Why Rent a Bus in Wilmington?

Wilmington has a few group transportation options to choose from if you’re coming into town with more than just one carload of people. Each has its pros and cons, so here are a few points to keep in mind while you travel:

  • DART Public Buses: The DART bus system services stops in downtown and greater Wilmington and can get you to places like malls, hotels, the county courthouse, Delaware College of Art & Design, the Delaware Theatre Company, and more. Bus fares can be paid in cash (with exact change), or you can get the DART Pass mobile app before your trip. Bus rides are a great way to explore the city, and some drivers might be able to give you local recommendations. But if you’re traveling with a large group, it can be hard to keep everyone organized if you can’t all fit onto one bus.
  • Rideshare Services: Uber and Lyft are both available in Wilmington and can be called on-demand, but large groups might need to wait for an XL car to become available or split into multiple cars. Because of this, your group might not be able to arrive at your destination at the same time.
  • Shofur Charter Bus Rental: With a charter bus rental, your group can load onto one vehicle, let a professional driver take the wheel, and enjoy ADA-accessible streamlined transportation service to every stop on your Wilmington itinerary. Sit back in reclining seats, enjoy onboard WiFi, stay cool with air conditioning, and keep luggage and carry-ons tucked away for a clutter-free space. We’ll follow your itinerary to a T to keep your day running smoothly and efficiently.

Our Favorite Group-Friendly Destinations in Wilmington

Nemours Estate

Great for: Architecture lovers, private groups

Address: 1600 Rockland Rd, Wilmington, DE 19803

Phone: (302) 651-6912

This French neoclassical mansion and surrounding estate is a favorite for locals and visitors for good reason. Nemours Estate’s 200-acre grounds are home to the 77-room mansion, gorgeous French gardens featuring a maze of hedges and a reflecting pool, and a collection of vintage automobiles. Visitors can explore the house and surrounding gardens and even have picnics on the grounds every day of the week except Monday.

Charter bus tip: Your Shofur bus driver can drop you off at the entrance to the estate, but we can’t drive you through the grounds. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, and when you’re finished with your tour, we’ll be ready to give your feet a break and drive you to your next stop!

Wilmington’s Best Breweries

Great for: Families, foodies, and craft beer fans

Craft beer lovers are in luck–Wilmington has a growing craft brewery scene, with lots to explore for the times when you’re ready to sit down, stop exploring, and enjoy a drink. Iron Hill Brewery–now an established chain in New England and along the east coast–got its start in nearby Newark, Delaware and now hosts a location right in Wilmington. Other local faves include Stitch House, Wilmington Brew Works, Brew HaHa!, and Hangman Brewing Company, many of which offer extra food & drink options for kids and lots of space to spread out and enjoy a sunny afternoon.

Charter bus tip: Whether you’re adding a brewery stop to your itinerary or dedicating a day to sampling Wilmington’s best brews, Shofur has you covered with a designated driver and safe transportation so no one has to worry about getting back home.
