The chauffeurs at Vayder Transportation rescue passengers from the monotony of commuting by whisking them away on limousine- and helicopter-fueled adventures. Enjoy a ride around town inside a stretch limo ($80/hour), which comes equipped with a professional motorist tucked behind the wheel to ensure guests arrive at their destination in style. Whether you’re planning a date or organizing a pharmacy crawl with seven buddies, Vayder’s comfy eight-passenger limos are a fashionable way to get around without the hassle of having to read road signs. Customers with more grandiose goals can upgrade to packages including a limo and lodge option ($620) or—if riding in a long car isn’t enough luxury by itself—a helicopter journey ($410), which gives up to three wingless humans a 30-minute sky trip in addition to their land-based transportation.

Drink and Drive Intelligently assembles a team of professional designated drivers who keep more than 250 intoxicated drivers off the streets each week. Registered customers can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and a duo of well-mannered chauffeurs will arrive within 30 minutes to ferry both customer and car home. While one driver commandeers the customer's vehicle and follows GPS-aided directions, the other follows closely. Once the customer's car is parked, locked, and read a bedtime story from the Kelley Blue Book, the keys are returned to their owner before the drivers head back to base.

Ride Man Ride's chauffeurs understand that sliding into the backseat of a Jaguar XJ Super V8 for a ride to a business meeting or a night on the town ups the ante on sophistication. That's why they don three-piece suits that echo the luxury car's sleek façade as they slip behind the wheel, prepared to ferry clients around town in the amenity-stacked vehicle. Passengers can decompress in the car’s heated seats and recline to their back's content, or leverage the privacy screen to watch monster-truck-rally marathons on the backseat DVD player without offending the driver. For the digital passenger, laptop tables securely support personal computers to facilitate connection to the car's WiFi or broadcast their own soundtrack through the cabin. A bottle of Fiji water and dual-zone climate control helps passengers to reach the perfect levels of comfort or acclimate their body temperatures to perfectly match those of high kings.
