About Us

The Big Red Bus company started its wheels rolling in 2006 in the beautiful little town of Palm Springs. Steven Donaldson was called on by the artist and entertainment community in the Desert to add energy and a special twist to many of their events and attractions and boy did he.

The owner Stephen was great to work with in planning the transportation for 72 kids for my boys Bnai Mitzvah. He arrived early and the kids had a blast! It is a safe way to transport all the kids from the Temple to the Party...
