Rental Rates for California Limousine Companies
Every limousine service in our state is regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), which issues licenses, investigates complaints and levies fines and civil actions against unlicensed companies. The CPUC mandates that limo companies must base their rates on time of use or vehicle mileage. It cannot be both, and limo services are expressly forbidden to charge on a per passenger basis. The only exceptions to the per passenger rule are the following:
• Round trip sightseeing operators
• School bus contractors compensated by the parents of students
Anytime you’re shopping for San Francisco limousine services, or limo services anywhere else in California for that matter, and they try to charge you on a per passengers basis, or they try to ding you for mileage and time, call the CPUC at 800-649-7570 and report them. Then call us at 1-800-339-8936 and receive the respect and no-nonsense treatment that we have made the foundation of our business from the very beginning.
Another interesting item that we came across recently also concerns limo rental rates. A trade publication called Transportation Reviews recently conducted an informal study and found that only one in five California limousine companies puts limo rates on their website. We keep an eye on other Bay Area limo services, but we had overlooked this interesting piece of information. It’s interesting to us because we have posted our rates on our site for a very long time now. If you see the little red banner in the upper right-hand corner of our pages, you can see our rates on many different models in our fleet and photo galleries of them as well.
Along with the rates, you can view a short description of each vehicle’s amenities and click on the thumbnail image of each vehicle for a full gallery of images. If you have any questions about any of our vehicles, you can always call us at 1-800-339-8936. You can also use our fast and easy form to request a free rate quote and ask questions in the field provided if you prefer. We’re not choosy about how you contact us as long as you contact us first whenever you need a San Francisco limousine or other kind of luxury transportation! Call NLS Limo today.
