On April 5-6th Newton Bus transported a group to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The trip coordination, Lisa Wright, wrote the following review:
"As a tour coordinator it's very important to have a reliable bus driver. A friendly, professional driver can make or break the quality of your trip. The AARP, chapter 1399, has used Newton Bus Service for many of our trips. Arinita Holmes has been our requested driver on many of our trips. She comes with knowledge, and well prepared to assist and do what we need. Quality personnel is what makes using Newton Bus Service the transportation firm to pick."
Thank you, Lisa, for such a positive review. We look forward to working with you in the future!
