Visit the Live Music Capital of the World in the Comfort of a Charter Bus
When you need a cultural boost—great music, live theater, museums, art, cinema and world class cuisine—look deep into the heart of Texas. Austin has long been known as a mecca for lovers of live music, but the capital of Texas is a teeming center of creativity, entertainment and just plain fun. It’s a big city, though. You don’t want the hassle of trying to navigate its busy streets on your own. With a charter bus rental from US Coachways, you’ll enjoy all Austin has to offer while someone else takes care of the details.
At US Coachways, we have provided effective ground transportation solutions to groups and group leaders nationwide for more than three decades.

Why a Charter Bus Rental is the Best Way to Get to and from Austin
When you book a charter bus rental for your trip to Austin, you’ll travel like the pros do, enjoying:
- Unmatched reliability—Did you know that more than 800,000 air travelers arrive late somewhere every day? That doesn’t happen with a charter bus. Your driver has the resources to learn about potential traffic jams and find alternate routes. In addition, because we have access to a huge network of charter bus vendors, we can usually find a replacement bus without a problem.
- Flexibility—On a charter bus, you won’t have to pick from a limited number of prepackaged itineraries. Tell us where you want to go, when you want to leave, where you want to stop and when you want to come back. We’ll handle the details.
- Safety and security—With a charter bus, your driver will have extensive training and will have undergone a background check and security screening. In addition, there’s limited access to the bus, so you won’t have any uninvited guests.
- Comfort—All charter buses have large, high-back bucket seats, with ample leg room. There’s no middle seat, either. The aisles are wide and you can move about at your leisure.
- An absence of stress—A charter bus lets everyone relax. You won’t have to check the GPS or the clock. Your driver will get you there on time. You’ll travel on the same coach for the entire trip, and your bags will go with you, so there won’t be any worries about missed connections or lost luggage. There’s no TSA security checkpoint and your devices won’t interfere with navigational systems, so you can stay connected at all times.
- The use of the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes—You’ll have less risk of getting stuck in traffic
- More bang for your travel buck—Because you share many of the costs of travel with other passengers, charter bus travel is one of the most affordable ways to travel.
Your charter bus is more than just a way to get to Austin. It’s the perfect place for any kind of group event or meeting. Prep your employees, give advance instructions, conduct team meetings or have a family celebration. You can also get some downtime in the quiet of the bus over the course of a busy trip.
Another great reason to take a charter bus—it lets you go green. When you travel together with a group of people on the same coach, you reduce the number of cars on the roads, reducing emissions. Take a look at the way US Coachways helped protect the environment in 2018.
Austin—A True Cornucopia of Culture
You don’t have to come to Austin during the legendary SXSW (South by Southwest) conference and festivals to truly appreciate its cultural offerings (but you’ll have great fun if you do!). Austin is a college town, home to the Longhorns of the University of Texas, so there’s a spirit here that’s infectious and open to a wide range of cultural experiences:
- The music—Famous for Austin City Limits, the eclectic live music program first aired in 1976, Austin boasts more than 250 live music venues. Check out the Broken Spoke, a classic honky- tonk where such venerable stars as Dolly Parton and Willie and Waylon have headlined. The Continental Club, celebrating nearly 65 years in operation, offers rock, rockabilly, country, jazz and soul music. For blues, there’s Antone’s and if you need to move your feet, check out the wooden dance floor at Donn’s Depot. If you make it to SXSW, you’ll have more than 2,000 live performances from which to choose. But there are other cool music festivals, such as Chaos in Tejas, the Euphoria Festival and Carnaval Brasileiro.
- The food—The diversity that’s so much a part of everything in Austin is just as prominent in the culinary offerings. Where else would you find a popcorn tofu po boy (it’s at the Wheatsville Food Co-op)? It’s Texas, so there’s no shortage of BBQ, both pork and brisket. Some of the best eats in town are on wheels, served up at one of the city’s 1,200+ food trucks. Among the local favorite mobile eateries are Thai-Kun (the waterfall pork is to die for), Luke’s Inside Out (get the burger), and Via 313 (Detroit style pizza). Ethnic food options run the gamut, from Bangladeshi and Armenian to Croatian, Turkish, Pakistani and Moroccan.
- The museums—From popular culture to history to world class art, there’s a museum in Austin to pique your interest. Check out the Blanton Museum of Art or the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture, with its legendary tribute to the Armadillo Art Squad. History buffs will enjoy the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum, the Bullock Texas State History Museum or the Texas Memorial Museum.
- The live theater—From touring Broadway musicals to local productions, there’s almost always an opportunity to feel the power of a live theatrical performance in Austin. The Austin Playhouse features imaginative and often experimental shows, many by local playwrights. For cabaret-style humor, check out Esther’s Follies. The Broadway in Austin series stages touring New York City productions at the Bass Concert Hall.
A Charter Bus—Perfect for Any Trip to Austin
The convenience, flexibility, dependability, comfort, safety and affordability of a charter bus make it a great choice for any outing, including:
- Business and corporate travel—Seminars, workshops, conferences, conventions, business meetings, training sessions, team-building exercises, golf outings, picnics and company parties
- Family celebrations—Reunions, graduation parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, engagement parties and retirement galas
- Senior citizen and retiree excursions—Shopping trips, fall color tours, casino nights, museum and historical site visits, concerts and Broadway shows
- Church travel—Mission trips, choir tours, community volunteer projects and youth group outings
- School trips—Fan and athlete travel to games, graduation and prom after-parties, student community volunteer efforts, club and class trips, and cultural offerings
- Special events—Stadium and arena concerts, college and professional sports, motor races, touring theatrical productions, festivals and rallies

When you’re traveling on a charter bus rental, it’s essential that you book the right bus for your group and your trip. You want enough room for everyone to be comfortable, without a lot of wasted space. You also want the amenities necessary to make it a comfortable ride.
At US Coachways, we’ll consider all the important factors of your trip—how many attendees you’ll have, how long you’ll be on the road, what you’ll need to take with you or what you might bring home, and any special needs of your passengers. Then we’ll work directly with our national network of vendors to secure the ideal coach for you.
If you’re heading to Austin with a small-to-mid-sized group, we’ll probably recommend the mini-bus. There are mini-buses that seat anywhere from 24 to 35 passengers and they all come with plenty of storage space. For larger groups, the full-sized bus is a great fit, with accommodations for as many as 57 people. Multiple bus rentals are always an option.
The mini-buses all come with plush high-back bucket seats, climate control and AM-FM stereo. The full-sized buses also have luggage space underneath, storage bins above the seats, an on-board bathroom, DVD player and P.A. system. Additional features, including Wifi, electrical outlets, hardwood floors, leather seats and tables, may all be available for an additional fee.
