School Trips

Every child looks forward to a day outside of the classroom. We provide an entertaining and safe ride for the kids. Whether it's a trip to Chicago so our elementary students can visit the zoo, a trip to our state capital for our junior high students, or that long awaited senior class trip, charter bus rental from Scenic Stage Line is the way to go.


Senior Groups

Rediscover the fun and adventure of travel! We offer the ultimate in effortless travel at an affordable rate. It is our guarantee you will have the best time with friends, old and new.


Getting older can mean less mobility, fewer long trips, and compromised night driving. But these realities don’t have to mean seniors forgo the thrill of the open road.  In fact, getting older can mean more enjoyable travel — when you charter with Scenic Stage Line for a senior group day trip for sightseeing, tours, and other unforgettable outings. You won't be disappointed.


Shopping Trips

Let’s face it - shopping can be hard work. Whether you’re headed to the designer shops of downtown Chicago, IL or the world-famous Mall of America, or the unique boutiques of downtown Galena, IL , you’ll need all your energy to find the best deals, or the perfect gift for friends, family-or yourself!


With our state-of-the-art modern motorcoaches and courteous experienced drivers, we will get you to your destination relaxed, recharged, refreshed, and ready to shop - then shop some more.


Church Groups

For over 60 years we have worked with different churches throughout the area, transporting them to out-of-town conferences, retreats, choir tours, day-trips, and many other destinations.


A bus trip can be a great time for your church group to relax, have fun and enjoy each other’s company.
