No, we cannot allow customers to drive their New York bus rentals, even if they have a CDL. Rest assured every charter bus or minibus reservation comes with the services of an experienced, professional bus driver who is dedicated to keeping passengers safe and on time.
How far in advance should I rent my charter bus?
Depending on where you’re going and the time of year you plan to travel, we recommend booking your bus rental around 6 months before your departure date to ensure the best rate. If you’re planning a trip around the peak holiday travel season or anywhere in NYC itself, you may consider booking at least 9 months in advance. Coordinating travel elsewhere in the state, or outside busy travel times? You can reserve your charter bus around 3 months before your trip.

It’s no wonder so many travel groups are drawn to New York City! There’s so much to see and experience in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island, narrowing down an itinerary can be the hardest part of planning your next group trip to the Big Apple.
That’s where we can help! The New York Charter Bus Company team has put together this list of 10 must-see attractions in the boroughs. Simply jot down all the stops you want to add to your itinerary, round up your group of passengers, and let us treat you to a comfortable charter bus in NYC.
One of the biggest tourist attractions and commercial hubs in the city, Times Square is a must-see destination for first-time NYC visitors. Stop by to snap photos of the vibrant billboards and step into the larger-than-life storefronts, or explore the surrounding Broadway District with your crew of theatre lovers. Since Time Square is near-constantly packed, your charter bus driver will drop your passengers off in more bus-friendly loading areas in Hell’s Kitchen and Midtown. Don’t worry—they’ll be back at your designated pick-up point with reclining seats and full climate control to help your rest up after you’ve toured the square.
An iconic part of the Manhattan cityscape, Central Park is one of the most famous parks in the world. Taking in all 843 acres of it can be a challenge, so we recommend prioritizing which stops your group may want to make throughout the green space. Landmarks like the Belvedere Castle, Central Park Zoo, the statues of Balto and Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and famous museums like The Met and The Guggenheim all make great pit-stops as you explore the greenery and (relatively) fresh air of this beloved park.
This 1.1-mile cable bridge is a historic part of the NYC skyline and a great photo op for first-time travel groups. While many say the best way to experience the Brooklyn Bridge is to walk along it—either from the Manhattan entrance in City Hall Park or the Brooklyn entrance in DUMBO—if your passengers have mobility concerns, you can always have an ADA-compliant bus rental shuttle everyone across the bridge instead.
Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, this park is a popular hangout spot for New York University students. Enjoy street musician performances, shop at the local boutiques around the perimeter, watch the chess masters duel it out, or simply sit in the grass and take in the marble Washington Square Arch at the edge of this famous green space.
Does your group love history and art? A visit to The Met is practically mandatory! It’s the biggest art museum in the United States and houses more than 2 million pieces from around the world and across thousands of years of human history—from Medieval armor and ancient Egyptian artifacts to a collection of paintings from the likes of Van Gogh, Monet, and Cézanne. Don’t worry about hauling your sketch pads and cameras across New York City when you’re done at The Met; you can leave these items on your charter bus rental and your bus driver will be happy to look after them for you.
One of the most famous high-rise buildings in the country, this 102-story art-deco skyscraper is an iconic piece of the NYC skyline. Today the Empire State Building stands as the seventh-tallest building in New York City and one of the best spots to get a bird’s eye view of Manhattan! Grab your group some tickets and ride the elevators up to the two observations on the 86th or 102nd floor. Your bus driver can drop everyone off at the Empire State Plaza and park nearby while you complete your tour.
Chinatown in Manhattan is one of the most densely popular Chinese neighborhoods in the US and is packed to the brim with authentic restaurants and kitschy souvenirs for tourists. Spend an afternoon walking around and taking in the atmosphere before picking up an “I Heart NYC” t-shirt on Canal Street and some delicious dim sum from historic eateries along Doyer Street.
Speaking of popular neighborhoods that draw in a lot of out-of-towners, Little Italy is the place to be for authentic Italian eats. While many Italian families have left the district over the years, you can still pick up baked goods, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy the major cultural festivals that are hosted here, such as the Feast of San Gennaro.
Planning to be in NYC around the holiday season? You’ll probably want to stop by Rockefeller Center for an hour of skating in the ice rink and a photo op in front of the giant Christmas tree. Even if you’re visiting Manhattan at another time during the year, you can always count on this major commercial center to have plenty of shopping opportunities and great views of the city from the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Keep in mind that street parking is limited near the center, so your driver will likely have to park somewhere else in the neighborhood while you explore this iconic space.
One of the most recognizable landmarks in the city, this 305-foot neoclassical sculpture has stood guard over the bay since it was gifted from France in 1886. Today, groups can take several tour options through the National Park Service, including packages that explore the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island together. And while you can’t take a charter bus directly to the Statue of Liberty, we’re always here to ease your ride to and from the ferry landings in New York and New Jersey!
No matter where your group travels take you, you can count on New York Charter Bus Company to provide a stress-free bus rental in New York City. Let us handle the traffic and parking logistics, so you can focus on the comforts of your private minibus or charter bus while traveling through each of the city’s boroughs:
When out-of-towners talk about the Big Apple, Manhattan is usually what they’re referring to. And for good reason! Manhattan is the heart of New York City and is home to many of the top cultural tourist attractions—from the MoMA to the Met, as well as bustling neighborhoods like West Village, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and Chelsea.
This up-and-coming borough has become popular for creatives and “cool kids” in recent years. Rent a Brooklyn charter bus to check out hotspots like the DUMBO art scene, LGBTQ+ nightlife spots in Bushwick, the diverse cuisines of Williamsburg Smorgasburg, and the beautiful green spaces of Prospect Park.
Flying into JFK Airport? Land in a Queens charter bus! As one of the most ethnically diverse boroughs in NYC, Queens is a great place to experience an authentic slice of the city. This mostly residential neighborhood is home to the historic Flushing Meadows Corona Park, art spaces like the MoMA PS1 and Museum of the Moving Image, and tons of unique restaurants to please foodies of all tastes!
Located just north of Manhattan, the Bronx is the birthplace of East Coast hip-hop and rap. After your group has taken a tour of major hotspots in the music scene, be sure to squeeze in time for the borough’s other popular attractions like the Bronx Zoo, New York Botanical Garden, and (of course) Yankee Stadium.
Rent a Staten Island charter bus and explore this overlooked NYC borough, which is home to a few hidden gems your group won’t want to miss. Check out local interactive history spaces like Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, spend a day at the zoo, or hop aboard the State Island Ferry for a great view of the Statue of Liberty. Keep in mind that the NYC public transit system has limited lines on this island, so arranging a charter bus rental is the best way to ensure your crowd has reliable transportation!
