Why Book a CharterUP Bus Rental in New Orleans?

When it comes to efficient point-to-point transportation, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than a private bus rental. Rather than navigating I-10 in multiple cars, putting miles on your personal vehicles, or having to corral a large group of people through the city’s public transit system, everyone can hop aboard your private bus rental and let the professionals handle the rest. Every CharterUP bus reservation includes the services of a vetted and certified bus driver—so you can rest easy knowing your custom transportation schedule will run like clockwork.

New Orleans Sporting Event Transportation Made Easy

Whether you root for the Saints, the Pelicans, or a local college team, let your next game day be one to remember by letting the pros streamline your transportation plan! With a private bus rental on your side, your fan club and tailgaters will never have to worry about traffic into and out of their favorite stadium. Instead, a comfortable motorcoach can act as a home base for your tailgating plans and offer free WiFi, a clean restroom, and plenty of storage for coolers and tents. With their every need taken care of, your sports fans can focus on the game and celebrating afterward—not on parking logistics or cramming into personal cars.

Stress-Free Wedding Shuttles in New Orleans

Planning a wedding in the Big Easy? Let a private shuttle bus service make your nuptial transportation, well, easy! Rather than having guests run late, struggle to find parking, or have to call multiple cabs at the end of the night, having a private wedding shuttle will ensure everyone stays on time and safe throughout your New Orleans wedding events—even if your ceremony and reception are in separate venues.

In addition to the practical uses, a bus rental can make your NOLA wedding even more fun and memorable! Book your day-of motorcoach a day or two before the wedding so you’ll have plenty of time to decorate it with string lights and load up your favorite party playlists. With our marketplace’s hundreds of providers, you’ll also be able to find a ride that allows alcohol aboard—that way, your loved ones can keep the party rolling between bachelor/bachelorette destinations and after the big “I do.”
