Why Rent a Bus in Virginia Beach?
We might be biased, but a private bus rental is the best way to keep your group together and comfortable while traveling in or around Virginia Beach. The city is an especially popular destination in the warm summer months, meaning roadways and parking lots can get very crowded. Rather than navigating it all in a multi-car caravan, opt for a personalized bus rental, and everyone will be in one vehicle, wherever you go.
If you’re still not sure what kind of group transportation is right for your passengers, here’s an overview or popular ways groups get around Virginia Beach:
● The VB Wave: This trolley system associated with the city’s public transit serves much of the beachfront and major attractions of Virginia Beach. However, like all modes of public transit, larger groups may have trouble staying together while riding these lines—especially if you have small children in tow. Also, if your group is going somewhere that’s not near the beach, this service is not the one for you.
● Taxis and Rideshares: Many taxicabs, Ubers, and Lyfts serve Virginia Beach. If your group doesn’t mind splitting into multiple vehicles and waiting around for your rides to show up whenever you need it, these options can be convenient. However, keep in mind that fares and rates can skyrocket during busy holiday weekends, conventions, and festivals.
● Minibus or Charter Bus Rental: If your group wants an all-in-one transportation plan that’s taken care of before you even depart for Virginia Beach, a private bus rental is the way to go. Shofur’s services include a professional driver to handle all the driving and parking details for you, and your bus can be outfitted with amenities like WiFi, TVs, power outlets, and plush, reclining seats for ultimate comfort during your travels. Also, Shofur bus rentals have transparent pricing you’ll know before your trip—no need to worry about hidden fees or unexpected expenses during your trip!

If a dreamy beach wedding is on your mind, Virginia Beach will definitely deliver. And when it comes to keeping your big day running smoothly, Shofur can deliver as well! Rather than having your guests run late to your ceremony because they can’t find parking spots, letting them wait around for a rideshare after a night of dancing, or draw straws to determine a DD, hook them up with a wedding shuttle service. Your bus rental will run on a schedule you create and can include any number of amenities to keep your loved ones happy—from free WiFi and power outlets to TVs, a DVD player, and onboard restrooms.
Of course, your wedding plans in Virginia Beach don’t have to start and end on your wedding day. With Shofur on your side, your bachelor and bachelorette getaways will go off without a hitch!

Efficient Shuttles For Sporting Events
While Virginia Beach doesn’t have a major league team to call its own, the city is a popular destination for amateur and minor league tournaments.
If your team is in town for the annual Sand Soccer Tournament, one of the East Coast Surfing Championships, or a local golf competition, let Shofur take the wheel. The professional drivers in our network can handle all the navigation and parking logistics before and after your match, so all your team or club will need to focus on is securing the win. And with plenty of storage space to stash your coolers, equipment, and luggage, no one has to cram into a seat with their duffle bags and safety gear. Just stretch out, watch a hype video on a flatscreen TV, and get your head in the game!
Is your group cheering on your favorite teams instead? We can help you there too. Fan groups love the ease and comfort our gameday bus rentals provide. With a built-in, professional DD and a reliable pickup/dropoff schedule that runs on your time, you won’t have to worry about finding parking spots near each other or answering any “where are you?” texts before the game.
