Here are just a few of the companies that have trusted us with their group transportation needs.
Traveling with a group can be hectic. Running through Tampa International Airport to catch a hotel shuttle with a dozen people sounds undesirable to say the least. Waiting around for multiple rideshares after a few drinks during Gasparilla Season is a drag. Keeping your younger travelers quietly entertained between here and there can be exhausting and tedious.
That’s why GOGO Charters is here—to make group travel in Tampa comfortable, easy, and efficient. No more rushing to catch public transportation or cramming into a rideshare. You’ll be relaxed with a professional driver handling the roads, no matter your point of departure or destination in the city. With GOGO Charters, your travel options are limitless.
So what exactly can a GOGO Charters bus rental do for you? Well, it depends on what you need and who’s coming with!
If you’re rolling with a smaller crowd, traveling a short distance, or traversing crowded city streets, a minibus will be your best bet. It can hold between 18 and 35 passengers (depending on the model) and can include a range of amenities like WiFi to keep everyone connected and power outlets to keep everyone charged and ready for the day ahead.
And then there’s the full-sized charter bus. It’s a favorite among large groups, long-distance travelers, and multi-day vacationers. Potential amenities include plush reclining seats for mid-trip naps, TV screens and DVD players for en route movie marathons, onboard restrooms to cut down on pit stops, and much more!
Got a specific request? Whether you need an ADA-accessible vehicle or a long-term or ongoing bus rental, our reservation specialists will be more than happy to hash something out that works for you.
If you’re planning a school trip in Tampa, you should be focused on helping your students learn and grow—not stressing about how everyone is going to get around. That's where GOGO Charters comes in. Our network only consists of certified professionals and thoroughly maintained vehicles, so you can rest assured your driver and motorcoach are up to snuff. Take a field trip with your animal lovers to Big Cat Rescue, or plan a Busch Gardens grad bash your seniors won’t soon forget. We’ll get them there on time and comfortably—just be sure to request amenities like WiFi and power outlets for your tech-savvy teens or onboard restrooms for the little ones when you call to ensure availability!
It’s one thing to read the brochures, scroll through the websites, and skim the social media tags—but there’s nothing like seeing your future alma mater in person. That’s why GOGO Charters is here to help your college campus tours go as smoothly as possible.
Easily transport your prospective students to local institutions like the University of South Florida, or even campuses farther from home like Florida State up in Tallahassee or the University of Florida over in Gainesville. No matter the distance, we’ll pair your class or after-school organization with the right bus to fit your needs!

Whether you’re rallying for a Buccaneers win or hitting the road to catch an Orlando Magic game, your group of fans will appreciate amenities like reclining seats, free WiFi, and TV screens that let them nap, check the stats, or just pass the time between stops.
When it comes to securing your sports team’s victory, one reliable ride plan can go a long way—literally and figuratively.

The Tampa Bay area is home to a dozen beautiful beaches, making it an ideal destination for private group vacations or large-scale events like family reunions. Fair warning, though—during busy travel seasons like summer or spring break, the area around beaches can get crowded, making navigation difficult for out-of-town guests who are unfamiliar with the area.
Not to worry: a GOGO Charters bus rental is just what you need! Load up the storage bins and luggage bays with your beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers, and we’ll connect you with a ride plan that will keep everyone together and comfortable! You can even request TVs and DVD players and pop in your favorite beachy movie on the way to these Tampa beaches:
Clearwater is the most popular beach in the area—and for good reason. Stretch out on the soft white sand, wade into the crystal-clear, warm waters, or take a stroll around the beachfront promenade filled with local seafood and cafes.
This state park is one of the few undeveloped islands on the Floridan east coast. Check out the pristine, natural beaches, kayak through the gentle waters, or host a picnic at this serene preserve.
Located on a barrier island dotted with resorts, museums, and outdoor adventures, this beach has plenty to offer beyond the sun and surf. Take a tour of the Pass-A-Grille Historic District, rent out paddleboards and jet skis for a day out on the water, or go dolphin-spotting on one of the piers.
A popular spot for weddings, this island park boasts all the white sand and clear ocean of Clearwater—but with fewer crowds. Throw out a line on the fishing pier, host a picnic on the sand, or venture out to the remote and tiny One-Tree Island for even more peace and quiet.
The Tampa Convention Center may be considered small to the likes of locations in Chicago or Atlanta, but that’s part of Tampa’s business charm. Although Tampa is a bustling major city, it still possesses a laid-back atmosphere. Travel for an upcoming conference, convention, or tradeshow with GOGO Charters! Your business group will stay together in a modern minibus during your entire trip in Tampa. Head over to the convention center or local hotels for important business ventures, and then shuttle to the beach to enjoy a last hurrah before heading home. You won’t have to worry about wasting time trying to find parking. A charter bus rental means you can easily be dropped off and picked up at designated locations. With a professional driver behind the wheel, you can also handle any last-minute work with WiFi and power outlets while on the Tampa roads.
If you’re in it for the long haul, you can rest easy knowing your long-term travel service is squared away by booking with GOGO Charters. We’ve serviced all sorts of ongoing travel contracts—from commuter shuttles to cross-campus transit, parking lot circuits for small religious congregations to major league away game transportation—so we can surely arrange the perfect set-up for you. Just call 1-844-897-5201 with the details—a rough headcount, a timeframe, and whatever amenities you may need—and our long-term reservation team can help you build out a contract.
Ready to get started? Once you’ve got a headcount, itinerary, and list of desired amenities, call our reservation team at (813) 452-6111.

Visiting Tampa from out of town? To make the most of your visit, we recommend getting out and exploring the neighborhoods that best match your group’s interests. Luckily, this city has it all—from museums to nightlife, roller coasters to window shopping.
We’ve put together a list of our favorite Tampa neighborhoods to help you narrow down your itinerary:
Come explore the many sides of Hyde Park—one of Tampa’s multi-faceted districts. Take in the historic architecture by day, and by night enjoy a cocktail in the thriving club scene this neighborhood has to offer. This neighborhood is also a destination for tourists and local shoppers alike, thanks to the vintage boutiques and upscale clothing stores here.
Some might say this neighborhood’s a mixed bag, but we say variety is the spice of life. Channel District is a great stop for tourists because it offers a wide range of entertainment options. Pay a visit to the sting rays and sharks at the Florida Aquarium, explore the warship-turned-museum American Victory Ship, or catch a hockey match at Amalie Arena—stomping grounds to the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team.
They say you can learn a lot about a city based on the vibe of its downtown. Tampa is no exception! Downtown Tampa is a museum and culture haven. Take in the classics at the Tampa Museum of Art, let your youngsters play with the interactive exhibits at Glazer Children’s Museum, or watch a musical or opera performance at The Straz. When you’ve had your fill of museums, wind down along the scenic Tampa Riverwalk.
This historic district was once considered the Cigar Capital of the World. Nowadays the neighborhood’s Spanish and Cuban roots still shine through, but it draws a younger crowd with boutiques, vintage stores, and a huge nightlife scene. And while you’re here, be sure to grab a bite to eat at Columbia Restaurant—Florida’s oldest restaurant.
Most notably, this district is home to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island—a perfect destination for thrill-seekers and animal-lovers young and old. If you’re not up for roller coasters, stroll through the calm and shady Takomah Trail Park paths or take a free tour and knock back some brews at Yuengling Brewery down the street.
