Why Rent a Charter Bus in Buffalo?

Organizing transportation for a few people can be easy but large group trips can be tricky to plan, no matter where you’re going. To keep your buffalo trip running according to schedule, you’ll want to make sure you know how everyone will be traveling. Here are some of the most popular ways to travel around Buffalo:

  • Public transportation: The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) has buses and rails that service the Buffalo metro area. If you’re traveling in Downtown Buffalo, public transport can be an easy way to travel. Buses and rails don’t service the city’s outer suburbs as often though. So if you want to travel affordably and your itinerary is keeping your group in the heart of Buffalo, public transportation may be the way to go.
  • Uber, Lyft, and other rideshares: Using a rideshare service is convenient but not always group friendly. Most rideshares can only accommodate 6 passengers at a time, which isn’t ideal for big groups running on a tight schedule. You’ll have to hail more than one rideshare and wait for each one to arrive.
  • Private bus rental: Large groups that need a timely transportation option around Buffalo should consider a bus rental. Shofur bus rentals are a comfortable option for groups of all sizes traveling around the Queen City. A minibus rental can help your tour group travel with ease, while a full-size charter bus rental is perfect for large business conferences. You’ll have a private bus with a professional driver dedicated to your travel needs and schedule.

Rent a Bus from Buffalo to Niagara Falls State Park

Niagara Falls State Park

Niagara Falls is only about a 25 minute drive from Buffalo and the beautiful state park shouldn't be missed if you’re in Upstate New York. On average, Niagara Falls State Park sees over 9 million visitors every year. This means massive crowds and possible parking problems on busy days like weekends. There are a few companies that offer pre-scheduled buses to Niagara Falls, but large groups may not have the easiest time snagging enough tickets to accommodate everyone. Instead, rent a private bus to the park! Hop on a bus rental with a professional driver dedicated to working according to your schedule. Have your driver park at Parking Lot 3 while your group explore sites like the Cave of the Winds and takes the famous Maid of the Mist ferry tour.
