Bar Hopping Done Right
Bar hopping in New Orleans can be so much fun, but also rather exhausting during the dog days of summer. Why not rent a party bus to get you cool and stress-free to your favorite watering-holes in the city? You can get a refresher on the bus before jumping into the next bar. This way you can get all your friends together and you can cover everybody’s favorite spot, and if a place happens to disappoint…..you just move on. An added advantage, it will be much easier keeping your group together since everybody will want to hop on the air conditioned bus to get a break from the heat. Walking when the feels-like temperatures are in the triple digits is not a lot of fun. You won’t have to wait for a cab or any other ride-sharing service, your party bus will be waiting for you and pick your group up, when you are ready to move on. And once it is time to go home, the bus will bring everybody home safely, no designated driver is needed in your group. Alert Transportation can make this unique New Orleans experience happen for you and your friends. Also renting a bus could save everybody money. As you know, ride-share services will hike up prices substantially during surge times.
Let’s Do The Math
We have a fleet of 8 minibuses. They differ in seize (14 to 33 passengers). If you get a group of 32 people together (plus yourself) and you all rent the bus for let’s say 6 hours, you would pay approximately $768 (The bus costs $128 per hour). This means each of you would be paying about $23.27 for transportation for the night. If you decided to make it a long night, let’s say 8 hours, the cost would be $ 1,024. Still each of you would only pay about $32. Keep in mind, the bus can pick you up from your house will drive you to all your desired bars and can drop you off at your home at the end of the night.
If you want to party in between bars a party bus might be the way to go. We have two party buses. They each fit 26 passengers. Both offer a killer sound system, a wet bar, DVD Stereo systems and a dance pole. If you get 25 people together (plus yourself) the bus would cost you $ 1,128 for 6 hours ($188 per hour). Each of you would end up paying about $44 for a fun way to get around town for the night. If you are planning for long night, let’s say 8 hours the bus would cost you $1,504, which means everybody would have to pay about $58 to be chauffeured around and dropped off at home at the end of the night. Neither ride-sharing services nor cabs can beat that price and you are in an actual party bus!
