Philadelphia School Trip Transportation

When you plan a Philadelphia school field trip, adding a charter bus can be the missing link!

Field trips are a great way to make student learning come to life. From visiting the Declaration of Independence to a visit to Independence Hall, walking in the footsteps of historical leaders along the streets of the city of brotherly love, or participating in tours guided by the teachers that have a passion for the subject at hand, booking a charter bus puts you in the places that can change lives.

David Thomas Trailways has been providing Philadelphia charter bus services for over 40 years and in that time we have worked with many of the local school districts, private, and charter schools to help their groups traveling become a world-class learning experience. Our fleet of vehicles offers you options when it comes to bus types as well, from charter bus rentals to school buses, minibus rentals to a coach bus, we give educators the flexibility to accommodate groups of any size. Whether you choose a bus in Philadelphia or decide to take a group trip to Washington DC, we offer free quotes to help make the trip a success.

No one does Philadelphia bus rentals like we do and no one knows field trips better. As a local provider who has worked with thousands of educators, we are here to help you take learning out of the classroom and into the world!

Science and Learning

To say that there is a lot of learning opportunities available to Philadelphia students would be an understatement. Whether you are visiting local historical sites, science venues, or museums, or heading to DC to the Smithsonian experiences or the capitol, nothing makes learning real like standing in the places where it happened. Our team of experts has been helping local educators for over 40 years to use charter buses for trips near and far. Let us help you take learning on the road.

Athletic Travel

Did the football team make the playoffs? Is the band headed to a parade? Where there is competition, there is travel and no one knows team travel better than we do. Charter buses offer a higher level of safety than school buses and our fleet gives you the ability to choose the right equipment based on the trip length, roads that will be traveled, and the amenities your team wants/needs.

Clubs & Teams

Whether your chess team is headed to a tournament or your FBLA chapter is going to be attending a national event, charter buses offer you the safety and comfort you want and need. Let us help you plan a charter bus rental, for groups as small as 8 people, which includes all of our service, safety, and experience.

What our clients had to say…

I can NOT… give enough praises for this bus company. I have been using them since 2016 and it has never failed. The office staff and the bus driver Mr.Harry has been an absolute delight. The driver is always early and courtesy. My group loves our driver so much that they ask for him prior to confirming they are going on my trip. If you are looking for a bus company this is it! I have used both the 40 and 47 passenger and haven’t had any issues. I hope Jaime my trip contact and driver Mr. Harry stays for years to come…

Bri JTrip Coordinator

David Thomas has driven for my collegiate lacrosse team for the past 13 years. This weekend we are on a trip to Pittsburgh. Our driver Dennis got us here safe and is always so accommodating. He has been our driver the past two seasons and is a great representative of the company. Recommend this company!

Dana LTeam Coach

Robert Wongus transported our school volleyball team to an away game. He was a great driver — on time, friendly, and even came in and cheered our girls on. I will definitely request him for future trips.
