Differences between chartering a motor coach & mini bus:

Motor Coaches are the most popular option and are ideal for local group charters, large group shuttles, and over-the-road tours. The Deluxe Motor Coaches we offer can come equipped with seating for up to 57 passengers, high back reclining seats (leather where available), restrooms, A/V system, PA systems, power outlets, footrests, Wi-Fi,  overhead and undercarriage luggage compartments and are the environmentally conscious choice to transport a large numbers of passengers.

A Minibus is the right choice to shuttle employees from parking lots, transportation centers, and corporate campuses. They are even great in a pinch for those who find themselves in need of transportation from sites temporarily under construction or closed due to weather, which can happen quite often in the windy city. Don’t forget that charter bus rentals are also great for bar crawls and bachelor/bachelorette parties!

Deluxe Motor Coaches are the most popular option and the ideal choice for your local group shuttle, charter, and over-the-road touring. Deluxe Motor Coaches are the environmentally smart choice and are the perfect charter bus for transporting your group locally or to and from every major city in the United States.
Executive Motor Coaches are the right choice for the group seeking a greater level of luxury and comfort. Executive Motor Coaches are ideal for corporate events, wedding parties, and more, and can offer a more intimate experience for your group. Executive motor coaches are unique and custom made, so options can vary, but you can expect a front and rear lounge, entertainment center, spacious bathrooms, a kitchenette, and more.
Entertainer Motor Coaches are not just for entertainers. Your group can now experience what it’s like to tour the country as the rock stars do with BusBank’s Entertainer Coach charters. Entertainer Coaches come equipped with bunks accommodating ten to twelve passengers so your group need not worry about having to sleep sitting upright while you tour across the country. Entertainer Coaches are loaded with all the amenities of home, including kitchen, shower, living room area and, of course, entertainment.
Mini Buses are the perfect choice for smaller group transportation. Airports, hotels, and small corporate events are the perfect setting for a minibus charter. Wedding and sporting events have never been more accessible to your group than on a minibus. Minibuses are equipped with high back reclining seats, P/A system, AM/FM radio, CD and Aux input (select markets) and TV/DVD (select markets), and are the ideal mode of transportation for anywhere within 150 miles.
Mid-Size Coach Bus offers you all the amenities of a Deluxe Motor Coach only with reduced seating. Mid-Size Coaches sit between 29 and 37 passengers and come equipped with High Back Reclining seats, TV/DVD, PA System, Climate control, and luggage storage.
School Bus charters provide a cost effective and local way to transport your group. We love luxury at BusBank, but we’ve still got you covered if your event doesn’t call for leather-wrapped seats and champagne coolers. School buses are the economic alternative to a deluxe motor coach or minibus charter. Local transportation service, school trips and field trips are the main purpose of the school bus. School buses do not come equipped with restrooms, air conditioning, or luggage storage. They do, however, seat up to 44 adults (or 65 children) and come equipped with heat, P/A system, radio, and nostalgic memories.
Party Buses are for partying, of course! Sometimes referred to as a limo bus - these vehicles come equipped with climate control, leather wrapped seats, entertainment system, AUX capabilities, ice and champagne coolers, fiber optic lighting, and restrooms (select markets), a party bus is the ideal way to party your way all the way to and from your event. Party buses are alcohol friendly and are great for any occasion, including birthdays, weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, pub crawls, and corporate outings.
Trolleys can turn a good tour into a great tour. Trolleys come specially equipped for your group’s special occasion! Our trolleys come with configurations such as AM/FM/CD Player (many have AUX cord outlets), open air seating for up to 36 passengers, and come variety of sizes and exciting setups.
