You can find cafes where you hang out with cats, download an app to choose an outfit from your closet for the day, and even head to a smash room for fun anger management therapy. Imagine what you could do if you took all that clever business acumen and creativity and used it on a bus!

You might be surprised to learn that finding an affordable, high-quality bus for sale isn’t too difficult if you know where to look. Here are a few unique ideas for turning that investment into a profit with an inspired bus-based business!

A Mobile Hotel

There’s a good chance you’re thinking, why would anyone want to pay to sleep on a bus? Believe it or not, some of these unconventional accommodations are already popping up in a few places!

Tourists love unique lodging options that cost less than the average hotel—hostels, Airbnb’s, and couch-surfing websites are just a few examples.

A fun bus hotel is perfect for festivals and concerts that happen over the course of several days. It can also serve as a homeless shelter for individuals needing to escape the elements or just looking for a comfy place to sleep.

Food Truck

The food truck is a popular trend that has succeeded in many venues. There will never be a shortage in demand for quality food, and these swanky businesses offer that with a hint of style.

A food truck is another great option for a festival or for food events that many cities hold when the weather is nice. You can even convert a larger bus into a functional restaurant space with indoor and outdoor seating!

Bus Bar

This concept is similar to a food truck with a little more zest! A bus bar can be a unique place to socialize and let loose in a new and fun way. Offer an indoor seating area or deck out your bus with an awesome sound system for dancing.

Drive passengers around the city and make your bar experience an entire adventure of its own! Or tweak a bus bar into a party bus for special events and more business opportunities.

A Tour Bus

Take visitors of your city on a memorable excursion with a lively tour bus business! Show them the sights and hire a tour guide so they have not just a fun experience but an educational one too.

Or make it a hop-on/hop-off bus and market your vehicle as a luxurious and reliable way to explore the city on your own. Offering day trip transportation is another great way to bring in revenue with your bus.

Once you have the perfect business idea, you’ll need the perfect bus to make it happen! At Northwest Bus Sales, we have various new and used buses for sale to fit your specific needs and budget.
