Why Rent a Bus from Shofur?

The Charlotte Central City area in the evening

Like many major cities in the south, Charlotte is a transportation-reliant area. Downtown Charlotte is relatively walkable, but if you’re traveling elsewhere in the city, you’ll need wheels. Other than taking personal vehicles, here are a few ways for your group to travel around Charlotte:

  • Charlotte Area Transport System (CATS): Charlotte’s public transportation system includes 70 bus and light rail routes. Fare starts at $2.20 each way and can be an affordable way to travel. Keep in mind that managing a large group on public transport isn’t the easiest and taking a bus or train isn’t guaranteed to be comfortable. Groups planning to be out late for private events or celebrations like bachelor and bachelorette parties should know that CATS does not run 24/7.
  • Cabs: Companies like Crown Cab, Royal Cab, and Yellow Cab Co service the Charlotte metro area and are usually utilized for visitors traveling to and from Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Cabs aren’t always readily available and fares can quickly add up.
  • Rideshares: Rideshare services are widespread and convenient travel options in  Charlotte. You can conveniently call an Uber or Lyft almost anywhere in the city, but large groups will need to call multiple XL rideshares. This can be tedious to organize, and it’s difficult to ensure everyone arrives at the same time.
  • Private Charlotte bus rentals: Renting a bus is one of the most customizable transportation options in Charlotte. Shofur offers minibus and charter bus rentals to suit groups small and large alike. A private bus rental also includes a personal charter bus driver working with your Charlotte travel schedule. Although a bus rental can be pricey upfront, there won’t be any hidden costs and groups can customize a ride to their exact needs.

Wedding Shuttles in Charlotte

If you’re planning a wedding in Charlotte, a wedding shuttle service can be arranged to keep your ceremony running smoothly. As you organize your beautiful wedding ceremony at The Duke Mansion or The Ballantyne, Shofur can help your guests travel comfortably and on time. Out-of-town guests may be unfamiliar with navigating Charlotte roads, which can easily throw off scheduled arrivals. Guests planning to drink and be merry at your reception will need to designate a drive, inevitably leaving someone out of the open bar. Ensure everyone has a fun time with a wedding shuttle bus rental service and designated charter bus drivers!
