Mini and Shuttle Bus Rental

  • luxury mini buses

Uptown Bus is a professional transportation service that makes traveling more convenient, affordable and customized. While we have vehicles ranging from luxurious limos, charter buses and party buses, we realize you don’t always need extravagant means of transportation to get from point A to point B.

We offer our clients shuttle bus rentals when you need a comfortable and relaxing ride, but with more simple features. You can rent a mini bus with onboard bathrooms to limit the number of pit-stops, and each has a public address (PA) system to help facilitate instructions. Similar to all of the vehicles in our fleet, our smaller forms of transportation provide plush seating to keep you comfy.

Mini Bus Services

Because excessive charter buses are not always necessary for small groups of people, our mini bus services seat between 16 and 33 passengers. Our buses are customizable based on your group’s interests and demands. Although we provide smaller rentals, we don’t omit special accommodations

Our mini bus services are available for a variety of event types:

1. Wedding Bus Service

Your big day is finally here, and you’ve stressed over each and every detail to create perfect memories. You deserve nothing but royal treatment on your wedding day, and that’s where Uptown Bus plays into your fairytale. Instead of worrying about transportation for you, your loved ones and your friends, rent a mini bus to ensure everyone arrives and departs at appropriate times.

A mini bus rental is a great way to chauffeur your guests while keeping everyone calm and collected — until the after party, of course, when you can let loose. Our goal is to provide you the utmost comfort, so you can feel relaxed and pampered throughout the day, without worrying about the transportation.

We can pick up the bride and groom separately and shuttle other guests to and from the reception and venue. Uptown Bus also offers post-wedding tours of the capital.

We encourage you to sit back and enjoy your day without worries and distractions. Spoil yourself and make heads turn with our newer vehicle models that include luxury amenities and plush seating. While amenities vary depending on the type of mini bus you rent, some accommodations include bathrooms, TVs and luggage space.

2. Wine Tours

You have a lovely day planned at a vineyard. You and your friends will tour the grounds, experience winemaking and of course, taste test various red, white and rosé wines — but who is to be the designated driver?

Too many times, wine tours are ruined for that one person who has to watch everyone have a great day while he or she is unable to participate. It not only ruins the fun for the driver, but also for the other people in the party as well.

Uptown Bus offers you mini-shuttles to transport you and your friends for a great day at the vineyard. No one has to fret about being the designated driver and miss out on all the wine-tasting festivities. Because Virginia is one of the most popular locations for wine tours on the East Coast, our Virginia shuttle bus rentals make for a perfect wine bus tour outing.

In fact, the Virginia Wine Industry produces $1.37 billion annually to contribute to the state’s economy, and about 2.25 million people toured vineyards in 2015.

We provide you with a professional chauffeur to pick you up, transport you to the vineyard and bring you, your friends and your family home safe. What are you responsible for on the trip? Choosing where to visit and enjoying a care-free day. Your entire group can relish in hours of wine tasting without singling a person out to drive the rest of the party home.

While it’s up to you where you want to visit, several of the best wineries in the Virginia area are:

  • Little Washington
  • Breaux
  • Pearmund Cellars
  • Gadino Cellars
  • Fabbioli

Uptown Bus recommends booking a tour with the vineyard of your liking before arriving. Most require a reservation for groups of more than 10 people, so it’s wise to be ahead of the game.

At Uptown Bus, our professionals will drive you around, so no one misses out on the fun. They are trained to assist you with questions and concerns about your ride as we guarantee your safety and comfort. We own each vehicle in our fleet, and we have regular maintenance schedules for each mini bus. Not only do we ensure the mechanical components of our VA mini bus rentals, but also their aesthetic features.
