If you are of legal drinking age or older then yes, absolutely you can drink in the buses. They're party buses after all. Our beautiful buses even feature on board bars for your convenience.

How late can I wait in order to rent one of your vehicles?
As late as you want to or need to, provided of course, that the vehicle you need is available and has not been rented by someone else. There is no limit on the length of rentals with us. We operate 24/7 all year, including holidays.

To get a price quote all you have to do is give us a call. Yes, it's that simple. Just call us any time day or night and provide a few basic event details and we can tell you how much a rental will cost.
How many people can fit into a party bus?
Our party vans and buses range in size from 15 passengers all the way up to 42 passengers. If you're simply looking for a ride to the airport or for a day of shopping, we also offer luxurious shuttle vehicles with seating for up to 6 passengers.
Is it really expensive to rent one of your party buses?
We believe that we provide the biggest bang for the buck in the luxury transportation industry. We try to keep our vehicles extremely competitive as well. Your best step is to contact us and let's discuss the possibilities. Our amazing customer service representatives are waiting to ask you a couple of simple questions like where you will be picked up and how many people will be in your group. Based on this basic information, they will be able to help you with the perfect party bus for your event and what it would cost you.
What kind of features can I expect to experience on one of your party buses?
We have installed some great amenities with which you can have a load of fun as you travel around in one of our vehicles. We realize that you will probably be bringing on board some of your favorite cold drinks and libations so we have provided granite topped bar areas with built-in coolers which we will fill with ice. Comfort will not be a problem as you sit down or lay back on the cushy leather wraparound seating. If you have a group that enjoys dancing, you will find an exotic wood floor complete with a dancing pole. Be prepared to be blown away by the concert quality sound system with CD/MP3/iPod hookups. If multimedia is more your speed, you will find high definition flat screens with DVD capabilities. And to create the party atmosphere right from the beginning, we have installed LED color changing lighting which will bring a smile to every face. You can see the reason that we are the best in the business.
Is there a difference between a limousine and a party bus?
A limousine is what you are probably used to seeing. It is usually a very long car that is more often than not white. They are the ultimate in classy appearance but they are limited in terms of movement and capacity. A party bus can have a much larger capacity and allows people to stand up and move around, even dance.
Do you offer discounts or coupons?
Not normally. We do a lot of research and footwork in order to set our prices to be the most competitive they can possibly be. We do offer shorter packages if that fits into your schedule. And one thing you can always count on is you will never find any hidden fees in our pricing. We believe in being upfront with the customer from the very beginning.
Can I smoke on your vehicles?
No, we hope you will understand that our goal is to keep our vehicles in pristine condition.
How do I decide which party bus to choose?
