Frequently Asked Questions about NYC Charter Bus Travel

Where can I take a bus in NYC?

You can take your charter bus just about anywhere in NYC, whether that’s to and from the World Trade Center, up north to the Bronx, or south to Staten Island. However, some areas may have some restrictions on where charter buses can drive and park.

Lower Manhattan is particularly difficult for buses to navigate, and some streets may not allow any oversized vehicles. Check with the NYC Department of Transportation’s charter bus guidelines before your trip, especially if you’re planning to visit Lower Manhattan, and always double-check with the venues on your itinerary to make sure you’ll have a convenient area to load and unload your charter bus.

Can I still book a full-size bus if I’m traveling in the city?

Yes! While a minibus rental may be a little easier to maneuver in busy areas, you can still take a full-size, 56-passenger charter bus to the Big Apple. Just be sure to check with your destinations before your trip so you’ll know exactly where you can be dropped off and picked up.

Can I drive my charter bus rental?

No—even if you or someone in your group have a CDL, we cannot permit passengers to drive their own bus rentals. However, every New York City charter bus includes the services of an experienced bus driver! These seasoned professionals have clean background checks and clean driving records. Your bus driver will handle all transportation logistics throughout your trip, including navigating traffic, parking your motorcoach, and assisting with luggage storage.

When should I take the Subway and when should I take a charter bus?

If you’re traveling in Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn (and you’re looking for part of the classic “New York City” tourist experience), the Subway will be very accessible from almost anywhere and is an easy way to hop around busy parts of the city. Subway access thins a bit in Queens and The Bronx, and the train doesn’t reach anywhere in Staten Island.

If you’re traveling with a large group or you need point-to-point transportation to specific destinations, rent a bus to make sure everyone stays together and doesn’t have to worry about where they need to board or exit the Subway. A charter bus can also help your group access specific destinations that might not be easily accessible from the Subway line.

How much do NYC charter bus rentals cost?

NYC charter bus rental prices depend on multiple factors. When you call us at 718-223-4319, we’ll take into account the time of year you’re traveling, how many people you’re traveling with, how many miles you’ll cover, and whether or not your group needs extra bus amenities. With these factors in mind, we’ll calculate a custom, up-front quote with no hidden fees.

Please keep in mind that your charter bus quote won’t account for expenses like road tolls, driver tip, driver hotel accommodations, or parking fees.

Benefits of a New York City Bus Rental

Depending on your reason for being in New York City, there are different charter bus rental options for your group. Ally Charter Bus has access to a vast network of charter buses and minibus rentals, from 18-passenger minibuses to 56-passenger charter buses. A smaller bus is great for private events, like small family vacations to see some of New York City’s top attractions. And the middle-of-the-road option, a 25-passenger minibus, would be perfect to shuttle wedding guests to a smaller, intimate New York City wedding.

If you aren’t sure which New York City bus rental is right for you, no worries. Give Ally Charter Bus a call at 718-233-4319 and our reservation specialists can help hook you up with the right bus for your group.

Secure a NYC Sports Charter Bus Rental

You’d be hard-pressed to find sports fans more passionate than those in New York City. The rivalry between the New York Yankees and the New York Mets is legendary, with the rivalry creating a fierce fandom for both baseball teams. A few of the other major professional sports teams in New York City include the New York Rangers for hockey, New York Knicks basketball team, and the New York Jets for football. 

If you’re planning on catching one of the major sports games in any of the New York City boroughs, a charter bus can save you time and headaches. Because the stadiums tend to get so packed due to the popularity of sports in the city, a charter bus rental will allow your group to be dropped off immediately in front of the stadium. Your charter bus driver can also take you to New Jersey to see Giants and Jets football and Red Bulls soccer.

Are you in New York City to play sports, instead of being a spectator? A New York charter bus rental is one of the best ways to transport your team and all their equipment to the big game. The spacious buses offer plenty of room for storing sports gear, and your team can take advantage of amenities like DVD players, flat-screen TVs, and plenty of legroom. 


Bus Rentals in New York for Major Events

New York City is considered a cultural capital of the world. Due to its popularity, many of the world’s major events take place in the city and its five boroughs. New York City is home to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the second-oldest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country, and the Times Square Ball, a New Year’s Eve celebration watched by an estimated audience of at least one billion people worldwide. 

If you are in New York City for one of these major events, Ally Charter Bus can help you reach your destination comfortably and efficiently. We also transport passengers to annual concerts, sports tournaments, or comic book conventions. No matter which event draws you to New York City or the surrounding area, we’ll help you get there with a private shuttle bus rental.

Take Students on a Field Trip to New York City

Planning a field trip in New York City for a class aged K-12? Or maybe a school field trip to Brooklyn? A charter bus rental is your best bet. Visit New York’s best historical sites without having to separate groups or risk any students getting lost. Your students will be comfortable and enjoy the ride with plush seats, free WiFi, and plenty of legroom. We can also arrange an ADA-compliant bus to ensure every student and their unique needs are supported. 

Another benefit to renting a charter bus is not having to worry about parking. Few of the big New York attractions offer parking, but with a charter bus rental, your driver can drop you and your group off and find parking in a paid lot elsewhere. Then, when it’s time to go home, they can come back and pick you and your class up.
