In short—any type of bus! GOGO Charters works with a large network of transportation providers across the country with fleets that include spacious charter bus rentals and compact minibus rentals. Since D.C. is such a busy destination, our transportation partners in D.C. offer a diverse selection of buses for various group trips.
Usually, we’d recommend minibus rentals for employee shuttle services or small-scale tours, while full-size charter bus rentals are best for large tour groups and field trips. Our handy guide to charter bus rentals will help you pick which vehicle is best for your trip. Regardless of the type of bus you rent, most vehicles can include modern amenities to make your D.C. ride comfortable. You can request WiFi to stream music on the road, power outlets to charge up your phones before, reclining seats to catch up on rest, and onboard restrooms (on larger models of charter bus) for long-distance trips to D.C.
If you’ve driven in Washington D.C. during rush hour, you know that it’s stressful, time-consuming, and some of the worst traffic in the country. Being stuck in traffic isn’t conducive to starting a productive workday or relaxing after a long shift. GOGO Charters can organize efficient and comfortable employee shuttle bus rentals in D.C. for businesses in all industries. Each shuttle bus rental can be equipped with features like WiFi, TVs, power outlets, reclining seats, and onboard restrooms.

Not only is Washington D.C. a wonderful place to plan a group tour, but it’s also a popular location for events like family reunions. The capital city is filled with group hotels, event venues, and of course plenty of attractions to see for families with members of all ages. If you’re planning a big event with family or friends, a charter bus rental can simplify your group’s transportation throughout your trip. Forget about parking dozens of vehicles at hotels and D.C. attractions. Instead, spend time with your loved ones on board a spacious charter bus rental as a professional driver handles the transportation.
Washington D.C. has three airports in the metro area that collectively see millions of people every year. When you’re traveling with a large group, hopping on a pre-scheduled airport shuttle or renting several vehicles can be a logistical nightmare. You’re not guaranteed to have enough space for each group member or luggage on a shuttle and rental cars can get expensive if you need multiple vehicles. A private airport shuttle will keep your entire group traveling right according to schedule with all the space you need to travel comfortably.
GOGO Charters also has experience in transporting international tour groups who may feel comfortable driving in D.C. Create an itinerary with all the stops you’d like to see on your trip and leave every step of the transportation up to us and your driver. Your group won’t have to rush to see the sites when traveling on a pre-scheduled tour. Relax and take your time with a private D.C. charter bus rental!
Is your Baltimore school planning a field trip to museums in D.C.? Or is your academically gifted class of high school seniors getting hyped to tour D.C.’s best universities? Wherever your academic travels take you in Washington D.C., passengers of all ages can relax knowing they’ll be in safe hands with GOGO Charters. When you rent a bus with us, you’ll be working with a transportation team dedicated to keeping you safe throughout your D.C. academic trip. Your charter bus will be thoroughly inspected before hitting the road and you can rest assured your driver has been vetted and is well experienced in operating a charter bus around D.C. roads.
A charter bus or minibus rental service can also be a perfect option for current university students in need of a safe ride for sports games, Greek life formals, volunteer events, or even just a night out on the town. Whether you’re students at Georgetown, George Washington, Howard, or American University—GOGO Charters can help you travel safely anywhere in D.C.
As the United State capital city, D.C. sees numerous business conferences, political conventions, and major meetings. On top of already hectic traffic, these major business events bring even heavier traffic to D.C., which can make transportation logistics difficult for event attendees. Rent a fleet of charter buses to serve as shuttles for your large business event at Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Cambria Hotel Washington, D.C. Convention Center, or any other major business venue in the area.
One of our rental experts can help business event organizers build a fleet, craft routes, and execute efficient transportation options to keep everything running as planned. Event attendees won’t have to worry about waiting on hotel shuttles or circling lots trying to find parking. A conference shuttle can pick them right up at their business hotel and they can relax as they ride to the event. Organizers can also request a bus fleet with amenities like WiFi and power outlets so event attendees can work on presentations, jot up notes, or catch up on work en route to the convention.
Being cramped in a sedan or minivan isn’t fun for sports teams or fans alike. If you’re a big group of fans traveling for a Washington football game or Washington Capitals hockey game, having a spacious charter bus is the key to enjoying your tailgate and game! A charter bus offers plenty of storage space for tents, coolers, chairs, and everyone in your group. You can ride together rather than splitting into several cars and being flagged into separate parking lots upon arrival at the game.
Amateur D.C.-based teams traveling to away games in nearby cities may also need a spacious vehicle for long hauls. The luggage bays of full-sized charter buses can fit your game day equipment and the comfortable cabin will allow your athletes to relax before a big game. Unwind in a climate-controlled charter bus with reclining seats after a long day out on the field.

D.C. has around 131 distinct neighborhoods that are filled with national history and culture. If you want to see how some D.C. locals live outside of the tourist centers, consider exploring these neighborhoods:
With its eclectic mix of local restaurants, shops, and bars—Dupont Circle is one of Washington D.C.’s most popular residential neighborhoods. Dupont Circle is also home to multiple embassies and diplomatic organizations located in historic buildings. The most famous part of this historic district is the traffic circle at Connecticut Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue. A picturesque park surrounded by benches and the historic Dupont Circle Fountain is located at the center of the traffic circle.
Adams Morgan is one of D.C.’s most vibrant neighborhoods, boasting colorful historic row houses along 18th Street. Many of the businesses lining bustling 18th Street are independently owned establishments like vintage clothing stores, used book shops, coffee shops, art galleries, and a variety of nightlife spots. Hop between beloved nightlife spots like Songbyrd and Dan’s Cafe or load up on new vintage outfits at Meeps or Commonwealth.
Bloomingdale is located just a few blocks from Howard University and about 2 miles from the U.S. Capitol. This quaint neighborhood is filled with Victorian-style row houses, small music venues, tucked-away dive bars, beautiful parks, and hip eateries. Stroll among greenery and historic homes at Crispus Attucks Park, stop for a mini-concert at Showtime Lounge, or grab a bite and beer at Boundary Stone.
Foggy Bottom borders the National Mall and White House to the West. This neighborhood is home to George Washington University, cultural hubs like the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and infamous locations like the Watergate complex. Grab tickets to the National Symphony Orchestra or the Washington National Opera at the JFK Center, take a tour of the Watergate complex, and take in the gorgeous GWU main campus.
Home to famed H Street NE, Near Northside and H Street Corridor is filled with artsy shops, performance venues, a diverse selection of hip eateries, and eclectic bars. Catch an original play at The Atlas, grab noodles at D’C’’s first ramen restaurant Toki Underground, or sample local brews at Wunder Garten.
The White House and U.S. Capitol lie just outside the National Mall and are easy stops to add to your itinerary. Book a guided tour for your group of the White House and Capitol, then leave any transportation there up to us. If you’re planning a historic and educational field trip with kids, a charter bus can keep your students entertained if you get stuck in traffic on the way to the Capitol or White House. Put a kid-friendly film on your bus’s TVs or allow kids to pass the time on mobile devices or tablets with onboard WiFi.
The famous National Mall is home to over a dozen historic museums and memorials. As one of the most iconic locations in the Nation’s Capital, touring groups have to make it a priority to visit the National Mall. Even if you don’t see all of the museums and monuments (it’s a multi-day task) it’s highly recommended you stroll along the mall and make a few stops on the way.
Traveling in multiple cars can be a problem when you have to find parking around the mall. Your group may have to park in different areas and this can throw off your day. Instead, you’ll want to consolidate your tour group into one vehicle to make your trip as easy as possible. Rent a bus and easily get dropped off at the mall while your driver parks off-site. Once you’re ready to go, they’ll swing by to pick your group up after a long day of exploring the National Mall!
The National Cherry Blossom Festival is one of the biggest festivals of its kind in the country. Every spring, millions of visitors flock to the monuments and memorials surrounding the Tidal Basin to view over 3,000 Japanese cherry trees in full blossom. The trees were gifted to the United States in 1912 by Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City and have grown to become a symbol of friendship between the U.S. and Japan. The cherry blossoms are only in peak bloom for less than a week, which means the festival is likely to be exceptionally crowded during the best time to visit. Keep your group together during this busy festival with a charter bus rental from GOGO Charters!
New York City is around a 4.5-hour ride from Washington D.C. and is a wonderful weekend trip option for D.C. locals looking for a fun excursion. International travel groups may also want to plan a leg of their trip from D.C. to NYC. Rather than renting cars, catching a pre-scheduled bus, or hopping on a train—a private charter bus rental will help you travel comfortably and on your own time. You won’t have to rush to catch a train or be cramped for the drive in a small car. Enjoy your time seeing the Nation’s Capital and Big Apple back to back!
In the mood for an authentic Philly cheesesteak? Okay, you may not need to drive all the way to Philadelphia for one, but at a 3-hour drive from D.C.—why not pop over for a weekend trip? GOGO Charters can help groups travel from D.C. to Philadelphia to see Independence National Park, The Franklin Institute, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Renting a charter bus will give your group the flexibility you need to explore D.C., Philadelphia, or any other historic city in the region.
Niagara Falls is hailed as not only one of the most beautiful attractions in New York state, but also in the world! Traveling from D.C. to Niagara Falls will take about 7 hours. When you travel in a charter bus, you won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable for the long journey. Relax in reclining seats, watch your favorite show with WiFi to pass the time, and skip pit stops every five minutes with onboard restrooms.
