Party Bus Rentals

There are few words on the internet that are more confusing than “party bus.” For some, it is what they know as a motorcoach. For others, it means a bus with the interior of a limo. In the bus industry, however, a party bus represents a coach or bus that has been designed to look like a limo on the inside. 

If you are looking for other types of transportation, see our definitions of a minibus or charter bus by clicking the links. Party buses can be a great time for groups of 20 or less and are often used for a night out on the town, corporate parties, concerts and sporting events. They are ideal any time your group is consuming alcoholic beverages and you want to avoid the liability of persons in your group getting home safely and avoid a DUI/DWI. These coaches or buses are not typically used for sightseeing or long tours.

Generally, party buses rated for a capacity of 15 passengers (including the driver) or less must have insurance levels of $1.5 million when registered with the USDOT and offer interstate travel.

Here are some important things to know before you book your party bus:

Because of their inherent nature as places to let loose, party buses are getting more and more difficult to insure. We encourage you to ask your local operator for proof of insurance before booking your party bus.
