Why Rent a Charter Bus in Baton Rouge?
Planning a group trip can be time-consuming. You have to organize the lodging, dining, and itinerary—not to mention transportation. Shofur can easily take the transportation off your plate if you’re traveling with a large group, but we do understand that solo travelers or smaller groups may not need a charter bus rental for certain types of trips. Check out these different ways you can travel around Baton Rouge:
- Capital Area Transit System (CATS): Baton Rouge’s public bus system offers affordable rides with fares starting at $1.75 one way. There are 21 bus routes throughout the metro area for riders to use. Taking the CATS bus can be a cost-efficient way to travel, but transportation isn’t always reliable. Navigating the bus system can also be difficult for out-of-towners or those in a large group.
- Capitol Park Trolley Service: Baton Rouge’s trolley is a wonderful way to see the downtown area without breaking the bank. Riding the trolley is completely free! If you have a large group, though, finding space on the trolley can be difficult. Groups traveling outside of Downtown Baton Rouge will also need to find an alternative way to travel.
- Uber, Yellow Cab, and Lyft: Taxis and rideshares are convenient ways to travel in most of the U.S. You can hail a private ride at any time, and you won’t have to worry about making multiple stops like on a public bus. But as convenient as rideshares and taxis might be, travel groups with more than 6 people will have to secure several vehicles. This can be tricky to organize and may throw off your itinerary if each vehicle arrives at a different time.
- Private Charter Bus Rental: Although a bus rental in Baton Rouge may be expensive depending on your trip, you’ll have a convenient and private ride the entire time. Shofur’s bus rentals come with a professional driver to handle the road for your trip. You can even choose a bus model based on your group’s size and travel needs. Request a minibus with WiFi and power outlets for a small bachelorette party, or request a charter bus rental with onboard restrooms and TVs with DVD players for a school field trip. You’ll have the exact transportation you want when you need it, where you need it.
Baton Rouge Wedding Shuttles
Getting married can simultaneously be one of the most amazing and stressful events in a couple’s relationship. You have to find your venue, hire a caterer, build a guest list, and so much more. Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about how your guests will get to your Baton Rouge venue. Shofur offers wedding shuttle bus rentals for ceremonies of all sizes. Whether you need a minibus rental for your intimate wedding at The Gatehouse or a fleet of full-sized bus rentals for a massive ceremony at Nottoway, Shofur won’t let you down. A wedding shuttle bus rental can keep your guests from getting lost and can also help alleviate the stress of traveling if your venue is a relatively far trip for your guests.
Business Event Transportation Around Louisiana
From special conference transportation to employee shuttle services, we’ll make sure professionals across all industries have the rides they need around Baton Rouge. Event planners hosting conferences at the Baton Rouge River Center may want to consider organizing a transportation service for event attendees. Traffic can easily become gridlocked in some parts of Baton Rouge, and having hundreds of conference attendees driving around downtown isn’t helpful. Instead, book a charter bus service to pick conference attendees up at their hotel. We can also provide daily, weekly, or monthly shuttle services for local businesses who want to give employees an easy ride to work. Request a bus rental with WiFi, power outlets, and reclining seats for riders to work or relax on the road.
