Food And Beverages
Cline Tours, Inc. has adopted a NO ALCOHOL policy
We allow food and beverages on our coaches if the schedule necessitates, but ask you to keep the coach clean, and return it to us the way you received it. We do not allow sunflower seeds, Doritos, Cheetos, or gum. Drinks must be in screw-top plastic bottles.
We ask you to refrain from smoking on our coaches. All coaches have restrooms on board.
Every time you charter our coach you are automatically covered by our 10 million dollar accident/liability insurance policy. Cancellation insurance for medical emergency conditions is available for charter groups. Call for your brochure explaining various insurance options.
Driver Safety/Comfort Stops
Cline drivers realize that your schedule is very important to you, but even more important is your safety especially if you are traveling long hours through the day or night!
If your driver makes a quick stop every 2.5 to 3 hours to use the lavatory or to get a quick cup of coffee to go, it is for the driver and passenger’s safety and everyone else using the highway.
How Long Can A Driver Work Today Without A Break
Drivers have a limit to how many hours they can safely work all day and still legally operate a commercial vehicle on our nations highways. Drivers are not permitted by the Federal Government or Cline Tours to work more than 15 hours per day, which is divided between 10 hours of driving plus an additional on-duty at your service time of 5 hours totally 15 hours of work each day. Your driver needs off-duty time for lunch and/or dinner, as part of a break in the middle of the day, to allow the driver a couple hours of off-duty time for rest and/or nourishment. Lastly, each evening the driver must be off-duty 9 hours to secure the coach and sleep.
Why Is My Driver Not Idling The Coach
The driver may not be idling the coach for your comfort during the day or this evening as they are instructed to follow environmental regulations that prohibit motorcoaches from idling while picking up or dropping off passengers in certain cities and towns across the nation. We want to follow the law to avoid fines. We also want to be good stewards of our environment.
