With its fleet of luxury buses and limousines, Columbia Party Bus makes sure that the journey is as fun as the destination. Up to 12 passengers can comfortably lounge in a Lincoln super-stretch limo, equipped with a stellar sound system and wet bar. Leather wraparound seating hosts up to 18 in the VIP Entertainer limo, where visitors can craft drinks at three bars, soundtrack the festivities with tunes from CDs and iPods, or watch a DVD on the giant HDTV screen. The Dictator, a 24- to 40-person party bus, evokes a nightclub atmosphere with front and rear bars, multiple TVs, two laser-light systems, a separate VIP section, and a bouncer strapped to the roof. As Columbia Party Bus's pro drivers safely navigate clients through Columbia and its outlying areas, a complimentary concierge service eases logistical hassles by procuring dinner reservations, live DJs, and event tickets.
