San Francisco Limo Service
Prom limo rentals, once a very rare sight and luxury only available to the wealthy, are now increasingly common on weekend evenings in late spring all across the country. The source of the surging popularity in prom limousines is coming from an unlikely source – the parents of those attending the proms. Prom limos have always been a much sought-after mode of prom transportation, but, these days, limousine services are reporting that it is the parents making the reservations instead of their children.
We often find that people are so conditioned to equate limousines and party buses with rock stars, movie stars, professional athletes, captains of industry and other well-to-do individuals that they think renting a Bay Area limo or party bus is unaffordable. The good news is that the opposite is true. The San Francisco limousine industry is quite competitive, and Bay Area limousine services like us have to constantly strive to keep costs as low as possible without sacrificing the quality of the services we provide. This competition works in your favor. If it’s been a while since you checked our rates or you think that you can’t afford a limo or party bus for your next special event, think again! Here are some samples of just how reasonable and affordable our rates are:
This is the type of limousine story everyone can understand and endorse. A 14-year-old Michigan boy who has spent the last year undergoing chemotherapy for a rare type of cancer recently received a shopping spree and limousine ride courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan. Joey Bouffard is fighting a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing’s sarcoma, which affects young children and teenagers. Joey was nominated for the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s limo ride and shopping spree by his doctors at the University of Michigan.
World business and political leaders wanting the newest and latest in comfort and security presented Maybach engineers with a challenge. The challenge was to build a luxury limousine befitting a head of state that also includes security features often found in armored personnel carriers. It appears that Maybach’s engineers were up to the task as the Maybach Guard made its debut near company headquarters in Sindelfingen, Germany.
A report out of Kentucky provides the kind of news we all could use more of and more often. An elderly resident of Magnolia Village Care and Rehabilitation Center in Bowling Green had a wish to ride in a limo, receive a full body treatment at a day spa, go out for lunch, do some shopping and ride back to her home in the assisted living facility. Some employees at SunBridge Healthcare, a 60-bed nursing center that cares for adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, granted 85-year-old Gladys Revels’ wish recently and made her day.
A 13-year-old liver transplant recipient celebrated her birthday in a very special way recently by riding in a pink limousine with close friends and family members. Eden Darcy was born with biliary artesia, a condition in which the liver’s bile ducts are blocked, impairing the function of the liver. The young lady and her family have struggled with the disease since her diagnosis five weeks after she was born. She received a new liver in August 2005, but complications made the following weeks, months and years very difficult. Her body rejected the transplanted liver three times, requiring constant monitoring and a regimen of anti-rejection medication. In addition, she has experienced many side effects from the medication.
When most visitors to San Francisco think about The Marina, sometimes called the Marina District, they think of the Presidio, which borders this neighborhood to the west. However, when Bay Area residents think about The Marina, they think of the neighborhood’s incredible dining options, the day spas that pamper and please, the spectacular sightlines on the city’s waterfront, the trendy and chic shops and the easy rhythm of life here.

A California lawmaker has proposed legislation that will close a loophole in an existing law and will make limousine companies responsible for underage drinking that goes on in their vehicles. Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, recently proposed Assembly Bill 45, also known as the Brett Studebaker Law, to be passed in the California state legislature. If passed, the law will require California limousine services, party bus operators and other group transportation companies classified as “carriers” to check the identification of all passengers and require anyone under 21 to sign an agreement not to drink while riding in the vehicle. Current state laws require chauffeurs to sign such an agreement before transporting passengers. If an underage passenger violates the terms of the agreement, the driver must terminate the contract and return all passengers to the point of origin.
