The Long Island Transit Bus Company delivers daily commuters to their Manhattan-based places of business without the exasperating stop-and-go of rush-hour driving or shoulder-to-shoulder stuffiness of subway cars. On weekdays, car-owning commuters can park their trusty vehicles at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Glen Cove or Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, and the hoofbound can show up to either spot or the bus-stop-only Glen Cove Road location to board buses bound for Wall Street or Midtown at up to eight morning times. Safety-certified drivers possess the coveted HOV endorsement honor, allowing them to zip happily down carpool lanes past the traffic gridlocked on the expressway. Meanwhile, the onboard free WiFi lets in-transit professionals catch up on Oprah’s final season. Luxury buses boast reclining seats, overhead storage, restrooms, and complimentary views into other commuters' cars. At the end of the day, work-weary travelers climb aboard at their pickup point, fleeing the city as early as 4:45 p.m., or catch up on piles of paperwork and grab the last bus home from Wall Street at 6 p.m. or Midtown at 8 p.m.
LubriMan Corp eliminates the driving portion of getting an oil change with mobile, on-site services. Technicians will travel to your home, business, or favorite parking lot and spiff up vehicles of all makes and models in a three-hour window. In the car wash and detailing sessions (which can be bolstered with additional services), auto experts use non-toxic Eco Touch solutions to clean and shine surfaces and windows, tend to carpets and leather, and even show a little love to foot pedals. Oil changes include not only a five-quart swap, but also detailed inspections and fluid top-offs.
The sign in front of Manhasset Hand Wash & Detail Center reads "100% Hand Car Wash," a tip of the cap to the old-fashioned service its technicians provide. From inside a full-service car wash tunnel, they draw on Rain-X products and Rosie the Riveter-levels of elbow grease to administer tiered hand-wash packages each named in tribute to the East Coast, such as the Bay Breeze Wash and Light House Wash. The staff works under the gaze of Elvis Presley and vintage automobiles, thanks to a wall-sized art piece designed like a strip of black-and-white film. As cars receive a hose blast from the past, their owners wait in a modern shop filled with automotive accessories, including a Technicolor forest of air fresheners.
