St. Louis Party Bus
St. Louis Party Bus, operated through Fun Tyme Limousine, offers a full range of vehicles. All of them have flat-screen TVs, DVD players and powerful sound systems that can handle your CDs or ipods. Seating is not the typical face-forward style found in buses or planes, but wraparound benches for conversation. A built-in bar and cooler let you mix up whatever beverages you want to bring along, and tinted windows plus club-like fiber optic lighting inside give you the full rock-star experience. Save money by booking mid-week instead of on the weekend if you have a choice.
STL Road Pony
STL Road Pony also offers a fleet of luxurious buses, with wraparound bench seating, club-style lighting and dancing poles, in case someone in your party gets the urge to have a workout. There are powerhouse sound systems in all the vehicles. Bring your own CDs or ipod and your own alcohol if you want to drink on the bus.

Clients of Exclusive Transportation are fiercely loyal, and for good reason. The owner, Aubrey Davis, has built a reputation for providing extraordinary and dependable service. This limousine service is a little more low key than the party buses above, a great option for a more subdued or smaller group.

St. Louis Barcycle
The Barcycle is a mardi gras-colored, pedal-powered barhopping machine. Up to 16 people can be seated at the bar, and when they all begin to pedal, away it goes! A canopy over the top shelters you from any light drizzle that might fall on your parade. The Barcycle is only available for routes in Soulard. You choose your stops and bring your own snacks and beverages if you want them on board. The Barcycle can also play your music through a sound system if you like.
