Group Trips to the STAPLES Center

Located on the southwest end of Downtown Los Angeles, the STAPLES Center (now, as of December 2021, known as Arena) was first opened in 1999 and has been the venue for a number of high-profile events, including the 2000-2017 Grammy Awards, the 2000 Democratic National Convention, and the 2009 memorial service for the late Michael Jackson. It is also the home of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Los Angeles Sparks, and the Los Angeles Kings, making it one of the most prominent sports arenas in Los Angeles County. Whether you’re visiting to attend a live concert or to step on the same floor as your favorite Lakers player, allow National Charter Bus to help you find the perfect transportation solution for your group with little hassle and zero headaches. Our reservation team is ready to simplify your group trip to this famous sports and entertainment center.

Simplify Travel to One of LA’s Most Iconic Stadiums

Los Angeles is known for its hectic traffic and underdeveloped public transportation system, so if you’re traveling with a group to the STAPLES Center, you won’t want to rely on rideshare services or public transportation to shuttle your group to the game or event. Traveling to the center can be especially grueling during high season or big concerts. Rent a bus with National Charter Bus to keep your group comfortable before and after your trip to the center. With us, you’ll gain access to upgraded amenities such as climate-controlled interiors, reclining seats, ample storage space, on-board restrooms, and panoramic windows, allowing you to enjoy the Southern California vista.

National Charter Bus Los Angeles prides itself in its customer satisfaction rate, efficient booking process, and no-hassle pricing. Our team takes care of every facet of your trip from the moment you step out of your hotel to the moment you’re dropped off at the STAPLES Center. We only partner with certified operators who meet stringent safety standards, and we only match customers with local, professional drivers who are trained to accommodate your group’s needs from beginning to end.

If you’re planning to fly in at LAX, our team will happily arrange both pickup and dropoff from the airport and shuttle you to your hotel or vacation rental. For small groups flying into the airport, we recommend the 18-passenger or 20-passenger minibus, which will facilitate curbside pickup at the designated terminal. For larger groups, we recommend a 56-passenger motorcoach. Curbside pickup is available in all terminals at LAX except for Terminal 1. Coordinate with your driver to ensure a smooth pickup and to avoid the bustling terminal crowds.

The STAPLES Center: A Guide for Groups

Excited for your trip to the STAPLES Center? Our team has compiled a list of must-know tips for groups traveling to the center. We will take care of the parking and travel logistics, so all you have to worry about is enjoying the event and heeding the following advice.

  1. Arrive at least an hour early. Though your driver will coordinate the drop-off so that your group has to walk a little as possible, every member of your party will have to pass a lengthy screening to ensure the safety of the area. The screening includes a metal detector, a visual inspection by a guard, and a bag inspection.
  2. Don’t bring bags wider than 14 inches and thicker than 6 inches. The Center won’t permit you to enter if your bag is bigger than these dimensions. For those bringing bigger bags, we recommend leaving them on the charter bus. Your bus and driver are exclusively assigned to you for the entire trip, so your belongings will be safe and sound on your seat.
  3. Bring a phone camera only. Professional cameras are not allowed in the premises during events. Make sure every member of your group adheres to this rule, as deviations may cause further delays.
  4. Don’t plan to leave the venue and come back. All events are subject to a strict No Re-Entry policy. Keep your group together by purchasing seats next to each other and make sure no one tries to leave. Otherwise, they will not be able to enter again. If such a thing occurs, don’t fret--your driver will always be on standby, so your group mate can simply wait in the privacy of your bus.
  5. Leave room in your budget for concession stands, as no food is allowed. The STAPLES Center has multiple concession stands to alleviate your hunger during a concert or a game. Because going in a group may be hectic, we recommend sending a single member of your party at a time.

With a charter coach or shuttle bus rental from National Charter Bus, your group will be able to stay together before, during, and after your visit to the STAPLES Center. Traveling to the center can be hectic during a game or a concert, but National Charter Bus is here to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for your group.
