Company Description

Bus.com began less than 3 years ago with the intention of improving the entirety of the transportation industry through buses. In just a few years we’ve grown to a team of 50 passionate individuals, participated in Y Combinator (the world’s most prestigious accelerator, look it up if you’re unfamiliar!), raised over $6.5 million from some of the most experienced venture capitalists (BMW, Jackson Square Ventures, and Real Ventures), and worked with incredible organizations (Uber, Dropbox, NBA, Coachella).

At Bus.com, we’re aligning the demands of bus renters and event planners with the supply of small charter bus companies. The result is a transformative charter bus marketplace that delivers an exceptional customer experience. We’re currently growing rapidly, the key to continued development is passionate individuals that can put team success over individual wins.
