Considering the Boston Marathon is one of the best-known road racing events in the world, it should come as no surprise that traversing Boston can be a bit tricky as the big race approaches—especially if you’re in town with a large group. Boston’s public transportation system (known as the T) can get you to most places you need to go within the city’s major neighborhoods, and services like rideshares and taxicabs can be convenient for last-minute point-to-point travel. That being said, not everyone can or wants to navigate an unfamiliar public transit system, and waiting around at the curb for multiple Ubers or Lyfts can be tedious and expensive if you have a lot of people in tow.
That’s where National Charter Bus comes in! We offer personalized and private bus rental services for all sorts of groups within the Boston area, around New England, and across the country. Thanks to our nationwide network of minibus and charter bus rentals, we’ll be able to pair your Boston marathon group with the ideal ride for your number of passengers and travel itinerary. Just give us a call at 617-275-8102 and let us know your trip details, and we’ll be happy to connect you with a Boston Marathon bus rental that operates on a schedule and route you set for it!
Understandably, with so much going on in the narrow streets of Boston during this sporting event, driving and navigating any vehicle can be a bit tricky—let alone traversing the city in an oversized vehicle. Luckily, you and your fellow passengers won’t need to worry about the day-of logistics when you rent a bus to the Boston Marathon! Once you have your charter bus or minibus rental secured, contact the Boston Athletic Association to request access to the Club Bus Parking program. As long as your running club and spectators have the prior authorization, your professional bus driver will be able to drop everyone off at Hopkinton and wait there for you until after the race.
No matter the distance ahead of you or who you’re running with, having a reliable ride waiting for you at the finish line is the ideal way to wrap up your Boston Marathon experience. Safely store your belongings and water coolers in your charter bus’s undercarriage bay or overhead parcel racks. You’ll have crisp AC, a comfortable seat that reclines, and plenty of legroom to stretch out when you rent a bus for your running group. We can even ensure added perks are included in your Boston Marathon bus rental, such as free WiFi, an onboard restroom, and ADA compliance for participants in the push-rim wheelchair and handcycle divisions.
The Boston Marathon brings in over 500,000 spectators every year, making it New England’s most widely viewed sporting event. If you’re planning to cheer on your favorite athlete or running club, you and your fellow spectators are going to need a comfortable and reliable ride while you’re in Boston. Beyond shuttling your group to and from the best spectating spots, an 18-passenger minibus rental can ease your transportation plans to and from Boston Logan International, nearby hotels, and any sightseeing attractions you might want to visit while you’re in town! With all the comforts a private bus rental can provide—DVD players with TV screens, reclining seats, WiFi, and more!—everyone can enjoy their time on the road and arrive refreshed and ready to cheer for your favorite Marathon runners.
It’s never too early or late to plan your group’s transportation to and from the Boston Marathon. While we recommend booking your charter bus rental at least 6 months in advance to ensure availability, we can accommodate last-minute transportation requests as well.
