A luxury shuttle bus is a form of transportation that may feature many amenities which are not provided by a standard bus or motor coach. These buses offer increased passenger comfort, such as more leg room, or if they have been equipped with facilities and technology, such as kitchens and Internet access, that are not normally present in other types of buses. Luxury shuttle buses typically cost more to charter than a regular bus or coach because the owners usually invest a greater amount of money in them.
Luxury shuttle buses may include an assortment of features to make them more appealing. One of the most common changes is the replacement of some or all of the seats with more comfortable or more stylish seating. Sometimes luxury shuttle buses have much less seating than a regular bus to give passengers more leg room or to make space for other interior amenities. Movement of luxury shuttle buses has become a distinct trend across cosmopolitan cities and towns. The recent uptick in the number of people using public transport facilities for their daily commutes has sent ripples across the global market. The use of luxury shuttles has cascaded into multiple industries including transport, tourism, and aviation. The unprecedented demand for shuttle buses can largely be attributed to the changing propensities of the masses.
The growing popularity of the luxury shuttle buses can be attributed to a host of factors, including rising disposable income especially in developing countries, growing awareness regarding the benefits of using public transport, major improvements in design and interiors of luxury buses, and consistent advancements in technology. In addition, government initiatives and growing private investments are expected to provide a solid foundation for the growth of the global luxury shuttle bus market during the assessment period. In addition, several manufacturers are increasingly focusing on launching new types of luxury shuttle buses with distinguished features and amenities to establish a solid foothold in the market. The demand for luxury travel has witnessed impressive growth around the world in the past decade.
