Charter Bus Washington DC

The White House

The White House in Washington, DC is one of the most recognizable buildings in the world.


If you’re a resident of the United States, you owe it to yourself to visit our nation’s capital at least once in your life. Washington D.C.’s, downtown is one of the most iconic areas in the nation, containing the National Mall, the Smithsonian, Chinatown, the Convention Center, the White House, the Kennedy Center, George Washington University, Nationals Park, and more. Washington D.C. is home to over 600,000 people and is one of the most diverse and fast-moving populations in the world.

To tour the sights in Washington D.C. is to see a vital part of our nation’s history. The many museums of the Smithsonian alone are enough to fuel several trips to the city; the numerous war memorials and could keep you occupied for even more. There’s a ton to see and do in the nation’s capital, and Metropolitan Shuttle can make getting around easy, with the help of a minibus or charter bus rental.

Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

The spectacular National Air and Space Museum contains the largest collection of aircraft and spacecraft in the world. This museum contains such iconic vehicles as the Friendship 7, the Apollo 11 module, the Wright Brothers’ plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, and many more. Beyond the many preserved and intact aircraft on display, visitors can see numerous exhibits detailing the history of American aviation and spaceflight programs.

If that’s not enough, you can check out the Udvar-Hazy Center in nearby Chantilly, Virginia, where you can see an SR-71, the Concorde, the Space Shuttle Discovery, and other planes from all eras of aviation history. The “other” Air and Space Museum is only 25 miles away — the perfect distance for a charter bus ride.

Lincoln Memorial

The world-famous Lincoln Memorial is a symbol to the history of American race relations and a monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States. Located at the west end of the National Mall, the monument features the famous seated sculpture of Lincoln, along with inscriptions of his Gettysburg Address and Second Inaugural Address. The Lincoln Memorial is near to several other memorials, including the National World War II Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Arlington Cemetery is also nearby, making this area a perfect destination for a school bus rental and an educational day trip.

Library of Congress

The national library of the United States, the Library of Congress is more than just a national and cultural institution. It’s an unparalleled informational resource and the largest library in the world. Established in 1800, the Library has survived fire and war to become a hub of research and inquiry. The Library of Congress consists of three buildings: the Thomas Jefferson Building, the John Adams Building, and the Madison Building, all connected by underground passageways. There are over 23 million catalogued books, 14 million monographs, and hundreds of millions of special items on file in the library.

National Mall

Visited by over 24 million visitors every year, the National Mall is the hub of tourist activity in Washington D.C. From the National Mall, one can visit the Lincoln Memorial, the United States Capitol, the Washington Monument, and the various museums of the Smithsonian Institution. You can also take a moment by the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, as seen in “Forrest Gump” and many other films.. Rent a bus, visit downtown Washington D.C., and see the National Museum of American History, the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, the Arts and Industries Building, the Freer Gallery of Art, the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden, Union Square, and much more.

International Spy Museum

Washington D.C. has long been a hub of spy activity, both actual and fictional, and espionage is alive and well in the capital. A privately owned museum devoted to the history of espionage, the International Spy Museum is home to the largest collection of espionage artifacts in the world. One block south of the Gallery Place Metro station, this museum was founded by Milton Maltz, who acted as a codebreaker during the Korean War. The museum’s collection of 750 artifacts contains espionage-related photographs, video, and items leading all the way from the Roman Empire, through the World Wars, up to the present day. Visitors can take a shuttle bus to the museum and learn how spies are trained, how spy technology was developed, and learn real-life spy stories.

“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.”

“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 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.

“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!
