We are a proud partner of education!

How can we help with your school transportation?

School Transportation Services

Motorcoaches are a great resource for any educational endeavor. Whether you’re getting young kids to school or in need of a way to get a bunch of students to a field trip location, we are the best solution!

Safe Ride Home

We know that getting children to and from school safely and on time is a top priority for both parents and educators alike. Our coaches are constructed with safety and comfort in mind, and come with the option of additional amenities, such as a bathroom, individual reading lights, and video screens to make the ride to school a little more enjoyable.

School Shuttles

If you’ve decided to implement a transportation system for your college campus or university, coaches are the way to go. Easily able to transport lots of students and faculty members alike, they are also ideal because of the extras you can select for your specific needs: individual reading lamps and air-flow control for each seat, bathrooms, power, Wi-Fi, and video screens, to name a few. These features are ideal for work feasibility, studying, social connectivity, gearing up for the beginning of a long day, or winding down when it’s over and folks are heading home.


When sorting out all the details for an upcoming field trip with your school group, transportation is likely a central concern. Reserving a motorcoach is an ideal solution. Not only can each coach carry up to 57 passengers, there is also lots of additional storage room for food, recreational items, or study supplies that you may need to bring along. Additionally, if you’re traveling for several hours, there is always the option to get a coach that is equipped with a bathroom, TV screens, and Wi-Fi to help make longer distances a breeze.

Day Trips

Research and education go hand-in-hand, and getting students to field sites is crucial for collecting data, monitoring studies, and for hands-on, real-world application knowledge. Motorcoaches provide an optimal choice for getting your students where they need to be. Not only can they effectively transport faculty and students with ease, they are equipped with lots of additional storage space for whatever equipment you need to bring along.

We are here to help take your students the places they need to go.

School Group Transportation Experts

The educational opportunities of today are greater than ever before, and we aren’t a step behind in that trend. If you are looking to implement an in-house transportation system on your college campus, retain our services for field trips, sports team travel, or field site studying, we take pride in participating in education and would love to accommodate your needs.

Green Transportation

At Hotard, our commitment to the environment runs deep. Our company is grounded in the belief that what we leave behind for our children is every bit as important as what we accomplish today. Every day we take hundreds of cars off Louisiana roads and deliver the highest passenger miles per gallon of any means of group transportation. We are consistently leading the transportation industry toward a greener tomorrow.

Professional Drivers

Our driver pool is one of the things we are most proud of at Hotard. We have some of the south’s most accomplished and highly-trained drivers on the roads today. We know that your driver matters, whether you’re being picked up at the airport and taken to a local hotel, or if you are going on a 6-day road trip. We are proud that our drivers are the face of our organization and know that no matter who you ride with, you’re in good hands!

24-Hour Travel Support

No matter how much we want everything to go perfectly, no matter how well we prepare, there are those moments where you simply need help and you need it now! And no matter how much we wish they didn’t, it seems like more often than not, these things happen in the middle of the night. Our team understands that you need help when you need it, not in the morning when someone gets in to the office. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives will always have someone there to take your call, answer your question, and get you the help you need to ensure your travels with us are as perfect as we can make them.

We are here to help take your students the places they need to go.

  • We were absolutely delighted with our driver, Denise, and Hotard's punctual service, willingness to improvise, spotless equipment and more.  Our Garden District guide, Mary Eshenour, was delightful, informative and very knowledgeable.  Everything worked to perfection, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotard to any group visiting New Orleans. And it was a pleasure working with our sales person as well!

  • The service you all provided this weekend was EXCELLENT and one of the best I have ever worked with. Hotard was very thorough and prompt with the booking and scheduling process and our three drivers, Darrell, John and Leonard were timely, friendly and very adaptable.   It is people like you that make our trips so successful. Thank you for this! I look forward to working with you all again when we travel to Louisiana again soon.

  • What a fabulous bus!  Your company has now spoiled us.  The bus was great.  We can't wait until our next trip.  Thelma Alexander was an excellent driver.  Her patience and professionalism with a group of "young" ladies is superb.
