Philadelphia Wedding Bus Rentals and Shuttle Service
Philadelphia is one of America’s most expensive cities to get married in. The average wedding costs 40 grand. As a result, choosing a location in Allentown or King of Prussia is becoming increasingly hip. Charter a bus to transport your guests from central Philly to your out-of-town location. Or, if you’re shelling out for an epic downtown affair, organize a wedding shuttle service.
Have questions about how renting a wedding shuttle bus works? We've got answers!
There are a number of factors that go into determining the cost of your wedding shuttle service – the season, the availability of buses, and the amenities you desire. But, more than any other factor, the driver’s time is the biggest determinate. Use our online booking tool to find out what a charter bus rental would cost for your wedding.
When you book a bus through Bus.com, we take care of the driver. We do this so that you can focus on the fun parts of wedding planning, like menu tasting and cake tasting and champagne tasting. Our quotes include the cost of the driver, but also his/her/their industry-standard gratuity and accommodations.
While school buses are the most popular wedding bus rentals, there is so much more available for the Philly bride and groom. Yes, you can rent a school bus for wedding shuttles (They’re super cute!), but you can also rent a coach bus, a minibus, or a mini coach bus.
Most of the time, we suggest renting a wedding shuttle bus six months before you big day. But if you’re getting married during Pennsylvania’s peak wedding season (September through November), we recommend booking even earlier. Oh! And if your wedding falls on Philly Beer Week in early June, reserve your bus nine months in advance.
Coming to Philadelphia is probably a big event for many of your out-of-town guests. Welcome them to the Birthplace of America by meeting them at Philadelphia International with a charter bus. Keep everyone together from the very beginning and create a sense of celebration as soon as your guests step foot in Philly.
You may be responsible for fewer guests during the rehearsal, but there are just as many trips involved as the main event. Rent a minibus or mini coach bus to transport your wedding party, officiant, and photographer from the ceremony locations to the rehearsal dinner and back to the hotel.
Stragglers are the bane of every wedding planner’s existence. Nip that problem in the bud by ushering your guests between locations with a wedding shuttle service. When your guests have transportation covered, they won’t get lost and they stay on schedule.
