Driver Dave Wallington Outstanding job

by Webmaster on 06/28/18

St. Augustine was very pleased with your service for our trip to New Orleans on June 20-24, 2018.  The bus was clean and very comfortable.  We want to especially commend our driver, David Wallington,  for the main part of the trip from Sikeston and back to Sikeston and for his service in New Orleans.  He was very professional and extremely courteous to all of our church members, especially those who were a little older and had more difficulty in moving.  He was definitely a very positive force in promoting the use of the Vandalia bus lines in our Church.  In fact a number of people have asked that when we have another trip, could we contact Vandalia Bus Service and request David as our driver.  As a Pastor in over fifty years of ministry I also have to say that Mr. Wallingotn was among the best of the drivers I have encountered.  Please let him know that we greatly appreciate his very professional and courteous service.

I just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH for our awesome Vandalia Bus Lines experience! Our trip to the wineries in Ste. Genevieve, MO, was a first for the Millstadt Civic Club and thanks to our terrific coordinator, Melissa, and our excellent bus driver, Gregory, it was a HUGE success!!.


Gregory is a true gentleman and a wonderful driver! We enjoyed a safe trip to and from our destination and always had the best drop-off and pick-up service.


I received many compliments from our members about Gregory and I've included just a few words the ladies used when talking about him - polite, thoughtful, helpful, and  considerate. He is truly an asset to your company.


My experience with your company has been absolutely top-notch from the moment I requested a bid from Melissa to the moment we arrived back in Millstadt! THANK YOU Melissa for helping me coordinate our adventure! Your prompt responses and helpful info were perfect!  I am looking forward to using Vandalia Bus Lines again!


THANK YOU for the EXCELLENT Customer Service from start to finish! You guys are the BEST!

Driver Libby Marzluf compliment

by Webmaster on 07/11/17

Dear Mr. Brewer,

I'm writing to express my delight with the driver assigned to the Texas Graduate Center on Sunday July 9, 2017, Ms. Libby Marzluf.  My communication with her regarding our delayed flight was so enjoyable and accommodating.  She greeted us at the airport with a smile and assisted our group with a pleasant and spirited demeanor.  Libby truly went above and beyond great customer service, and after a long day with so many delayed flights, it was certainly refreshing and comforting.


Vandalia Bus Lines is lucky to have such a committed and delightful employee.

We travel to St Louis with groups each summer; we will be sure to continue to secure the services of your bus line in the future.


Thank you for the excellent service you provided!

Chester Oglesby compliment for great work

by Webmaster on 05/30/17

I recently went on a Vandalia chartered trip to Orlando FL with the local Farmington, MO HS marching band. Have been on many charter bus trips before and always had a good experience with courteous drivers. The driver we got Tuesday thru Saturday this week though has set a new bar of excellence. Our driver 'Chester' introduced himself in such a cheerful & friendly manner that continued the entire time he was with us. He went above & beyond to go out of his way to be helpful, courteous, friendly and a complete gentleman. Chester was the icing on the cake of our Disney experience. The world should have more people like him-it would be a much better place. Please convey our thanks & appreciation to him for the wonderful human being that he is, it was definitely a pleasure meeting him!

Driver Chester Oglesby great work

by Webmaster on 05/30/17

 I recently was on a trip with Farmington High School through Gruenniger Music Tours to Orlando, Florida. I want to brag on the driver we had while in Orlando, his name was Chester. He was pleasant, always had a helping hand in and out of the bus, and ensured our bus had an additional step to keep it from being too far between the bus and ground. I rode the parent bus for this trip and we were all sad to have leave Chester in Georgia.

Driver Curtis Hobbs recognition for great work

by Webmaster on 05/24/17

Just though I would let you know we had such a good time with our bus driver Curtis Hobbs when we went to the Holocaust Museum we have another bus trip through you for Arthur May 18, 2017.  Our group would like to request Curtis Hobbs for out driver Charter #53398 if possible.  

Driver Curtis Hobbs great work

by Webmaster on 05/24/17

We would like to compliment your driver Curtis Hobbs for doing an excellent job today.
We went on the Arthur Il trip today Charter #53398, and it was most enjoyable due to Curtis Hobbs.  He is a very outgoing person and you can tell he likes his joy he is one that will go the extra mile and we do appreciate him.

Now our next adventure is June 15, 2017 Charter #53640 and we would like to request Curtis Hobbs as our driver I failed to tell you this when we booked the bus.  So if at all possible we would like to have him drive the bus to Grants Farm & Zia's at the hill.  Also I have a question: To park the bus in parking lot at Grant's farm it cost $30.00 Do you know if we have to purchase a ticket ahead I'm assuming we can pay for it that day but thought you might know.  We will pay for it just didn't know if we had to get it ahead of time.

Thanks for everything and in our book Curtis Hobbs is #1 in escorting us  on our trips.

Driver Jerome Boyd compliment for great work

by Webmaster on 05/24/17

4/5/17 "I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with Jerome's driving on the tour I led on Wednesday APR 05. The bus was booked by OASIS, and the tour was called "Tour of Mon-And-Pop Doughnur Shops in St. Louis." Not only did Jerome manage to maneuver a fairly large bus through city streets, he also quickly got into the spirit of the tour and enhanced the tour with some nice comments. It was a delight to have Jerome as a driver"

Driver Mark Szymanski Recognition for great work

"Tim, I want you to know or pass along this information.  We had the best day!! Your bus was comfortable and very nice, and Mark, our driver, was excellent!!! He was friendly and so incredibly helpful!! We had a sick one right at first and we had to ask him to stop. (We had to call mom to come pick up the child) he wanted to help anyway possible.  It actually made the trip even better knowing we had a nice bus driver. Thank you so much!!!!
