What's the Best Way to Transport Large Groups in and Around NYC?

Without a doubt, the best way to transport large groups in and around New York City is a chartered bus. Only a charter bus provides a safe, dependable, and affordable transportation option for large groups. Charter buses not only arrive when and where you specify, but they also belong to you for the length of your charter, which ensures the safety of your entire group (great for large groups of children).

What’s more, a charter bus is the only form of NYC transportation that is unaffected by an increase to your group. One charter bus can accommodate most group sizes, and if one bus isn't enough, you can simply book more. Besides, have you ever tried to transport more than five people to a New York City Airport (JFK, Laguardia) on time? There is no better way to get to the airport with a large group or anywhere in NYC than on a chartered bus, and the best charter bus service in New York City is Buster.
