Party Bus Rental Charlotte NC

Downtown of Charlotte, NC

The largest city in the state of North Carolina, Charlotte is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. The city is home to over 800,000 people, with over two million people in the surrounding metropolitan area. Charlotte is also a major banking center, where Wells Fargo and Bank of America make headquarters, as well as several other Fortune 500 companies. The airport, Charlotte Douglas International, is a major international hub. In recent years, Charlotte has also become known as the “New Energy Capital because of the hundreds of companies in the energy sector that have come to the city.

Charlotte is also home to the motorsports industry, with three-quarters of America’s NASCAR race teams and employers making their home in or near to the city. Racing venues such as the NHRA dragstrip, the zMAX Dragway, and others draw both tourists and professional racers to the city each year. Charlotte’s tourism industry is booming as well — there’s a ton to see and do in Uptown Charlotte, and you can see it all with the help of Metropolitan Shuttle. We have great rates available from shuttle vans to Charlotte party bus rentals.

Uptown Charlotte is the city’s business center and historic district. The city was originally divided into four Wards for political reasons, but now each Ward has its own unique flavor:

  • The First Ward is mostly residences, recently redeveloped into a mixed-income area.
  • The Second Ward is Charlotte’s center of government, busy by day but generally dead at night.
  • The Third Ward is undergoing development and stands to be a major attraction to the city in coming years. The Bank of America Stadium is the most recognizable landmark here.
  • The Fourth Ward is the most historic district, with Queen Anne architecture and brick sidewalks. The center of the area, Fourth Ward Park, is a great place for walking.

Here are a few of the other things you can see and do, all accessible from a bus rental in Charlotte, NC.

Discovery Place

Discovery Place is an all-ages science and technology museum in Uptown Charlotte. Discovery Place uses interactive exhibits, experiments, and activities to educate and enthuse. The museum features an IMAX Dome Theatre in addition to its many exhibits. There’s also Discovery Place Nature, a nature museum near Freedom Park. For those wishing to take a bus rental out of Charlotte, there’s Discovery Place Kids in Huntsville, which centers on teaching young children about STEM.

The Mint Museum of Craft and Design

Art enthusiasts will find a wealth of art at the Mint Museum. The museum’s collections include American and European ceramics and decorative art, African and Asian art, historic maps, photography, and much more. The museum is made up of several buildings: the Mint Museum Randolph, which focuses on part eras, and the Mint Museum of Craft + Design, which places its focus on contemporary art. A third facility, the Mint Museum Uptown, opened in 2010, and features five floors of glass, ceramic, and wood exhibits. Make a day of it and take a minibus rental all around Charlotte NC to see every Mint building.

Marshall Park

If you’re looking to relax in the green between sightseeing expeditions, take a Charlotte bus rental to Freedom Park, a natural haven on the shore of a seven-acre lake. The park features walking trails, playgrounds, a tennis and volleyball court. There’s also a retired steam engine which lets visitors walk right into the cab. During the summer, the park frequently features live performances and film festivals, culminating with September’s Festival in the Park, which attracts over twenty thousand visitors yearly.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

The NASCAR Hall of Fame, located on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Charlotte, pays tribute to the exceptional drivers who have raced with NASCAR over the years. The Hall of Fame building includes a theater, an outdoor patio with a video screen, the “Glory Road” exhibit (showcasing eighteen racing cars), a 360-degree wall carrying the names of all those honored by the Hall of Fame, and more. Race car simulators let visitors try their hand at a NASCAR-style racing experience, and the “Heritage Speedway” exhibit shows off memorabilia and artifacts from stock car racing history. There’s also a cafe and a Buffalo Wild Wings, if you get hungry before you pack everyone back on the charter bus rental to Charlotte, NC.

The Billy Graham Library

Book a bus rental in Charlotte NC and take a “journey of faith” to the Billy Graham Library. This library and museum honors the memory of famous evangelist Billy Graham. The building is styled after a dairy barn and features a wide variety of presentations, photographs, music, and other artifacts from Graham’s life and ministry work. Exhibits feature a mechanical talking cow that speaks of Graham’s childhood, a replica of the desk at which Graham worked, and more.

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!
