Why Rent a Charter Bus in Salt Lake City?
We get it: not every travel group will need a charter bus rental. Small groups with just a handful of people can easily travel around Salt Lake City in a personal vehicle, through a rideshare service, or on public transportation. If you have a large group though, you’ll want to think about easy and stress-free options to keep everyone together. Take a look at these ways your group can travel around Salt Lake City during your trip:
● Salt Lake City Public Transportation (UTA): Salt Lake City has a commuter train (Frontrunner), light rail service (TRAX), a streetcar, and a bus system that services a big portion of the metro area. UTA offers affordable fare at $2.50 per person and can be convenient for solo travelers or small groups headed to destinations like the Salt Lake City International Airport or the University of Utah. But if you’re traveling with a big group that’s on a tight schedule, waiting around for a train or bus for 30 minutes may not be feasible.
● Rideshare Services and Taxis: Taking Uber, Lyft, or local taxis can be a quick way to travel if you need to hail a vehicle at a moment’s notice. Fares can fluctuate quite a bit though, and if you have a large group, you’ll need to request more than one vehicle.
● Salt Lake City Charter Bus Rentals: Shofur’s bus rental services are customized to each travel group’s unique needs. Smaller groups can rent a minibus for up to 20 people and larger groups can reserve a full-sized charter bus rental for up to 56 people. Your bus rental can include comfortable amenities like reclining seats, WiFi, and TVs with DVD players. Each private bus rental also includes a professional driver who will be working on your time and itinerary, so you won’t need to rush to catch a bus or wait around for multiple rideshares.

They won’t arrive late after making a wrong turn or struggling to find parking in busy areas like Downtown Salt Lake City. Book a wedding shuttle bus rental and leave the rest up to Shofur!
