The trendiest wedding bus is the school bus. There’s just something about those large yellow lovelies that make guests feel all warm and fuzzy. But just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Besides the school bus, you can also rent a minibus, mini coach bus, or the luxurious coach for your Chicago wedding shuttle service.
As the date of your wedding approaches, bus availability will start to decrease and the prices will increase. Take advantage of our Book Now, Pay Later policy to get the lowest price for your Chicago wedding bus rental. We recommend booking at least six months in advance, but if your date is during Chicago’s peak wedding season (September-early November), book even earlier!
Delight your out-of-town guests by organizing airport pick-up at O’Hare. Have your guests coordinate their incoming flights, and charter a bus to take them from the terminal to their hotel.

Rehearsal evenings can be an unexpected headache for the happy couple. Your guests might have to get from Uptown to West Loop to Wicker Park then back to Uptown in a single night.

If your guests don’t arrive at the reception in time for dinner service, your entire reception schedule will get pushed back.
