St. Paul Charter Buses

Sometimes known as the “last city of the East,” St. Paul is the capital of Minnesota and home to 285,000 people. A friendly, walkable city of city squares and parks, St. Paul offers the best of both worlds: big-city attractions with a small town atmosphere. St. Paul has much to offer visitors, from rich historic districts to museums, parks and a zoo / conservatory. While St. Paul is accessible via walking or biking, visitors may want to have a motor vehicle for traveling around the city, especially during the winter months. Metropolitan Shuttle can offer easy, convenient shuttle service throughout St. Paul.

This is a very nice airport. It’s not too crowded and it has golf-car-like transportation to your desired gate. It really helped when I went with my grandma. It also has a variety of restaurants and is very classy. Could do some work on the bathroom, but everything is still very good!

St. Paul Winter Carnival
429 Landmark Center 75 West 5th Street

St. Paul Winter Carnival

In 1885, a New York reporter wrote that Saint Paul was, "another Siberia, unfit for human habitation" in winter. Offended by this attack on their city, the Saint Paul Chamber of Commerce decided to prove not only that Saint Paul was habitable but that its citizens were very much alive during winter, their most dominant season. Thus was born the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. The first carnivals were held in 1886, '87, '88 and 1896. They were revived in 1916 and 1917. Beginning again in 1937, they continued through 1942, resuming on a permanent basis in 1946

There’s no better place to be in the Twin Cities in January than outdoors in St Paul. The St Paul Winter Carnival offers two weeks of pageantry, royalty, parties, and wholesome family fun.  The event includes two parades: one during the day, one at night. There is fireworks, ice sculptures, an ice castle, concerts and plenty of other reasons to enjoy everything that Minnesota winter has to offer

The luminary is by far the most magical experience!  Although a skier, I actually prefer walking it since it's difficult to navigate around people and the events with your skis on.  Snowshoe, walking, or skiing... it's a great few hours celebrating the winter with others!

For being a free zoo with local competition, this place is really impressive.  The large gorgeous Victorian conservatory was incredibly beautiful.  There were several baby primates, which was a real treat.  I recommend going early in the day, as parking fills up FAST.  I went here in mid-June on a road trip with my best friend and we both really enjoyed visiting the zoo.

My experience at Metro has been outstanding. The school has multiple locations, very small family type feel and also serves a wide and diverse variety of students and educational specialties. Best professors I have ever had, especially all of those within the realms of anthropology and language and literature. Professors also serve as advisors which really helps. Dr. Durant, Dr. Hill and Dr. Whitson are three of the most inspiring professors I have had the pleasure of learning from. Huge new science lab being built this year. The school does a great job of constantly trying to improve and implement suggested changes from faculty and students. For one of the colleges with lower tuition rates- this is an outstanding place to go. Thanks Metro!

This center is truly amazing! I attended an Ice Skating venue recently, and after the show I got all the skater’s autographs in a souvenir program booklet. Unfortunately, I left it at the center!!! I was so incredibly disappointed! In dismay I called to report it missing. You can imagine my surprise to get a call from the Center saying that someone had found it! Three days later it was mailed to my front door in excellent condition!!! Thank you Xcel Energy Center! I will definitely be coming back again in the future!

It is a great place to bring younger kids. We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old and they have a great time. I’d say it’s a great place for kids under 6 years old to visit. For kids around 6 years old and older, the Science Museum may be more appropriate for them. We are members of both.

Don’t miss the Tuesday night live concerts and dancing in the summer months.  They had a great swing orchestra, space for old and young to try out their dance moves, one of the best views in the city.  1,200 people showed up tonight with lawn chairs and picnic suppers and it wasn’t even crowded–it’s a big space.  Also, free admission Tuesday nights to the History Center exhibits.

My wife and I recently went to the Minnesota Centennial Showboat to see Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with her mother and sister. The play was light entertainment and very entertaining. The U of M students who put on the play are very talented. I actually liked the musical Olio’s between the scenes as much or more than the play. Some were very funny. The setting on Harriet Island gives a great view of downtown St. Paul. Come down early to walk around the park before the show and go out on deck between the acts to enjoy the view. This is a good place to go with family or friends.

“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!”

“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.”

“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 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!
