The uniformed chauffeurs on the payroll of 1 Neht Transport, LLC are second in dapperness only to the polished, well-manicured vehicles they operate. The drivers strive to be both punctual and professional, working to make every business trip, night on the town, or VIP tour of the city’s hot-dog carts run smoothly. The company services New York, New Jersey, and the tri-state area, including its airports. For each scheduled airport pickup and drop-off, a dispatch team monitors flight statuses to accommodate early arrivals or delayed flights.
A New York-based company, Whisk ferries New Yorkers around their beloved city—including rides from LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark airports and between distant boroughs. With its sleek mobile app, customers use a single finger tap to summon rides from drivers licensed by the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission. The app also allows customers to track and get in contact with drivers prior to pickup. Using your smartphone's GPS signal, the service determines your location and immediately dispatches the nearest trained chauffeurs. Whisk's rates generally fall within 10%–15% of a typical taxi fare, and passengers often ride in sleek Lincoln Town Cars, Mercedes-Benz sedans, and palanquins borne by bejeweled elephants.
Jay Leno and Ralph Lauren may each own a lot of cars, but their fleets are nothing compared to the number of vehicles Impark Parking must protect in a single day. The company operates more than 2,000 parking facilities in 34 cities throughout North America, from Atlanta to Baltimore to Winnipeg. That accounts for nearly half a million parking spots in total, a far cry from the single lot that Impark—then known as Imperial Parking—started out with. Today, more than 50 years later, it operates as a fully integrated company with expertise in garage management, carbon neutral practices, and recycling.
