Booking this vendor was very easy. We really wanted to have yellow school buses to transport our guests from hotel to venue. This company was the only one that could guarantee service on a Friday afternoon while school is still in session. Other companies said they could not guarantee a bus would show up on time!! Looking forward to working with them on our wedding day.

Local Motion of boston provided a van for our wedding party and 2 coach buses for our wedding guests to go from the hotel (Harvard Square) to our wedding venue (Waltham). All the drivers were on time and friendly. Booking the transportation was easy. My only complaint is that 2 of the 3 drivers didn't drop guests off at the correct spot--despite us providing the correct address ahead of time and the day of. That being said, everyone eventually got to where they needed to be.

I am sorry to report that the service Local Motion provided was subpar. The bus transportation was the worst part of the wedding. The busses left the hotel late and took the absolute longest route possible, ignoring a convienient highway nearby they chose the local roads. Subsequently the parents of the bride,and groom, arrived ½ hour late, to a one hour cocktail party. This greatly impacted our ability to greet our guests. On the return trip the drivers took the same long route; we were late again, and missed the opportunity to mingle with our guests and partake in the after party buffet. We were charged for a late arrival at the garage for one bus; a situation that was hardly our fault.
Additionally, we were misled as to the capacity of the busses. We reserved 30 passenger busses due to a weight restriction of a bridge at the venue. The busses that arrived were 50 (adult) passenger busses. Most of the busses traveled half filled. Had we know the true capacity we would have reserved fewer busses and saved a great deal of money?
Local Motion was a complete disappointment for us and we are extremely dissatisfied with the service they provided. It was very unprofessional for the drivers not to have driving directions prior to pick up – reliance on GPS is ludicrous and unprofessional. I would never recommend their services. Through Local Motion’s poorly executed itinerary, my husband and I lost (unreasonably) priceless time, at a once in a lifetime event. I wrote to them expressing my disappointment and they never responded.

Local Motion did the transportation for our wedding and did a great job! We had a lot of instructions for both the rehearsal dinner and our wedding and they followed them all perfectly. They even had a call with me three days before the wedding to go over them all again. I would recommend them as wedding transportation to anyone!

Local Motion is the cheapest when it comes to bus rentals, I've used them for work related transportation in the past. It was a bit stressful to work with them because they had a back log and were not as quick about responding as I would have liked, but everything worked fine in the end. The best part of this service is that they let you use a credit card to pay.

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!!

The drivers were courtesy and prompt, the buses were clean, and our guests were very happy. To top it off, I had an amazing working relationship with Lisa, who made several tweaks to our order and was always prompt in her responses. Highly recommend this professional organization.

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.
