Why Rent a Bus in Wichita?

Wichita, Kansas, USA downtown city skyline at dusk.

Small groups of travelers will find a few convenient transportation options around Wichita. Though, if you’re traveling with a large group, exploring different transportation options may be more limited. As you plan your group trip or event in Wichita, consider these ways to get around town:

  • Wichita Transit: Wichita Transit is the city’s public transportation system, operating buses and ADA-accessible vans along 17 routes. The city also operates the free Q-Line trolley that travels along one route through Downtown Wichita. Taking public transport can be affordable, with paid fares starting at $1.75, but routes can be limited and may not be a timely option for groups traveling on a tight schedule.
  • Rideshares and taxis: Uber, Lyft, smaller rideshares companies, and local taxis are available throughout Wichita. Hailing rideshare can be quick and easy for small groups but if you have more than 3 or 4 travelers, you’ll need to request an extra-large vehicle or multiple cars. This might be inconvenient and expensive, depending on your group size and travel schedule.
  • Wichita charter bus rental: A minibus or charter bus rental offers a personal transportation option tailored to your group’s size and itinerary. Bus rentals can include amenities like WiFi, plush seats, and personal climate controls for comfortable travel wherever you’re headed in Wichita. Though a charter bus rental may have a high seemingly high upfront cost, it can oftentimes be cost-effective for large groups.

Our Favorite Group-Friendly Destinations in Wichita

Looking for destinations to add to your Wichita itinerary? Here are a few of the city’s most popular group-friendly destinations to consider for your trip:

Exploration Place

Great for: school trips, summer camps, youth groups

Address: 300 N McLean Blvd, Wichita, KS 67203

Phone: (316) 660-0600

Exploration Place is Wichita’s premier science museum and a top spot for educational groups or families traveling with kids.

This famed 44-foot statue was created by Comanche/Kiowa artist Blackbear Bosin and is located in Veterans Memorial Park. The COR-TEN steel statue stands atop an elevated rock pedestal where the Big and Little Arkansas rivers meet. Keeper of the Plains stands as a tribute to Kansas’ Native American community. We highly recommend visiting the park and seeing the sculpture in the evening when it's illuminated by fire drums at the base.
