Lots of mandatory steps stand between a person and a driver's license, from time in the classroom to time on the road. JayJay Driving School guides drivers-in-training through every step of the process. The school's five-hour classroom course and 45-minute driving lessons cover everything from safe driving to parallel parking. Once aspiring licensees are ready, staff members can set them up with a road test at the DMV and even supply a rental car to use during the test. JayJay's other services include six-hour courses on defensive driving techniques that are less suspicious than covering a car in barbed wire.
Commended by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch for “eliminating everything bad about a taxi experience,” Uber dispatches vehicles with a click of a button. After registering online, customers can forego flagging down cabs or hijacking buses and instead summon one of Uber’s sedans via the iPhone or Android app or https://m.uber.com/. Uber deploys rides within 5–10 minutes of the request, and hassle-free online accounts automatically deduct fare, including tip, from the customer’s credit card, thereby eliminating the need to carry cash or learn to count.
Imperial Travels and Limousine Services is much closer to a mom-and-pop business than your typical chauffeur service—at least in origin. It was founded by a father and son, the former a part of the transportation industry for more than three decades. And in terms of service, the limo company runs like a well-oiled machine. Its chauffeurs shuttle passengers to and from airports, weddings, or kindergarten proms in limos, sedans, SUVs, and vans.
EP Limos' fleet of Lincolns, Cadillacs, BMWs, and Mercedes attend to all client travel needs. Short or long, those travels can include a trip to the airport, a meeting, a prom, or a wedding. They also provide security escorts and personal-assistant services. Tours of sites around Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx are available as well. Longer luxury trips can include jaunts to Atlantic City, Mohegan Sun, or Foxwoods Resort Casino.
