, you will have to meet the minimum consecutive BOTH times as we now have additional empty traveling times and the vehicle is not available for other bookings.
Bachelor / Bachelorette parties or pub crawls in the evening, the bus will stay with you all night keeping your coolers and personal effects safe on the bus while you are partying around town so you will not be able to split the times.
As you are probobly aware, both Illinois and Wisconsin are smoke free, and since the majority of our runs are less than 30 minutes at a time it should not be a problem. For the longer trips such as Brewers, Bucks or Packers games, we make pit stops for both the bathroom and smokers breaks.
As it states on the tickets page: You will NOT recieve tickets in the mail, your receipt after your purchase is your ticket and the drivers will have a check list with your name. Have ID ready when boarding Bus.
Yes you can and if the driver leaves they close up the bus. Just remember, even though for the most part our buses are safe, there is always the chance a theif will get in just like in your own vehicle and Y Drive is not responsible if that happens.
Unless there is a mechanical break down, the bus you arrived on is the bus you leave on as the driver has your name on his check list. If you make other arrangements back, please let the driver know so they are not waiting for you after the event. Please remember, 30 minutes after the last song at Alpine or last out at Miller Park and we leave. If we wait longer than that it will take two hour to get out of the parking lot, so be prompt for a great end to your event.
As a matter of fact we do. We have wedding and birthday party packages where we can decorate the bus for the occasion, bring a professional DJ & Karaoke service, Photographers, Wedding Officients, food & cake. We make the whole party easy.
We have chosen to not install bathrooms on our party buses to save room and extra expenses that we would have to pass on to our customers. The majority of our runs are less than 30 minutes at a time and each destination has a bathroom. For the longer trips such as Brewers, Bucks or Packers games, we make pit stops for both the bathroom and smokers breaks.
If time allows, the bus is available and you are close to our facility, you can make arrangements to decorte the bus or you can use part of your contracted time at your location as long as your decor does not interfere with the drivers view for safety reasons and that you do not cause any damage to the vehicle.
Depending upon the time of year and how far in advance you are booking, we can give you 24 - 72 hours to decide. Once you request a contract you will have two weeks maximum to return the contract with the deposit in order to book your bus. It is imperative to contact Y Drive if you are decide to cancel the contract ASAP as we are holding a vehicle for you once this contract is created. If you fail to notify us of your cancellation you will be charged a 50% improper termination fee.
