Have questions about how renting a wedding shuttle bus works? We've got answers!
The cost of a Washington DC wedding shuttle bus varies from wedding to wedding. The calculation is based on bus availability, the season, the distance you’ll travel, and the amount of time you’ll require a driver. Use our online booking tool to generate a personalized quote for your special day.
We’ll take care of that! The driver’s time is a big part of the quote we provide. We also include his or her industry-standard tip and any necessary accommodations. Our quotes are comprehensive and complete so that you can budget your wedding with all the information you need.
In Washington DC, you can rent a school bus, coach bus, minibus, or mini coach bus for your wedding. To make your choice, you’ll need your best-guess-guest-list, confirmed dates, and locations. You’ll also need to decide on the level of comfort you’d like to provide. A good rule of thumb: If you’ll be on the bus longer than 2.5 hours, rent the luxurious coach bus.
We recommend booking your wedding shuttle bus at least six months in advance, unless your special day falls during DC’s peak wedding season (September-November). If that’s the case, you’ll want to book even earlier. Take advantage of our Book Now, Pay Later option to reserve your bus before availability decreases.
Dulles International is outside of DC’s downtown core and quite the trek for out-of-towners. An airport pick-up charter bus is a great way of getting your guests to their hotels. It’s the VIP treatment they deserve, especially after they’ve paid for airfare. When you reserve your bus rental, make sure you book a bus with enough space for luggage.
It’s easy to forget about the rehearsal dinner. That’s understandable. You’ve got a pretty big day coming up. But it’s important to think about the transportation logistics for your rehearsal evening. A minibus or mini coach bus should be sufficient to handle your wedding party’s needs, transporting them from the ceremony location to the rehearsal dinner and back to the hotel.
Get your guests from the ceremony to the reception. It sounds like a simple task. But with all the out-of-town guests, overly-talkative uncles, and excited kiddos, it can be difficult to rangle this crowd. Talk to Bus.com’s booking specialists about wedding shuttles. They’ll help you organize the perfect itinerary.
Keep your groomsmen or bridesmaids together with a Washington DC coach bus rental. The wedding party will thank you for taking care of transportation so they can sip champagne on the way from Sax Supper Club in the downtown core to Keswick Hall Golf Club in Charlottesville.
Begin your pre-wedding celebrations with a set of events that are all about the bride. Take the blushing beauty to the Ritz-Carlton Spa before meeting her guests at a venue like Malmaison or the Loft at 600 F. A minibus or school bus can transport guests between venues and drop them off at their hotels to rest up before wedding day.
Set the tone for the upcoming wedding season with a stylish celebration of the new fiancés. Treat your guests like VIPs and cover their transportation to the venue with a minibus or school bus, depending on the size of the group. They’ll be pleasantly surprised when the school bus turns onto their street and whisks them away.
