Have questions about how renting a wedding shuttle bus works? We've got answers!
The largest portion of your wedding transportation cost is the driver’s time. That includes the time it takes your driver to get from the bus depot to your departure point. Bus.com gives you access to our North America-wide network of bus operators so you can find a local bus company and save on the driver’s rate.
With the exception of our sprinter van charter rentals, all Bus.com charter bus rentals automatically include a professional driver. Furthermore, we’ve vetted all our bus operators under a set of strict guidelines developed to ensure exceptional service, and your driver’s time, industry-standard gratuity, and any necessary accommodations are all factored into the price of your bus. Simply book your Boston wedding bus rental with our easy to use online booking tool, and we’ll take care of the details.
You can rent a coach bus, mini coach bus, school bus, mini bus, or sprinter van in Boston. To make your choice, first determine the size of your guest list and the length of time you’ll spend on the road. If you’ll be traveling for longer than three hours or would like a luxurious vehicle to perfectly match a formal wedding background, a coach bus is likely your best bet. Since most wedding shuttle trips are short and sweet, you may decide on a minibus, mini coach bus, or a playful, colorful, and cost-effective school bus for transporting your wedding guests instead.
For most events, we recommend reserving your bus at least six months in advance. But, if you’re booking a bus during Boston’s peak wedding season (late summer to early fall), we recommend you try to book your bus even earlier. The average Boston wedding takes thirteen months to plan, so aim to reserve before the halfway point if possible.
