Jay, party vans are those large bus-type vans that large groups tend to rent for bachelorette/bachelor or birthday parties. They take you from location to location so no one has to drive. usually drinking and music on the vans. This is weird though because the article seems to imply there were only two people on this bus which is strange--there are usually more people on there than that.
