Why Rent a Bus in Vancouver, Washington?

There are a few ways for groups to travel around Vancouver, Washington with a group. Determining the best mode of transportation will depend on your group’s size and travel occasion. Here are a few of the most popular ways to travel around Vancouver, Washington:

  • C-Tran: C-Tran is the Clark County public transportation system that operates 27 bus routes across the region. Regional bus fares run around $2.50 per ride for adults. Riding the C-Tran can be cost-effective for travelers on a budget. Though if you have a large group or you're traveling on a tight schedule, you'll likely be limited to where you can travel in Vancouver by public transport.
  • Taxis: Vancouver Cab Company and Radio Cab are the two primary cab companies that service the Vancouver, Washington area. Taking a cab can be a simple transportation solution for solo travelers or small groups. Large groups of travelers may have a harder time traveling by taxi, especially when traveling with large pieces of luggage or equipment. 
  • Rideshares: Hailing a rideshare service is one of the most popular ways for visitors to explore cities like Vancouver. Rideshares offer travel flexibility and private transportation options. However, if you’re planning a multi-destination trip in Vancouver or long-distance travel can become unpredictably expensive with rideshares. Groups with more than 5 or 6 passengers will also need to request more than one rideshare to accommodate your group’s size.
  • Private Vancouver charter bus rentals: Booking a bus rental with Shofur will ensure your travel group has a personalized ride traveling according to your schedule and needs. A charter bus rental will be picked out to perfectly suit your group’s size, your itinerary, and any special request you need for a comfortable ride. The cost of a charter bus rental may seem relatively expensive up front, but can oftentimes be cost-effective for large groups. When you contact our team, we’ll help you find the right type of charter bus rental in Vancouver for your trip..
