Your rental bus can pick you up, drop you off at the Met, and then scoop your group back up when you’re finished.

Why charter a bus for the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Your logistics will vary depending on which New York Met location you intend to visit, but there is one thing that’s consistent across all three locations: parking can be a hassle. You’ll be enjoying the Met along with many other guests, so the last thing you want to worry about is finding or paying for parking. The best way to ensure a safe and stress-free visit is to rent a charter bus to take you and bring you home. Depending on your group’s size and purpose, you can choose from school buses, coach buses, or mini buses. You can also schedule shuttle service for your visit if that suits your group’s needs.
