As the largest bus model available for rent, the 56-passenger charter bus has all the bells and whistles you need for a comfortable long-distance trip. Store luggage in undercarriage bays, keep carry-ons in overhead racks, eliminate pit stops with onboard restrooms, and keep cool with air conditioning. Entertainment options like TVs with DVD players and WiFi will also help your trip fly by!
With many of the same amenity options as the 56-passenger charter bus (just in a slightly smaller package), the 48-passenger charter bus is great for groups who want to settle in for a comfortable trip. Enjoy onboard entertainment, plenty of space for luggage and carry-ons, reclining seats, and climate controls to keep everyone cool and comfortable.
Mid-sized charter buses such as this can service long-distance trips or in-town shuttle services. Settle in for a west-coast road trip from San Diego to San Francisco to Seattle, or make sure event attendees or tour group members stay comfortable in between stops! Your bus driver will follow your custom itinerary, no matter where your travels take you.
Provide a shuttle service for your family, religious organization, school, or office with a 36-passenger minibus. Carry-on items like backpacks and purses can stay neatly tucked away in overhead racks while passengers enjoy WiFi, TVs with DVD players, climate controls, and more. With this bus by your side, everyone can enjoy a comfortable trip.
Minibuses like this are typically used for shorter trips or in-town shuttles–but that doesn’t mean they don’t include comfortable amenities for longer trips! You can still request WiFi, TVs with DVD players, reclining seats, power outlets, and more to keep passengers cool and entertained during your journey.
If you don’t need quite as much space as a full-size charter bus can offer, opt for a smaller 25-passenger model. Purses, backpacks, and other personal items can still stay tucked away in overhead racks, and you’ll keep cool with onboard air conditioning. Need any additional add-ons? Let us know when you call to book, and we’ll make sure you get the best bus for your trip!
Use a 20-passenger minibus as a shuttle service to special events, corporate gatherings, religious services, retreats, camps, and more all over the west coast. A professional bus driver will handle navigating and parking so you can focus on spending time with your fellow passengers!
Don’t let this minibus’s size fool you–it still packs a punch. Outfitted with overhead storage racks, air conditioning, WiFi, reclining seats, and more, you’ll travel in complete comfort while your professional bus driver zips you through city streets, college campuses, office parks, and more.
This compact minibus makes a great option for a quick airport pickup, a shuttle service to an offsite parking lot, or an easy ride to a mid-day luncheon. There’s enough space for each passenger to bring one carry-on item. While you ride, passengers can enjoy comfortable seats while a professional bus driver takes the wheel.
As the smallest bus option we charter, the 8-passenger minibus is great for small groups who need something a little bit sleek. And with more space than the family car, you won’t have to separate your group into multiple rideshares or personal cars. Book an 8-passenger minibus for airport transfers, Sunday services, and more quick trips around your hometown.
Small-scale wedding along the bayfront? Quickly shuttle your guests and loved ones with a minibus rental that can comfortably seat up to 25 passengers at a time. These compact shuttles don’t skimp on amenities either, so be sure to request an onboard entertainment system, free WiFi, and more to keep the celebration rolling between stops.

Frequently Asked Questions about Charter Bus Travel in San Francisco
Does San Francisco have any restrictions on charter buses?
Yes. Due to the old city streets, dense residential areas, and hilly roadways, navigating a motorcoach around San Francisco can be tricky if you don’t know where your driver can safely pick up and drop off your passengers. In broad terms, keep in mind that most of the northern tip of the city, the streets framing Alamo Square, the road along Ocean Beach, and most residential areas are off-limits. When in doubt, check out the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s map of where buses are prohibited.
Where can my charter bus pick my group up at the San Francisco International Airport?
SFO is not only one of the busiest airports in the region, but it is also one of the more group-friendly flight hubs on the West Coast. All four terminals feature designated “Meeting Points” outside of security where your charter bus driver can easily find and load up your passengers.
What’s the traffic like in SF?
According to the TomTom Traffic Index, SF is ranked as the fifth most congested city in the United States—though if you’ve spent any time traversing San Francisco streets, you could already guess that. To avoid the worst of rush hour gridlock, plan your itinerary so your group is off the road between 3 pm and 7 pm on weekdays.
What’s the weather like in San Francisco?
Located farther north in California than other major cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, San Francisco sees a more temperate climate throughout the year. Expect a Mediterranean climate, which means cool summers and wet winters. Consider packing extra layers and a raincoat for your San Francisco charter bus trip throughout this foggy city.
What are the largest annual events in San Francisco?
There’s almost always something on the calendar here in SF! When you think of “San Francisco,” you’ll most likely think of SF Pride—the biggest LGBTQ+ event in the country that takes the city by storm every June. But there are plenty of other celebrations hosted here throughout the year, including the Lunar New Year festivities in Chinatown, the Outside Lands music festival in the latter part of summertime, and San Francisco OysterFest in May.
