Why Rent a Charter Bus in Newark?
Driving anywhere in New Jersey is notoriously stressful. From bumper-to-bumper traffic to angry drivers, there’s a lot that can make traveling around Newark a horrible experience. Add a big group of people to the equation and you’ll have even more stress on your plate. Before embarking on your Newark trip, you’ll want to closely consider the ways you can travel around the city.
- NJ Transit: The New Jersey public transit system includes a bus, light rail, and train. You’ll find several stops for each form of transportation in Newark, which makes utilizing public transit relatively easy. The fare for NJ Transit varies depending on your origin stop and which form of transportation you’re taking. Using NJ Transit can be a great option for solo travelers or small groups, but if you’re traveling with a dozen or so people, it may not be the most efficient option. You’ll have to corral everyone on and off buses or trains and cross your fingers that you’re at the right stop.
- Taxis, Uber, and Lyft: Hailing a transportation service on demand can be a great option to travel around Newark on your own time. Unfortunately, hailing a taxi or rideshare can get very expensive depending on when and where you’re traveling. Between traffic congestion and needing to hail more than one vehicle for your large group, you may be paying a hefty fare. You’ll also likely need to wait some time for your taxi or rideshare to arrive if you’re traveling for a big event or in a congested area.
- Private charter bus rentals: Booking a bus rental in Newark means your entire group will have a private ride and a dedicated driver for your trip. You won’t have to look for seats to accommodate everyone on the train or wait for an extended time for several rideshares. Shofur bus rentals come in various sizes so you won’t have to worry about paying for extra space that you don’t need. You can also request a bus rental with amenities like WiFi, power outlets, and reclining seats to stay comfortable while traveling on your own time.
