Obama Presidential Motorcade Pays London Congestion Charge Like Everyone Else

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on June 7, 2011

Yet another presidential limousine story in the news this month! The city of London, England took a radical step some years ago to combat traffic congestion that paralyzed traffic throughout the city: it began imposing a congestion charge on all vehicles entering the city, and the plan has mostly worked. Traffic in the city is down overall, and people living there can get around with much greater ease since the plan was enacted. As President Obama found out recently, no one is exempt from paying the charge to enter the city, not even presidential motorcades. Each limousine in the President’s fleet was ordered to pay the charge, but administration officials refused, saying that diplomats should be excused from paying the charges.

San Francisco Neighborhood Guide: Pacific Heights

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on February 20, 2011

If the name Pacific Heights evokes mental images in your head of an upscale, privileged San Francisco neighborhood with grand old homes, incredible views and old money, your assumptions are absolutely right. The first generation or two of Pacific Heights residents were captains of industry, successful retailers, politicians and other moneyed, well-to-do types at the top of the social order. Suffice it to say that Pacific Heights was the place to live in San Francisco if you had the means. This neighborhood provides some of the city’s best views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay, and it is a must-visit destination for most of our city’s millions of visitors each year. This neighborhood was one of the first to have service from our city’s famous cable cars, and they continue to transport San Franciscans to this day.

Car and Limo Rentals Becoming Big Business in Beijing

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on February 10, 2011

Hiring a car to take people from one place to another in Beijing is becoming a very big business as traffic restrictions make it increasingly difficult for residents to own and drive cars. City officials have adopted these restrictions as part of a concerted effort to reduce the city’s serious traffic problems. The number of privately owned cars on Beijing’s streets has more than doubled in the last five years, creating nightmarish traffic jams and horrible air pollution problems. Taking drastic measures, Beijing officials have issued a month-long moratorium on buying cars, and they plan to issue license plates through a lottery system after the ban has expired.

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on January 5, 2011

A story out of Iowa caught our eye recently. A nine-year-old Southeast Iowa girl named Presley Poor, who has created and administrated fundraisers for local kids and families living in a local emergency shelter, has put her next plan in motion. She’s going to raise funds to rent a limousine and take the kids staying at a local shelter for a day at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. Ms Poor’s most recent fundraising success involved sponsoring a pizza party for 40 kids staying with their mothers at Lydia House, an emergency shelter in Omaha. Through sheer force of will and an uncommonly generous spirit, she singlehandedly raised $300 to make this pizza party happen.

Rent a Limo With Friends and Co-Workers This Holiday Party Season for Safe, Affordable Fun

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on November 8, 2010

While friends, families and employers are busy planning their upcoming holiday parties, you can do some planning of your own by renting a San Francisco limo to get you and yours from one party to the next.

San Francisco Neighborhood Guide: Deco Ghetto

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on October 20, 2010

If the name “Deco Ghetto” seems more off-putting than enticing, then this funky, weird and eclectic San Francisco neighborhood may surprise you. Deco Ghetto, also called the Hub and Mid-Market depending on your demographic and how long you’ve lived in San Francisco, is a part of the city very much in transition. What were once empty storefronts are now trendy cafes, bars, coffee shops and trendy shops selling all sorts of things. The neighborhood derives its name from the profusion of furniture stores in the area selling, you guessed it, Art Deco furniture. Drawn to the area by cheap rents and a new crop of homeowners seeking nouveau home furnishings without the nouveau sticker shock, furniture retailers here have thrived, and the new name evolved with the neighborhood.
