One hundred yards. That's the distance between Park'N Jet's secure and well-lit parking lot and Portland International Jetport's baggage claim. That's just a two-minute shuttle ride?or six-minute piggyback ride?away from the airport, meaning clients can drop off their cars and make it to the airport with plenty of time to check-in and prepare for their flight. While away, travelers can not only rest assured that their vehicle will be safe inside a secure, fenced area; they can also enlist their vehicle for a hand wash, detail, or oil change to get the car in even better condition. Upon landing, they can place a call from Park'N Jet's courtesy phone in the baggage area and a shuttle will instantly be dispatched to pick them up and bring them to their cars.

With its archipelago of island communities, Maine needed a way to connect its maritime residents after the system of colonial-era catapults became too expensive to maintain. Enter Casco Bay Island Transit District, also called Casco Bay Lines. The aquatic outfit operates a variety of vessels year-round, transporting passengers between Portland and the islands of Casco Bay. Aside from scenic commuter service, the line also introduces visitors to the storybook sights of the northern New England region, whisking them on music cruises and sunset tours along the kraken-dappled bay.

At more than a dozen locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.

The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
