In previous blog posts, we’ve briefly mentioned the extensive fleet that we have at our disposal here at Merlo’s Charters. This blog post in particular will give you a better idea of the ground transportation options that we can offer to ensure your next event exceeds your expectations.


No event or special occasion is the same. That’s why, at Merlo’s, we have no one-size-fits-all mentality when it comes to deciding which charter bus best fits your needs. Check out our fleet below.

Charter Bus Service Fleet

  1. Towncar: Three Passengers – The popular four-door luxury Sedan continues to be popular for transportation with airport transfers, weddings pickup, graduation, prom pickup, nights out on the town, birthday parties, and more. These particular towncars feature an extended body, leather interior, as well as eight inches of extra legroom for added comfort. Each Sedan is equipped with reading lights, rear vanity mirrors, and GPS.
  2. SUV: Six Passengers – In need of company transportation or reliable transportation for your upcoming casino group? The Executive Van is your answer. Rather than shove everyone into uncomfortable buses, let your passengers ride in style and comfort with ease. The van is equipped with leather seating, TV/DVD player, aisle seating, bus entry doors, as well as a spacious luggage area.
  3. Shuttle Bus: 24 Passengers – Take the hassle out of employee transfers, airport transfers, and parking lot to office shuttle transportation with our 24-passenger shuttle bus. Each one features seatbelts for safety and is designed to move groups efficiently.
  4. Mini Bus: 29 Passengers – Merlo’s mini charter buses have been a hit with passengers since we got started in 1999. Each includes a CD player, TV with DVD player, PA system, high-back reclining seats, overhead luggage compartments, and three-point seatbelts. When Houston residents need transportation for business, group tours, trips to Galveston, casino trips, and other meetings, they choose Merlo’s mini bus. Note that we also have a limited number of minibuses that seat 32 passengers.
  5. Motor Coach: 56 Passengers – It can be a nightmare trying to find the best charter bus service to accommodate more than 50 people. It’s why our motor coach makes an easy choice. Each luxury coach features five TVs, DVD players, restroom, plus seating for large groups with luggage. If your group has an upcoming trip to Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, or another nearby major city, our team recommends the motor coach.

Community Impact

As a family-owned and -operated company, we are committed to being an integral part of the community in a variety of ways. For example, several of our associates walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. We’re also proud to have donated services for The Make a Wish Foundation, as well as Angel Flight.

We’re also continuously looking for ways to keep Houston “green.” In addition to making the streets less congested and our air less polluted, we’re also doing what we can to make sure our fleet is environmentally responsible. We are proud that our fleet of livery vehicles are E-85 compatible, while many of our diesel vehicles burn cleaner than unleaded alternatives of other companies.
