San Francisco sporting event transportation
Spring is on its way! Here in the Bay Area, we’re fortunate to enjoy a temperate climate year-round, yet we understand that spring is a symbol of new life, a time to celebrate the beautiful outdoors! Especially if you’re a transplant from another part of the country or even the world – perhaps one that suffers foot upon foot of dense, wet snow – you might have a particular fondness for April and May regardless of where you live now. One of our favorite ways to celebrate Spring is with a visit to the Berkeley Rose Garden in mid May.
Whether you live in the Bay Area, you’re an MLB fan, or both, you know which California team has won eight World Series titles and 23 National League pennants: the San Francisco Giants. Perhaps you even have a favorite retired-number ball player, such as Monte Irving, Willie Mays, or Bill Terry. No matter which Giants player most warms your heart, sport the black, orange, and cream, and don’t miss FanFest!
Known internationally as both amazing entertainers and ambassadors of goodwill, The Harlem Globetrotters are one of the oldest and most recognizable franchises in sports history. Their unique nicknames, ball handling wizardry, amazing trick shots, and comedic stunts combined with community service programs and exemplary sportsmanship have provided smiles to millions of fans around the world for decades. The famous team will bring their unrivaled family show to Oracle Arena in Oakland this January during their 90th Anniversary World Tour.
It’s baseball season again in the Bay Area. That means hot dogs, popcorn and beer. There will be the seventh inning stretch and singing “Take me out to the ballgame.” The Bay Area has two teams for people to watch.
Golden State lost their home court advantage in Game 2 and Game 3 but regained it in Game 4, an impressive team effort. The Dubs overcame a career-high 28 points from the Cleveland Cavalier’s Timofey Mozgov while the Golden State Warrior’s baby faced assassin found his groove with 22 points. During the first three games the Cavalier’s Lebron James played like an all-time NBA great, but during the fourth game it became clear that the Cavaliers can’t win unless their MVP is stealing the show.
A party bus is perhaps the ultimate vehicle for concert transportation. With plenty of room, wet bars, mood lighting, stripper poles and many other amenities, there is no better way to get to and from a concert with friends and family. At least that’s what 38 Californians thought when they rented a party bus for a recent Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias concert at the Staples Center. They reserved The Super Sexy Party Bus from a local party bus provider to transport them from Thousand Oaks to downtown Los Angeles and home again so they could all concentrate on having a good time.
"They had what looked like the best party bus on the market," said passenger Bruce Barrios. "It looked like a night club on wheels."
"It had four great neon light-up stripper poles and a disco ball," said passenger Suzie Hayden.
The evening of fun, music and merriment got off to an inauspicious beginning, however, when the party bus arrived two hours late. Making matters worse, the air conditioning on the party bus was not working, and it wasn’t long before the guests were quite uncomfortable in the sweltering heat.
"I thought I was going to die," said passenger Marco Jimenez.
The lateness of the arrival of their party bus also caused the guests to miss a big chunk of the concert, which was already well underway when they arrived at the Staples Center. After the concert, the guests were outraged when they gathered at the predetermined pickup point only to find that their party bus was gone, along with the belongings they had left on board. Their calls to the party bus provider went unanswered, and the group ended up having to take cabs to get back home.
The guests complained to the Public Utilities Commission, which oversees all for-hire ground transportation companies in California and learned that, while the bus and the limousine service that owns the party bus are in compliance with CPUC regulations, the limo service has an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau. That’s not very sexy.
If you’re looking for an ethical, affordable and professional San Francisco party bus provider that is also in full compliance with CPUC regulations but takes much better care of its guests, call us at NLS Limo today at 800-339-8936. We have become the Bay Area’s premier limousine and party bus provider by providing super-clean and comfortable luxury vehicles for our guests at the best rates in the area. Add in our superb customer service, and you and your guests are guaranteed to have a wonderful time!

Baseball fans in the Bay Area are hoping for another great season, and the way things are shaping up on both sides of the Bay, the playoffs are a very real possibility. There’s a lot of baseball left to be played, but both the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s are off to a fine start. If they continue at their current torrid pace, they will be poised for the postseason. If you want to make a late season or postseason visit to the ballpark extra special, why not rent a San Francisco limousine or party bus to take you and your crew to and from the game in style?
Admit it, each time you go to the ballpark, you’re somewhat envious of the people being dropped off right at the gate by their limousine or party bus. These and other luxury vehicles attract attention wherever they go, and being dropped off in a limo a few steps from AT&T Park or Oakland-Alameda County Stadium has always been a pleasant daydream for most baseball fans. The good news is that daydream is a lot more affordable than you think it is, and no one has more luxury ground transportation options that NLS Limo!
We recommend the following limos and party buses for comfort and convenience on the way to and from the ballpark:
- 10 Passenger Stretch Limousines
- 14 Passenger Hot Tub Limousines
- 16 Passenger Hummer Limousines
- 16 Passenger Expedition SUV Limousines
- 22 Passenger Excursion SUV Limousines
- 12 Passenger Executive Limo Buses
- 18 Passenger Limo Vans
- 20 Passenger Party Buses
- 32 Passenger Limousine Buses
- 20 Passenger VIP Bus with Wheelchair Lift
- 47 Passenger VIP Luxury Coaches
Those are only a few of the many luxury options for you and your friends and family members to choose from when considering transportation to the games. They are roomy, very comfortable and affordable, and they offer luxury amenities to make your experience fun and memorable.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is working with our country’s National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) to improve school bus safety for Dubai’s schoolchildren. These two transportation organizations have created a formal partnership to share information and develop safety measures and are planning a joint school transportation summit next year in Dubai. Here at NLS Limo, we have been following developments in this partnership, as we also transport schoolchildren. Our Bay Area school pupil activity buses transport kids from all over the area on field trips, overnight learning excursions and other educational expeditions. Our buses also transport children on trips to baseball games, amusement parks and other fun destinations because kids learn best when teachers and administrators strike the right balance between work and play!
Alexandra Robinson is the NAPT President and Executive Director for Pupil Transportation of the New York City Department of Education. She and other administrators are excited about the future of this collaborative effort.
"NAPT is privileged to join with the Emirate of Dubai in the interest of helping them and others in their region learn from our experiences operating yellow school buses," she said in a recent statement.
Her counterpart, Mr. Essa Al Dosseri, CEO of the Public Transport Agency at RTA, also stated his enthusiasm for the partnership.
"This agreement is the result of many years of working informally with NAPT. Together, we are taking the next step to bring the best practices in school transportation to individuals, businesses, governments and related school transportation service providers in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) as well as other countries. The conference we are planning will be a unique learning experience for transportation professionals around the world."
At NLS Limo, the safety of our guests is and always has been our first priority, and that is especially true about our youngest guests riding in our San Francisco school pupil activity buses. We outfit each bus with the latest in safety equipment and allow only our most experienced drivers to take these assignments. If you are a teacher or school administrator who is planning a trip for your schoolchildren soon and you need safe and reliable bus transportation, please contact us today at NLS Limo at 800-339-8936 for information.
