Party Bus Rental Raleigh NC

Raleigh, NC

Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and a part of the famous Research Triangle - a home of many high-tech companies and universities and research centers in the area.


Originally named for explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina. Known as the “City of Oaks,” Raleigh is home to over 450,000 people, with over two million in the greater metropolitan area.

One of Raleigh’s claims to fame is being part of the Research Triangle, along with Durham and Chapel Hill. The name comes from Research Triangle Park, where many high-tech companies make their home, along with the many universities and research centers in the area, including Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Raleigh is a city of rich culture and history, with a long tradition of performing arts and a focus on art, natural science, and history at its universities. There are a wealth of museums, theaters, and historic sites to see in Raleigh. With so much to see and do, you’ll want to book a charter bus to get around Raleigh, NC — and Metropolitan Shuttle can help. Whether you need a minibus rental or a Raleigh NC party bus rental, we have the expertise to help you plan, organize and schedule your trip.

North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences

The Museum of Natural Sciences is the oldest and largest museum of its kind in the Southeast. It attracts over one million visitors annually, making it the most popular museum in the state. Exhibits at the museum include “Natural Treasures of North Carolina” (featuring dioramas of wildlife and nature), a 3-D theater, gem and mineral displays, a “Discovery Room” for hands-on interaction. The third floor of the museum features exhibits on prehistoric life, while the fourth floor is home to the Living Conservatory — a dry tropical forest exhibit featuring live plants and animals. Pack your kids or students onto a charter bus in Raleigh and spend the day at the museum!

Pullen Park

For a relaxing picnic on the grass, head to Pullen Park, a 66-acre public park in downtown Raleigh. The park not only features a pond and accompanying Pullen Aquatic Center, but there are also several small rides (including a carousel) and venues for life performing arts. If you’re the hiking sort, you’re in luck — Pullen Park is a part of the East Coast Greenway, a full 3,000 miles of trail that stretches from Florida up to Maine. The Aquatic Center offers an Olympic swimming pool, outdoor patio, and annual diving competitions.

Marbles Kids Museum

The slogan of the Marbles Kids Museum is to “spark imagination, discovery and learning through play.” It features interactive, hands-on experiments and exhibits with an eye toward encouraging creative thinking and education. Its daily activities aim toward motivating kids to be active, innovate, communicate, and embrace “green” ideals. There is also an IMAX theater playing daily documentaries.

Frankie’s Fun Park

Frankie’s Fun Park is a favorite destination for families and corporate events. Visitors can enjoy a round of mini golf, blast each other with laser tag, race go-karts, and bumper boats, or enjoy one of the many dark rides and coasters on site. There are also batting cages and arcade games. If you get hungry after all that fun, the cafe offers nachos, sandwiches, burgers, wings and dogs. Frankie’s also offers catering packages, from ten to two thousand people or anywhere in between. Metropolitan Shuttle can help book your next fun corporate trip if you need a charter bus rental in Raleigh.

North Carolina State Fair

If you’re planning to be in Raleigh in October, you shouldn’t miss the North Carolina State Fair, which happens every year from October 12-22. The fair features a career tent, a flower and garden show, the “State Fair Ark” (featuring over sixty breeds of farm animals), as well as concerts and fireworks shows. Past performers at the North Carolina State Fair have included Bruce Springsteen, Clay Aiken, Blake Shelton, Little Richard, Ray Charles, and many others. And, of course, there are roller coasters, rides, and games.

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

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!
