Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

Break Shuttle

Location: Nationwide

Website: www.breakshuttle.com

BreakShuttle is the largest national provider of college and university break transportation services in the United States. We are committed to providing reliable, safe, and convenient transportation services that allow even the most remote colleges and universities to have a "pop up" transportation network around major school breaks.

This allows students to travel directly from campus to major surrounding cities. Such a service is vitally important to reduce the cost of attending college for many students and families. On average, students who have a BreakShuttle service at their school save over $1,000 a year.

Riding with BreakShuttle is incredibly easy. Students and parents can purchase tickets on our website using a credit card or a deferred payment plan. Then, BreakShuttle immediately sends an E-Ticket to the purchaser's inbox.

The student can then use the E-Ticket to check in at one of our pre-designated boarding points on campus and then be quickly and safely on their way home!

In addition to being the provider of choice for students, BreakShuttle is also the provider of choice for colleges and universities. BreakShuttle is the only provider of transportation services in the country that can provide fully integrated ticketing, operations, and transportation services to colleges and universities.

By offering direct service from our partner schools, colleges and universities can more easily retract and retain students who live quite a distance away. By partnering with us, colleges and universities decrease the costs of attendance for their students and increase the level of service provided. Most large schools pay nothing for our service. BreakShuttle is based out of offices in Philadelphia, PA, Burlington VT, and Boston MA. From these locations, we have a full time staff dedicated to coordinating travel arrangements for our students around the country.

BreakShuttle uses fully insured luxury motorcoaches and vans (often with WiFi, TVs and premium seating) which are driven by drivers who undergo constant training and testing making them the best in the industry.
