San Francisco Limousine Service | San Francisco Travel Blog
Here in the Bay Area, summertime is on the cool side close to the ocean but plenty hot just a few miles inland. Our San Francisco party buses are similar in that they are plenty hot to look at and be seen in but delightfully cool and comfortable on the inside with climate control, smokin’ sound systems, flat-screen TVs, wet bars and other luxury amenities. If those plush amenities aren’t enough to get your creative juices flowing and rent one of our limos for an outing with friends and family, here are the top five reasons to rent our Bay Area limos and party buses this summer:
An eighth-grader at Horn Lake Middle School in Memphis, Tennessee out-read, out-learned and now will get to out-relax more than 300 of her classmates for winning her school’s Horn Lake Library Teen Limo contest. Jackie Hernandez earned her limo ride by completing her library’s Summer Reading Program, and she, as well as five of her friends, will arrive to the first day of school this fall in her limousine. The young lady is quite excited by her award and has no plans to stop reading even though the contest is over.
We know that it’s a tough business climate out there since we’re business owners ourselves, but we also know that it is important to reward hardworking employees from time to time. If your employees are doing a great job and it has been a while since you rewarded their efforts with something fun, rent one of our Bay Area limo buses for a day of rest and relaxation! No matter where they want to go, our San Francisco limo buses are the ultimate in luxury group transportation. They offer a wide range of luxury amenities, such as the following:
A chauffer of an illegal limo in Brooklyn, New York gave a Limousine Commission inspector the ride of his life recently after getting caught in an illegal limo sting operation. Shortly after hailing an illegal fare, limo driver Abdourahamane Barry, 37, learned that his fare was actually an undercover inspector for New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission. The inspector had just negotiated a $15 fare for a relatively short trip and climbed into the back of the limo when he announced the bust and told his driver he was going to get a ticket. Instead of accepting the fine, the chauffeur tried to speed away from the TLC inspector who had been standing with a group of other inspectors as part of their sting operation.
A 15-year-old California girl who has struggled with life-threatening health problems for the last three years got a limo ride and a quinceañera she and her family will never forget thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Berenice Jasso is a young lady from Escalon, California and the daughter of farm workers who thought they might lose their daughter due to kidney problems that confounded doctors. Shortly before she turned 14, her parents learned that Berenice’s kidneys were failing, and doctors could not identify the reason. Within a year of the diagnosis, both of her kidneys were removed, and Berenice lived for four months with frequent trips to a dialysis clinic to stay alive while they waited for a kidney to become available.
Here’s a story that caught our eye. It may not pertain to luxury vehicles, but, as unapologetic car nuts, we thought it was worthy of mention. We also think it’s worthy of condemnation! Reports out of Nevada claim that search engine giant Google has hired a lobbyist to press Nevada lawmakers to pass two bills currently under review. If passed, they would make Nevada the first place on the planet where driverless cars are legal.
An evening that was supposed to be one of the pinnacles of their high school experience turned into a nightmare for some Georgia teens when the party bus they had rented for prom transportation stranded them. The teens attend Lassiter High School in Etowah, a suburb near Atlanta. One parent was particularly and understandably upset with the no-show party bus driver.
In an unusual move certainly intended to be a warning to illegal limousine operators, the Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA), which is the agency that regulates the limousine industry in the United Kingdom, recently seized, crushed and shredded two luxury limousines. The Ford Excursion SUV limousines were seized from an illegal limousine operator in South Wales because they did not meet VOSA safety regulations and were transporting passengers illegally. The agency that registers, licenses and oversees San Francisco limousines and other limo services in California is the Public Utilities Commission (PUC). While they have not yet taken drastic steps like VOSA to address illegal limo operators, this might give them some ideas.
Now here’s a story worthy of celebration! Legendary luxury automaker Rolls-Royce celebrated the 100th anniversary of their inimitable hood ornament recently by sending 100 Rolls-Royce automobiles of all vintages out into the streets of London. The iconic Spirit of Ecstasy has graced the hoods (bonnets on that side of the Atlantic) of Rolls-Royce motorcars for the last 100 years and is one of the most universally recognized symbols in the world.
Rolls-Royce’s much-anticipated all-electric, battery-powered Phantom EX102 was rolled out for curious onlookers and luxury limo aficionados at the Geneva Motor Show recently, and it created quite a stir. Rolls-Royce says the vehicle costs a few pennies per mile to operate and has zero emissions, a marked change from other limos made by the legendary luxury automaker. Rolls says the new Phantom can be charged via electrical outlet or wirelessly by driving over a unique electric pad that can be installed in owners’ garages.
