Why Rent a Charter Bus in Nashville?

A charter bus is one of your best options if you’re traveling with a large group and want to travel with ease. Nashville is a tourist-heavy city and navigating town with a multi-car caravan will likely get quite stressful, very quickly. If you’re planning to use rideshares or public transit around Nashville, you may also have a hard time corralling your group onto buses or XL rideshares. Before you plan your trip to Nashville, review these group transportation options around the city:

●      Nashville MTA: Nashville public transportation only includes a bus system but is widespread in the city’s center. Riding the bus in Nashville costs $4.00 for adults and $2.00. Although you’ll see plenty of buses around downtown Nashville and surrounding neighborhoods they aren’t always efficient. Taking the bus often requires several transfers and can end up turning a 20-minute car ride into a one-hour bus commute. If you’re running on a tight schedule, you’ll likely want to skip taking Nashville MTA.

●      Yellow Cab, Checker Cab, Uber, and Lyft: Both taxis and rideshares are great options for small groups traveling around Nashville who may not want to drive themselves. These options offer private rides but can get very expensive if you’re planning several stops during your trip. You’ll also likely need to request more than one rideshare or taxi if you have a large group of more than 6 passengers.

●      Nashville Charter Bus Rentals: Renting a bus in Nashville is one of the best ways to ensure you have a ride fit for your group’s size, needs, and itinerary. Shofur’s Nashville charter bus rentals come in a variety of sizes, including compact minibuses for small groups and full-size coaches for bigger groups. Your bus rental will come with a professional driver who’s dedicated to your group’s trip and schedule. A charter bus can get pricey depending on your trip but costs can be kept low by splitting rental costs per person.

Weddings in Nashville

Couples and wedding planners can count on Shofur for day-of wedding transportation around Nashville. Renting a wedding shuttle can make a big difference when it comes to keeping your guests on-time and having your event start according to schedule. Guests won’t have to worry about struggling to find parking in busy areas around The Bell Tower or other popular venues. Have a wedding shuttle drop everyone off at your venue so they won’t have to circle streets or lots. Working with a bus company like Shofur means you’ll have pros handling the transportation logistics to keep your special day running smoothly.

Even if you need a safe ride around The Gulch or SoBro for a bachelor/ette party, we’ve got you covered with a built-in DD between bars and lounges. Everyone in your party can fully enjoy your last hurrah without worrying about how they’ll get home.
