Charter Bus & Party Bus rental in San Jose

Called the “heart of Silicon Valley” and the largest city in Northern California, San Jose is home to over a million people. Lying squarely in the most affluent county in California, San Jose is also an economic and cultural powerhouse: the city is home to many of the most well-known companies in the world: PayPal, Acer, Adobe, and eBay, to name only a few.

But San Jose is more than just big companies and high tech. Visitors will find plenty of culture and entertainment to excite them: the Dr. Martin King, Jr. Library, the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, the San Jose Improv, Japantown San Jose, Raging Waters, the San Jose Flea Market, and much more.

Whether you’re in San Jose for a corporate event, personal vacation, or a large family gathering, Metropolitan Shuttle has the expertise and resources to meet your transportation needs. As one of the most reliable charter bus companies in San Jose, we offer shuttle vans, coach buses, school buses, big party vans, and options in between. No matter what your reason for traveling to or chartering a bus in San Jose, Metropolitan Shuttle can help you.

Party Bus Rental San Jose

San Jose is split into several neighborhoods:

  • Downtown, the central business district and home to many of the museums and theaters
  • West San Jose, comprising suburbs and high-tech companies like Apple and Campbell
  • North San Jose, known for the annual Berryessa Art & Wine Festival
  • South San Jose, mostly middle-class and upper-class residences

Here are just a few of the things to see and do in San Jose. The easiest way to visit them all is to rent a bus from Metropolitan Shuttle.

National Theatre of Costa Rica

Opened in 1897, the historical Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica’s first performance was a showing of Goethe’s Faust. Famous for its lavish interior and historic significance, the theatre is still a regular tourist attraction and holds regular shows by the National Symphonic Orchestra. The National Theatre is the perfect spot for a night’s minibus rental in San Jose and an evening on the town.

Pre-Columbian Gold Museum

Located underground, beneath the Plaza de la cultura, the three-level Pre-Columbian Gold Museum features a collection of over 1600 Pre-Columbian gold artifacts. Among the items is Costa Rica’s very first coin, the Media Escudo. Among the many other artifacts in the collection is a life-sized gold warrior figure, along with a replica of a pre-Columbian grave containing over eighty gold objects. The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum is in the same building as the National Coin Museum, which boasts a collection of coins and banknotes dating back to 1236.

La Sabana Metropolitan Park

In downtown San Jose you’ll find the Parque La Sabana, the country’s largest urban park. Nearly a square kilometer of green space, the park is an important landmark in itself, and is surrounded by the most notable institutions of San Jose, such as the Costa Rican Art Museum, the 40,000 seat Estadio Nacional (national stadium), and more. The park features an artificial lake, sports fields, and skating tracks where visitors can relax and recreate between sightseeing excursions.

Winchester Mystery House

This mansion was once the residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of William Winchester, the treasurer of the Winchester Arms Company. The Winchester Mystery House is so-named because of the rumors it is haunted by the ghosts of those killed with Winchester rifles. Up until her death, Sarah Winchester remained preoccupied with warding off evil spirits, which inspired the architecture of the home itself. This is reflected in the many instances of the number 13 in the house (13 candles in the chandeliers, 13 holes in the sink drain covers, and so on). The house has appeared in television, comics, novels, and other popular culture phenomena.

Peralta Adobe

Built in 1797, the Peralta Adobe is the oldest building in San Jose, and has been turned into a museum reflecting the lifestyle of Spanish and Mexican California. Still furnished as it would have appeared two centuries ago, the Peralta Adobe is a registered historic site and California Historical Landmark.

The Tech Museum of Innovation

For a more modern look at Silicon Valley, book a school bus rental in San Jose and head to to “the Tech,” located in downtown San Jose. The three-story museum features interactive exhibits dealing with energy, exploration, and genetics. Visitors can design and build robots, see a film in the IMAX Dome Theater, and take in a wide array of galleries and movies.

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!
