The Best Selection of New York City Bus Rentals
A full-size charter bus—or motorcoach—is your go-to ride for big groups traveling in New York City. With capacity for up to 56 passengers and their personal belongings, a charter bus rental is an ideal choice for groups like a corporate team, school band, or athletic team who need to travel all together around the city or over a long distance. Passengers can take advantage of features like an undercarriage luggage bay, overhead storage, and onboard restroom, and enjoy amenities like reclining seats, WiFi, and TVs with a DVD player.
With a minibus rental, NYC is your oyster. This compact vehicle is perfect for a smaller group that needs to navigate busy city streets at any time of day. You can book an 18-passenger, 20-passenger, or 25-passenger minibus rental to meet short-distance and local transportation needs, such as a birthday party in Midtown, event shuttle service, or airport transfer. Minibuses can have a variety of luxury amenities—like flat-screen TVs, PA system, AM/FM radio, leather seating, and more—and always come with the services of a dedicated, professional bus driver.
Top 10 Places to Visit in New York City
1. Statue of Liberty
Plan a trip to the world famous Statue of Liberty, a must-see attraction and national monument that’s been inspiring travelers immigrating to the U.S. since it was first erected in 1924. Book a NYC charter bus to drop off you and your group at a ferry landing in Battery Park in Manhattan or Liberty State Park in Jersey City, then cruise across New York Harbor to Liberty Island. Once there, you can tour the Statue of Liberty Museum, climb to the crown of Lady Liberty for stunning city views, and expand your adventure to include Ellis Island and the National Museum of Immigration.
2. Central Park
Sprawling Central Park is simply teeming with things to do for New York City visitors and locals alike. Rent a charter bus in NYC and plan a trip to visit attractions like the Central Park Zoo, Belvedere Castle, and Strawberry Fields, or spend a day enjoying outdoor activities like boating on the lake or biking through the park. In the winter, you can go ice skating at Wollman Rink, and in the summertime, enjoy an open-air concert or Shakespeare in the Park performance.
3. Yankee Stadium
During your next trip to NYC, purchase group tickets and head to Yankee Stadium for a baseball game! Historic Yankee Stadium is home to the MLB’s New York Yankees, one of the most beloved and legendary teams in professional baseball, and is a must-see destination for any sports fan. You can plan a dedicated stadium tour that guides you through iconic locations, or visit the New York Yankees Museum to see historic artifacts and uniforms, and World Series trophies.
4. Times Square
The bright lights and hustle and bustle of Times Square never fails to amaze New York City visitors. Book an NYC bus rental and plan a visit during the day to enjoy tons of unique shopping and dining experiences, like customizing your own chocolate at M&Ms World or grabbing lunch at a Halal Guys food cart. But visit at night to see the streets light up with iconic flashing billboards and glittering street signs. Times Square is also right next to the Theater District, so you can pass through on your way to a Broadway show!
5. Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Met is the largest museum in the U.S. and home to more than two million works of art. As the most visited museum in the Western Hemisphere, plan ahead to register a group visit at The Met Fifth Avenue in Manhattan or The Met Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park. With so much to see, advise your group to do some research and plan which artworks they want to see most. At The Met Fifth Avenue, you won’t want to miss seeing world-famous works like Monet’s waterlilies and The Temple of Dendur.
6. Rockefeller Center
Rockefeller Center is one of the most iconic locations in all of New York City. Frequently spotted in movies and TV shows, it’s where you can go ice skating at The Rink at Rockefeller Center and see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree light up in the winter, as well as visit the Top of the Rock observation deck that offers 360-degree views of the city. Rent a New York City charter bus and visit to enjoy shopping, dining, and public art events, or plan a Rockefeller Center Tour of the building’s history and architecture. You can also organize tours of NBC Studios or Radio City Music Hall.
7. Theater District
The Theater District is where to go in NYC if you want to see a Broadway show! It’s home to dozens of historic theaters, like the Lyceum Theatre, Broadway’s oldest continually operating theater built in 1903, and the Eugene O’Neill Theatre—built in 1925 and showcasing break-out musical hits like Spring Awakening and The Book of Mormon.
