Fun Day Trips To Chicago

Chicago is an amazing, world-class destination for Midwestern visitors. Whether you’re a first-time tourist or seasoned city explorer, the history, sights and culture of Chicago have something for everyone. Maybe you’re planning a field trip to the Chicago Science Museum for a high school class or attending a concert or expo at the United Center? A private charter bus rental can make your trip seamless, simple and stress-free.

If you’re headed to the Windy City from a Midwestern metropolis like Detroit, Indianapolis, or St. Louis, you’ll enjoy a laid-back, leisurely ride on a private charter bus. A day trip will be more fun with everyone together, riding in style and comfort. Group transportation will also save each person the hassle of driving, paying for gas, and navigating city traffic.

We can find you a 56-passenger charter bus for large groups or a compact and comfortable 18-passenger or 25-passenger minibus for a smaller group. Charter buses include free WiFi, reclining seats, panoramic windows, and plenty of legroom for a comfortable ride of any distance. With a private motorcoach or minibus, you can keep your group happy and comfortable during your Chicago visit.

Planning Your Chicago Wedding

From finding the perfect venue to booking your favorite caterer to everything in between, planning a wedding is stressful enough without needing to worry about your wedding guests’ transportation too. Consider renting a shuttle bus or minibus to tote your wedding guests from the hotel to the ceremony, from the ceremony to the reception, and back again.

But the fun of wedding preparation doesn’t start or stop with the ceremony, does it? Bridal showers and bachelorette/bachelor parties can benefit from private, chauffeured group transportation. From world-class dance clubs to bars along The Loop, you can plan the ultimate bachelor party in Chicago. Let Total Charters hook you up with a minibus to get from place to place without needing to worry about parking or designating a driver.

Business Travel Made Simple

Whether you’re planning an off-site team-building exercise or attending an industry conference at McCormick Place, Total Charter Bus can help you find the perfect corporate group transportation. We can set you up with a bus tailored to your needs, whether you need a minibus to shuttle guests between a hotel, conference center and corporate dinner or a full-sized coach for long-distance travel from out of town.

On your bus, passengers can enjoy multiple amenities for relaxing and enjoying the ride or buckling down and getting work done on the road. Free WiFi and power outlets allow employees to plug in and log on to review presentations or make last-minute changes to important projects. When it’s time for a breather, they can relax in reclining seats with plenty of legroom.

If you’re interested in shuttle service for a trade show or corporate event, you’re in luck. Work with us to arrange a pre-determined schedule for a day or more. We can hook you up with sleek, professional and reliable travel catered specifically to the needs of your event, so you can impress every guest upon arrival—and departure.

Easy Transportation for School Events and Field Trips

If you’re traveling to Chicago for a field trip or classroom excursion, you’ll need reliable group transportation. Rent a charter bus for your school trip to popular Chicago destinations like Lincoln Park Zoo, the Chicago Children’s Museum, or Adler Planetarium. A private motorcoach will be a much more comfortable ride than a standard yellow school bus, especially coming from nearby cities like Milwaukee, Madison, or Kalamazoo.

Kids and adults alike will be grateful for free, on-board WiFi as well as televisions and DVD players to help pass the time on a long journey. Even a shorter, inner-city ride will benefit from these amenities to keep school children patient and entertained between destinations.

When it comes to big events like a high school dance or pep rally, renting a motorcoach is a smart way to make sure students arrive safely and on time. A school-sponsored ride to a homecoming dance, senior prom, or championship football game encourages students to enjoy a chauffeured ride rather than drive themselves and others. Sweeten the deal by decorating the buses with lights and streamers, providing snacks and soft drinks, and allowing students to connect their phone to on-board auxiliary audio hook-ups so they can play music or do karaoke.

Traveling to Chicago’s Best Private Event Venues

Whether you’re planning a corporate gala, wedding reception, high school prom or family reunion, Chicago has no shortage of beautiful venues. Rent a motorcoach or minibus for easy, seamless travel throughout the city for your family, friends, co-workers or students. They’ll be grateful for the opportunity to sit back and relax rather than battle traffic, pay for a rideshare, fill up on gas, or look for parking. Everyone will arrive safely and on time to your event with private group transportation.

Total Charter Bus can help you find a charter bus to the city’s favorite venues. Colorful and creative Catalyst Ranch is perfect for a fun and upbeat vibe. Meeting rooms and co-working spaces are stocked with crafts, board games and toys to inspire outside-the-box thinking and productivity. For more formal and regal events, you’ll be looking for Moonlight Studios. Their industrial chic spaces and galleries can be customized for corporate galas, award shows, and product launches as well as wedding ceremonies and receptions. To round out your event planning, hire a private motorcoach for a round-trip ride to the event venue of your choice.
