Charter Party Carriers

Charter-Party Carriers (TCPs) charter their vehicles for the exclusive use of an individual or group.  Examples are a group charter of a bus to go to a sporting event or charter of a limousine for a wedding.  Also falling under the charter-party category are some specialized types of passenger carrier services:

  • Round-trip sightseeing service
  • Transportation incidental to another business
  • Transportation under contract to a business, government agency, or private school
  • Transportation of agricultural workers to and from farms
