Charter Bus Rentals from Metropolitan Shuttle®

Metropolitan Shuttle® is a nationwide reservation service for bus rental and charter bus services that operates through a network of vendors that specialize in group travel throughout the major metropolitan areas in North America. We offer a variety of bus rentals that accommodate groups of all sizes.

Safe, cost-effective and reliable rental buses are our priority; since Metropolitan Shuttle®’s founding in 2001, we have worked with thousands of clients and have established relationships with hundreds of professional rental bus operators nationwide.

Why use a shuttle and charter bus reservation service?

Lots of reasons, actually. There’s no limit on the types of bus rentals Metropolitan Shuttle® can source and provide. Very seldom would you find a single bus rental operator that could accommodate a complex event with its own fleet alone; it could try to sell you what it has, rather than what you really need. Furthermore, navigating the vast SAFER Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCA) database to ensure that the charter buses you and your group will ride on are safe will be our problem, not yours. You can trust us to show up on time at the designated location anywhere in the US or Canada, but don’t take our word for it, see what others are saying!

Caveat emptor (“Let the buyer beware”) when choosing charter buses

An online bus charter directory can include rental bus companies that have unsatisfactory or conditional safety ratings. Some popular online bus charter directories are listing vehicles that are potentially unsafe. When you request a quote for rental buses from Metropolitan Shuttle®, we only search for vehicles that are safe based upon the U.S. Department of Transportation’s FMCA rating system.

What kind of bus rental services does your bus company offer?

We offer a wide variety of bus rental, charter bus, and coach bus services and bus options. We are the most trusted bus company in the US and Canada as we will always show up on time and never overbook your important date! Some of our bus rental and fleet options include:

How do bus rentals work through Metropolitan Shuttle®?

We know that your time is valuable.

You request a quote, and we comb through our network of bus rental operators to find exactly that for which you’re looking. Metropolitan Shuttle® acts as a bus charter reservation system that can source exactly what you need—no more, no less. If there’s a particular size or type of vehicle that you require, or if you’re searching for shuttle bus transportation in a specific city, we do that legwork for you. That way, you’re not wasting precious time doing research and finding exactly the right vehicle with the features necessary for your event. We pull up the FMCSA report on the charter buses for your event, ensuring your safety and have you listed as an additional insured on the relevant insurance policies. That’s it.

What about the cost of bus charters?

One of the major benefits to using our reservation rental bus service is that you’re getting exactly what you want, so you’re not paying for anything that you don’t need. You’ll know up front exactly what the charge will be for rental bus transportation for the duration of your event. Whether it’s a corporate event with multiple meetings, meals or trips to the airport; or a daily employee minibus rental requiring precise, to-the-minute timing for route pick-ups or vehicle tracking services, there’s no guesswork involved. You will make a single payment through Metropolitan Shuttle, and we’ll take care of all the details for your bus charters.


Convenience is key. If you’re planning a corporate event, a basketball team trip, an airport pick-up, or any other mission where there will be multiple points of transportation, we can save you the hassle of coordinating individual trips and working with multiple bus charters. Rather, you’ll tell us how many people you need to transport, and to where (along with all the extras you require, like on-board snacks or rest rooms, Wi-Fi or entertainment) and leave the rental buses’ logistics to us.

We pride ourselves on having an excellent track record when it comes to our charter bus providers’ being on time, comfortable and without complications. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the ride!

Metropolitan Shuttle is a proud member of the following organizations:

  • National Tour Association (NTA) of Charter Buses
  • Transportation Safety Exchange for Charter Buses
  • Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce for Charter Buses

But, don’t take our word for it. Our satisfied clients will tell you, themselves, why they are so happy with the bus charters that were provided by Metropolitan Shuttle®.

Here's what some of our customers had to say about our service: Here's what some of our customer had to say about our service:

“The bus trip was perfect. I received many comments from the attendees about how convenient the service was for our trip. I believe during our future Yankees excursions we will use your service and keep you in mind for others. Thanks!!”

Columbia University Business School

“When the Department tasked your company to come up with drivers, vans & buses to support the G20 summit on such short notice, you not only met that challenge, but were resourceful in getting us photos and bio data needed to meet the security requirements. (We have a total of 44 drivers) with only 8 DOS drivers as well as all the vehicles needed – this is indeed an accomplishment!”

G20 Summit

“I just wanted to send you a note thanking you for the great service you gave the St. David Show Choir during our recent visit to California. The buses were always nice and prompt and the bus drivers were very courteous, We hope to use your company on future visits. Thank you again.”

St. David Arizona Show Choir

“Thank you for all of your help during the past few weeks. We couldn’t have made it through L.A. Screenings … without you!”

Sony Pictures Television International

“Thank you for your kind assistance to the Office of Homeland Security. It was a pleasure working with you.”

U.S. Department of Homeland Security

“I am an attorney and the coordinator for a golf trip for our firm’s clients in Birmingham.  I was recently left in a bind with another transportation company at the last minute.  I called Metropolitan and reached Nevin.  He immediately took care of me and rectified the situation – he responded to everything quickly, got everything I needed arranged, and had a great personality while doing it.  I just wanted to drop a note since customer service can be such unrewarding work as I feel that people are quicker to point out the negatives rather than the positives in this business.  Nevin did a job well done.”

Hennessy & Roach, P.C.

“Thank you, thus far, for your shuttle services from Morehouse School of Medicine to Grady Memorial Hospital. We have received numerous of compliments of vehicles as well as time efficiency. I kindly request for shuttle driver, Isaac, to frequently transport us to our locations. He is a careful and professional driver with extensive knowledge of the downtown Atlanta area as well as familiar with our time schedule and route. Again, thank you for your services.”

Morehouse School of Medicine

“Everything went off without a hitch. Your limos and buses were perfect, and very accommodating given the flexibility we needed with the rain. By all means, I won’t hesitate to call you for anything we need or refer my friends for anything they may need in the future.”

Private event

“Things went superbly; words cannot describe how amazing things went. This was my first year to act as Social Chair and put large groups like this and then move them for a night of fun. But ya’ll helped so much with finding the extra buses I needed in such a small time, I didn’t think it could be done but ya’ll proved me wrong. Andy kept me updated and helped out more than was necessary and was right on top of everything. He helped me understand what would be needed and expected and I hope that everything on our side went well. The service was great; the bus drivers introduced themselves, gave me cell phone numbers, and were very friendly to everyone that rode. Then we were off and everything ran smoothly. I cannot stress how grateful I am and how amazing the buses were, everything went better than planned. Thank you so much for the service and you went above and beyond our standards, you have a great company and we will definitely use you in the future… maybe with a little more time to spare (haha). Thank you again and if there was anything that [you] were concerned about on our part, please let me know so I can make changes in the future.”

Oklahoma State University

“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and support in coordinating the bus transportation for our employee meetings… As I mentioned to you when I first contacted Metropolitan, the drivers were late the last two years but this year, thanks to you, your driver Eric was at the facility earlier than the designated time. Because of this, our employees arrived at our main plant in a timely manner and the meetings started very promptly.”

Palladon Iron Corporation

“I wanted to thank and compliment you, your company, and most of all, your driver. Your response to our request for a quote was fast and efficient. You showed both courteous and professional service. We had already had scheduled and paid for our trip with another bus service when they cancelled three days prior to our service date. You got us back “on track” within hours of that cancellations at a competitive price. Your driver was exceptional. He was dressed in a well pressed suit, courteous beyond belief, and a excellent and safe driver. You have won all our future business.”

Hinsdale Cub Scouts

“I really appreciate the fact that you understood my concern about the driver being on-time. I was really worried that 2008 would be a repeat of 2006 and 2007 but thanks to you, everything went smoothly. I can assure you that I’ll call Metropolitan again in 2009. Thank you again for your outstanding work on this request. I enjoy working with people who pay attention to details and who make it a point to provide good customer service. You scored very high on both counts! Have a great day.”

Trojan Battery

“It was awesome. Our driver was exceptional and our bus exceeded expectations. Thanks for all your assistance and we will use you again in the future.”

Hon. Consul of the Kingdom of Belgium in Illinois & Indiana

I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance with our event this past weekend. The drivers were prompt and courteous and I received more than 1 compliment about them from the graduates, especially Glenn, whom the riders found very amusing.

They were fantastic at communicating with me and making sure that we were all on the same page and I am looking forwarding to booking your company for my next event.

Red Lion-Concordia University

“We had a wonderful time this weekend and it couldn’t have happened without great transportation. I had no references and got your co. from a Google Search and we were very pleased. The driver was early, the bus was nice and clean and Danny our driver was very good and personable. Based on my experience I would use Metropolitan again and recommend to my friends.”

Spread the Word Ministries

“I didn’t want the week to end without getting I touch with you to let you know in writing how satisfied we were with everything from beginning to end… your professionalism, our changes and your willingness to accommodate them. The bus was beautiful.  Mr. Thomas, our driver was fantastic.  A total professional.  Everyone raved about how wonderful he was.  How well he managed the high volume of traffic in Manhattan on the day of our trip.  He got our group here from NY to PA happy, safe and in good time… We are planning our next event and are looking at the logistics involved of shuttling guests every hour on the hour for a 24-hour period from the NJ transit station to our next locale.  We are keeping Metropolitan Shuttle at the top of our list for all our future transportation needs.”

The Shuttah Group

The service provided was excellent. We did not have any complaints with Bus that was provided or the drivers. There was a very high level of professionalism being exemplified by the office team (Chanel) and the drivers. I would highly recommend Metropolitan Shuttle to other clients. The level of service deserves 5 stars. Thanks again!
