The booking and contact with the owner and accounting person was very good. Unfortunately, we had a rogue driver who started late and then got lost in spite of having driven the route several times before. The wedding was almost half an hour late because the bus was so late-a lot of stress for everyone on the bus and those of us waiting for the bus.
The driver also gave me a hard time when I talked to him about the late night pick up-not good.
The company owner was very apologetic and refunded half the contract price. The original contract was expensive but the price came down 3 times by the time day of the wedding.
If you use them-build in an extra half hour to avoid a late bus and delayed wedding!!

We used local motion to hire a coach bus for our wedding guests and could not have been happier with how everything worked out! Their price was competitive and they were very receptive to our somewhat complicated request with multiple destinations. We asked that they pick up guests at the hotel, take them to the church, then take them and any other folks who needed a ride to the reception and then take multiple trips back to the hotel towards the end of the night as people were ready to leave. I was nervous about the bus being late to the church with a lot of our guests, but they were the first ones to arrive! Everything was prompt and efficient, and I heard from the guests that the driver was super nice. The best part was that after I confirmed the details in the few days leading up to the wedding, I didn't have to think about it again! To me that is the definition of a great company to work with for a big event.

Given their incredibly low prices, we weren't expecting stellar service from Local Motion, but we got it! Local Motion staff checked in with us several times in the days leading up to our wedding to confirm all of the details of our transportation plan, and they were very accommodating of the minor changes that arose on the actual day. Their pricing, as mentioned, was very affordable. This is a great business.

Working with Local Motion of Boston to rent 2 activity buses to transport wedding guests went perfectly. They answered all my questions via email & over the phone promptly. Our wedding was a very hot July afternoon. Some guests were concerned about the heat & if the bus had AC. When guests arrived & got off the buses they appreciated the very well cooled buses & smiled at the goose bumps on their arms that quickly disappeared. My only concern was that 1 wk prior to our event when I emailed my correspondent at the company to confirm details, I was informed with an auto-reply email that the employe no longer worked for the company. I left a voicemail & wrote an email immediately concerned about connecting with someone to make sure any loose ends were tied. A few days later, I was contacted and informed everything was fine, but I'm glad I called to confirm. Thanks very much for keeping our guests cool & happy, & arriving to our wedding as we scheduled!

The booking process was fairly simple and the prices competitive. The staff were very responsive over email. On the day of there appeared to be some confusion however. The bus driver called my point of contact to say there were no guests, however he was early to the stop. The time frame was detailed in our final order, so I'm not sure why there was confusion creating unnecessary stress the morning of. Bringing guests to the church went smoothly, everyone arrived on time. Apparently on the drive to the reception, however, the driver got lost, delaying the arrival of half the wedding guests to the cocktail hour. They at least arrived with enough time to get some hor d'oeurves and chat, but not as much as those who drove themselves in. I feel in this era of GPS, and for such an important event, drivers should know the city of Boston backwards and forwards to avoid such complications.

They were very easy to use and were great about getting us a quote and getting back to us promptly. Overall, I think the value was great, I was surpirsed at how economical it was and gratuity was included, which was nice. They did fail to pick guests up at one stop which was disappointing, but that may have been driver error; I found the scheduling and arrangements to be very easy.

We were looking for a way to transport 50+ guests to/from our venue (ceremony/cocktail/reception all in one site) - from two hotels, roughly 15 minutes away....to keep our guests from having to worry about getting there, and to prevent drinking and driving.

We looked into limos, coaches, etc...but as our wedding was at a barn (Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA) - school buses seemed fun & fitting.

I e-mailed for a quote, and within a day heard from Jessy. Over the months, our needs/ideas changed a little bit...and I'd discuss changes with Jessy, and same day - have a new quote.

The price was MORE than fair, we were able to add gratuity right to our AmEx (one less thing to worry about), and the service was quick, efficient, 100% on-time...and certainly affordable.

Weddings are a lot of work...if you need group transportation... definitely consider Local Motion - it will be one less thing to worry about, because they will take care of things without a problem, without any catches, and without any small print.

Thank you Local Motion, and Jessy, for making this part of our wedding so easy to coordinate...and for a fun bus ride as a married couple :)

We were very pleased with Local Motion. Both my friends who recently got married also used them (mention your friends and you might get a discount). I had called around and Local Motion was definitely a good deal. We used a 50-passenger school bus (half the price of a coach bus for the same # of seats). Jessy was great and responded pretty promptly and sent the invoice and details over email. I was planning the wedding from out of state and working with Local Motion while not in MA was not a problem at all.

I can't speak to how the driver was (since I wasn't personally on the bus) but I heard no complaints from guests, who all got to the wedding on time!

We used Local Motion to have two shuttle buses during our rehearsal dinner and wedding. The company was extremely easy to get in touch with, responsive and had the best rates we could find to rent the buses. The buses were clean and ran smoothly. One of the drivers was awesome, but one of the drivers was less responsive. The issue with him was that he didn't pull up to our wedding venue at the end of the night until someone had to walk over and ask him too, despite the fact that it was past the time we told him our wedding would end and there was a huge crowd gathered outside. Not a big deal at all, but that is the reason why I'm not giving a full 5. I loved Local Motion overall and would use them again in a heartbeat!

Please do not use this company to provide transportation for your wedding. Our family had a terrible experience in which the Father of the Bride was treated so rudely by one of their drivers that it was an embarrassing experience for many wedding guests who overheard the interaction. An awful ending to an otherwise wonderful day. PLEASE NOTE - I wrote a formal letter to the President of Local Motion and received no response at all from the company.

11/29/2011:
Mr. Bruce Barrows of Local Motion subsequently contacted me. He offered to write a letter of apology to the Father of the Bride. He said he would address the situation of the rude bus driver. He seemed genuinely sincere. I believe our negative experience won't be repeated for other families in the future. by Jean H. on 11/29/2011

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We had 3 55-passenger shuttle buses to transport guests to and from the hotels/ceremony/reception/back to the hotels. They were all right on time and the drivers were amazing - specifically, Lenny. On the way to the ceremony, with a bus-load of guests, a jet ski fell off a trailer in front of him and bounced down the road. He went above and beyond to ensure no accident occurred and all our guests were safe. Definitely go with Local Motion for transportation services!

One of the drivers ran over a curb on their way out of the hotel and per my guests, the bus was never the same. It was making a very unsettling noise and nothing was done about it. I was also told that the one particular driver was driving very fast and was not very cautious.

The day of the wedding, the drivers didn't act as agreed upon and took valuable time away from our wedding. My mother, husband and I spent about a half an hour with the drivers arguing with them on what they needed to do, which had all been previously agreed to. It ended up working out, but the wedding night flies by so quickly that it was a shame that we had to waste such a significant amount of time dealing with the drivers.

After the wedding, I complained to the Company and they told me that they would look into the situation. They never followed up with me.

With the money that you spend on transportation, things like this shouldn't happen.

Never responded to emails, only sent one bus at the end of the night instead of two and then laid on extra time charges. They were the only vendors around with reasonable prices and school buses, but it's not worth the hassle. Stay away!

We hired Local Motion to transport our guests from the hotel to the venue and back, a 15 minute drive. We choose the school bus, and the driver was timely and pleasant. They were reasonably priced, and by far one of the most pleasant and professional transportation vendors we dealt with. Highly recommended!

We rented a 50 passenger school bus to transport our guests from the Hotel to the Venue. They were easy to work with when booking and confirming details. The pricing couldn't be beat.
The day of they were on time and got out guests to the ceremony early. At the end of the evening I found the bus driver to be rude. We were running a few minutes behind and the driver was complaining about having to wait for the bride and groom. We offered to pay extra for the extra time and his response was " I don't care I don't make more money" In the end we told him to leave and we drove a guests car back to the hotel.

We rented a School Bus to transport our guests from the Holiday Inn Rockland to Camp Kiwanee and back. Local Motion of Boston provided a clean bus and a courteous driver. They were on time and easy to work with. And they were very reasonably priced. I would hire them again.
