We used Elite Minibus during our annual Open House for the Fire District. Elite was early in arrival, professional and friendly. We had approximately 600 citizens use this service due to our limited parking spaces. We used the community center that was a few blocks away and Elite performed excellently. We had hundreds of compliments by providing the shuttle.

Joe saved the day when we needed a vehicle that could take four bike from the Woodstock train station to William's Bay for the Lake Geneva tri. He was on time and extremely accommodating to our situation. It was the least expensive option, and so much better than dealing with a car rental. Will definitely call again when we come back next summer!

About

Chicago Party Bus has been in business since December of 2009, and we have been happily serving the citizens of the Windy City ever since. We've worked hard to get the best buses and to equip them with the most exciting features for you and your friends! We know that when you're planning a big trip or a night of partying, you want all those fantastic amenities that no other company in the area can provide. We are all about your comfort and convenience, but don't take our word for it. We'd be happy to show you with our amazing transportation service, all it takes is a phone call to get a better idea of the service we provide. Our professional chauffeurs are the most well trained in the state, and what you'll notice is that other companies in the area simply hire drivers. We hire chauffeurs. That really makes a difference in the end result of service. These professional chauffeurs know the roads of our state like the back of their hand, so even if we didn't provide them with state of the art GPS systems (which we of course do!), they'd still know how to get you where you're going faster and safer than anyone else. This way, if you're looking to have a spontaneous night, our drivers can take you to all of the best hotspots in the area without an itinerary or schedule. But of course, if you happen to have a strict schedule, they'll be happy to adhere to that as well. You always get the best service from our amazing drivers!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is in a party bus?

A party bus can be a fun and safe way to transport a group of people to or from an event. A party bus can be anything from a retrofitted school bus complete with disco lights, to an upscale shuttle service, to a stretch Hummer with a full bar. What is inside a party bus depends on the company you hire and what you are looking for. Many party buses have bars in them, complete with glassware, ice bins and mini fridges. Often party buses have festive lighting like strobe lights, black lights, dimmable lighting and track lighting on the floor. A party bus usually has loudspeakers in the back for en route dancing and may even have a dancing pole in the center. Some states require seat belts in party buses and decree that all passengers must be seated when the vehicles are moving, so there must be a seat for each passenger. To make sure you know what you are paying for, request photos of the inside and outside of the exact vehicle you are hiring. Also make sure you have all fees and details of what is and is not covered in a written contract.

How much does it cost to rent a party bus?

Party bus prices vary based on the size of party bus you want, the time of day and day of the week you need, and the length of time that you want to rent the bus. The national average price to rent a party bus is $530-$700. Party bus prices can also be affected by where in the country you live. Bigger cities, like New York, have higher fees for insurance, licensing and tolls than a smaller town might, plus a higher cost to do business, so party bus prices will typically be higher than in smaller cities.

The size and luxury of the party bus you want will affect the price. For example, a 10-passenger vehicle could cost $100 per hour, a 14-passenger vehicle could cost $125 per hour, and a 20-passenger vehicle could cost $150 per hour. Party bus prices will also be dictated by the season or holidays. Rental on New Year’s Eve will be much more expensive than on a Tuesday afternoon in November. Most rental companies have a minimum number of hours you must rent, often starting around four hours. The longer you rent, the higher the price. The distance you travel can also affect cost. For example, a driving tour through wine country can cost more than a bar-hopping party through town — even for the same number of hours — due to the additional fuel required to drive the longer distance. Messy party guests can also increase your party bus price. Broken glass, major spills, or damage to the vehicle’s interior or exterior will all be billed to the customer. A company may have a base rate of $150 for excessive cleaning, plus additional charges for actual damage.

How much do you tip for a party bus?

When you rent a party bus, it’s industry standard to tip the driver 15 percent to 20 percent of the rental cost. Some rental companies include a gratuity for the driver as a line item on the bill, while others leave tipping to the discretion of the passengers. Often party bus drivers are employees of the rental company, and are not seeing most of the money you paid to hire the ride for the night. You should consider the tip as a standard part of your total party bus price. The job of the party bus driver is to keep you and the other passengers safe, ensure your comfort, and get you to your destinations on time (barring outside factors like weather or unpredicted traffic). Party bus drivers are usually the ones who stock and prep the bus with ice, drinks, and other requested items before picking you up. They are also usually tasked with cleaning the vehicle after you and your guests are done for the night. Ask your rental company whether a tip is included in the quoted price, and be sure to be prepared with cash or the ability to tip by credit card after the event. Of course, tipping is not required (unless it is a written part of a contract you agreed to), and if you had problems with the driver, you don’t have to tip. But if you had a nice time, consider tipping well. And if your guests were extra rowdy and messy, add a few extra dollars to your tip to acknowledge the driver’s extra work cleaning up after you.
