Travel Pittsburgh Roads with a CharterUP Bus Rental
As one of the more congested Northeastern cities in the country, driving in Pittsburgh can be challenging. The “City of Bridges” is known for a confusing road layout with—you guessed it—lots of bridges (a total of 446, to be exact).

While, unfortunately, we don’t have the power to make Pittsburgh traffic disappear, CharterUP can help make dealing with it a lot less stressful and uncomfortable. A private charter bus rental service with us can turn traveling busy city streets into a comfortable, satisfactory experience. Book a bus with plush, reclining seats, air-conditioning, an onboard restroom, and WiFi, then sit back and relax while you rely on a professional driver to navigate your way.
