shuttle or bus companies near simsbury or enfield?

Hi everyone! I'm getting married at st patrick's church in enfield and having the reception at the riverview in simsbury. Since we are having many out of town guests, I may get a shuttle or bus service to bring guests from hotel to church to reception, etc. Does anyone have any recommendations of companies to use? I'm also wondering if anyone has considered renting a school bus and what the price difference would look like. Any ideas? Ps. I'm trying to plan all this from out of state so any help from you local CT ladies is Much appreciated! Thank you!

    We are using DATTCO out of New Britain for our shuttles.  Compared with the other companies I contacted - mostly limo companies - they were the most economical option.   Hope that helps.

    I am doing a school bus from First Charter.  I found that the school bus is a pretty big price difference.  I was told by Dattco that they will not rent their school buses to adults.

    I'll have to try First Student again. I contacted them twice and got no response.

    I filled out the quote form on the First Charter/Student website and they called me.

    I've been looking into the same thing...most shuttle buses are pretty similar in price (they hold about 40 ppl so would have to do a few runs). The school buses are literally half the price. If you don't care about the "look" of a school bus and are budget conscious, that is definitely the way to go. the cheapest ones I have contacted have been Dattco, Carriage Limo and First Charter. Good luck!!
