Why Rent a Bus in Shreveport?

As one of the three largest cities in the state of Louisiana, Shreveport is a bustling city with plenty of things to do. And if you are looking to get around Shreveport with a group, here are a few of your options:

  • Shreveport Area Transit System (SporTran): Shreveport’s public transit system offers more than 30 fixed bus routes that cover major downtown areas such as downtown Shreveport, the Louisiana Boardwalk, Shreveport Regional Airport, and various residential neighborhoods. SporTran also provides intercity service to neighboring towns and cities, including Bossier City, Haughton, and Stonewall. Keep in mind, however, that public transit routes are fixed on a certain schedule, and navigating crowded buses with a larger group isn’t always the easiest feat, especially in an unfamiliar city. 
  • Taxis and rideshares: Shreveport has the option for both traditional taxis and rideshares like Uber and Lyft. Some of the taxi companies operating in Shreveport include Yellow Checker Cab Company, Red River Taxi, and City Cab. While taxis and rideshares operate 24/7, they can have limited availability during certain hours, and fares can be higher depending on the availability. 
  • Private Shreveport bus rentals: Renting a bus in Shreveport for your group transportation needs is a foolproof way to explore the city with a group. A private bus rental offers complete flexibility with your route, allowing you to choose exactly when and where you go. It also allows complete privacy for your group, in addition to amenities like WiFi, A/C, and cushioned seats to make the ride more enjoyable. A Shreveport bus rental also comes with a highly trained and thoroughly vetted charter bus driver who knows how to navigate the city streets and parking lots with ease. In addition, charter bus rentals can come in different sizes, from 18-passenger minibus rentals for smaller groups all the way to 56-passenger charter buses for large-scale occasions.
