Ally Charter Bus offers private charter bus rentals in Philadelphia for all occasions. No matter what your private event is, a charter bus rental has plenty of added benefits.

No matter the occasion, we have the right bus rental for all your group transportation needs. Rent a Philadelphia wedding shuttle bus that will be there for you at every step of the process—from serving as a designated driver at the bachelor party, to taking your loved one safely home after the big event.

When it comes to corporate events like conferences and meetings, it’s critical that you and your employees are running according to schedule.

All your employees will be in one place, ensuring nobody gets lost or left behind, and they will enjoy comfortable reclining seats and complimentary WiFi on the way. Plus, with a charter bus rental, none of your employees need to arrive stressed from fighting Philadelphia traffic, and will have time for bonding and brainstorming sessions during the ride with their fellow coworkers. A trained and professional bus driver will have your itinerary handy and will make sure you and your group end up where you are supposed to be, when you are supposed to be there.
