Choose the Right Bus for Your Trip

Whether you’re organizing or attending an event, you need to figure out your travel plans.  Buses are an affordable choice that can be easily customized to fit your trip needs. One of the benefits of renting a bus is all the options to choose from.

Not sure which one to go with?

Here’s a quick guide to the most common types of buses:

School Bus

Flashback to your childhood: vinyl seats, windows down, breeze flowing through, excitement in the air. The school bus is the quintessential means of transportation from our youth and your quick trip down memory lane. It’s also an economical option that’s best suited for local travel and small to mid-sized groups.

Coach Bus

Designed for larger group travel and long distance excursions, coach buses provide more luggage space and extra comfort. They’re a popular option for various events ranging from music festivals, sports tournaments, and hackathons to conferences.

Mini Coach Bus

Mini coach buses are ideal when you’re looking for an option that sits in between a coach bus and a mini bus. You’ll typically get most of the features of a coach bus (aside from a washroom), but with a smaller seating range.

Minibuses are perfect for moving smaller groups during short trips. They’re your best bet for local events requiring small shuttles like weddings, conferences, or corporate retreats.

Party Bus

Whether it’s for a wedding, bachelor/bachelorette party, or birthday, go the extra mile with a party bus for your guests during those special occasions. Upscale amenities like entertainment system, prime leather seating, LED lighting, and ice coolers all come together to make it a night to remember!
