Why Rent a Charter Bus in Pittsburgh?
There are several ways to travel around Pittsburgh, and you’ll need to consider which option will be best for your group. Here are a few of the most popular ways to get to and from destinations across Pittsburgh:
- Public transportation: The Port Authority of Allegheny County operates bus and light rail services in the Pittsburgh metro area. Port Authority also operates unique funicular railway routes, including the historic Monongahela and Duquesne Inclines. The "T" is the city’s light rail system, and its 3 lines and 27 stations offer easy transportation options between Downtown and Pittsburgh’s southern suburbs. Bus routes are also available throughout the city, with around 100 stations. Utilizing public transport is affordable with fares starting at $2.50, but navigating the system and making transfers can be tough with a large group of people.
- Rideshare services and taxicabs: If you need a lift for a small group from spots like Pittsburgh International Airport, hailing a taxi or rideshare may be your best option. You can hail a ride at a moment’s notice and don’t have to worry about sharing a vehicle or navigating on your own. Unfortunately, as convenient as rideshares and taxis are, they don’t offer the most space for large groups of passengers. If you have more than 6 people in your group, you’ll need to request more than one rideshare or taxi, which can get messy and difficult to organize.
- Private charter bus rentals: A bus rental is one of the easiest transportation options to accommodate big groups of people in Pittsburgh. Shofur bus rentals are outfitted to accommodate each travel group’s unique size, itinerary, and travel requests. Depending on your trip, a Pittsburgh bus rental can get pricey, but you’ll be traveling in complete comfort. Request a minibus rental or full-size charter bus rental operated by a professional driver dedicated to your trip and schedule. You can also request a bus rental with amenities like WiFi, reclining seats, power outlets, and TVs with DVD players.
