Props to the driver of this bus tonight in NBTX! Navigated the craziness of Creekside traffic better than most locals 😂
If you want to deal with an unprofessional company, book on!

I booked a trip with them for my husbands surprise party March 21. Unfortunately, the distilleries we were supposed to visit were shut down due to Covid-19( a situation completely out of our control). The minute I found out, I reached out Michael “Stix”, the owner to let him know and to find out what we could do about the deposit I had already paid. I NEVER heard back from him despite the MULTIPLE attempts-calls, texts, emails. The day of the event I called yet again to ensure his bus would not be showing up to pick up our group as we were not there-still heard nothing. Low and behold, when I called and disputed my charge with the credit card company, he can answer his phone and discuss the situation with them. How unprofessional. I would gladly have figured out a situation for use in the future but not now. If you want to keep customers, or have repeat customers, you might want to check your customer service. I could understand if I just up and cancelled and wanted my money back, but the state literally shut down.
Only book with these guys if you like horrible customer service!

Ninja Buses is still hitting it hard moving essential PPE ( personal protective equipment and supplies ) around the Country. Thank you to Pure Aviation for giving us this amazing opportunity to help our fellow man/ women during these trying times. The entire Ninja Bus fleet has been sidelined from doing the party bus thing until it is safe again.
Besides PPE Logistics we are also stringing masks, taking in donations for purchasing PPE for local needs and selling PPE.
Hit me up if you want to donate or want to purchase Masks, Sanitizer or Gloves. Stay safe out there and much love.

Today we spent the morning out on Old Bastrop Hwy. for a land cleanup leading to the San Marcos river. This was a first for most of our group. Just some of the items collected were bottles, cans, diapers, car parts, broken glass and even a pitch fork just to mention a few.
Big thanks to our leader, Laney Lyle representing The Eyes of the San Marcos Riverfor coordinating today's event and to our host AquaBrew for providing the great hospitality before and after the clean up! We are thankful for the H-E-BTeam for being our partner today. We would also like to thank Ninja Buses - Austin Party Bus Rentals and our personal driver, Easton for providing the fun shuttle service! Every bit helps. Let's all pitch in and make a difference!
It's safe to say we won't be forgetting SIMS Foundation Presents: A Call to Action anytime soon. This past Monday, we gathered at Arlyn Studios with some of Austin's finest musicians, and a magical evening unfolded that showed just how special our community is.

This would not have happened without the tremendous effort put forth by the SIMS Board of Directors, led by Ellee Fletcher, Darlene Starr, Julie Korioth, Carlos Sosa, David Flanary, and SIMS ED Patsy Dolan Bouressa.

Thank you to our evening's sponsors for their generous monetary and in-kind contributions: Arlyn Studios, La Mancha Tex Mex Tavern, Nine Banded Whiskey, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Odell Brewing Co, Stemmari Wine, Music Water, Rambler, Maine Root, King Daddy Ice, Via 313 Pizza, Ninja Buses - Austin Party Bus Rentals, Personique, Luck Reunion, and Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden.

Gina Whittington at WHITT was instrumental in planning this event and keeping the night going smoothly. Tom Vale of Frog Music Licensing stepped up IMMEDIATELY to secure the talent you saw Monday night. Everyone sounded incredible thanks to Jamie Wellwarth at Nomad Sound, Inc.. The night was captured beautifully by Merrick Ales at Merrick Ales Photography and Dave Pedley of davep photography, and you can check out more great photos from Monday on Dave's page!

And let's not forget about the artists. We're surprised we fit so much talent into Arlyn Studios and the building was still standing the next day!

The night was MC'd by Turk Pipkin, and we're still buzzing about performances by Don Harvey & A is Red, Nagavalli, Reid Umstattd, Shawn Pander, Water and Rust, Drew Womack, Danny Malone, Pike and Sutton, Parker Chapin, Carson McHone, Jazz Mills, Corey Baum of Croy and the Boys, Eric Tessmer, Rob Baird, Dan Dyer, Suzanna Choffel, Mélat, Taméca Jones, Shinyribs, Bob Schneider Music, Grooveline Horns, Sauce The Band, Zach Reid, Matt Weatherly, Daniel Watson, Matthew Thomas Muehling, Preston Wait of Josh Abbott Band, Fernando Castillo, and Carlos Sosa.

Last, but certainly not least, THANK YOU to everyone who came out, helped in any way, showed your support, and spread some old fashioned Austin music love while helping us raise funds to keep our vital mental health services available to the Austin (and beyond!) music community.
Getting ready for our favorite time of the year... Wurstfest 2019!

What's everyone's favorite dive bar in Austin?

Ah, dive bars. The esteemed hole-in-the-wall establishments. Reviled by some and adored by many, dive bars are their own breed of bar.
Austin, TX is home to many of these fine locales, and each one has their own distinct flair. But which ones should you visit while you're in Austin? We've got the answers for you right here.

What Is an Austin Dive Bar?

Dive bars have the extra dose of personality that other bars don't. When you go to a dive bar, you're guaranteed to run into regulars.
You'll see, dive bars may not look like much on the inside, but they have established a stable clientele that ensures you'll find a sense of community in the bar you visit.

Other things you'll find? Pool tables, jukeboxes, oddball décor and dirty bathrooms. That last one isn't exactly a positive aspect, but the quality of the bathrooms has become a staple of dive bars everywhere.
A few things to remember about dive bars:
Some of them still allow smoking indoors
Some of them only accept cash
Some of them only have one beer on tap, and it may not be very good (one local dive bar has only Natural Light on tap for $2 a pint).

The three above points are reasons some people don't prefer to visit dive bars, but many would argue that those "negative" qualities are part of their charm!
There is a wonderful unpretentious quality to dive bars that many people find endearing, so if you are one of those people then keep on reading!

How Can a Dive Bar Tour Improve Your Bachelor Party?

Visiting a few dive bars can add a little bit of character to your bachelor party (not that you don't have enough already).
It can also be a fun change of scenery from the formal wineries and casual breweries that people tend to visit on their big weekends. Of course, when you go to a dive bar you're going to get something very casual, but that's kind of the point, isn't it?

If you've got a whole weekend planned, and one of those nights is spent on 6th Street, consider switching it up a bit and doing a dive bar tour. Look at it this way: everyone goes to 6th Street when they come to Austin.
If you're coming into town and you tell a local "Let's go to 6th Street!", they're probably going to roll their eyes.

However, if you opt to do a dive bar tour, then that brings something fresh and exciting to the proceedings.
The added bonus of dive bars is that there are plenty of them which even locals haven't discovered yet, so you could easily find a diamond in the rough that most people haven't caught on to yet.

​How Can Ninja Buses Help?

Austin is home to dozens of dive bars. Whether you're north, east, south, west or central, there's always a dive bar near you.

But which ones are the must-visit bars? Here at Ninja Buses, we know all the best dive bars to visit in town.
In fact, one of our favorite dive bars is located just five minutes from our garage! Located in central Austin on the west side of 5th street, The Mean-Eyed Cat is a Johnny Cash-themed dive bar that also doubles as a satellite location for Stubb's BBQ.

In the same area (on the other side of Mopac/Loop 1) you'll find Deep Eddy Cabaret, which has been opened for more than 60 years!
Moving to the north side of town, it's imperative that you visit Lala's Little Nugget, which is decorated like Christmas all year round, and Workhorse Bar with its tree stump chairs.

Heading on over to the East side, you'll find a plethora of houses that have been converted into bars. The legendary East side is changing fast, but you'll still find a good bit of old-fashioned dive bars like La Perla and its friendly staff and Shangri-La with its enormous outside patio.

Not all of the best dive bars are centered in one location, so you're going to want to travel around the city to hit all of the hot spots.
Ninja Buses can help you do that by renting you one of our party buses! Not only does this allow you to keep everyone in your group together from bar to bar, but it also ensures that you're able to keep the party going between stops.
Don't split everyone up in a bunch of Ubers.
And don't drive around town in your own cars (drinking and driving is a big no-no!).

​Rent a party bus, which comes packed with tons of cool amenities like speaker systems with Bluetooth capabilities, flat-screen TVs, Nintendos and more!

Oh... we almost forgot our favorite bar Mean Eyed Cat!

Charter Bus vs. Party Bus: What Is the Difference?

We see buses traveling on the highway every day. From school buses to party buses to charter buses to tour buses, there is a wide variety of buses being used on the roads today.

​But how do you know which one you need to use for your event? Every type of bus has its own distinct personality, so let's delve into a few of them, starting with charter buses in Austin.

Charter buses, also known as coaches or motor coaches, are essentially very large buses. They are just as big as a tour bus (if not bigger), but they lack the special amenities that tour buses offer like beds, sofas, a mini-kitchen, etc.
​The benefit that charter buses have over all other buses, however, is their capacity. Most charter buses can fit upwards of 35-40 people in their large cabins.

Most often used for corporate travel, charter buses are primarily used for long-distance trips. If a company has a conference to attend that is out of the city where they are based, then a charter bus is probably the vehicle option it will go with since airfare tends to be on the pricier side of things.

Since they are made for long-distance travel, charter buses are frequently referred to as an airplane on wheels. They have large luggage compartments underneath the cabin, TV screens behind the headrests (or TVs that fold down from the ceiling), small restrooms, Wi-Fi and power outlets.
​They are very useful for business travel, even if they don't come with road attendants.

Can You Have a Bachelor Party on a Charter Bus in Austin?

While you have the option to use any type of vehicle(s) for your bachelor party, it isn't recommended to use a charter bus.
​Yes, you'll be able to move everyone around town in the same vehicle, thereby removing the complication of coordinating a bunch of rideshare vehicles, but it lacks a certain pizzazz that you're probably going to want on your big night.

As stated above, charter buses are typically used for long-distance trips. If you're just driving around Austin going from bar to bar, a charter bus isn't the type of vehicle you want to use for your transportation.
​It's big and bulky, which is fine, but it doesn't really "fit" with a lot of the places you're probably going to visit the night of your bachelor party (i.e., bars, dive or otherwise).

Charter buses are a great option for transportation on the day of your wedding, but not for your bachelor party. They just don't scream "party," and while you absolutely can use one for your bachelor party, it doesn't mean you should use one.

​What Are Other Options Besides Charter Buses?

As mentioned, a charter bus isn't really your best option when it comes to modes of transportation for your bachelor party. While they are perfect for corporate travel (and sports teams), they don't really set the right mood for a bachelor party. Unless you're traveling across the state, it's best to steer clear of charter buses.

You do have the option to split your group up among a bunch of rideshare vehicles like Uber or Lyft. That will be affordable and mean that everyone has to be responsible for their own ride, but it does mean splitting your friends up on your big night.
​That can be alright if you're just bar-hopping downtown, but if you're going to places all over the city, then it defeats the purpose of gathering a group of your best friends together.

The best option for your bachelor party is to book a party bus. Not only will you get to keep your entire group together between stops, but you'll be able to keep the party going without any breaks! A nightclub on wheels, a party bus offers amenities that you won't find in any other modes of transportation. Stereo systems with Bluetooth hookups, flat-screen TVs, karaoke, wet bars, neon lights, you name it! A party bus probably has it.

​It's such a growing industry that more and more companies are finding new things to add to their buses, so do some research and find the perfect bus for you. You'll also be able to bring your own alcohol and leave it on the bus so it's waiting for you when you come back.

Contact Ninja Buses today to inquire about booking a party bus for your bachelor party!

So You Think You Can Drink? Here Are The Best Drinks for A Party Bus!

One of the primary reasons that people rent a party bus is that they can drink on the road. After all, you're not the one driving, are you? What should you bring, though? A party bus, while spacious, is not as big as a house. Because of that, you've got to be a bit more selective about best drinks to bring (and make sure you account for the space everything you bring will take up).

Best Drinks for a Party Bus Trip
There really isn't a "best drink" for a party bus, but the most common beverage choice is beer. At the end of the day, however, it really depends on what you are celebrating. If you're hosting a tailgate party, then beer is absolutely the way to go. Going on a winery tour? Well, maybe bring some wine! Let's look at the three best drinks to bring on a party bus:

Beer
As we mentioned above, beer is the number one drink of choice on a party bus. Since you'll be drinking for hours on end, you don't want to get too inebriated too early in the trip. Who wants to black out when they've just spent a bunch of money on a party bus? Plus, beer fits the bill for almost any occasion. From brewery tours to a simple night out on the town, beer is king.

Wine
One of the top destinations for party bus groups is a winery. Winery tours, especially those in the Texas Hill Country, are becoming more and more popular for party bus groups. If you're doing a winery tour, you're going to want to stick with drinking wine between drives. Why is that? Well, mixing any type of alcohol that isn't wine with wine is a recipe for a hangover. Keep it simple and bring some wine to your party bus!

Vodka
For a bachelor party, whiskey may be the liquor of choice, but vodka seems to be the most widely-consumed liquor among the masses. Rum is too sweet. Gin is too spicy. Whiskey is too strong. But vodka? Vodka is just right for easy drinking. Now, this can prove to be dangerous, as easy-drinking usually translates to quickly consumed. So drink responsibly, and everyone will have a good time!

​What Should You Prepare?
Don't forget, it is illegal for a party bus company to provide you with any liquor unless they have a liquor license, which most party bus companies do not have. So the first thing you should think to prepare is your ice chests.

A good rule of thumb is to bring one ice chest for every four people in your party. If you're bringing a mix of different types of alcohol, try to keep them grouped together in their own separate ice chests.

One thing that people tend to forget is cups! They never forget the booze or the ice, but people always forget cups. So be sure to buy some red solo cups or some plastic wine glasses for your alcohol.

Another good tip? Bring an extra ice chest full of bottled water. If you're going to be drinking for 8+ hours, you're going to want to hydrate!

​How Can Ninja Buses Help?

While Ninja Buses cannot provide any alcohol for you, that doesn't mean we can't help you out! After all, we are providing the mode of transportation, aren't we? What we can do is offer you our expertise, which includes recommendations on how to have a good time. Those recommendations can be shared upon booking with us.

When you book a Ninja Bus, you will get access to an ice chest with bottled waters on all of our buses so all you have to worry about is the booze and food. If you'd like, you can even drop off your booze and food the day before a drive so we can have it set up for you when we pick you up! We know party-planning can be stressful. Our job is to make that process as easy as possible so you can actually enjoy your trip.

Common Party Bus Myths!

Party buses are a fun and unique group transportation solution to almost any event. Since it's a fairly new industry, there are definitely a few common misunderstandings about what a party bus company has to offer. Here are some common myths held about renting a party bus:

​Myth #1 - Party Buses are just for Bachelor and Bachelorettes:
It is true that Austin is a major destination for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties and they do make up a large portion of our guests. We even have a bus called "The Bachelor" ;) The truth is we service a super wide variety of occasions including birthdays, special events, corporate outings, proms, river floating trips, concerts, lake trips, and wine tours to name a few. Fortunately, we find ourselves servicing some of the strangest events you could imagine, which makes our job really interesting!

Myth #2 - Party Buses are just for College Students:
There are some great schools in the Austin area and we absolutely love to host University of Texas students on social outings and float trips. However, this makes up just a portion of our business as we usually see ALL AGES on our party buses. They are truly fun for everyone and we'll even offer a discount if you bring your grandma ;P Ninja Buses has a wide range of vehicles with appropriate options for any group of people.

Myth #3 - Party Buses are not appropriate for kids:
Party Buses are perfect for kids! We have done several birthday party trips for kids and always have a blast. There are lots of activities in town for young Ninjas and it is smart to keep them all together safely.

​Myth #4 - Party Buses are always School Buses:
We have a really fun and unique fleet of buses with all kinds of interesting party vehicles that range from tour buses, city buses, vintage party buses, shuttles, and a "Badillac" party car. Expect comfort and ice-cold A/C! Check out our fleet of Austin Party Buses on our website ninjabuses.com
