Why Rent a Bus in Fort Worth?
If you’re planning a visit to Fort Worth, it's important to have a solid transportation plan for you and your group. Whether you’re staying in town to catch a rodeo or you’re hopping over to Dallas to watch a Cowboys game, you don’t want to have to worry about how you’re going to get around. Opting for a private bus rental will allow your crew to travel in luxury without the hassle of adhering to public transport schedules or traveling separately to fit everyone in.
If you’re on the fence about what transportation is best for your trip, here is a breakdown of the popular methods used to get around Fort Worth:
- “Molly the Trolley” Downtown Circulator: The trolley system in Fort Worth lets you get around the downtown area for free and is a good option if your group is planning to stay in one district for most of the day. If you have bigger plans, you’ll need to go for a more flexible option.
- Trinity Rail or Bus Service: Trinity Metro has both bus and train routes that run citywide, hitting many of the city’s popular districts. Affordable and convenient, these routes allow you to snag an all-day pass for $5 per person. However, you lose scheduling flexibility for your activities by going for this option, as you will need to plan around the available routes to ensure you can make it where you need to go on time.
- Walk or Bike: If you’re staying in one area for the day, Fort Worth is a fairly walkable city. If you want to get some exercise while you get around, you can use their bike share program, B-Cycle, to wheel around the town. However, you want to keep the Texas heat in mind if you go for this option—the average high in the summer is 95 degrees, so it may not be sustainable for full-day activities.
- Private Bus Rental: If you want to make sure your group stays together from start to end, a private bus rental is your best option. Buses from Shofur are an all-in-one solution to your transportation needs. Your professional driver will go where you want to go when you want to go, allowing you to plan your itinerary based on the things you want to do, not the time your transportation is available. Your group will enjoy top-notch amenities, making sure you are comfortable for your entire journey, and you won’t have to worry about getting separated in a new place.
Weddings in Fort Worth
Whether you’re taking advantage of the city’s lush outdoor settings or you’re opting for a Western-style reception at one of the historic estates in town, Fort Worth is a beautiful backdrop for your special day. Wedding planning can be stressful, so let the team at Shofur take care of your transportation needs for you so you can tick one more thing off of your list before the big event.
Getting a wedding bus rental for your guests makes sure that everyone makes it to your venue on time. We will help you craft a transportation plan that ensures your guests have access to reliable and safe transportation for the entire event. They won’t have to decide who is the designated driver or try calling enough rideshares to cram everyone in.
If your venue is close by, we can book you a minibus shuttle that can hold 18 guests at a time and easily navigate downtown streets. If your ceremony is outside the city or you’re having a large wedding, a full-sized charter bus can accommodate up to 56 guests at one time, allowing everyone to arrive in fewer trips.
Ahead of your big day, arrange for a minibus to pick up your friends and family from out of town flying into DFW Airport, getting them to their hotel comfortably. With spacious overhead storage, they won’t have to worry about lugging bags around using public transport or using an expensive car service.
