Bus Rental in Chennai

Chennai is one of the most developed cities in India. In recent years, it has given stiff competition to Bangalore as an emerging IT hub in the country. It has seen large scale migration of IT talent and start up owners to the city, owing to its good housing, excellent job prospects, great educational institutions and good quality of life. But dealing with Chennai traffic is a different story.
Though the city has largely regulated its traffic situation over the years, it cannot be denied that there are more cars on the roads than are feasible. More cars get added to the roads every single day. This not only burdens the existing road network, but also increases the pollution profile of the city. Chennai routinely figures on the lists of the cities with high pollution. Adding a fleet of cars for a group is hardly a viable solution: so why not hire a bus for rent in Chennai when a group needs to travel?

The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown several industries into turmoil with multiple lockdowns happening and being enforced through many parts of India. With lockdown orders and inter and intrastate movement getting relaxed, people are looking at hiring buses for several reasons. From returning to their loved ones back home or getting back to their workplaces, people are slowly moving towards a sense of normality when it comes to travel. And with such booking requests coming in, redBus would like to shed some light on some of the safety measures that bus service providers follow before and after every booking:

Mandatory use of Masks: Passengers and staff are not permitted to enter the bus without using a protective mask. The bus staff and passengers are encouraged to keep their masks at all times during their journey.

Deep cleaning: Buses are subjected to a series of deep cleaning procedures to ensure that every vehicle (Tempo, bus, etc.) is disinfected after every trip.

Temperature Checks: Along with the passengers, every staff member on board undergoes regular temperature checks. The bus staff is checked periodically before every trip as well.

Blankets and Linens: Passengers are advised to carry their blankets and linens as the bus service provider would not provide the same to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Hand Sanitizers: Every vehicle that's available for hire through redBus comes equipped with hand sanitisers.

Advisories: Along with several notifications that redBus provides its passengers to ensure that they are kept safe, passengers are also requested to stay at home if they exhibit any symptom associated with coronavirus.

The pandemic is something new that we might not have experienced before. And it doesn't look like that pandemic is going to go away anytime soon. You can ensure that you stay safe while also keeping your neighbours' safety in mind. You can even click here to find out about the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) status, precautions to follow, important state helpline numbers, and make sure you read about Safety+ and more with redBus.

Bus Hire/Rent in Chennai: The Best Solution

It is up to all of us to reduce our carbon footprint as much possible. Reducing the vehicular load on the roads is important. To this end, some people carpool to work or hire cars and divide the group into threes and fours. But collectively, this results in a lot of fuel being consumed and a lot of air pollution being generated. Instead, try taking a bus for hire in Chennai.
Any group of people with a shared interest and same destination loves to hang out together. The group can bond over talking, singing or watching a movie in the luxury bus as they proceed on their journey. Logistically too, a group is better off being together when going to the same destination. Everybody leaves and reaches at the same time, so there are no delays or waiting periods. Besides, one bus transporting the group as opposed to several cars doing the same job, results in a much safer and ecologically-conscious journey.
You can easily hire/rent a bus in Chennai for groups comprising 15 to 50 people for a variety of reasons as listed below:

  • Corporate Tours, offsites, get togethers, conferences, etc.
  • Office pick up and drop offs
  • Sightseeing tours
  • Marriage parties
  • Pilgrimage and religious tours
  • Holidays
  • Picnics
  • Excursions, whether for a few hours or overnight
  • Weekend tours/treks for groups
