Why Rent a Bus in The Bronx?

Getting around the Bronx (or anywhere in New York City, for that matter) can be a bit overwhelming if you aren’t a frequent visitor. And, if you’re traveling with a large group or with kids, keeping up with everyone can be difficult if you aren’t in one vehicle. But, there are still a few group transportation options to choose from while you’re in the Bronx. Check them out before deciding what might be best for your group:

  • The Subway: The New York City Subway system has 70 stations in The Bronx, so it should be pretty easy to find a stop near your destination. Most subway rides cost $2.75, but price can vary slightly based on a few factors. If you’re in town for more than a week, you might want to consider buying a 7-day pass. The subway is a relatively accessible form of local transportation, and it’s part of the whole “New York City” experience every visitor should go through once. But if you’re traveling with a large group, staying together on the subway can be difficult. 
  • MTA Bus: New York’s MTA Bus system runs through the Bronx as well, operating multiple bus lines for about $2.75 per ride. If you purchase a MetroCard for the Subway, you’ll be able to use that to pay for a quick bus ride too.
  • Taxis and Rideshares: Taxis and rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are available on-demand in the Bronx. Unlike the subway or the bus, these can be called right when you need them, and you probably won’t have to wait too long for one to arrive. But most cars can only hold about six passengers at a time, so if you’re with a large group, it can be hard to get around in one piece.
  • Bronx Bus Rental from Shofur: Shofur can provide charter bus and minibus rentals to any group traveling through the Bronx! Choose a compact minibus for small groups or a custom fleet of full-sized motorcoaches for groups that exceed the capacity of one bus. And when it comes to price, we’ll never spring any surprises on you—you’ll know exactly how much your bus rental will cost when you get your free quote. Call today at 1-800-436-8719 to learn more!
