After purchasing their first limo—a 1965 Cadillac Factory Formal—in 1978, the dedicated valets, chauffeurs, and technicians at Westwind began to build a fleet of stretch Jeeps, shuttles, and buses. Today, their shiny stretch vehicles tote passengers to and from the airport while customers’ cars rest safely in the comfort of a garage that’s heated to reduce potential cold-weather car troubles or strange sniffling noises from the engine. While lodging at Westwind, vehicles may be treated to life-extending maintenance or beautifying detail treatments as skilled technicians switch out old motor oil or buff and polish paint jobs. The garage’s luxurious lineup of shuttles, vans, and limos transports guests in style, whether carrying commuters to the airport in a limo or celebrating a wedding with a 14-passenger stretch SUV.
A. Limousine Associates' fleet of more than 40 four-wheelers offers the luxury of ancient Roman sedan chairs at the speed of contemporary traffic. A stylish stable of vehicles affords voyagers the opportunity to take a three-hour jaunt in a 10-passenger stretch limousine (from $230), a six-hour cruise in a limousine bus (from $550), or an eternity with the one you love (wedding packages are also available). A. Limousine escorts aerial adventurers to the Greater Cincinnati Airport ($48 and up), as well as other nearby flight fields including those in Columbus, Indianapolis, Dayton, Lexington, and Louisville. Daytrippers may languidly lounge upon plush leather seats while traveling to Churchill Downs or relax en route to boisterous bachelor or bachelorette bonanzas.
Motortoys’ fleet features fun extras such as colorful custom lighting, barware, and high-end audio systems. Capacities range from 4 people for a Rolls-Royce or a Lincoln Town Car to 25 for party buses with on-board restrooms. The drivers are employees, not independent contractors, and their service won The Knot’s Best of Weddings award in 2011. Motortoys also partners with area businesses to offer its passengers discounts on meals, waived cover charges, and lifetime supplies of velvet rope.
The chauffeurs helming the Rollin With The Jones' charter vans and buses whisk passengers off to myriad destinations both in and out of state, from local casinos to major cities. Travelers board their chariots at an agreed-upon public destination, and then relax and enjoy the flat-rate trip, never having worry about incurring extra charges for encouraging every passing trucker to honk. Popular trips include the annual excursions to the Macy's Music Festival and the Detroit Ribs R&B Jazz Fest, as well as other individual trips added throughout the year.
