Arizona Rosary Celebration Bus Rental Information

This year think GREEN and rent a bus to take you and 40 or 50 of your fellow parishioners to the Arizona Rosary Celebration. The following is the information on where to rent a bus and approximately how much they cost. Certain steps need to be been taken to assure the success of sponsoring a bus. The advantages of going by bus are that you have easy access in and out of the convention center, and are assigned priority seating. Also, it enhances the spiritual nature of the pilgramage experience by coming as a community. Please read carefully the following steps:

  1. Make arrangements for a bus for your parish. Call around to bus companies to see the best deal for your parish. Two people or more should work on this.

  2. Determine what the fee per person is. Sometimes bus rental fee will be supplemented in part by Knights of Columbus or parish or both or other organizations making each ticket less. Caution, sometimes when bus is free, people tend not to turn up that day.

  3. Print tickets. Upon request we have some generic tickets that can be obtained by calling us. Tickets should indicate time of departure, place and cost.

  4. Place bus information in parish bulletins with contact numbers at least four weeks before the Arizona Rosary Celebration. Include information about where tickets can be purchased.

  5. Sell available tickets outside of church or at meetings or gatherings.

  6. Maintain list of people who have signed up and that have paid. Record names and phone numbers. Always sell 5 tickets more than bus holds. It is very unlikely that all will show and it will help to have a full bus.

  7. Ask the Pastor use pulpit announcements, especially if there are people outside of church to sell Bus Tickets.

  8. Let the ARC Bus Coordinators know when your bus is confirmed. They will have parking instructions for you.

  9. Have someone help with boarding the bus and ride the bus to the celebration. Have signs designating your parish. Give instructions to stay together at Celebration.
