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.
AZ Luxury Car Service shuttles clients to their destination on time and in style. Drivers can escort passengers to Napa and Sonoma, allowing them to kick back and enjoy the scenery and tastes of wine country while chauffeurs maneuver the roads. The company also services the San Jose, Oakland, and San Francisco airports. AZ's chauffeurs will actually wait inside the terminal for passengers, before driving them home in comfort, or pick them up and get them to the airport with plenty of time to check in, find their terminal, and steal a few stretching techniques from the runway landing operators.
Rolf Crudupt, the founder of Imperial Chauffeur Services, has more than a decade of limo-driving experience—and he knows that limos are for both celebrities and civilians alike. He and his team offer A-list-quality bodyguard services for high-profile clients, and also draw on their fleet of custom-designed limos and sedans for a variety of other trips. They can helm tours of local wineries and the city, or ferry passengers to the airport with in-vehicle flight tracking, which ensures timeliness more effectively than checking the sky a lot.

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.
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.
