Tell us a little bit about your business.
Antique Coach Excursions (ACE) was founded in 2014 and is a small, family-owned charter company offering two unique, fully restored antique coaches, both originally from California. ACE is all about service – we don’t just move people, we embrace them! Our period-correct dressed driver will greet and assist passengers in boarding, give them a brief history of the coach, and point out notable Pittsburgh spots along the drive – all while keeping everyone laughing!
What makes your work unique?
Remember when everything seemed to have more style? Chartering ACE ensures a unique experience for you and your guests. Why not make the transportation something your guests will talk about long after the day is over? Older guests will reminisce about riding these coaches to work or town to shop, while younger guests will wow over them for the first time.
We relieve out-of-towners the stress of driving in an unfamiliar city, while eliminating any parking and DUI worries. It’s all part of this unique experience.
What is your ideal client like?
Anyone who is looking for something different or planning a vintage wedding or other event would love our services. We’re proud to be LBGTQ friendly as well!
What size parties can you accommodate?
Our Coach 465 is a 1957 GMC transit coach and seats 46. It has been restored to the paint scheme used in the area in the 1950s and 60s. While there isn’t air conditioning, the windows do open. It’s great for photos too!
The Coach 373 is a 1969 GMC Starliner tour coach and holds 52 with rows of high back seats. You’ll notice the unique roof windows that allow for a great view! This coach is air conditioned and the windows open for great photo ops! Just 88 of this type of coach were made and this is the only known one left in operation!
Is there a minimum rental time?
Yes, a four hour minimum is in place.
