Why Rent a Bus in Surprise, Arizona?

If you're planning a group trip around Surprise, Arizona, or throughout Maricopa County, there are a few ways to travel. Here are a few of the most popular ways groups of locals or visitors can travel around Surprise for special events:

  • Valley Metro: Valley Metro is the region’s public transportation system that operates a bus, light rail, and streetcar service throughout the Phoenix metro area. Utilizing public transportation can be affordable at $2.00 per ride but options around Surprise are more limited than those in the heart of Phoenix.
  • Taxis: Several taxi companies like Yellow Cab service Surprise, Arizona, and throughout the metro area. Taxi services can be convenient and private transportation options for small and medium-sized groups but if you have a large party, taxis may not be big enough. Hailing multiple taxis can be tedious, expensive, and inconvenient if you're traveling to multiple locations.
  • Rideshares: Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are easy transportation options to hail a ride when and where you need it in Surprise, Arizona. Similar to taxis, rideshares are convenient for timely private transportation. However, large groups will have to request multiple oversized vehicles. You’ll also need to request multiple rides for multi-stop trips, which isn't always cost-effective and can take some time if you’re on a tight schedule.
  • Surprise bus rentals: A private charter bus rental is one of the best transportation options for groups traveling around Surprise. The Shofur network includes minibus rentals for small groups and full-size coaches for up to 56 passengers. Booking a bus rental in Surprise will give your group the flexibility to travel on your own schedule and have comfortable onboard amenities like power climate controls, a clean restroom, WiFi, and power outlets. The cost of renting a charter bus may seem high upfront compared to other modes of transportation, but large groups will usually find them cost-effective when split per passenger.
