    Minneapolis-Tampa is almost 1600 miles, roughly a 25 hour drive.

    The one company that quoted prices said $500 for 5 hours, and even then it said short trips.
    Going and coming back would be a minimum of $5000.
    If you filled the bus up with 56 passengers, it would only cost about $100/person, but I bet their actual quote would be much higher.
    I am guessing that the price would be even higher.
    When my company chartered a bus to take a group from Fargo to Minneapolis for the home opener, it cost $1200 plus the price of meals for the driver, plus tip.
    If we took at trip from Minneapolis to Florida, we need a minimum of two drivers, possibly three.
    Plus we would be responsible for their lodging and meals for the entire trip.
    Some bus charters will station a driver at the halfway point, and switch out, which makes it a little cheaper for us.

    All in all my guess is that it would be between $7500 and $10,000, probably closer to the 10K mark.
    And a coach charter only seats 43, so we would be looking at around $250 per person.
    Still cheaper that plane or train, but the price is quickly getting close.
    That is also assuming we could get 40 people willing to spend the $250 each.
    If we only got 30 people, it would be closer to $330...

    I still like the idea, but I am guessing it is unrealistic to get 40 people who want to spend the money to go down...

    The train is looking better and better to me.
    Long trip, but comfortable if you do it right and safer than driving.
    And decent meals are included - not like on a plane.
