How can a charter bus help you?

A charter bus lets you keep your entire group together while you’re traveling. You’ll also receive a free, personalized quote before you book, so you’ll know the cost of your trip in advance. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about navigating a new city, since your San Diego charter bus rental comes with a professional, certified driver.

What are charter buses like?

We offer minibuses for up to 25 people and full-size charter buses for up to 56 people. Full-size charter buses feature storage space beneath the bus rental, and both types of bus include comfortable seats, climate control, and large windows. Your San Diego bus rental may also feature WiFi, TVs, and power outlets if you request them.

Are charter buses safe?

Charter buses are one of the safest ways to travel. Multiple studies show that charter buses have lower rates of accidents than cars, in large part because the driver is a certified professional who has to meet extensive requirements. Full-size charter buses also come with strong metal chassis, mirrors that give the driver a good view of the road, and elevated seats so passengers are above the point of impact in case of an accident. Starting in 2016, all newly manufactured charter buses are also required to have seatbelts.

How will I know my driver is qualified?

All drivers in the San Diego Charter Bus Company network have a commercial driver’s license. That means they have a clean driving record for the past 10 years (or however long they’ve been driving). They’ve also had a DOT physical and passed a Skills Test, Vehicle Inspection Test, Basic Controls Test, and Road Test.

Even once a bus driver has their CDL, they’ll still need to have a physical every 2 years and undergo regular alcohol and drug testing. They’ll also need to keep accurate records of their time spent driving and make sure they rest for 8 hours after every 10 hours on the road. That means your driver will be in good health and well-rested before they drive your group.

Are charter buses accessible?

They can be! If you need an ADA-accessible charter bus rental, just let San Diego Charter Bus Company know. We can find your group a bus with a wheelchair lift, wider aisles, railings in the bathroom and along the stairs, and a wheelchair seating area. All of our buses also come with comfortable seats, climate control, and room to stretch out, which can make them more comfortable than cars or planes for people with disabilities or chronic illnesses.

What types of groups rent charter buses?

We’ve provided San Diego bus rentals to a huge variety of groups, but here are a few types of groups that we often help out: 

Students Going on Field Trips

Teachers often bring their students to San Diego to tour the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Botanic Garden, or the USS Midway Museum. At San Diego Charter Bus Company, we know safety is a top priority for school groups. When you book with us, your students will have a well-maintained bus with the latest safety features and an experienced driver.

Sports Fans

Whether you’re headed to Petco Park to cheer on the San Diego Padres or to Pechanga Arena to root for the Gulls, let San Diego Charter Bus Company provide your transportation. Your fan group won’t have to drive around the stadium looking for parking. Instead, you can ask your bus driver to drop you off at the entrance, and they’ll find a parking spot for the bus after they do.

Business Travelers

Many companies count on San Diego Charter Bus Company to take their employees from the airport or their hotel to meetings and trade shows. We can provide a sleek charter bus or minibus with power outlets and WiFi to help your team keep up with work. We also serve local companies that want to offer daily shuttles for their employees.

Wedding Parties

With its striking natural beauty, San Diego attracts many couples looking for a place to hold their wedding. Getting all of your guests from the ceremony site to the reception and back home at the end of the night can be stressful, though. Take one task off your plate by booking a charter bus rental for your San Diego wedding. A professional driver will make sure your guests get to all of your celebrations safely while you focus on spending time with the people you love.

San Diego Comic-Con Attendees

Getting around San Diego during Comic-Con can be near-impossible, and no one wants to have their cosplay crushed on a public bus or their day ruined by the stress of navigating traffic. Let a professional take care of the driving while you and your friends lean back on an air-conditioned charter bus and talk about which panels you want to see.
