Why Rent a Charter Bus in Fresno?

The downtown Fresno skyline

Compared to larger cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, Fresno traffic is relatively calm. Large travel groups should still consider how they’re planning to get around town though. Thoroughly planning your group transportation can help you avoid unneeded travel-related stress. Here are some of the ways you can travel around Fresno:

  • Fresno Area Express (FAX): Fresno’s public transportation system has around 16 bus routes that service the metro area. While riding the bus can be affordable (starting at $1.25 per ride) schedules often change, and it isn’t always a reliable way to travel.
  • Rideshares services and taxis: Uber, Lyft, and several taxi services are available throughout Fresno. You can hail a vehicle on demand, and you’ll have a completely private ride. Unfortunately, most rideshares and taxis can only hold a maximum of 6 passengers. If you have a larger group, you’ll need to request and wait for more than one vehicle, which isn’t always the most convenient option.
  • Private Fresno bus rentals: A bus rental can be a great option for small and large groups alike. Minibuses are best suited for small groups, and full-size bus rentals can fit up to 56 passengers. Shofur bus rentals also come with a professional driver to keep your trip running smoothly and on-schedule. Each bus can also be equipped with additional amenities like WiFi, power outlets, and plush reclining seats. Although private bus rentals are convenient and comfortable, they can be expensive depending on your trip.

 

Wedding Transportation in Fresno

Wedding planning can quickly become overwhelming for couples. Don’t let guest transportation be one of your stressors. Shofur has handled wedding shuttle services for events across California, and we can easily handle transportation for your Fresno wedding. When you reserve a wedding bus rental, you won’t have to worry about guests getting lost or running out of parking space at smaller venues. A wedding shuttle will consolidate all of your guests into fewer vehicles that will be operated by professionals who will handle the navigation. Your guests will arrive with plenty of time to spare before your wedding, and everyone will have a designated ride on the way back.

On top of wedding shuttles to popular venues like The Manor Estate and Holland Park West, we can also provide private shuttles for bachelor and bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Field Trip Bus Rentals in Fresno

Shofur loves working with local schools, summer camps, and community organizations for field trips both long and short. We understand how important it is for parents and educators to know that their children and students are safe when partaking in off-campus activities. That’s why we prioritize safety above all else when organizing bus rentals for our passengers. Buses must pass several safety inspections and undergo preventative maintenance before they hit the road, and drivers are vetted thoroughly before they’re placed behind the wheel. Adults can rest easy knowing that kids will be traveling in good hands on their way to field trip spots in Fresno.
