Best Snacks to Bring With You on a Bus Ride

Posted on: September 5th, 2017


So you’ve already used our Long Island limo service and you are back for more options. In case you are planning a road trip with a large group of students, employees, or friends, you are welcome to use our bus rental in NYC to get some amazing deals for traveling in style. You will undoubtedly have a great time once you arrive at your destination, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ride too.


Fill your bus ride with the right kind of energy

There are so many reasons to rent a luxury bus in Long Island. Group travel is just such a fun way to get around. You have games you can play, and numerous activities to do. Even just talking, getting to know someone better, or catching up can be great uses for your time spent on a bus. However, it’s hard to deny that, in order to do all those fun activities, you need your energy levels to be optimal. This is why you need to have a good supply of snacks and drinks for your journey.

Our favorite foods and drinks that we recommend taking with you on a bus trip are:

  • Bottled water and juice
  • Juice boxes
  • Raw vegetables
  • Fresh fruit
  • Dried fruit
  • Sandwiches
  • String cheese
  • Granola bars
  • Trail Mix
  • Crackers
  • Biscuits
  • Chocolate
  • Candy
  • Nuts
  • Chips
  • Rice cakes

As a general rule, you want to take foods that can easily be eaten without relocating to your hands and clothes. Sandwiches should be individually wrapped and should not contain ingredients that smell too strongly. And meals should already be prepared for consumption. For example, you don’t need to bring a jar of peanut butter when you can make the sandwiches at home.

On a picnic or in a kitchen rather than a buss

Our New York car service has seen many scenarios over the years, some less embarrassing than others when it comes to food on a bus. This is why we compiled a list of the foods you should really avoid taking with you on the road, especially when traveling in close quarters with a large group of people.

Here’s what not to eat on a bus:

  • Foods that have to be cut or prepared, like watermelon or steak
  • Foods that need to be served on plates or eaten with utensils, like soup
  • Food containing ingredients that transfer onto your clothes easily, like greasy food, powdered sugar, broth, etc.

It’s always a good idea to bring hand wipes wherever you go, so in case you absolutely must have certain foods that won’t stay in one place, you can always use a handy dandy moist towelette to keep your hands clean and hygienic.

The advantage of traveling more often

Sometimes, if you start your trip just right, the journey to a destination can be a lot of fun as well. Any time you spend with our Long Island ground transportation services promises to be a lot of fun. You can always learn valuable lesson while traveling. However, when you travel with a large group of people, the lessons take on a slightly different tone. You can enjoy getting to know others, interacting with them in a more familiar atmosphere and observing the ways you feel and act in this exciting situation.

So give bus rental a try next time you are planning a group adventure and we will be more than happy to create the perfect, safe, friendly environment for your needs. Enjoy!
