Party Bus vs. Charter Bus Rentals
Renting a bus is always a fun and efficient option for getting a lot of people from point A to point B. If you browse our site, though, you’ll probably be overwhelmed with all the different options – who knew there were so many sizes and types of party and charter bus rentals? Let us help you decide which you need based on the event.
Keep in mind that party buses are a lot like limousines on the inside. The seating is less like those of a traditional bus and more like continuous leather couches that line the perimeter. This leaves for a lot of standing room for passengers to, quite literally, party! Most of them to make it feel like a nightlife location, so when the bus is stopped, passengers can even do some dancing. Some party bus models are equipped with small refrigerators or coolers in which to keep refreshments, and entertainment is never an issue: there will usually be a TV/DVD player setup and always a radio or CD player so you can pump some tunes.
As you can see, party buses are more for night-time events; you will probably find them more appropriate for socializing on the way to a wedding or before going out for a night on the town. Some people spend their whole night on the party bus! It’s fun just to play some music, ride in style, and go from place to place.
Charter buses are a bit more formal and made for comfort. They have reclining seats that are organized in rows so more people can have a comfortable ride. Many are equipped with restrooms as well as televisions and sometimes even WiFi for maximum luxury on a long ride. For this reason, charter bus rentals might be more appropriate for day trips with an hour or more of travel time; this way, the ride itself won’t be too taxing on the passengers and they can relax on the way home after their long day. Schools, travel agencies, and businesses might consider renting one when planning an event.
