Rukstela Charter Service
Motor Coach and Bus Services

We specialize in Employee Outings, Motorcoach Tours, Senior Clubs,
Athletic Events, Wedding Shuttles, University Transportation,
and any other group transportation service.

Rukstela Charter Service is a privately owned and operated company with headquarters in Northeastern, Connecticut.

Unlike some bigger names in the charter business (such as the charter giants with a lot more vehicles spread out across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island), Rukstela Charter Service will ensure that you get the personal attention you deserve. In fact, we’ll even custom design tour packages to ideally suit your needs. When you hire a motor coach or school bus from us, we believe that you’ll be very pleased.

  • What a great bus company!  Our driver Norma drove our wedding guests during the Witch's Storm this past October, and she did a phenomenal job.  She was tasked with blizzard conditions, had to reroute due to a downed power line and then again with an accident.  She delivered our guests safely and securely, and kept everyone's spirits up.  Professional, reliable and flexible, Rukstela Charter Service is who I would recommend if you need transportation for a large or a small group of people.

  • We were truly impressed by the professionalism and expertise of Rukstela Charter Service.  We had numerous patrons that had special needs and they accommodated us with a kind and generous demeanor the whole trip.  I highly recommend them.

  • I was in need of a mini-bus service for a short film I was managing. I called Charles and I was able to scratch one thing off my list. It was a painless process to work with Rukstela Charter Service. Our schedule was changing constantly and Charles was not only understanding but super accommodating. I got a great price and an awesome bus driver who put up with our "drive forward, now go back to the first mark for take two" and "do you think you can do that again?" For our needs we had to travel between 2 locations and our driver put up with a long day with a smile in her face. I would definitely use their service in the future for more than just a film shoot.

  • Charlie Rukstela and his staff have consistently provided quality charter bus service for the varsity sports teams at the University of Connecticut. The equipment quality is excellent and our teams always enjoy their drivers. The only drawback is the size of his fleet means that we cannot accommodate all of our teams on his buses.

Rukstela Charter Service since 1999

We have been organizing motor coach tours since 1985

When it comes time to choose a bus company, whether it’s for a shuttle service, school bus, or motor coach, there are quite a few things to consider.

  • You’ll want to be sure that you’re booking your trip with a company that offers competitive prices
  • You’ll also want to make certain that they have a reputation for being reliable.
  • You’ll also want to look into the quality of their vehicles and the experience of their drivers.
With all that in mind, it’s easy to see why some people feel overwhelmed when they try to select a bus company.

Remembering to address all those factors is a tall order.

Fortunately, there’s a charter bus company that offers all that and more: Rukstela Charter Service.

Our Goal is to get Your Party to its Destination Safely.
