    As long as it's a real bus and not, like, a van.

    When you say "shuttle bus", you mean full-size bus, not a 15-passenger van, right? Bus is definitely safer. Van is not.

    Did that make your trip easier?

    When are you sailing? I'll look for your boat. LOL

    Yes, that definitely makes things easier. Just have to verify what kind of "bus" the "bus" is. We're leaving in mid-June, looking forward to some time in Seattle also, we love it there (we live in California).

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    A city bus, school bus, charter bus. Buses use compartmentalization instead of seatbelts.

    I would, in a heartbeat, take the kids on a shuttle. Busses are an entirely different beast on the road. The physics of a bus in a crash is totally differnt than a car.
