Charter Bus Prices in the Northeast

Since most major cities in the Northeast lie only a few hours from each other, it’s easy to travel between them via charter bus. But if you’re considering a bus trip from Baltimore to Stamford or NYC, you’re probably looking for an estimate of how much it’ll cost.

Calculating Your Charter Bus Price

While we offer sample itineraries below to give you a rough estimate on charter bus pricing, we can't provide an exact estimate until you call our team. Pricing depends on different factors, such as seasonality, trip duration, and more (see below). Please also keep in mind that there is a five-hour minimum to secure hourly bus rentals, and you may be subejct to extra charges for mile overages on daily rentals. 

When our reservation specialists draw up a quote for a trip, they have to account for how far the bus has to go, how long you need it, what time of year you’re traveling, which city you’re picked up and dropped off in, and the sort of amenities you want. Trips also come with costs that won’t be part of your initial quote, like tolls, parking permits, a room for your driver if you’re taking an overnight trip, and tips.

All of that means that it’s hard to provide an estimate of how much an individual trip will cost until you call for a quote. But we also want to give you a rough idea of prices if you need one, so we’ve provided a few charts and sample trips to help you get an idea of how much you might pay. Just keep in mind that these are estimates, and when you’re ready for a personalized quote, you can call us at 1-866-625-7682.
