Safeway Transit entertains riders with a fleet of seven custom buses, each coated in a unique color of paint and stocked with upgrades including club lights, powerful speaker systems, and keg holders. Their fleet features both smoke-friendly and smoke-free vehicles, some with LED poles presumably for firefighters that detect unusual billows. The bubblegum-colored Pink Bunny bus features these illuminated support beams in its aisles, as does the Black Pearl—a sleek city bus with black lights, black paint, privacy windows, and room for 40 passengers. In addition to the mobile nightclubs, Safeway Transit also situates passengers in its neon green Night Rider, which features a checkered floor plucked from a retro diner and wood paneling along the ceiling and the base of its seats.
Green Planet Car Wash harnesses energy-conscious technologies to blast a deluge of soapy water at the grilles of unhygienic hatchbacks and slatternly SUVs. The popular Michigan wash package includes a full-service tunnel wash and dry, the application of a surface protectant to shirk the vices of moisture and corrosion, and a spot-free rinse to rid rearview mirrors of vexatious blind spots. After the exterior wash, a skillful team of interior beauticians restores crusty carpets and dashboards to their former freshness with a vacuum-powered makeover. Each wash takes about 15 to 20 minutes, during which time customers can marvel at the biological water-reclamation system, designed to keep trout in the local Vermillon River poison-free and belly-down.

Quality Dent Removal, Inc. susses out damage from each auto body using paintless dent-removal techniques. The process requires precision from its technicians, as they wield metal rods and picks to slowly and carefully push out damaged areas from within the vehicle’s body panel, or apply glue to correct dings from the outside. The crack team uses fluorescent lights to canvas the damaged area and observe any shadows made by the deformation of the dent in order to gently finesse the panel in the correct spot. Customers dropping cars off can say hello to the shop’s aquarium of tropical fish armed with acetylene torches.
