Wine Road Tours whisks groups big and small throughout the rolling hills of Napa/Sonoma Wine Country and beyond. Thanks to its location in wine country, and to its resident wine educator, the locally owned company informs each tour with an intimate knowledge of the area's wineries and varietals. Backed by that knowledge, Wine Road Tours dispatches a full fleet of lavish rides, including a Mercedes-Benz and a Lincoln luxury stretch limo. Its party buses, meanwhile, fire up festivities on the road with a multimedia-entertainment center and wrap-around leather couches, and its coach bus seats up to 56, enough space to fit a championship-winning peewee football team and its extra supply of self worth.

When it's time to go home, a limo arrives anew to cart travelers to departing flights, leaving plenty of time for airport check-ins and pre-flight pancake-eating competitions.

Members of City Carshare, the company reports on its website, drive 50% less than individual car owners, annually saving more than 20 million pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. This is exactly what the local nonprofit had in mind in 2001 when they opened more than 200 Bay Area lots full of fuel-efficient, alternative-fuel, and electric cars and sleighs pulled by Virginia creeper. These vehicles are the linchpin in their two-fold social commitment to creating healthy urban spaces and strong communities.
The first part of that is relatively straightforward: fewer cars on the road mean less congestion and smog and reduced demand for parking lots that could be transformed into parks that grow into concrete jungles. The company defrays the high monetary costs of car ownership by providing insurance coverage, 24-hour roadside assistance, and all the fuel your vehicle needs to get on the road. To foster a sense of community, they hook members up with a private ride-sharing program and entice them to explore the city via their key fob, which unlocks perks at other local businesses. Their mission is backed by a global network of transportation visionaries in the international CarSharing Association, of which City Carshare is a founding member.
An innovative service featured by the likes of CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, Getaround puts you in someone else's driver's seat. Thousands of users with available vehicles list them on the site for nearby renters to browse and borrow through the Getaround mobile app—which can even unlock most vehicles, making impulsive getaways easy. In addition to providing more flexibility and convenience than most standard rental agencies or sharing services, another benefit of Getaround's model is access to a wide variety of exciting rides: luxury cars such as BMWs and Porsches join a loose-knit fleet that also includes Priuses, Teslas, and Smart cars. Full insurance coverage protects both drivers and renters, and round-the-clock roadside assistance provides a dependable safety net in case a car has an acute attack of homesickness mid-trip.
Even before you climb inside, the GoCar is clearly a car with a personality. The petite, three-wheeled two-seater has a hood that slightly resembles an eager-to-please smiley face, and an open top that seems custom-made for letting the breeze ruffle your hair. Then the real fun begins: built with the company's own software and a compassion for the voiceless robots of America, a talking GPS system guides two-seater GoCars through the city streets of San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon with cheerful, info-rich narration. Second only to having a knowledgeable local jog alongside your minivan, tours zip along at drivers' own pace and accommodate as many pit stops as time allows.
