Charter Bus Rentals For Every Occasion

Hosting a wedding in San Diego? What about a corporate convention or a field trip? Or just a good, old-fashioned family gathering at a Padres game? Whatever the occasion may be, we’re here to help you feel confident about how your event plays out, and we believe that smooth, comfortable group transportation is key.

Instead of asking passengers to bring their own cars or relying on public transit, you can transport all guests in comfort and safety with a private bus rental. Book a full-sized motorcoach for a large group or a compact minibus for a small group.

Once they’re on board, everyone can enjoy some entertainment with WiFi and televisions with DVD players. Make announcements with an on-board PA system, and keep aisles free of clutter with overhead storage space. And, most importantly, ensure everyone stays safe from the California heat with air conditioning. Need any extra add-ons, such as ADA accessibility? Just let your reservation specialist know, and we’ll make sure you’re paired with the perfect bus for your group.

Host an Unforgettable Event

Planning a large gathering in San Diego, like a wedding or a corporate convention? We know that it can be difficult to move a large number of people through a busy city with no hang-ups. Luckily, moving large numbers of people is our specialty!

When it comes to event travel in San Diego, you’ve got a few options.

  1. You can ask guests to drive themselves to your venue. This is definitely the lowest-cost option for you, and it requires little planning. But, if you’re hosting at a venue with limited parking, guests might need to circle the area to find a spot, and this could delay their arrival.

  2. You can encourage guests to use rideshares to circumvent a lack of parking. But this could increase costs for your guests.

  3. You can ask guests to use MTS—another low-cost option for all parties. If you’ve got a lot of out-of-towners coming in for your event, make sure you share a public transportation map and some insider knowledge so that they don’t get lost!

  4. You can book a bus. We know we’re biased, but hear us out: a bus can keep all group members together, provide curbside pick-up and drop-off, and run on your schedule. It’s a great option for a shuttle service to quickly move guests through town, and it’ll be especially handy if your event involves alcohol in any amount. A professional DD plus a comfortable bus makes for a great shuttle service at your San Diego event.

If you’re feeling it, give our team a call at 619-629-0453 to discuss your group transportation options!

Enjoy a San Diego Vacation

It’s no secret that San Diego is a prime vacation destination. With its sunny weather, beautiful beaches, top-notch craft beer, and a blend of cultures, there’s something to pique the interest of everyone in your group. Whether you just want to lounge and sunbathe or you’re ready to explore the outdoors, we’ll make sure your group can get around without missing a beat.

Once you’ve put together your group’s itinerary, you can leave the transportation to us! Instead of waiting for rideshares to become available, enjoy curbside pick-up services that operate on your time. We’ll move your entire group as one unit so you won’t have to worry about some members getting lost. Schedule multiple sightseeing stops in one day, or keep it simple with a morning beach drop-off and an evening beach pick-up (pro tip: buses have a lot of extra room for tents, coolers, and inflatables—bring them all along!). Either way, we’ve got you covered.

Experience San Diego’s Biggest Events

Attending a big event, like San Diego Comic-Con or San Diego Pride? Your group probably won’t want to drive with all of the hubbub going on, and while public transportation is an option, the crowds might make it difficult to navigate. Booking a compact minibus for your group can help alleviate some of the stress of getting around—you’ll be able to stay in a hotel that’s a bit further from the commotion, and you’ll have a dedicated ride to bring you to and from the festivities every day. Your driver will drop you off wherever you’d like and will be there to pick you up when the day is finished.

Educational Trips in San Diego

From field trips to college tours (and everything in between), Champion Charter Bus is prepared to transport students of all ages to any educational spot in San Diego. Use your bus’s televisions and DVD players to show an educational video on a long journey, or let WiFi access keep everyone quietly entertained. Power outlets can be requested for an especially long journey so that everyone can charge their devices.

Planning a campus tour? Don’t leave your students to drive themselves. Let them focus on enjoying each campus while a professional handles the driving. Your bus driver will drop you off at every campus’s visitor’s center and ensure you’re transported around town with ease.

Frequently Asked Questions in San Diego

How much will my bus cost?

The price of your San Diego bus rental is determined by a number of factors, like the time of year, the total distance traveled, the type and number of buses needed, and more. For the most accurate pricing, call our specialists at 619-629-0453 and receive a free and personalized quote!


Where can my bus rental go?

Champion Charter Bus’s large network of buses means we can serve trips throughout the West Coast—whether you need transportation to Los Angeles and Santa Monica or a bus for a long haul out to Phoenix or Las Vegas.


When should I book my bus rental?

While we can accommodate last-minute reservations, we recommend calling to book at least three months in advance to ensure your ideal bus rental is available. If you’re planning to embark during peak travel season—between March and May—consider booking six months ahead of your trip, just to be safe.


What kind of bus rental is right for my group?

Minibuses work wonders when it comes to maneuvering city streets and providing quick, efficient shuttles for small- or medium-sized groups. Those traveling over long distances, however, may appreciate a charter bus rental for its luggage compartments and comfort-minded amenities like reclining seats and entertainment systems. If you’re still not sure what bus is right for your trip, our reservation team will be happy to help when you call to book.


How do I rent a bus in San Diego?

Before you call the Champion Charter Bus team at 619-629-0453, be sure you know your headcount, your itinerary, and what amenities you may want aboard your bus.
