Vehicle Comparison: Shall I book the Party Bus or the Mini-Coach?

You have a large group of people that you want to transport for an event, but which vehicle do you book?  Depending upon your group size, there will be a limited number of vehicle options that can safely transport everyone, the most common being the party bus or the mini coach.  “Aren’t those the same?” you ask.  To which we would answer a resounding, “No!”  Depending upon your party and your event, these vehicles offer something very different.  Read on to figure out which option would be the best choice for your group, and get ready to be chauffeured!

Party Bus

Max Passenger Load: It depends upon the size of the bus, but typically these can hold anywhere between 15-23 passengers (*Sidenote: this is the biggest reason why it is imperative for you to put the amount of passengers that will be on the vehicle with you, as once the vehicle hits its passenger threshold, it’s a safety hazard to transport over that amount).

Distinguishing Characteristics: Flashy/Snazzy decorating, bench-style seating: similar to a limo, but with standing room; large “bus-like” outer appearance, complete with extremely dark tinted windows, typically has a nice sound system for your vibing pleasure; these are often described as “mobile nightclubs”.

Typical Usage: If the name of the vehicle itself didn’t already give it away, this vehicle is for large “parties”, who either want to keep the party on the bus, or go to various social destinations, in the name of comradery.  Think: bachelor/bachelorette parties; birthday parties; weddings, etc.

Not to be used for: corporate meetings (unless your business is partying, it’s best to stay away from this type of vehicle at your next corporate function).

The Mini-Bus

Max Passenger Load: It depends upon the size of the bus, but typically these can also hold anywhere between 15-23 passengers (*Side note: this is the biggest reason why it is imperative for you to put the amount of passengers that will be on the vehicle with you, as once the vehicle hits its passenger threshold, it’s a safety hazard to transport over that amount).

Distinguishing Characteristics: Captain’s chair-type of seating (individual seats, all facing forward), minimalistic décor inside, often neutral in color; in some models there are TV’s or technology hook-ups/tools for corporate meetings; think “mobile boardroom” with comfortable seating

Typical Usage: Large corporate group travel; business meetings; company offsite

Not to be used for:  bachelor/bachelorette parties.  If you’re looking for a large vehicle with which to cut loose on-this ain’t it.  You’re much better off going with the Party Bus, which will cater to your needs a lot better.
