Florida Charter Bus Company has provided top-notch transportation services to numerous private groups attending large-scale festivals in Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and beyond. Keep your group together for the entire trio to some of the biggest events in the state. Take a look at some of the most popular spring festivals that are perfect for group travel.

Why Rent a Bus to a Florida Festival?

Popular music and arts festivals are notorious for bringing additional traffic stressors into already-packed Florida cities. This makes organizing transportation and parking difficult for event attendees, especially those traveling with large groups. Private charter bus transportation will ensure your group isn’t separated in hectic traffic or stuck waiting for oversized rideshares while the event is kicking off.

We work with bus operators and certified drivers in the state to offer each group of passengers efficient and comfortable transportation services. Festival-bound groups can choose from an extensive fleet of vehicles in our network that are best fit for your group’s travel needs. Our selection of compact yet comfortable minibuses are among the most popular charter buses with festival groups. These buses may be smaller than traditional 56-passenger motorcoaches, but they can still include optimal amenities like WiFi, TVs with DVD players, power outlets, reclining seats, and more. Every group member can choose to relax before a day out in the Florida heat or even pregame before a big music festival. No matter your plans before the event, a professional driver will be behind the wheel. Your group will have the freedom to enjoy the festival to the fullest without the hassle of driving or parking. Florida Charter Bus Company and your personal driver will take care of all your transportation.

We also understand that many people may travel long distances for some of these popular events. Our services extend throughout the state and we can even organize accommodations for groups coming from nearby locations. The last thing you’d want to worry about is having a friend or family member drive a long distance before or after attending a busy festival. We’ll take care of all the driving to ensure you arrive at your destination safely.
