Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
With 7Bus, passengers travel between Manhattan and Long Island in comfy and spacious motorcoaches. Rather than battle traffic and trade barbs with GPS systems, riders can decompress in leather seats, plug into a personal power outlet, and tap into the free WiFi to watch videos of kids asking “Are we there yet?” Safety is as much a priority to 7Bus as comfort and promptness. The company trains its drivers on a simulator and uses MobileView camera technology, which allows operations to monitor drivers and thus ensure safe and responsible transit.
