Chicago Bus Rentals for Any Occasion

Chicago charter bus and minibus rentals

If you're planning a group trip or event in Chicago, Total Charter Bus can get you where you’re going safely, quickly, and in style. Book with us to enjoy comfortable charter bus travel and premium amenities designed to make your journey as enjoyable as the destination. Whether you’re touring the highlights of Chicago, attending an event at McCormick Place, or catching a game at Wrigley Field, you can count on a reliable ride with Total Charter Bus.

Types of Charter Bus Rentals Available in Chicago

From family reunions and church events to emergency travel services, there is a charter bus to fit any need for group transportation in Chicago. The Total Charter Bus fleet includes full-size 56-passenger charter buses, and minibuses that range for 18-, 20-, and 25-passenger parties.

We recommend choosing a full-size bus for transporting large groups, groups with lots of luggage or personal belongings, or for long-distance travel such as a trip for two or more days. On the other hand, you may want to book an 18-passenger bus or 20-passenger bus for local transit services in Chicago such as shuttle service for a large convention or assisted living facility transportation. A 25-passenger bus would be a great option for transporting small groups around the city for private events, like a birthday party or corporate outing.

When deciding which charter bus is right for you, make sure to consider the amenities that you can enjoy with your bus rental. A minibus rental can come with amenities like reclining seats, air-conditioning, overhead storage, WiFi, a PA system, and power outlets. A full-size motorcoach can have all that a minibus has, as well as premium travel features such as TVs with a DVD player, an onboard restroom, and a spacious undercarriage luggage bay.

Calculate Your Chicago Bus Rental Prices

When you call Total Charter Bus at 312-766-2242 and speak with a reservation specialist about your trip details, you’ll receive a free and accurate price quote that will answer your questions about the cost of a bus rental in Chicago. Though, if you want to understand more about what goes into calculating your price quote and other aspects that influence the cost of your rental, we can help you there.

The total cost of your charter bus rental can depend on a variety of factors, most notably:

  • The type of charter bus you rent.
  • The mileage, hours in transit, or days in transit.
  • The season you are traveling in (i.e. summer is a busy season).
  • Any special travel requests. Some special requests aren't associated with a cost, however, such as an ADA-compliant bus, or a DoD-approved service provider for military transportation.

The above factors are influenced by your total headcount, desired destination and time you’ll spend there, and your full itinerary including pick-up and drop-off locations and times. Make sure you have this information handy when you call us!

Some other details of charter bus travel that may affect your total cost outside of your bus rental quote include:

  • Your driver’s tip
  • A hotel room for your driver for a multi-day trip
  • Road tolls

Don’t leave without a stroll through the outdoor garden, where you can learn about native Indiana flora and view a collection of lawn sculptures.
