Convention season in Las Vegas is bustling with large
corporate groups. Those large groups are often seeking hotel accommodations,
meeting space and extra curricular team building activities far in advanced.
One thing that should be considered while planning your corporate trip is group
transportation. Below we explore the benefits of group transportation for you
and your team of professionals during your business trip.
Stay On Schedule
Giving large groups the freedom to arrive at a specific
location on their own merit is almost impossible. Most individuals won’t plan
ahead, and will rely on ride sharing or taxicabs to get them from point A to
point B. Convention season is extremely busy in Las Vegas, resulting in long
taxi lines and even longer waits and surge charges when using ride sharing apps
such as Uber. Hiring a professional shuttle service will offer a safe and
guaranteed ride, and will also allow for your team to arrive and depart in
unison. Hey, punctuality is key while traveling on business, right?!

When booking group transportation with ODS Chauffeured
