Glad Jim was there, and hopefully I can make it next week.

I wondered whether he could ballpark a couple of things -- maybe a limo
handles 4-6 people, a van 6-12, a small bus 10-20, etc. and maybe we
could get a price on each (maybe even including a standard bus (40?)).
I am assuming they would charge by the size of vehicle and not per
person because they would not have the chance to sell seats to other
I'd also prefer not to decide 6 vs. 8 hours now, but seek others
opinions. I don't know if what I'm asking is reasonable or
unreasonable, but if I called up the local bus company (TriBoro??), I'd
ask just the things I listed above.
