Have questions about how renting a wedding shuttle bus works? We've got answers!
Prices vary from trip to trip. We recommend playing around with our booking tool to find out what a bus rental would cost for your wedding. You can test out a few wedding transportation scenarios with no obligation to accept your quote. When we calculate your quote we include the driver’s time, industry-standard tip, and taxes, so you can budget with all the information.
Your Houston wedding transportation can be serviced by a school bus, minibus, coach bus, or mini coach bus. When you choose the bus that’s best for you, consider the amount of passengers you’d like to transport, the length of time you’ll be on the road, and the amenities you require. If your wedding is in the summer, the A/C on the coach bus is essential.
Earlier is always better. We recommend booking your bus at least six months in advance, unless you’re getting married in the fall. September through November are the most popular season for nuptials in Texas, so we suggest you book your bus at least nine months in advance. That way you’ll get a bus at the best rate.
Put yourself in your guests shoes. They’ve stepped off the plane at George Bush International. It’s hot. They’re in a city they’ve never been to. And they have to find their way to a hotel. This is not the best head space. Guide your family and friends into the wedding festivities by meeting them at the airport with a charter bus.
The rehearsal evening could take you from a ceremony in the Museum District to a trendy restaurant in Midtown and back to the hotel in Galleria/Uptown. That’s quite a few opportunities for stragglers to get lost. Keep everyone together and on schedule with a charter bus rental for your rehearsal evening.
If staying on schedule is important for the rehearsal dinner, it’s vital on the big day. It’s harder than you’d think to get a group of wedding guests (especially when your numbers get up into the hundreds) from point A to point B. When you provide a shuttle bus, guests won’t have a choice but to show up at the right place at the right time.
Rent a party bus and throw a bachelor or bachelorette party, Houston-style. A party bus will take your groomsmen or bridesmaids to some of H-town’s favorite activities. Book a table at a dueling pianos bar or bring your putters to a Top Golf driving range. However you choose to treat the bride or groom, use a Houston bus rental to take the fun on the road.
Brunch at the Bloom & Bee in the Post Oak Hotel and a rejuvenating morning at the Milk and Honey Spa is the perfect way to get in the wedding spirit. A Houston charter bus ensures that all your out-of-town guests get from venue to venue without worrying about parking or directions. Depending on the size of your bridal shower guest list, rent a school bus or minibus for the occasion.
The engagement party is where is it all begins. It’s the parents’ chance to celebrate the newly affianced couple and get everyone ready for wedding season. Set the VIP tone for the whole affair by picking up your guests from the hotel in a school bus rental. Charter buses help avoid the parking issues and GPS hiccups that come along with multiple cars. Our booking specialists can plan a route with multiple pick-up points if you’re guests are staying at different hotels.
Once you decide on the kinds of services you’d like to offer your guests (shuttle service, airport pick-up, etc.), it’s time to select the bus to match your needs. Use Our Quick Guide to Choosing a Bus Type to help make your decision. For more advice on charter buses, read our Ultimate Guide to Bus Rentals.
