Bus Rentals in Columbia for Private Groups

As the capital of South Carolina, Columbia is a thriving city with plenty to offer groups. Outdoorsy travelers can stroll through Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park or Sesquicentennial State Park for scenic views and hiking trails, sports fans can catch a Gamecocks game at the University of South Carolina, or visit the Saturday Soda City Market for food trucks and crafts by local artisans. We can help you and your group navigate the city with a Columbia bus rental for any occasion or group size.

Watch the Carolina Gamecocks with a Group

In town and looking to check out the local sports scene? We can help by getting you a charter bus rental to Williams-Brice Stadium at the University of South Carolina. The Carolina Gamecocks have an avid fan base among locals and visitors. The stadium and surrounding area fills quickly, making traffic heavier and parking harder to find.  With a charter bus rental, you don’t have to drink and drive, and will have a designated driver to handle the crowds and parking for you. Whether you are heading to the stadium to cheer on your team or exploring things to do nearby like the South Carolina Military Museum, you can book a Columbia charter bus through our platform to make traveling with a group around the stadium simple.

Simplify Transportation for Your Wedding Day

Book a wedding shuttle bus rental in Columbia and say “I do!” to easier logistics for your special day.

Use our network to book a minibus rental with a private bus driver for your bachelorette party, or a full-size charter bus rental to provide transportation from the wedding ceremony to the reception venue. Having a destination wedding? We also service areas outside of town if you need a Greenville charter bus or transportation elsewhere in the state.
