Why Rent a Bus in El Paso?

El Paso is not as crowded as most other major cities in Texas. However, while traveling within city limits is a piece of cake, the city is quite far away from other attractions and major cities—so if you need a lift into or out of the city, you’ll need a ride that can keep you comfortable for the long haul. Out of all the ways to traverse El Paso, a private bus rental is the most flexible option when it comes to where you can go and how long it will take to get there.

But if you’d like to consider all your options when it comes to getting around El Paso, here are some popular modes of transportation:

●      Sun Metro: Affordable and environmentally friendly, El Paso’s public bus system can be helpful for smaller traveling groups. However, the public transit system here offers fairly limited routes. If your group needs transport beyond the downtown area, you’ll need to consider other options.

●      Taxis and Rideshares: El Paso is home to a number of companies that provide taxicab services, as well as Uber services. However, hailing multiple vehicles to accommodate medium- to large-size groups can run up your travel expenses and jam up your schedule—especially during a convention or event where surge rates and wait times are sure to spike.

●      Private Bus Rental: When you rent a bus service through Shofur, you’ll have total control over when and where your ride takes you. From compact minibus shuttles to long-distance charter bus rentals, we can pair you with the ideal motorcoach for your group’s size and amenity needs, so everyone can arrive all together and comfortably to every destination on your itinerary.

Just let a professional driver take the wheel and rest easy knowing your friends, family, and loved ones will have a reliable shuttle all night long!

Be sure to ask your representative about the premium amenities that can be included in your rental—your guests will surely appreciate posting their favorite photos over free WiFi, freshening up in a private onboard restroom, jamming to a party playlist over a state-of-the-art entertainment system, or simply kicking up their heels after a night of dancing.

The museum boasts full accessibility to all visitors, with wheelchairs and mobility aids available upon request, supplementary materials for the blind, deaf, and hard of hearing, and tours available in a variety of languages. Also, admission is always free!

Parking near this downtown museum can be tricky if you plan to arrive in personal vehicles, but your group can skip the multiple parking fees by allowing a private bus rental to drop you off right at the entrance.
