Party Bus Rental Vs. A Limo

A party bus is essential whenever planning an event that requires transportation for a group of people. Whether it's that long-awaited 21st birthday, or the big New Year’s plans, a party bus rental can transform the night from ordinary to extraordinary. When planning any event the first thing that comes to mind is where the occasion should be held. Many great ideas are tossed around, but in the end a deciding factor is always, how are we all going to get there? This problem arises all the time when planning a birthday or other special party. In my opinion, the answer is simple; group transportation is always the best. There are multiple aspects to consider when deciding exactly what type of transportation to choose. Everyone can get separate cabs but that wouldn’t be “group” transportation and would be unorganized. This really leaves you with two options; a limo or a party bus.
Deciding between the two is easy if you ask a few questions. Mainly what the group size will be, but other aspects to address include travel length, budget, and event type are important as well. A limo is obviously much more acceptable at events like weddings, airport trips, and smaller formal events. A party bus is usually recognized with birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and events like New Years. So after determining the group size and event you may still be stuck between a limo or a party bus. Let’s look at some advantages/disadvantages of both:

Limo: A limo is usually a great option for smaller groups that are not planning on going very far. They get the job done and keep everyone together in one place. Some cons are their size and functionality. For medium to large groups they can be cramped and not really allow the party to begin or continue during transportation.

Party Bus: A party bus is great for medium to large groups that want to keep the party going while they are transported. Party busses are usually large enough to accommodate most groups and allow enough room to move around and get comfortable. They are great for longer trips for groups that want to bring the party on the road. Some cons with a party bus rental is that they can be a little more expensive than a traditional limo. That being said, they are usually accommodating more people so the price can even out depending on how the cost is being shared.

With all of that being said, it is really up to the event organizer to make a decision on transportation. I am a huge believer in group transportation for the convenience and fun factor provided. So check out some party bus rentals and see if you can add something extra to your next celebration!
