By collaborating with other businesses, Park Right seized an opportunity to facilitate seamless transportation. At least one manager and a uniformed, clean-shaven crew supervise each lot, many of which partner with Envirowash to offer detailing packages for vehicles in their care. Chauffeurs shuttle drivers in their own cars or in SUVs, sedans, or limos owned by Park Right's sister company, and point those in need of a rental to the Zipcar fleets available at each garage. As consultants, the team shares management expertise with builders, developers, and method actors cast as traffic barrels.
It?s an all too familiar, frustrating feeling?circling filled up parking garages in your car, waiting and hoping for someone to pull out before you run out of gas, overheat, or simply give up. ParkNow?s service neatly sidesteps the headache, streamlining the process of finding guaranteed availability by letting users book spots before leaving the house. Payment is conveniently handled through the app after the parking event and without any hassle at the garage. Parking garages can be selected not only by location, but also by additional services offered, such as car washes, battery charges, or oil checks. Beyond the convenience, the service also aims to assist the environment by reducing the fuel consumption and traffic congestion accumulated by idling drivers.
Your day begins, a la James Bond, in the elegant confines of Classic Car Club Manhattan at 9 a.m. with coffee and a briefing on each car. Once you're fully educated on what makes the Nissan GT-R, F430 Ferrari, Lamborghini Gallardo, Shelby Cobra, and others so darn cool, you'll get to tear up some road matter with each of them, with lunch served along the way. You'll be back at Classic Car Club by 5 p.m., just in time for a cocktail hour, during which you may chat with your fellow drivers about which ride was the sweetest. Or you can just sit and make dazed vroom-vroom noises for the entire hour. Classic Car Club Manhattan is used to that.
Manhattan Helicopters' staff zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.
URentAuto.com makes it easy for drivers to customize their car rental. With vehicles available in three sizes, URentAuto hands over the keys in daily, weekly, and monthly increments. Renters are then free to take their vehicles wherever they like.
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.
