Planning any event takes a lot of coordination and communication. During the actual event there are almost always unforeseeable challenges that arise. The bigger the event the bigger will be the challenges. Things get a lot more complicated if the event is happening at a venue that is not close to where the participants reside. In most cases the transport to the venue will also have arranged along with the arrangements for the return trip as well. In case of longer trips the planning gets trickier. Using multiple private vehicles can involve challenges with coordination, navigation and assigning of driving duties among the participants.

Most Common Problems
When a larger number of participants are involved it would not make sense to use a public transport service since booking tickets for many people may not be possible. It would also introduce a certain element of uncertainty if there are slight changes in plan. Another option is to use private vehicles. Coordinating multiple vehicles, navigating them together and finding reliable people to drive them will be challenges. Unless the vehicles travel as a convoy, they will get separated from time to time. If not coordinated properly they would take breaks at different times and places and as a result will end up at different places at any given time.
Hiring a Coach
A coach or a bus is often the best way to transport a larger group of people. They are generally more comfortable and suitable for longer trips. It is one way to make sure that all participants will be in the same place while traveling. Through a coach hire one could accommodate up to 75 participants in one vehicle. It is also considered safer than other vehicles. It also saves cost of fuel by reducing the number of vehicles on road. It is the more responsible thing to do if you want to reduce traffic as well. The reduction in cost is not limited to savings in monetary terms. Traveling in a coach is also the more sensible thing if you are worried about your carbon footprint. Transport 60 people by cars would need at least 15 cars at an average of four people per car presuming that at least 15 people are comfortable driving the others around. There would also need more people to do the navigation. This would imply that at least one fourth of the participants that arrive at the destination would feel tired. The return trip would also be hard on them if that has to follow soon.
Coach and bus rental provides a more stress free way of travel. Modern coaches are equipped with Wi-Fi connections, phone charging ports, restrooms, video players etc. A designated professional driver will make sure that the trip stays on schedule and is also comfortable. The participants can enjoy the view, get some rest, spend time reading a book, watch a movie, or talk to a fellow traveller. Since it is a private vehicle you are also free to change the plans according to your convenience.
