That’s why at GOGO Charters, we personalize all of our charter bus rental quotes to each unique group trip in San Diego. When you call 619-312-4991, a GOGO Charter rental expert will take down all the details of your San Diego group trip and generate a personalized quote.

Many companies and organizations in large cities have developed employee shuttle services for both day-to-day and special event transportation. Companies in San Diego looking to improve employees’ hectic commutes may want to consider a private shuttle service. Rather than being stuck in traffic on I-15 and arriving to work exhausted, employees can relax on a private shuttle with reclining seats and WiFi.
Does your San Diego business need a recurring shuttle to Los Angeles or smaller cities in southern California? The GOGO Charters rental team can set up a long-term employee shuttle for recurring training or meetings out of town.
At GOGO Charters, we strive to make exploring San Diego easy for groups of all types, from locals to people coming in from Phoenix or Las Vegas.

You can build a customized San Diego itinerary and travel on your own schedule to the USS Midway Museum and Balboa Park (where some of the best summer fun in San Diego is hosted) on a charter bus equipped with free WiFi, reclining seats, and TVs. If you want to spend time bonding, there’s plenty of overhead storage space where you can store board games, cards, and snacks to enjoy during the drive.
If you’re planning a tour of beautiful Balboa Park, famous local beaches like Mission, or historic locations like the USS Midway Museum—renting a charter bus in San Diego is one of the best ways to see the city! Organizing a private tour can be difficult if you have a large group, especially when it comes to setting up transportation. Many tour companies offer group services in San Diego, but you aren’t guaranteed to see everything on your itinerary or spend as much time at each location. Rather than sticking to a company’s schedule, organize a private tour with a personal charter bus rental. Your GOGO Charters driver will be working with your schedule, not the other way around.
Are you locals planning a big family reunion in town? Or maybe you’re planning a friend’s vacation to Phoenix or Las Vegas? GOGO Charters can help your entire group of friends or family travel in a comfortable charter bus rental. Blast the climate controls on a hot southern California day, put a movie on your bus’s TVs, and relax as your drive shuttles you to your vacation destination.
Although San Diego International Airport isn’t as busy as its counterparts in Los Angeles or San Francisco, traveling to or from SFO can still be a hassle with a large group. Organizing transportation to and from the airport can be stressful if you opt for a pre-scheduled shuttle or rent multiple cars. To make airport travel easier for your large group, consider organizing a private airport transfer with GOGO Charters. Booking a charter bus rental to and from SFO will allow your group to travel together and according to your own schedule. Forget about calling multiple rideshares, rushing to park your cars, or struggling to fit all of your luggage on a shuttle with other passengers.
San Diego has numerous world-class museums and learning centers that are perfect for field trip groups of all ages. School buses are always a good transportation option, but they aren't always comfortable, especially in the San Diego heat. Local schools, youth groups, and scout troops looking to upgrade their field trip transportation should consider a charter bus rental. Rent a charter bus with reclining seats and powerful climate controls to keep everyone comfortable traveling to the San Diego Zoo or Birch Aquarium. If you’re traveling with young children, book a charter bus rental with TVs and DVD players to watch a fun movie before a field trip. Do you have older kids onboard? Reserve a charter bus rental with WiFi so they can stream music, shows, or play games on their mobile devices.
If you're planning a functional field trip for high school seniors or prospective college students, you can rent a charter bus and organize a group tour of San Diego's colleges. Customize your itinerary to meet the needs of your college hopefules and include campus tours of prestigious schools like the University of California San Diego, San Diego State University, and California State University San Marcos.
Traveling for business usually comes with a little bit of stress. Groups traveling for meetings have to make sure they’re prepared and ready for presentations, while conference attendees need to travel right on time without missing a beat. Reserving a private shuttle service for a big business event can help alleviate stress on both attendees and organizers.
At GOGO Charters, we have thorough experience with providing timely and efficient business transportation for events of all sizes and occasions. Whether you need an entire fleet of shuttles to the San Diego Convention Center for large conventions or a sleek executive minibus shuttle for meetings. We’ll work with you to find the perfect charter bus or craft the exact fleet you need for a San Diego business event.
