When it comes to getting around Tampa, you have a few options:
Rideshares and taxis may be the first mode of transit that comes to mind. They’re really flexible when it comes to where you want to go and when—but not so much when it comes to pricing or how many people can fit in each vehicle.
Public transportation can be a budget- and environmentally-friendly way to travel in Tampa, especially if you’re downtown. However, it’s not ideal for out-of-towners who do not know the area well or groups with children, as it is all too easy to miss your stop and lose your way.
That’s why reserving a private motorcoach is the best option for transporting a lot of people, traveling on a tight schedule, and ensuring your passengers have specific onboard accommodations.
When you book through National Charter Bus, you have access to hundreds of motorcoach models throughout the country, a network of certified professional drivers to take the wheel, and a 24/7 customer service team to help throughout the booking process. That means we can whip up a reliable rental plan that works for you, no matter what your group needs!
We can make any group trip work, but below are 5 Tampa travel services we book most often.
From conventions and conferences to holiday parties and team-building on the beach, a private shuttle is a perfect way to keep your Tampa business events moving. No more waiting around curbside for a string of rideshares or enough taxis to accommodate your entire department. Instead, let a certified professional tackle the Tampa streets so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
Planning a trade show or industry event? Set up a shuttle route between your attendees’ hotels and the Tampa Convention Center. Your minibus driver will plan to arrive at every stop at least 10 minutes early so no one misses a single masterclass or workshop.
What about keeping your employees and clients productive along the way? Ask your reservation rep about onboard amenities you think would set your passengers up for success. We’ll be sure to hook them up with WiFi so they can check their emails and tweak presentations, power outlets so their devices don’t die mid-meeting, and plush leather seats so they can comfortably network after a long day of hard work.
Your wedding day is going to be beautiful and memorable. We’re here to make sure it’s safe and efficient as well.
Book a wedding shuttle through National Charter Bus, and your guests won’t have to worry about parking, getting between the ceremony and reception spaces, or having that extra drink. A professional will be their DD for the entire night to ensure they’re all together and on time to every event on your special day!
Planning a last hurrah your soon-to-be newlyweds won’t soon forget? Let your rep arrange a bar-crawling shuttle so your wedding party can explore the Tampa nightlife! Don’t stress over hailing multiple taxis or navigating public transit when you’re a little tipsy—just hop on your private ride and let your driver handle the rest.
Work with your rep to reserve a fleet of all-black or all-white vehicles to suit your wedding’s theme. We can even throw in AUX ports so they can blast party jams, a DVD player and TVs so they can screen cheesy rom-coms, WiFi so they can share their favorite photos, and so much more—all you have to do is ask.
Whether you’re taking the field or cheering on your team, the last thing you should have to stress over is navigating traffic, circling the parking lot, or scrambling for a ride home. Never fear—National Charter Bus is here.
For fan groups, we offer reliable transportation services to any and every Tampa sporting event you can think of. Whether you root for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Orlando Magic, or any other team—local or otherwise—your driver will ensure everyone has a safe ride to and from the game. If you’re planning a tailgate, we can even find a ride with plenty of room to stash coolers and tents or one that allows alcohol aboard to keep the party rolling between stops! Let us know what your fan group needs when you call to book, and we’ll try our best to make it happen.
For sports teams, we provide simplified transportation so your team can focus on securing the win. From quick rides for the staff during training camps to away-game transportation for the entire season, we want your team to be as comfortable as possible. That’s why we’ll connect your organization with a ride that will securely store all your equipment en route, has enough legroom so your players can stretch out, and features TVs with DVD players so you can watch inspirational videos to get your head in the game!
Students, faculty, sorority and fraternity members, extracurricular club members—no matter who you’re traveling with on your academic trip in Tampa, we’re here to help. Campus tours, field trips, and outings to the Florida Aquarium and ZooTampa have never been easier!
National Charter Bus works with experienced and certified professionals on thoroughly-inspected vehicles, so you’ll never have to worry about your passengers’ safety when you roll with us. Buses range in size from 18-passenger to 56-passenger, and we can mix and match your fleet to suit any group. Choose from amenities such as WiFi and TVs with DVD players to keep young ones entertained, an on-board restroom to eliminate unnecessary stops, and reclining seats and extra legroom to make sure everyone travels in complete comfort.
Coordinating a grand beach vacation, family reunion, or other private trip in Tampa? Great choice! With miles upon miles of soft white coastline—not to mention countless sightseeing ops and attractions—the city has plenty of sand, surf, and entertainment to offer your group.
When you’re planning a large Tampa get-together, we suggest booking transportation early—at least 6 months in advance if your trip is during peak summer and spring travel seasons. Reserving early is the best way to secure the ride plan that works for your group’s itinerary and headcount. And trust us, your loved ones will appreciate kicking up their feet and watching a movie in a climate-controlled coach after a long day exploring Busch Gardens, Historic Ybor, or any other place on your itinerary!
