How Much Does a Party Bus Charge Per Hour?

Party bus prices vary from one transportation provider to another, depending on the vehicle size, type, number of passengers, time of year and region of rental.

In Alberta, standard party bus rates range from $249 to $400+ per hour for most providers. At AM PM, our prices range from $175 to $289 per hour, which is substantially lower than other providers.

Why do Party Bus Rates Vary, and What Affects pricing?

There are many factors that are taken into consideration in the calculation of party bus rental rates, such as:

  • Size of the vehicle
    A 30-passenger party bus will incur a higher rate than a 16-passenger bus. Having multiple party bus sizes gives groups of travelers options to select the size (and price) that suits their specific needs, so smaller groups aren’t ‘stuck’ paying for more space than they need.
  • Type of vehicle
    This is important because your group will want to save as much money as possible, yet still get the most high-quality ride available. A high-end vehicle with tons of state-of-the-art amenities will charge a higher rate than a more bare-bones, standard rental.It is important to research any party bus you may consider for renting, as it is quite common for rental companies to provide run-down, outdated vehicles, or worse yet… old school buses converted into makeshift party buses! You’ll want to make sure the bus you rent will be top-of-the-line and has the perks your party will want to enjoy.  (Read this article to find out what you should know before renting a party bus in Alberta.)
  • Region of travel
    Terrain, ease of navigation, toll rates, gasoline prices and more can affect party bus rental pricing, so rates will vary depending upon the area being traveled.
  • Date of travel
    The day, season and time of day can also affect party bus rental pricing. At certain times of year, such as graduation time or winter vacation, party bus rentals are high in demand and come at a higher premium than off-peak dates. Rates are also affected by time of day, in that high-traffic periods require longer travel times, so may require more rental hours to accommodate the occasion.
  • Amenities
    Party buses typically offer several ‘bells and whistles’ for an added fee. Depending on how may of these additional perks you choose to enjoy with your group, pricing may go up accordingly.
