Charter Bus Prices
The questions we get the most revolve around the cost of a large bus rental. Coach bus rental prices vary by state, but there are two basic pricing scales: local area and interstate charters. It’s less complicated than you might think!
For a local area coach rental, prices average $150 per hour, with a five-hour minimum. Please see the table below for regional pricing. Across state lines, motor coach rental prices can run around $3.50 to $4.00 per mile, including cost for the return trip (even if the bus is empty).
