About Our Team

Turtle Bus delivers a one-of-a-kind “transpertainment” experience which is customized to enhance your experience. Our liquor license allows you to enjoy both beers and cocktails onboard while you dance the day and night away on our spacious dance floor.

Each Turtle Bus is built with wood floors, a tiki themed inspired interior and custom seating that make riding the Turtle Bus the best way to celebrate in motion.  Be your own DJ while connected to our Bluetooth sound system.  Spacious, fun, and uniquely designed, each bus allows guests to walk around, socialize, and dance while enjoying libations and music.

Everything about the Turtle Bus is a group event. We want to enhance your experience by allowing your entire party to travel together in a unique atmosphere in the Vail Valley, Boulder, and Greater Denver Area.

Rosanna is our family dog. She spends most of her time at home at Shanes’s house but finds her way into all the buses to say hello, catch a frisbee or see what you are eating.

Turtle Bus was the Love Child of our Glorious Leader (GL) and the people of Vail (POV) as a gift to those who desired unexplored entertainment possibilities without the fear of Government Intervention (Lock Up).  We take our mission seriously and bring it to you with our mobile bar, dancing pole and uninterrupted musical festivities. By keeping your party contained within our moving transportation system we hope to elevate your party to the next level. When you look back at this moment of movement you will smile reminiscing of your joy in the journey.
