A man fell out of an unlocked door on a party bus recently and suffered serious injuries while enjoying a Halloween outing with friends. According to the investigation, which is still underway, the man fell from the party bus while it was traveling on Interstate 15 just south of Indian Truck Trail near Lake Elsinore. California Highway Patrol officers say the party bus was traveling in the far right lane when the inebriated passenger fell through the door and landed on the roadway. When he realized that one of his passengers had fallen from the party bus, the chauffeur immediately stopped the bus, called 911 and did what he could to help the injured passenger. The injured man was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment for undisclosed injuries.
Here at NLS Limo, we want all our guests to have a fun, wonderful and very memorable experience, but we take the safety of each of our guests very seriously. We do our best to ensure that guests have fun and are free to celebrate special occasions as long as their actions do not endanger themselves or other guests. If they observe behavior that is reckless or risky, our chauffeurs are trained to issue a stern but polite warning to the guest(s), admonishing them that if they continue the behavior, their party bus experience will be terminated and everyone returned to pick-up locations.
This is a drastic step that we have had to enforce on very few occasions. Still, we won’t hesitate to enforce this rule if we feel that it will prevent the sort of tragedy that happened to this young man recently. Our “tough love” approach to protecting our guests is part of our business philosophy and our sense of responsibility to our clients. If you’re looking for a San Francisco limousine or party bus service for an upcoming special event and prefer to do business with local, ethical businesspeople who put the safety of guests above all other considerations, please give us a call at 1-800-339-8936. We’d love to hear from you, and we love to help our guests enjoy the special moments in their lives! Call us today, and find out why we are the Bay Area’s premier limousine service.
Occasionally, we like to write about custom limos that feature improbable combinations of amenities. In the past, we have talked about limos built from scraps from other limos, a custom limousine made from an airplane fuselage, custom limos with wild color schemes and many other unlikely or remarkable limousines. The custom limousine for this blog post is equally unusual and unlikely: a Mini Cooper limo that features a two-person whirlpool in the back. This custom limo transcends two unlikely limo categories. For one, it’s a limousine made from one of the smallest passenger automobiles in the world. Secondly, it features a whirlpool within a space that is best described as “cozy” for one person, much less two. Still, this custom limo is so odd that we had to write about it as we often have unusual features in some of the San Francisco limousines in our fleet.
We are just entering the favorite part of the year for Bay Area music lovers. The outdoor concert season is officially underway, and whether you’re a fan of Bach, U2, Kid Rock, Jimmy Buffet or all of the above, you’re going to get your live music fix early and often this summer concert season. However, local music aficionados know that attending outdoor concerts in the Bay Area comes at a price: horrible traffic to and from the show that sucks a lot of the fun out of the experience. Fortunately, we have the perfect solutions to this problem! Rent a Bay Area limousine or party bus for concert transportation, and leave the driving to us!

A Chinese automobile manufacturer virtually unknown in the U.S. and Europe is getting ready to make its presence known with the worldwide rollout of its new limousine. Hongqi is nearly ready to roll out its high-end HQE limousine, and it is taking aim at Bentley, Maybach and other luxury limo manufacturers at the very top of the market segment. Hongqi is the luxury division of First Automobile Works based in Changchun, China. The HQE is being compared to the Maybach 62 or Rolls-Royce Phantom limousines in terms of interior spaciousness, comfort and luxury appointments.
When mass transit is out of the question, and you’d rather not deal with the questionable cleanliness and unpredictability of taxicabs, an airport limousine is the best choice. This is particularly true if there are a number of people traveling with you. With so many San Francisco limousine services from which to choose, what is the best way to separate the pros from the shmos? There are a number of things to consider when looking for a San Francisco airport limo such as the following:
For many travelers, a big part of their travel experience is seeing, smelling, tasting and experiencing the same things that the locals see, smell, eat and experience every day. Rather than join the crowds in the touristy areas, they seek out sights and experiences that are off the beaten path and authentic. Travelers who want more than a t-shirt and an overpriced lunch seek out places like the San Francisco neighborhood of Cole Valley. Cole Valley is primarily a residential community within San Francisco. A small town within a world-class city, Cole Valley’s unofficial borders are Stanyan Street and the Sutro Forest on the west, Tank Hill on the south, Clayton Street on the east and Frederick Street on the north.
Renting a San Francisco party van is rather straightforward. Simply call your Bay Area limo company and reserve the party van you want for your bachelor party, sporting event, wedding or other special occasion. If you’ve ever rented a party bus, limousine or other type of luxury transportation before, you probably know that not all Bay Area limousine services have the same approach to customer service. The next time you want to rent a San Francisco party bus, here are some things to look for:
Renting a San Francisco party bus for a special event should be easy and fun, but if you or a friend has rented a party bus or limousine before, you know that not all limousine companies take the same approach to customer service. Horror stories about party buses that show up late or not at all are not uncommon. Nor are first-hand reports of party buses and limos that arrive with evidence of the fun the previous renters enjoyed.
