Whether you’re a returning customer or came to our website for the first time, we want to welcome you to Merlo’s Charters. Since 1999, we’ve been providing reliable ground transportation in Houston and surrounding areas. Merlo’s is now one of the largest ground transportation companies of its kind in Southeast Texas.


A family owned and operated business, Merlo’s took off thanks to its team always maintaining the highest safety standards and owning its own maintenance facility to ensure that customers have the best possible experience. Merlo’s goes the extra mile so that passengers ride in the most reliable charter bus fleet on the road.

The purpose of this blog post is to provide an overview of our services, as well as our fleet.

Airport Shuttle

We’ve established such a pristine reputation through the years that we now work with some of the top airlines to safely and reliably transfer flight crews from the airport to the many area hotels. Merlo’s is happy to provide ground departures and arrival to any point in the Greater Houston area to and from all Houston airports. Should you need executive transportation for large groups or individuals, we have a number of options for professional chauffeured ground transportation services.

Event Transportation

Merlo’s is not your typical charter bus service in that we do more than just get you from point A to point B. When it comes to special event transportation, no other charter bus service comes close to the level of customer satisfaction that Merlo’s provides. We have a complete line of professional, chauffeured ground transportation options available for events such as downtown group outings, bachelor and bachelorette groups, prom group, concerts and sporting events, and so much more.

Employee Shuttling

More and more corporations and business are choosing Merlo’s for their corporate needs. We offer professional shuttle rides via minibuses, standard shuttles, limo buses, motor coaches, SUVs, limousines, and town cars. These particular services are at contract rates.

Dignitary Transportation

Do you have an upcoming event with a VIP? Don’t let just any transportation take on the responsibility. Merlo’s has chauffeured dignitaries from all over the world, including celebrities and well-known business professionals. From CEOs and high-profile guests to diplomats and members of royal families, you can feel confident knowing that Merlo’s will handle your guest(s) with the utmost class and professionalism.

Large Group Shuttling

With Merlo’s, no group is too large. We routinely handle large groups for conventions, church services, dinner outings, meetings on the go, trips to nearby cities, guided group tours, shopping excursions, and much more. Don’t let your group book what often turns into a difficult, uncomfortable bus ride. Even with large groups, Merlo’s ensures that all passengers are comfortable. For example, our air-conditioned fleet of minibus shuttles helps those attending Sunday services arrive comfortably and safely. Most of our vehicles include TVs and DVD players as well, making those long trips more enjoyable.
