This coach line rents charter buses that can ferry out-of-town guests all around Manhattan, cruising by landmarks and other points of interest. Its smaller buses can accommodate up to fifteen passengers (from $350 for a four-hour block); larger buses can hold as many as 56 (from $475).
FilmCars has an extensive inventory of restored antique and vintage automobiles. For a classic New York look, there are iconic Checker taxicabs (from $450 for three hours), or for vintage-themed nuptials, a 1913 Model T (from $695 for three hours).
Gray Line New York
Gray Line’s 82-person double-decker bus will spirit guests throughout Manhattan and zoned areas in Brooklyn (from $510 per hour, with a two-hour minimum). Smaller groups may prefer a more modest coach that seats up to 55 people (from $660 for four hours). A complimentary tour guide comes with the double-decker.
Ozocar’s fleet of ecoluxe Toyota Priuses ($50 per hour with a driver) are not only quieter than your average yellow cab or town car, but they also use 70 percent less fuel. Wedding parties of four can choose the plush Lexus SUV at $60 per hour. All rentals have a two-hour minimum and mandatory gratuity. Eco-friendly.
Reagle Carriage INC.
Reagle’s Cinderella Glass Pumpkin carriage (from $1,200 for three hours), which is drawn by two white horses, may not be for everyone, but to some brides, it’s a dream come true. For the rest of us, there’s a lower-key Victorian carriage (from $750 with one horse). The company delivers buggies to any spot in the tristate area, but there’s a three-mile limit on where the driver can take couples after that.
Silver Star Limousine
This limo service offers more than 40 vehicles in all passenger ranges, from four original Rolls-Royces ($800 for three hours) to a 35-person Mercedes party bus, which has strobe lighting and a bar ($1,200 for three hours).
WC Transportation Service Group INC.
With a fleet of 25 sleek town cars plus SUVs, this company can shuttle guests to and from all parts of the event. Rates are $50 an hour with a two-hour minimum, plus 20 percent gratuity.
