Why Rent a Bus in Augusta?

Like many sprawling Georgia cities (Atlanta and Savannah included), Augusta is easiest to navigate by car. But not everyone can or wants to put miles on their personal vehicles or be the DD for the duration of the trip.

So what are your options? For groups traveling in Augusta, here are some popular methods of transportation where no one has to drive—although some modes are better suited for different types of groups:

  • Augusta Transit: The city’s public transit system is relatively robust (compared to other Georgian cities of its size, anyway). The nine routes cover many major attractions within city limits, so as long as your destination is within walking distance of downtown, the public bus system can take you there. The standard fare is $1.50, with discounts available for seniors and folks with disabilities. However, figuring out a new public transit system can be tedious for a group of out-of-towners and those traveling with a lot of children.
  • Taxis, Ubers, Lyfts: Major rideshare services and a few taxicab companies operate in Augusta and the surrounding area. These vehicles can take you nearly anywhere there’s a road and can be hailed on an as-needed basis—a flexible option if your itinerary isn’t set in stone. That being said, most rideshare vehicles and taxis can only accommodate up to six passengers at a time, which is not ideal if your large group doesn’t want to split into multiple rides.
  • Private Augusta Bus Rental: Unlike other transport options in the city, a charter bus, minibus, or sprinter van will allow your passengers to ride together as one unit. And while this option tends to be more expensive, the price your Shofur reservation rep offers before your trip is all-inclusive and transparent, so there are no hidden fees or unexpected expenses along the way. Besides, everyone will have all the comforts to keep them entertained and refreshed while on the road! Just let us know what you need on your rental when you call 1-800-436-8719, and we can set you up with WiFi, onboard restrooms, TVs, and more.

Travel to the Masters with Ease

Drawing more than 50,000 people every year, there are few things in Augusta bigger than the Masters Golf Tournament. And if you’re lucky enough to score tickets to one of professional golf’s biggest events, the last thing your fan group will want to worry about is getting to the green on time. Gaining access to the tournament is hard enough—tickets have been known to sell out years in advance—and finding a parking spot near the action is no easier. On top of that, there is no shuttle service available, so unless you get there hours early to grab a parking spot, you’ll probably want a lift to the action. 

That’s where Shofur comes in. Our specialist team knows all the ins and outs of reserving the perfect ride for groups big and small. We’ll gladly set your fans up with a reliable bus rental that can drop everyone off near the entrance gate. Don’t worry—your professional driver will handle the parking logistics while you enjoy the tournament!

 

Seamless College Campus Transport

When you think of Georgia college towns, cities like Athens may come to mind first. But there’s much to be learned from Augusta’s schools—which include the college with the state’s most prestigious public health programs and a well-acclaimed HBCU.

So whether you’re planning a campus tour for your prospective students or a fun outing with your Greek organization, club, or alumni association, a reliable ride is key to keeping every collegiate group trip running smoothly. Let Shofur find the perfect bus rental to suit your group’s size and itinerary and how long you need service, so no one has to sweat the navigation and parking logistics. Instead, everyone will arrive on time and refreshed to every event—on campus and off.

 

Augusta University

Address: 1120 15th St, Augusta, GA 30912

Praised for its public health programs and the state’s only dental school, this public university is one of the largest institutions in central Georgia. Campus tours are capped at 8 people per tour for the time being, so be sure to factor multiple tour time slots into your visit if you’re here with a larger group of prospective students.

 

Paine College

Address: 1235 15th St, Augusta, GA 30901

This private, Methodist college was first established in 1882 and still provides liberal arts, education, and business administration programs to its majority Black students to this day. Hour-long campus walking tours are available for groups of prospective students and should be reserved through the university at least 2 weeks in advance.

 

Augusta Field Trip Transportation

Traditional school buses might be a mainstay when it comes to local field trips, but that doesn’t mean they’re the most comfortable rides in the world. Especially for groups traveling over long distances—whether you’re coming into town from Columbia or heading into ATL for a competition—a charter bus rental is the most comfortable way to get to your educational destinations. Your students will be able to store luggage and backpacks in the bus’s undercarriage, leaving them plenty of room to spread out, watch a movie on the TV screens, stream music on their phones with the onboard WiFi, or catch some shut-eye between your Augusta field trip stops.

 

Augusta Museum of History

Address: 560 Reynolds St, Augusta, GA 30901

Learn more about the history and culture of the Central Savannah River Region by exploring a perfectly preserved 18th-century home or an exhibit about the impact of locomotive travel on rural Georgia. Groups of 10 or more can tour the museum with a docent for $2 per visitor, as long as the tour is booked at least one week in advance.

 

Morris Museum of Art

Address: 1 10th St 2nd Floor, Augusta, GA 30901

When it was first established in 1985, this nonprofit museum was the first to highlight and celebrate exclusively southern art and artists. Nowadays, groups can tour the halls lined with pieces old and new—from traditional folk art to contemporary abstract paintings.

 

Phinizy Swamp Nature Park

Address: 1858 Lock and Dam Rd, Augusta, GA 30906

This 1,100-acre nature park is full of unique wetland wildlife—black-bellied whistling ducks, zebra swallowtails, American alligators, and more—that is sure to pique your nature lovers’ interest. Stop by the visitor center to pick up maps or arrange a guided tour before exploring the cyprus-lined trails webbed across the park.  

 

Stress-Free Wedding Shuttles

On your big day, you’ll want to relax and listen to the chime of wedding bells—not your phone chiming for the tenth time because no one knows where to park. Whether you’re planning a small ceremony at a local chapel or a big get-together at a South Carolina country club, leave your nuptial shuttle plans to Shofur and a pro driver from our network will keep your loved ones all together and on time, no matter what events fill their wedding itineraries. Whether you need quick shuttles between your ceremony and reception venues or a reliable DD throughout your newlywed-to-be’s last hurrah, our team will work with you to create a smooth and unforgettable wedding experience for everyone—one bus rental at a time!

 

The Reserve Club

Address: 3000 The Reserve Club Dr, Aiken, SC 29803

This rustic yet elegant country club offers a variety of outdoor venues and courtyards for ceremonies, receptions, and rehearsal dinners of all shapes and sizes.

 

Sacred Heart Cultural Center

Address: 1301 Greene St, Augusta, GA 30901

This former Roman Catholic church in the heart of Augusta now serves as a stunning backdrop for all kinds of formal events held in the soft glow of ornate stained glass windows and the shadow of towering Gothic architecture.
