Raceday transportation for fans of the Daytona 500.

In the spring of 2011, First Student Charter Bus Rentals used more than 300 buses to transport 63,000 race fans from their parking spots to Daytona International Speedway for the world-famous Daytona 500 and its companion races. The 3-day event marked the third year that First Student Charter has successfully provided shuttle services for the world-famous event.

A last minute request for shuttle service.

First Student Charter began its relationship with Gameday Management Group "Daytona International Speedway's event organizer" in 2009, when Gameday asked the company to take over transportation and logistics a mere 72 hours before the event. Years of experience with on-the-fly logistics meant First Student Charter coordinators were able to leverage hundreds of buses from Jacksonville and successfully provide transportation for all three days of racing.

It is always a pleasure working with a first class organization like First Student. They are a key to our success in running the shuttle operations for Daytona International Speedway. I look forward to our continued relationship.

Reliable service despite the challenges.

In 2010, inclement weather and track issues postponed Friday and Saturday's races, which took the events long into the night. This was no problem for First Student Charter's dedicated team. The close working relationship between First Student Charter agents and Gameday Management made sure that even in the face of challenges, transporting race fans was never red flagged. "We think of Gameday as more than our clients, they're our partners and we wouldn't have the kind of success we have at Daytona without that partnership" said First Student Charter Coordinator Mike Flaster.
