The party could soon be over for party buses decried as “rolling tinder boxes” filled with inebriated patrons dropped off at bars and nightclubs to drink even more.

At the behest of downtown Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd), the City Council’s License Committee on Thursday advanced a crackdown that would literally require those bus drivers to take “corrective action” that ranges from evicting the inebriated offender to terminating the trip and returning all passengers to the “point of origin.”

    The difference in the price the customers pay for their limo/party bus has always been the higher the rate the more behaved the customers are. The cheaper the rate, the wilder the customer becomes. Simple solution, age limit party buses and get the junk cheap hourly rate vehicles of the street and reduce the problems. The clubs can also have a rule that party bus patrons must reserve bottle service and vip seating area. (Simple solution) In los angeles no club wants a party bus with people that have already consumed their beverages and are only going into the stablishment to take space
