Airport Express Limousine’s elite fleet of town cars, limos, and Ford Excursion stretch limos cruises all across the Chicagoland area and beyond, from downtown to South Bend. Outfitted with classy leather seats, personal TVs, and fully stocked bars, each of Airport Express Limousine’s rides transforms mundane airport trips into highway parties more extravagant than when the Times Square ball dropped from an overpass. Though Airport Express encourages passengers to make appointments for airport pickups in advance, every terminal has a courtesy phone for last-minute rides.
City Cycle Chicago Inc's staff members combine the duties of instructors with the gung-ho nature of enthusiasts; it's their stated goal to spread motorcycle awareness, safety, and love throughout the City of Chicago. They even help riders earn their licenses, going so far as to show up with a vehicle on the day of the DMV test to provide coaching and support. But renting out their fleet of scooters for recreational riding is what gets their operation the most kudos. They tout the rentals as the "best way to see the Windy City," a claim they live up to by delivering the scooter to your front door and by noting that it's easy to park one just about anywhere, such as between two cars or right inside the mayor's office.
Easy Airport Parking offers safe haven to cars whose owners are bound for Indianapolis International Airport. Drivers silence engines in a valet lane and exchange keys or ignition-lodged screwdrivers for a claim check, relinquishing vehicles to employees who steer them into a standard or oversize spot. They then hop aboard a shuttle bus that drops off at terminals within 5 or 10 minutes. Since the buses run 24 hours a day, jet setters can call for a pickup as soon as they return, no matter the hour. The parking lot is also open all day and night, with security fences, cameras, and guards watching over roadsters and keeping patrons' personal chauffeurs from escaping. For an additional fee, cars can freshen up with a wash.
Every two years, the United States and Europe deploy an army of their 12 best professional golfers to do battle in a team match-play format at a venue that alternates between the two sides of the Atlantic. For the 2012 Ryder Cup event, Team USA captain Davis Love III and Team Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabal will lead their teams into an intercontinental duel on the links at Medinah Country Club in Illinois. Perennial stalwarts Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, as well as 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson, will headline the United States team as they try to avenge a 2010 loss to the Europeans at Celtic Manor Resort. Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, current world number one, leads a European team attempting to build upon a recent streak that has seen them win four out of the last five Ryder Cup events and successfully complete five out of their last six human pyramids.
Chicago Limo Net ushers its office-, nightlife-, and airport-bound clientele about the Chicago area in a fleet of luxurious, custom buses and limousines. Twenty-four-passenger party buses bedecked in low-level lighting, leather couches, dancing poles, and mirror-laden roofs bestow a nightclub-like feel minus the acute stares of gargantuan doormen. Smaller 6- and 10-passenger limousines present many of the same creature comforts in a more aerodynamic package for airport or around-town trips. Each party conveyance is piloted by a professional chauffeur with extensive knowledge of downtown Chicago, who will gladly take the fastest or most scenic route and can offer unique insights into the city, such as how to differentiate between the Willis Tower and the pier's ferris wheel.
Park Ride & Fly USA's car caretakers protect vacationing cars within 24-hour, well-lit parking lots near airports in more than 30 states. After dropping off their automobiles, customers can transport themselves and their luggage to the airport aboard one of the company’s complimentary shuttles or human-size hamster balls. While away, patrons rest easy knowing that their steel steeds are safe within fenced lots that are monitored by 24-hour surveillance. At many locations, shuttles also swing by the terminal to pick up returning travelers and reunite them with their respective vehicles, which are first freed of cloud-based artillery, including snow or recently rained molasses.
