It’s Time to Fly!

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

The holidays are approaching, and that means vacations are coming! We know getting ready for vacations can be hectic and stressful, but we’re ready to take some of the stress away by being your go-to airport transportation. With our array of vehicles, we can accommodate your every need, from small to large groups, along with handicap accessible vehicles.

If you have yet to book your transportation, we walk you through that process in this article. Once you’ve gone through those steps, your vehicle will be booked and you’ll be all set for your trip! If you’ve booked transportation to the airport, on the day of your trip, your driver will arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled pick-up time. This is to allow enough time for you to get your things together and meet your driver outside of your pick-up location. The driver will then take you to the departures section at the airport and help you unload your luggage with a sendoff for a great expedition!

If you’re booking transportation from the airport, we ask that you do it at least 24 hours in advance. Upon arrival at the airport, your driver will meet you in the arrivals section by the baggage claim. Your driver will help you carry your luggage to their vehicle, which will be parked in the parking structure. Once you are all situated in the vehicle, you will be off to your destination!

Booking your airport transportation with Trinity is the one ingredient that will provide relaxing travel time for you and your guests. We can’t wait to help make your trip the best it can be!

What Is the Cedar Point Line Run?

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

It’s almost summertime and the Cedar Point season is upon us! The park is open and our motor coach is waiting for you! We offer trips to Cedar Point on our Cedar Point Line Run every year during the park’s open season…but what exactly is the Cedar Point Line Run? We’re here to explain it to you and how to book your tickets for round trip transportation and park admission. Easy peasy!

What is the Line Run?

Our Cedar Point Line Run offers round trip transportation to Cedar Point in one of our luxury motor coaches and park admission for around the same price as gate ticket prices! We have two options available for purchase: round trip transportation with park admission for $82 or round trip transportation only for $42. Our motor coach will pick you up at one of our pick-up locations, take you to the park where you’ll arrive by 10am then depart the park at 9:30pm for the regular season and arrive by 11am then depart at 10:30pm for HalloWeekends. Trips on our Cedar Point Line Run for this year start July 6th and go to the park every Saturday. A full day of fun – and you don’t even have to worry about driving!

How to Reserve Your Spot on the Cedar Point Line Run

  1. Visit the Cedar Point Line Run page on our website. This website lays out all of the information on our Cedar Point Line Run, including pick-up locations, motor coach specs, and guidelines.
  2. Determine the type of reservation you want. You can choose to purchase round trip transportation with park admission for $82 or round trip transportation only for $42. All guests in your group do not need to purchase the same tickets!
  3. Choose your date and pick-up location. With trips running every week and three Metro Detroit pick-up locations, you’re bound to find a trip that works for you! Take a peek at your calendar and choose a date that fits your schedule, then select a pick-up location that works best for you.
  4. Call us to reserve your spot. We’re here to take your Cedar Point Line Run reservations Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Call us at 888-995-8565 and we will happily assist you! Please have your credit/debit card ready for payment. When calling, we will ask for the following information: the name on your credit/debit card, billing address, phone number, email address, names of everyone attending, what type of reservation you will be purchasing for each guest, date of trip, pick-up location, and your credit/debit card information. Please have these items ready to go when you call!
  5. Mark your calendar. After you call to reserve your spot, you are all set! You will receive an email confirming the details of your order shortly after the call is complete. Once we have your information, we will put you and your guests on the manifest. On the day of your trip, our motor coach will pick you up at the pick-up location you selected. Please bring your driver’s license or other form of identification so you can check in with the driver. Upon boarding the bus, the driver will check your name off on the manifest and hand you your park tickets (if you purchased the $82 option). After that, it’s off to the park you go!

We hope you’re as excited as we are for the fun summer ahead at Cedar Point! Don’t forget to also book your trip for the spooktacular HalloWeekends!

Trips on a Trinity Motor Coach

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

So you’ve planned a group trip that will last two or more days, and you’re wondering how the process works and what to expect…well, we will lay it all out for you! We’re here to provide you with all of the necessary information for what to expect during the process of your motor coach trip so your mind can be at ease when planning.

What to Expect After Booking

After requesting a quote and booking your trip, the motor coach reservations specialist you’ve been in contact with will provide you with a contract/confirmation that contains a trip number, day of departure, and date of return, which is required to be signed and returned. You will also be asked to provide a detailed itinerary and on-site contact, which will ensure there is constant contact between the group and the driver. Once the final itinerary is reviewed, it is sent to our motor coach dispatch department, then a driver is assigned to the trip and given the itinerary. After the driver is assigned to your trip, you will receive the driver’s name, cell phone number, and the number(s) of the bus(es) that will be used for your trip. You will also receive our 24-hour dispatch number in case it is needed. The day before your trip, your motor coach reservations specialist will call you to verbally confirm every detail of your trip is correct.

Day-Of Process

When the day of your trip arrives, the driver(s) will pick you up in your motor coach(es) at the discussed pick-up time and location. You will then be transported to your destination(s). Please note that destinations with travel time longer than 8 hours will require more than one driver for each motor coach. This second driver (or more, depending on travel time) will meet your current driver at a specified location to switch. Since your trip is 2+ days long, you will be required to provide accommodations for your driver at each destination. While at your destination (or each destination if you have more than one), your driver can take you to wherever you need to go – as long as it is included in your itinerary!

After Your Trip

After your trip is over and you return home, you are all set! Our motor coach reservations specialist will reach out to you to see how everything went and for any feedback about your trip.

We’re Going on a Field Trip!

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Field trips are a fun way to educate children in a non-classroom setting, a break from the everyday norm, but we understand that planning an outing for 20+ students may be a tad stressful, so we want to make the process a little less stressful. We’re going to walk you through what happens once you book your field trip and what you can expect the day of and after!

What to Expect After Booking

After you request a quote and book your trip, one of our reservations specialists will contact you to confirm all details and information are correct and make any needed changes. They will also ask if you have any special requests you would like the driver to know, such as a special pick-up or drop-off location or someone other than you as the main contact for the day of the field trip. Our reservations specialists will contact you again 24 hours before your field trip to ensure everything is good to go and to make any last-minute accommodations necessary.

Day-Of Process

This process is pretty simple! The driver will pick you up in the booked vehicle at the discussed pick-up time and location. You will then be transported to your destination for your field trip. After the field trip is over, you will be taken back to your pick-up location, unless otherwise specified. If for some reason your field trip goes over the scheduled time, you will be charged a late fee that is based on your hourly rate.

After Your Field Trip

If everything goes according to schedule, you will be all set after the day of your field trip! Our reservations specialists may reach out to you to see how everything went and for feedback about your trip.

How to Become a Motor Coach Driver

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Being a motor coach driver is an interesting career filled with travel, meeting new people, and servicing your community. It can be fun and rewarding, and take your career to new heights…but how do you get started? We’re going to walk you through the requirements for and process of becoming a motor coach driver, so you can be prepared to apply at Trinity Transportation!

Requirements:

  • Possess a valid Michigan commercial driver license (CDL) A or B with passenger (P) endorsement and enhancement
  • Experience with motor coach driving or minimum transit experience (transit includes city buses, school buses, or trucks – truck drivers must have P endorsement)
  • Able to calculate passenger fares and provide correct change
  • Ability to complete trip sheets, pre/post bus inspection sheets, and vehicle inspection report clearly and in a legible manner
  • Capable of operating and communicating clearly on a telephone and/or a two-way radio
  • Able to speak English fluently
  • Minimum age for drivers is 21 with no driving infractions on record
  • Drivers with up to two minor moving violations or no major violations in the past 36 months will be considered at the minimum age of 22-23

How to Obtain Your CDL:

When you are ready to apply for your first commercial driver license, you will go to your local Secretary of State office with the following items:

  • Your driver license
  • Proof of your Social Security number
  • Acceptable proof of U.S. citizenship (birth certificate, passport, etc.) or Permanent Resident Card

Upon arriving at the Secretary of State office, you will fill out the CDL certification form, which includes meeting the CDL medical qualifications. You must also meet the driver eligibility requirements and pass the required knowledge and vision tests. All CDL knowledge tests are administered on the computer at Secretary of State. A minimum passing score of 80% is required to pass each test. You can take all the tests on the same day; however, you can only take each test once. If you need to retake a test, you must go back to the Secretary of State office the following business day. The CDL Group B knowledge test is 50 questions and the passenger endorsement knowledge test is 20 questions; both require a skills test after training.

Once you finish these knowledge tests, you will be given your CDL commercial learner’s permit (CLP), which allows you to practice driving under the supervision of a driver trainer and is required for taking the CDL skills tests. You will also need to obtain your chauffeur license before processing your CDL license. To receive the required training and to take your skills test, you can either do so through a third party state certified commercial vehicle training center or truck driving school.

Upon obtaining your CDL, you are ready to apply! You can do so at drivefortrinity.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

Trinity Transportation Hurricane Disaster Relief Drive

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Several parts of the United States have been torn apart recently by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Hurricane Harvey caused devastation to the residents of Texas and Louisiana, wrecking everything in its path. Rainfalls reached over 51”, a record for rain caused by a single storm in the lower 48. Hurricane Irma affected Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, causing immense flooding, countless trees to be uprooted, and millions of people to be without power.  Hurricane Maria made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, completely dismantling the U.S. territory and drowning it with several feet of rain. Homes have been destroyed, people and animals have been injured or had their lives taken away, roads and vehicles have been damaged, and complete cities have been flooded, their residents having to evacuate and take shelter elsewhere. So many people have lost absolutely everything.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria have displaced millions of people and caused insurmountable damage to the areas in their destructive paths. It’s hard to imagine the utter heartbreak and anguish those affected by the hurricanes are feeling in the aftermath of the storms. Now is the time for those who are able to rise up and assist the residents of the affected areas. Trinity Transportation sent down five motor coach buses in the first few days of Hurricane Harvey to assist with transporting citizens, and decided to run a disaster relief drive for Harvey, Irma, and Maria victims from September 5th – 22nd. Trinity employees and the residents of Metro Detroit filled 9 large tubs with supplies for those affected by these hurricanes. We are proud of the turnout and blessed to be able to help with the relief efforts.
