Metropolitan Shuttle Offering Dependable Charter Buses for “March for Our Lives” Events
Leading national charter bus company is committed to transporting marchers to and from events scheduled nationwide on March 24.
SILVER SPRING, Md., March 5, 2018 — Metropolitan Shuttle®, the nation’s leading charter bus reservation service, is providing charter bus services on March 24 to transport people to and from the March for Our Lives events planned in Washington, D.C. and other locations nationwide.
As many as 500,000 people are expected to attend the March for Our Lives event in the nation’s capital, which will feature student speakers, musical performances and video tributes to the victims of the recent school shootings in Parkland, Florida, organizers said.
More than 100 other March for Our Lives events are planned in other cities across the country, from Los Angeles to New York City, so the attendee count for all the marches is expected to be in the millions, officials said.
Metropolitan Shuttle is a national charter bus company with extensive experience transporting large groups to and from marches. The company has been hired by groups of attendees of the following events in the past year:
- Women’s March
- Raleigh Pride
- March for Life
- People’s Climate March
- National Pride March
- March for Science
- Black Lives Matter March in Seattle.
“Metropolitan Shuttle supports Americans’ rights to freely assemble and demonstrate on issues they deem important,” says Glenn Orloff, Chief Executive Officer of Metropolitan Shuttle. “We are further committed to providing affordable and reliable charter bus transportation to March for Our Lives events nationwide, helping ensure attendees don’t have to worry about how they will get to and from the events.”
Marches, such as those planned later this month to advocate for tougher gun laws, attract thousands of people, therefore making it difficult to locate the bus attendees chartered when they are ready to gather for departure. Metropolitan Shuttle makes getting real-time updates on the location of your charter bus easier with MetroTrac®, an innovative smartphone app that provides a direct connection between patrons chartering a bus and the driver and vehicle.
The MetroTrac® app is available on the iTunes App Store and Android. Get more information about the MetroTrac® app.
