    How Shofur’s Long-Term Shuttling Services Could Help

    Booking a bus for a day is often a great idea. You can take a day trip with friends, head out to a retreat, or attend an office party without worrying about driving. But did you know that Shofur can also help you organize recurring trips?

    You might want to consider a recurring shuttle service if you’re in charge of transportation for a college campus, a place of worship, an office, or maybe even a film set. But whatever your needs may be, Shofur can put together a shuttle service that will keep everyone moving seamlessly from one destination to the next.

    Keep reading to learn more about the types of shuttles we can provide and who can most benefit from shuttling services!

    Health & Safety

    Before we talk specifics, let’s talk about health and safety. Shofur is dedicated to making sure that passengers can feel comfortable during every bus ride. We organize every trip with sanitation and social distancing measures in mind, based on the CDC’s guidelines for bus providers. When it comes time for you to book your shuttle service, we’ll work with you to make sure that your passengers can ride confidently. Let us know if you’d like to add special provisions to your contract, like mask mandates or temperature checks, and we’ll make sure all safety precautions are in place before your service begins.

    Don’t feel comfortable with a shuttle service just yet? No worries—Shofur will be here for you when it’s time to get back in the swing of things, ready to perform any of the following services:

    For places of business

    Getting employees to work in a way that’s efficient and low-stress can be a challenge, especially when everyone is trying to be conscious of social distancing. So if your workers need to be on-site but they’re nervous about how they’ll get to and from work, Shofur can help.

    With a regular shuttling service from Shofur, you’ll get as many buses as you need, all of which can be outfitted with your choice of amenities. Reclining seats and air conditioning will keep your employees comfortable, while WiFi access will let employees browse their favorite sites (or check up on work emails) while they travel.

    Your shuttle can go anywhere it’s needed: nearby neighborhoods, local public transportation stops (to bridge the gap between a train ride and the last mile or two to work), or temporary offsite parking lots, all with your workplace as the final destination.

    For colleges & universities

    Students and teachers can have a hard time getting around campus with only a few minutes between classes. And if they don’t live in a dorm, students can have difficulties getting to campus in the first place. Plus, there always seems to be some sort of construction happening on campus that’s likely to put a parking lot out of service for a little while.

    A campus shuttle system can be a great temporary or long-term solution. Shofur will work with your college or university to develop the most efficient routes and determine what time intervals are best for each stop.

    You can send your shuttle to dorms, nearby student apartment complexes, cafeterias, offices, and classroom buildings, all depending on your unique transportation needs.

    For sports teams

    Looking at a busy season and wondering how you’ll shuttle your players, staff, and coaches from your home base to away games? We’ve got you.

    First, we’ll figure out how many buses you need to accommodate everyone and build a custom fleet just for you. Onboard features can include WiFi to keep everyone entertained during long drives, extra legroom so that tall players can stay comfortable, and extra storage space to house all of your luggage and equipment.

    Then, we’ll take a look at your schedule for the season and figure out when we need to send out your buses. From there, all you have to do is prepare your players for the season ahead; we’ll handle the driving.

    Your buses will be ready and waiting for you when it’s time to head out to away games, offsite practices, or team-building excursions. Whether you need your fleet once a week or once a month, we’ll make sure you get a service you can count on.

    For religious organizations

    Do any members of your congregation need help getting to your services? If so, Shofur can help make sure that everyone can participate in in-person services.

    We’ll send your shuttle right to the homes of your congregation members and make sure they’re transported promptly to your place of worship. And if you hold regular services or group gatherings throughout the week, we can service those, too! Just let your reservation specialist know how often you need your shuttle, and we’ll work with you to create a custom plan.

    If you need to accommodate members with mobility concerns, be sure to ask your specialist about an ADA-accessible shuttle, and we’ll make sure your bus has all of the features your group needs.

    For movie and television production sets

    During the few weeks (or few months) it takes to wrap up your production, you’ll definitely find yourself in need of transportation—sometimes just across a studio lot, and sometimes to offsite filming locations or distant parking lots. No one wants to lug heavy camera equipment around on foot, and we know that sometimes a small golf cart just won’t cut it. That’s where we come in.

    Let us know where your production will take place, when you’ll need to venture out of your regular production area, and about how many people you’ll need to transport, and we’ll be sure to draw up a shuttle service that will keep everyone moving freely between sets, cars, trailers, lots, and other necessary stops. If you’ve been shooting outside, your shuttle can also provide some nice relief from the elements with air conditioning, heat, and reclining seats to help everyone stay relaxed.

    We regularly provide services to filming hotspots like NYC, Los Angeles, or Atlanta. But if you’re filming in a not-so-famous city, don’t worry—we can get you there, too.

    For senior living communities

    Going out and about is essential for mental wellbeing, whether you’re just taking a walk in the park or running errands to keep the house running smoothly. But, we know that many seniors might not feel comfortable driving, even on quick trips. If you’re hoping to help residents at your senior living community get out of their homes and get some fresh air, we’re here to help!

    Book a regular shuttle service to stop by your senior living community and transport residents to grocery stores, libraries, parks, fitness classes, and events, so that everyone can participate with no driving stress. Need ADA-accessible features on your shuttle? No problem for us!
