Since 1991, Bill’s Bus has safely delivered college students between Isla Vista and downtown Santa Barbara and Goleta in an effort to prevent drunk driving. Craig Jenkins took the wheel of Bill’s Bus in 2004 and has carried on this important role and expanded its offerings to include private charters, wedding transportation, and wine tours.
While the company has grown under Craig’s leadership, he recognized that most companies are more than the products or services provided, especially when a company has a deep-rooted mission, like Bill’s Bus. He wanted to evolve this mission and worked with BFAS and its attorneys, Michael Fauver and Lauren Joyce, to establish a non-profit. This organization, Arrive Alive, will serve to facilitate the prevention of drunk driving, catering specifically to students. The mission of Bill’s Bus has always been to provide a service that makes the community a safer place and ensure students have options that make responsible decisions easier. With a mission like that, we are happy to help steer them in the right direction.
