Some People Say

Mike from On the Bus was our fabulous driver during our small family wedding in Tapawera, Nelson. He was absolutely fantastic to deal with - really quick to respond to messages, super friendly, very flexible, and incredibly professional. We rode in Stanley, a lovely comfortable 22-seater bus, and were safely delivered to and from a range of spots. It was a real pleasure to have Mike as a key part of our special day - would thoroughly recommend others follow suit! Thanks Mike and Stanley : )

Thank you for the bus service you provided recently for the Club Reunion Committee. We certainly appreciated your service considering the driveway you had to negotiate!  All the Best for the future.   
Sharon G, Motueka

Thanks a million for the bus service you provided for our Big Day.  The guests just LOVED your buses and despite the minor glitch with venue instructions (our fault) everyone got to the forest and had an amazing day.  Thanks again - wonderful customer service !
