Charter Bus Rentals for Group Transportation - M1235

For Bus Rentals, Choose Salt Lake Express

At Salt Lake Express, we’re proud of the fact that we are in the business of simplification. We facilitate travel in a hassle-free and affordable manner. Traveling already presents enough difficulties as it is. And we want to trim the fat. So if you’re looking around for bus rentals, we’re here to lovingly say “stop”. With our daily shuttles and charter service, we have you covered.

Daily Shuttles

The easiest way to get to where you need to go is by booking on one of our many daily shuttles. Salt Lake Express’ route includes more than 100 stops between Great Falls, Montana and Las Vegas, Nevada. We also include out-of-the-way destinations such as the popular Jackson Hole, Boise, and even down to Page, Arizona. With Salt Lake as our hub (thus the name), we nevertheless serve passengers all over the intermountain west.

If you are looking for bus rentals, you are probably looking to move a group of people, and not just yourself. Daily shuttles are still a good, efficient, and easy way to get yourself and a few people to a destination. If, however, you have a big group you wish to transport, we have options for that as well.

Charter Service

At Salt Lake Express, we’re not only proud of the extent of our travel route but what beautiful landmarks it includes. Yellowstone, Snow Canyon, Zion, the Grand Tetons, and Arches are just a few of the many parks along the route. These are places best enjoyed with friends and family. The best way to get you all there is with our Salt Lake Express charter service.

What sets our charter service apart from other bus rentals is the value we add to your trip. It starts at checkout; when you reserve a charter, you won’t break the bank. From there on, it’s comfortable seating, amenities, and friendly, outgoing drivers all the way in.

If you’re looking for a way to head to Yellowstone or Vegas or wherever en masse, don’t worry about other bus rentals. You get the best in service and convenience when you go with Salt Lake Express, whether you and a few friends take a shuttle or if you need an entire charter bus.

Salt Lake Express offers great deals from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City

3 Reasons to Travel from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City

One of Salt Lake Express’ most popular routes is the Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City corridor. This stretch of I-15 takes passengers through fascinating and underrated parts of Idaho, like the hills of Inkom and Devil Creek Reservoir. It also brings you within close proximity to a number of state parks, ghost towns, and trails. And, of course, it connects two great cities of the west with plenty to do and people to see in each.

So why choose Salt Lake Express? There are, of course, other options: a different shuttle company, carpooling with friends, or even driving yourself down. While there are many ways for you to get from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City, there are a few ways that Salt Lake Express makes it completely worth your while.

Here are just three of them to give you a small taste.


A low $29 fare

In recognition of how many people take this route, Salt Lake Express offers a one-way fare for Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City starting at $29. That’s $29 you wouldn’t need to spend on gas or parking downtown (which we’ll get to in a sec).

Plus, Salt Lake Express always offering discount codes via email or social media that could knock another $5 or even 20% (about $6) off your ticket price! So you’re looking at under $25 to make the trip if you play your cards right.

Door-to-door pickup and dropoff

In addition to paying less for comfortable and quality travel, Idaho Falls and Salt Lake City each have plenty of stops for pickup and dropoff. And if you are traveling from Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City, did you know that the shuttle can pick you up right from your front door? In addition to the airport and Shaka’s Oasis, Salt Lake Express offers door-to-door pickup service in Idaho Falls. Less than $30 fare and you can get picked up at home? This deal just keeps getting better and better all the time.

Don’t pay for parking

Whether you’re heading to the airport or downtown, parking can get tricky — and expensive. By traveling with Salt Lake Express, we eliminate that problem. That means you can enjoy your trip without worrying about how much money your parked car is racking up. You can wander City Creek or go to a Real Salt Lake without fretting over street meters or your car’s safety.


Between the low fare and the convenience of both pickup and dropoff, Salt Lake Express has strived diligently to serve passengers according to their needs. The logistics of the ride aside, they also make an effort to make sure the ride is comfortable and safe.

The Utah Shakespeare Festival street signs

A Festival Rich with History

The Utah Shakespeare Festival was founded with the mission of presenting life-affirming classic and contemporary plays, with Shakespeare’s work as the cornerstone. They hope these performances will entertain, enrich, and educate. And they have done just that, for over fifty years. Today, the festival attracts attention all around the country every year, as people come from far and wide to act in or watch the plays. Since its formation, the Festival has received multiple awards including the 2000 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre, the 2001 National Governors Association Award, a 2011 Emmy award, and many others, including Best of State in arts and entertainment.

When the Festival first began in 1962, it attracted a little over 3,000 visitors. Today, it brings in over 120,000 each season. They now have four different theaters, including the famous Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre, a beautiful reconstruction based on Elizabethan-era theaters, similar to The Globe,  the theater in London Shakespeare worked in and then part-owned. Of course, some adjustments have been made to make the Engelstad Shakespearean Theatre comfortable and accessible to modern audiences. Overall, however, it is still a unique opportunity to see Shakespeare’s work in a near-authentic setting.

To learn the whole story of the festival’s formation and growth, check out this article on their website.

Performers at the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City

Your Quick Guide to this Season’s Lineup

Not sure which play you should attend? That’s okay — we have got you covered. Here is a quick and easy guide to each play that will be performed this season.

The Greenshow – Ashton Family Greenshow Commons

June 28 – September 8, 2018

The Greenshow is Utah Shakespeare Festival’s free nightly entertainment. Lighthearted song and dance serve as the festival’s nightly welcome to help guests get in the spirit of theater before they enter the play. There are three different shows, which are presented on alternating nights. The show often includes singing, magic, dance, and lots of fun.

Henry VI Part One

June 29 – September 6, 2018 – Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre

Henry V has died, leaving his son to be crowned king. With war raging in France, various factions vying for power in England, and approaching civil war, Shakespeare weaves together this seldom-told piece of history into a stunning tale of political intrigue.

Othello

June 28 – October 13, 2018 – Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre

Shakespeare’s Othello is a powerfully tragic story of passion and anguish. It is a fast-paced, devastating tale of how jealousy and fear can unravel the most intelligent minds and purest loves. It’s the story of a Venetian general who secretly marries the beautiful Desdemona. Iago, spiteful and jealous of Othello, is led to believe that Othello has had an affair with his wife. Iago’s anger transforms into a nefarious plot to get revenge on Othello.

Crowd at the Shakespeare Festival

The Merry Wives of Windsor

June 28 – September 8, 2018 – Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre

The Merry Wives of Windsor is one of Shakespeare’s most well-known comedies. It is the story of a quirky old man, Falstaff, who has his lusty eyes on a couple of middle-class housewives. These women, however, will not easily let Falstaff get the better of them, and their wit ultimately gets the better of him. This play is lighthearted and fun.

The Foreigner

June 29 – October 13, 2018 – Randall L. Jones Theatre

Written by Larry Shue, the Foreigner is a comedy about Charlie, a vacationer seeking solitude at a Georgia hunting lodge. To avoid having to interact with the other guests, he pretends to be a foreigner who doesn’t understand English. However, he soon witnesses bizarre schemes by people who think he can’t understand a word they say, leading to confusion and non-stop hilarity that set up one of the funniest endings in all of theater.

Big River

June 30 – September 1, 2018 – Randall L. Jones Theatre

From a book by William Hauptman, adapted from a novel by Mark Twain, gives us another look into the adventures of the beloved classic-American character Huck Finn as he tries to help his friend Jim escape slavery. Featuring original lyrics and music by Roger Miller, audience members describe this play as hilarious, suspenseful, and heartwarming.

The Merchant of Venice

June 30 – September 7, 2018 – Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre

This play is often described as a comedy, and yet, throughout the years, we have begun to call attention to many of the deep-rooted themes Shakespeare wove throughout this play.  When Antonio, a wealthy Venetian merchant, borrows money to help his dear friend Bassanio pursue love, things turn south when the moneylender learns that Antonio may not be able to make good on his bond. The Merchant of Venice is as much a suspenseful tragedy as it is a heartwarming romance-comedy. It is a story of racism, revenge, love, humor, greed, justice and mercy.

An Iliad

July 12 – October 9, 2018 – Randall L. Jones Theatre

This play is a modern retelling of the ancient classic, written by By Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare. An Iliad is the tale of the events following the Trojan war, sung by the Poet, who witnessed it all.

Pearl’s in the House

August 23 – October 13, 2018 – Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre

Workshopped at the Festival in 2017, this musical play focuses on Pearl Bailey, performer and special delegate to the United Nations in a racially-charged mid-twentieth century America. Bailey was a trailblazer for African-American women, yet a talk-show host in 1987 questions many of her motives. So Bailey responds the only way she knows how—through her music.

The Liar

September 14 – October 13, 2018 – Randall L. Jones Theatre

In this play by David Ives, the charming Dorante cannot tell the truth, and his manservant Cliton cannot tell a lie. From this simple premise springs one of the Western world’s greatest comedies, a spirited seventeenth-century French farce brilliantly adapted for today, complete with mistaken lovers, suspicious fathers, sparkling romance, frothy comedy, and an abundance of breathtakingly intricate “alternative facts.”

Shaka’s Oasis in Idaho Falls: A Tasty Shuttle Stop

We love convenience

It is hard to deny the convenience of a gas station. Roll in, fill up, and then get back on track to your destination. Add the fact that literally every gas station out there is also a convenience store, jam-packed with shelves of snacks, goodies, drinks, and just about anything else you could ever need while on a trip, and we have something truly amazing.

But let’s be honest, as convenient as a gas station is, not all stations are created equally. Especially the food on their made-to-order menu. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Spongy potato wedges, waxy mozzarella sticks, soggy pizza slices, or chicken nuggets that squeak when you chew them.

We’ve all tasted this kind of food before. Hunger gets the better of us and we find ourselves wolfing down the first thing we see, leaving behind nothing but disappointment and much regret.

That is why we love Idaho Falls shuttle stop Shaka’s Oasis located just off 1-15. They are one of those exceptional few stations out there that truly delivers convenient and tasty food, all at a nice price, too.

Shaka’s Oasis

Shaka’s Oasis in Idaho Falls is so much more than a gas station. The moment you step foot inside you will see what we mean. Sure, they’ve got everything every convenience store does, but they also have so much more. Try an in-house chef and a fresh deli for starters. The store also has a clean, friendly vibe that is much appreciated.

Chef Chris and his team work daily to provide delicious and fresh food every day, from mouthwatering sandwiches to fresh, breaded chicken, salads, and more. They are always running deals and promotions throughout the week, including free food with certain purchases or awesome discounts as well, so don’t forget to follow them on Instagram.

Make Shaka’s Oasis your Idaho Falls pickup or drop off location

We have been using Shaka’s Oasis as a pickup location for some time now because delicious and convenient food is the perfect companion to a busy traveler. And now with online ordering capabilities, it easier than ever to plan ahead and have food waiting for you when you arrive in Idaho Falls, or ready for you to grab just before you board the shuttle to depart.

So join us, and the many happy customers, who choose and trust Shaka’s Oasis for delicious and convenient food you can trust and depend on. Give them a try. They just might win you over, too. I just had a sandwich from them yesterday, and I’ve been singing “Aloha Friday” ever since and it’s only Thursday.

Salt Lake Express is your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Your Salt Lake City Airport Shuttle Solution

This is a familiar situation. When you fly into Salt Lake City International Airport, you often have someone who can pick you up. But sometimes, that option isn’t available. You may have flown into Salt Lake, but maybe you need to get somewhere else. Perhaps you’re going back to school in Provo, Logan, Pocatello, or Rexburg. Or you’re visiting family in Spanish Fork or Ogden. Regardless of why you fly in, you’ll always need a ride from the airport. And that is where Salt Lake Express — your Salt Lake City airport shuttle solution — comes in.

Salt Lake Express is a shuttle and charter company that serves over 100 locations throughout Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Arizona. Although we serve plenty of regional airports as well as domestic and international, Salt Lake International is definitely one of the higher demanding stops. The capital of Utah is not only a central hub for our company, but it is a stepping stone and gateway for hundreds of destinations across the West. Our goal is to make this area, as well as your feat of arriving at your destination, smaller.

With numerous other transportation options, here are some reasons why you should make us your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.


Don't pay for parking, use your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Don’t pay for parking.

Flying can be both stressful and expensive, so why incur even more stress and cost by driving yourself to the airport? Economy lot parking is $9 per day, which really adds up if you want to make your trip worth the cost of flying. Plus, if you drive yourself, you have to navigate Salt Lake City traffic. It can get pretty bad and drivers can get pretty reckless: believe us, we make the trip multiple times a day!

The bottom line is, instead of paying to park for days between navigating crazy traffic, you could take a shuttle. Relax in our high-back seats, rest your eyes, and let our experienced drivers take care of things. And when you arrive at the airport, Salt Lake Express will drop you off right at the terminal. No waiting for ground transportation, no cramming onto the Green Line. Ours is a Salt Lake City airport shuttle you can rely on.

Salt Lake Express is your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Ride in comfort, convenience, and safety.

The result of not worrying about paying for parking or dodging crazy drivers is that elusive state: comfort. And Salt Lake Express does more than just give you a seat: our four different models of buses each feature high-back, reclining seats, spacious leg room, and amenities. The convenience factor plays in here, as select buses include bottled water, and restrooms. We not only want our riders to feel they are taking the easiest way to and from the airport, we also want them to enjoy themselves. Plug in, stay hydrated, stretch those legs, and take it easy when you ride our Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Above all else, safety is of the utmost importance to us. All other points are moot if we can’t guarantee a safe journey. Our drivers are courteous and friendly but they also are professional, CDL-certified individuals who take their job seriously. Probably the largest common denominator between our goal for your comfort and convenience is safety. When you feel safe, and you will on our buses, you feel comfortable. And there’s no more convenient way to travel than to arrive without incident.

Use coupon codes to ride your Salt Lake City airport shuttle.

Take advantage of readily available coupon codes.

Salt Lake Express appreciates their customers so much that they are more than willing to give out promo codes so you can save money. There are always deals going on on Facebook, Instagram, and the website, but if all else fails, ask. Message the Facebook page or contact customer support and someone will get back to you as quickly as possible. Most promo codes are typically good for $5 off at purchase.

Also, remember to subscribe to their email list. After every time you ride, you will get an email within the week thanking you for choosing Salt Lake Express and, you got it, supplying you with a new promo code just for you.

In fact, just for getting this far, we’ll offer you a promo code good for any travel in 2018. Apply code slcairport18 for $5 off.

We are a Salt Lake City airport shuttle that takes you all over.

Although it has been implied many times before now, we figured we’d come right out and say it: we go all over. Maybe you live in southern Utah but flights into Las Vegas were too expensive; fly into Salt Lake and we’ll get you home. We also serve the areas a little closer to home, including seven locations right in Salt Lake in case you just need to get a little closer to home. From destinations all along the Wasatch front to Great Falls to Boise to Las Vegas, we have you covered.


You want your trip — especially those that involve flying — to go smoothly, and so do we. There’s no reason to make things complicated in arriving and departing the airport. Salt Lake Express cuts the fat and allows you to find some enjoyment in travel once again. As you plan your next trip through Salt Lake International, be sure to ride with Salt Lake Express.
