We're not the cheapest charter motorcoach operator on the west coast, nor do we aspire to be. Rather than focusing exclusively on price, rather than trading exclusively on how cheaply we can operate, the people of MTR Western instead proudly unite around one common goal: every day we strive to deliver the best value for our customer's dollar by being the best charter motorcoach operator in North America.
If quality equipment is a deciding factor for you; if professional scheduled maintenance is important to you; if you'd prefer to hire an environmentally responsible carrier; if a top-down commitment to a comprehensive safety program has a place in your decision-making process; if formalized and recurring training catches your attention; if you find value in a
kind and competent back office; if - bottom line - you believe price is important but not the only determining factor, you've come to the right place.
You've definitely come to the right place.
When Cruisereport.com selected the Queen of the West as having the best shore excursion program of any cruise ship (large or small) in the world, their award winning program was actually subcontracted to and performed exclusively by narrating driver/guides from MTR Western.
Every day of the year, MTR Western driver/guides set out to perform both single day and multi-day driver narrated tour programs throughout the western U.S. and Canada. MTR's driver narrated tour programs are custom designed solutions servicing cruise lines, tour companies, and per capita sightseeing operations – providing informative and entertaining narration from talented, highly trained driver narrators.
If your program requires driver narration, whether it's a simple city tour or a multi-day over-the road tour, MTR Western can customize a driver narrated solution for you. Ask your Charter Sales Manager for more details.
Tour Directors say our motorcoaches are "gorgeous" and, after their first day on the road with us, often get starry eyed and ask "Where have you been all my life?"
MTR Western is the best choice for Series Tour Operators operating series tours to west coast destinations. With physical locations and maintenance bases in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver (BC) and Calgary, MTR Western reaches from Northern California well into Western Canada and is uniquely positioned, like no other charter motorcoach carrier, to efficiently and cost effectively service itineraries touring the Canadian Rockies, the Pacific Northwest, California, the National Parks and the Canyonlands.
Perhaps this explains why MTR Western is Tauck World Discovery's largest motorcoach partner in the world.
Ask a Travel Manager for any sports team and he'll tell you – the express route to getting yourself fired is for the motorcoach company you hire to get lost, show up late, break down, or mess up in some other way. As a result, these professional Travel Managers spend the season fretting every last detail.
They call it sitting in the ejection seat.
That's why the majority of professional, semi-professional and collegiate sports teams visiting the various markets we serve use MTR Western as their carrier of choice.
As MTR Western has proven itself to be reliable and trustworthy, 100's of teams have come to trust their players (and 100's of Travel Managers have come to trust their jobs) to us.
Every day, the people of MTR Western strive to show you just how great a charter motorcoach company can be.
Starting with the most luxurious, most modern fleet of motorcoaches available for charter anywhere in North America, MTR Western raises the bar by marrying an extraordinary fleet of full sized motorcoach equipment with the best people in the industry. Using only full time employees, each employee earning a living wage and having company paid health, MTR Western is advantaged by an uncommon commitment to customer service from its team members. This enables us to deliver a product that is remarkably better than anything available elsewhere in the industry.
Rather than aspiring to be the cheapest charter motorcoach operator, MTR Western passionately pursues a philosophy of being the best at providing first class transportation solutions to customers who care as much about quality as they do price.
From striking custom graphics to complicated shuttle programs, MTR Western handles transportation challenges of all sizes.
MTR Western is more than motorcoaches. We're your transportation toolbox, offering end to end design, management, staffing, and execution of meeting and event transportation programs of every size. From small incentive groups to citywide conventions requiring complicated shuttle programs and large scale event movements, MTR Western gracefully choreographs and executes programs with an uncommon focus on detail, quality, and environmental stewardship. The result is a polished, professionally managed and staffed, flawlessly executed program using sparkling clean, state of the art, environmentally responsible equipment.
And here's the best part: by dealing direct with MTR Western, our top-shelf transportation solutions can be bought for prices comparable to lesser programs. For more information, or to submit an RFP, contact Jeremy Butzlaff at email@example.com.
If you want your own dedicated motorcoaches without actually owning motorcoaches, MTR Western is your out-sourced off balance sheet solution.
At $500,000 each, the cost of purchasing your own seated motorcoaches can add up quickly. Particularly when you recognize that the cost of the coach itself is just the beginning. Lest we forget: facilities, maintenance, cleaning, fuel, insurance and labor must also be funded.
If your organization has frequent use for chartered motorcoaches, investigate our out-sourced, off balance sheet solutions – all of which have been designed specifically for organizations who wish to appear as though they own their own coaches without tying up operating capital or credit facilities on infrastructure unrelated to their core business.
For more information or to discuss out-sourcing your recurring group transportation requirements, contact Jeremy Butzlaff at (206) 838-8143 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
