Party Bus Rental Columbus Ohio

Columbus, Ohio

Columbus is the capital of Ohio and home to Ohio State University, as well as 860,000 people. The city’s economy runs on research, banking, defense, aviation, and more: five Fortune 500 companies make their headquarters there, and Columbus has been called one of the best cities in the Midwest by magazines like BusinessWeek and Money.

If you’re in town for an event, there’s no better company to help you rent a charter bus in Columbus, Ohio than Metropolitan Shuttle. What makes Columbus special? Districts like Short North, where art galleries and restaurants abound and events like the monthly Gallery Hop bring an injection of culture to the city. The German Village lends an historic flavor to the city with cobblestone streets and diverse architecture. But there are plenty of modern amenities as well, from shopping at the Easton Town Center to sports at the Nationwide Arena or concerts at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion.

Here are just a few of the things you can see and do from the vantage point of a charter bus in Columbus.

Easton Town Center

The Easton Town Center is a shopping complex intended to be reminiscent of a mid-20th-century town. Its homey charm attracts 25 million visitors a year to its over 240 retail shops, including a Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, Apple Store, Trader Joe’s, American Eagle, Macy’s, as well as the 30-screen AMC Dine-in Movie Theatre. The Easton Town Center is divided into several areas. The south district is devoted to concerts and events, while the dining district includes everything from a Cheesecake Factory to Panera Bread.

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Home to over four hundred plant species, the Franklin Park Conservatory appears on the National Register of Historic Places. The ninety-acre facility recently became the first of its kind to feature a seasonal butterfly exhibition, showing off tropical butterflies in its Pacific Island Water Garden since 1994. The gardens also include classrooms, a library, a gift shop, and a cafe where visitors can relax and take in the natural splendor. The Franklin Park Conservatory is the perfect destination for a bus rental in Columbus.

Ohio Theatre

Book a Columbus charter bus for a day at the theater! The “Official State Theatre of the State of Ohio” and a national historic landmark, the Ohio Theatre of Columbus stands on the site of the old Columbus City Hall. It first opened as a Spanish Baroque movie palace in 1928, and ran films until its closing in 1969. Thanks to the efforts of the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA), the theater was restored through the 1970s and remains open to this day for theatrical performances, orchestra shows, and large musicals.

Ohio Stadium

Are you ready for some football? Gather your friends onto a party bus rental in Columbus, Ohio and head for the stadium. Known as “the Horseshoe,” the Ohio Stadium is home to the Ohio Buckeyes football team, but also plays host to the OSU University Marching Band, as well as a past venue for such bands as Metallica, Pink Floyd, and the Rolling Stones. Built in 1922, the stadium had an initial capacity of 66,000 people, which has since grown to over 104,000 — making it the third largest football stadium in the U.S. In 2014, the stadium installed permanent lights, making regular night games possible for the first time.

Center for Science and Industry (COSI)

The Center for Science and Industry opened in 1964 as a science museum with over 300 interactive exhibits. COSI is noted for having one of the most extensive outreach programs in the U.S., including a COSI on Wheels program and distance learning and video conferencing programs. Its many exhibits include an ocean exhibit with an “underwater cave,” a space exhibit including a replica of John Glenn’s Friendship 7 capsule, and many hands-on experiments for students to explore science and industry.

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

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!
