Why Rent a Charter Bus in Little Rock?
Traveling with a group can take quite a bit of planning. From securing field trip forms for students to organizing a schedule for business trips--- there’s a lot to think about. Having to secure transportation can add to unnecessary stress to an already hectic planning schedule. When you book a bus rental from Shofur, you’ll be working with transportation professionals who can take a lot of stress off your plate. Whether you’re Little Rock locals or you’re from out of town, Shofur will have all of your group transportation covered.
If you’re not 100% sure about needing to rent a charter bus, check out these forms of transportation around Little Rock:
● Rock Region METRO: The city’s public transportation system includes several bus routes, express buses, and a streetcar rail. Using Little Rock’s public transportation system can be a cost-efficient way to travel around the city at $1.35 to $2.70 a ride. Although it’s affordable for a small group of travelers going to one stop, it isn’t the most efficient way to travel for big groups going to multiple locations around the city.
● Yellow Cab, Ken’s Cab, Uber, and Lyft: Hopping in a cab or rideshare is a great way to travel when you have 6 or fewer passengers. You can hail a ride on your own time and get a vehicle to yourself! If you have a bigger group though, getting a ride may be a bit difficult. You’ll likely need to hail several XL rideshares, which can rack up bigger fees and your group will need to split up.
● Charter Buses: A charter bus rental in Little Rock can be customized to fit your group’s exact needs. Your private charter bus will be outfitted to your passenger count and unique itinerary. Small groups can be paired with a minibus, while larger groups can rent a 56-passenger bus with plenty of space. A private bus rental can also include additional comforts like onboard WiFi, restrooms, power outlets, TVs with DVD players, and reclining seats by request. Depending on your trip, renting a charter bus can get expensive but the cost-per-person can oftentimes be cost-effective for many groups.
