Questions to Ask When Hiring a Party Bus

Hiring a party bus is a good way to elevate the party or event that you are planning. But not all party bus companies are created equal. Before you book a service, you’ll want to ask a few questions.

How Many People Does the Bus Hold?

It doesn’t matter if you are planning a birthday party, corporate event, wedding, or wine tasting tour—your event will require transportation for a certain amount of people. The first step when hiring a party bus is to evaluate their selection of vehicles. Do they have a vehicle that will safely and comfortably accommodate everyone on your guest list?

Does the Bus Have the Amenities I Need?

The next box to check off is ensuring the party bus has everything you are looking for. Think about the event you are planning and make a list of must-have amenities.

You might need some of the following:

  • Bluetooth/phone connectivity
  • LED lighting
  • USB chargers
  • Stereo system
  • Television/DVD player
  • HDMI outlets
  • Coolers

If the bus is big enough to hold your group but it doesn’t have the state-of-the-art amenities necessary to create the kind of vibe you are going for, you should keep looking.

Is the Driver Trained?

Safety might not always be your first thought when hiring a party bus, but it should factor into your decision. While most party buses will come equipped with seatbelts, they might not always be used by your passengers. An experienced driver who knows how to navigate the roads safely will be key to keeping your party or event all about having fun and creating a lasting memory. Will your party bus driver be background checked and drug tested? For the safety of you and your guests, these are important questions to ask. Taking the time to evaluate your driver's qualifications before the event will give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on having fun. 

Does the Company Have Good Reviews?

Have you ever canceled an uber when you noticed the driver has abysmal reviews? That’s because we tend to trust others’ opinions—especially when it comes to letting a stranger drive us around. If someone takes the time to write a bad review, you can bet that they had a negative experience. Likewise, positive reviews mean that the impression left by the service was enough to make someone devote time and energy to writing a review. The court of public opinion is generally pretty reliable, and this is particularly true when it comes to transportation services. Take some time to read through the reviews of the party bus company you’re considering. Testimonials will give you a good idea of how clean, timely, and professional the service is.
