Party Bus Etiquette: What You Need To Know

by Krin Murphy

Renting a party bus can be a great way to celebrate a special occasion; after all, a party bus allows you and your friends the ability to get driven around in style, allowing you to enjoy a few drinks on your way to or from each destination without worrying about finding a designated driver. Still, if you're planning on renting out a party bus in the near future, there are some basic etiquette tips you need to follow.

Don't Distract the Driver

Your driver is behind the wheel of a very large vehicle; the last thing he or she needs is to become distracted by you and your party. While it's reasonable to think that you're going to be making noise, listening to music, and talking as a group, cut your driver some slack and try not to get too crazy. Remember that your driver needs to be focused on the road, so it's a good idea to save any questions or comments for when you're parked or stopped. At any time, your driver reserves the right to pull over if your group is being distracting.

Obey the Law

This should go without saying, but often times, party bus drivers run into problems when people think they can get away with certain things that are illegal just because they're on a party bus. In reality, all the laws that apply outside of the bus still apply outside. Minors cannot drink on a party bus, and unless you live in a place without public intoxication laws, even of-age adults shouldn't partake in too much drinking on the bus. Believe it or not, you breaking the law on a party bus could get not only you, but your driver, in a lot of legal trouble.

Don't Forget to Tip

Finally, understand that your party bus driver relies pretty heavily on tips, and that any money you paid for renting the bus probably did not include a tip for your driver (unless it was otherwise noted). As such, you should always make it a point to pool some money together and tip your driver at the end of the night. Tip the same or a little bit more than you typically would a taxi or limo driver, provided that the service was decent. From there, you'll be sure to be in good standing with the party bus company should you want to rent one out in the future.
