ADS Mobile's 20 years in the business have taught the company, now at its new location on Industrial Street, that more is more. Every car that the company's mobile team of techs services receives a wash, a tire dressing, and a rim, glass, and well cleaning?no matter what service the auto came in for. Those services cover a broad range of aesthetic improvements including paint-job touchups to cover minor dings and scrapes and window tinting to help retired coal miners to adjust to life in full sun. Of course, an extensive repertoire of wash and detailing packages dominates the company's menu of services, including more exotic procedures such as the wet-sand treatment, which restores badly damaged paint to a fresh-from-the-showroom gleam.

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.
California is full of scenic wonders, and few people have marveled at them longer than the guides and owners of San Francisco Sightseeing. Founded in 1911, the company provides motorcoach-based tours of the city and surrounding sights, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods, wine country, and Yosemite. Guides ferry people over the miles, giving them hours to wander outside the coach and pre-planned stops; Muir Woods excursions include a leisurely walk through the towering red wood forest, while wine country visits span nine hours of stops and tastings at various vineyards.
The company preserves the sights that make the tours specials, as well, through green practices meant to help sustain the environment at large. They retrofitted all of their motorcoaches with diesel particulate filters that greatly reduce emissions. They also fuel up their vehicles with ultra-low-sulfur diesel, a formula that, according to the EPA, could reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 2.6 million tons a year and make baby animals 10% cuter if adopted nationwide.
An innovative service featured by the likes of CNN, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, Getaround puts you in someone else's driver's seat. Thousands of users with available vehicles list them on the site for nearby renters to browse and borrow through the Getaround mobile app?which can even unlock most vehicles, making impulsive getaways easy. In addition to providing more flexibility and convenience than most standard rental agencies or sharing services, another benefit of Getaround's model is access to a wide variety of exciting rides: luxury cars such as BMWs and Porsches join a loose-knit fleet that also includes Priuses, Teslas, and Smart cars. Full insurance coverage protects both drivers and renters, and round-the-clock roadside assistance provides a dependable safety net in case a car has an acute attack of homesickness mid-trip.
Before the water from Tower Car Wash's car wash sessions can be released into the sewer system, onsite filters pull out the oil, chemicals, and dirty solids in order to protect the environment. This is just one way in which the staff at Tower Car Wash, which has been serving the Bay Area since 1996, protects the world around them. To protect automotive paint jobs, though, they perform every car wash by hand and discourage students from winning bumper stickers at school. The technicians also draw on a massive armory of air fresheners, tire dressing, carpet shampoo, and waxes to protect rides and leave them gleaming. While customers wait for their cars to emerge from wash or detail sessions, they sip hot coffee and slice into crepes and sandwiches at the adjoining cafe.
