Instead of using limos or town cars, which come with extravagant price tags, Uride Idrive's chauffeurs transport travelers in their own cars. After traveling to your home and helping you pack your vehicle with luggage, a chauffeur will safely shuttle you to the airport. The driving services also encompass shorter trips, such as doctor's visits, tailgating parties, or nights out on the town.
Outfitted for a night of entertainment, Phoenix Limousine's luxurious party buses transport groups of up to 24 members during three-hour extravaganzas. Licensed chauffeurs ensure a safe arrival at desired destinations as they captain wheeled festivities from stop to stop. Convoys can choose to get dropped off at prominent junctures, such as concerts or sporting events, and birthday soirees and bachelor parties can glide swiftly to different bars and lauded yard sales. Glossy seating snakes through the bus's interior and weaves gracefully toward the back where a flat-screen TV awaits. Traveling shindigs can funkify gatherings with an arsenal of strobe lights or utilize the iPod connection to infuse parties with dance-worthy grooves and beats for an epic "Wheels on the Bus" rap battle.
During his frequent travels, entrepreneurship professor Bill Guerro noticed both the high cost of airport parking and the congested drop-off area at the local terminal. Noticing a vacant lot on campus, Bill wanted to marry available resources to the situation, and brought his idea to one of his classes. Students crafted a business plan for a discount airport parking service that would also benefit the community by returning profits to the students and campus of the university. Offering short- and long-term service at reasonable rates, Purchase Park 2 Fly remains an extension of the university, and Phil Sanford—one of the students in Bill's initial entrepreneurship class—continues to serve the project as marketing coordinator. Profits help support Purchase College through scholarships and capital enhancements to roadways, facilities, and gold-plated foam fingers.

The Long Island Transit Bus Company delivers daily commuters to their Manhattan-based places of business without the exasperating stop-and-go of rush-hour driving or shoulder-to-shoulder stuffiness of subway cars. On weekdays, car-owning commuters can park their trusty vehicles at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Glen Cove or Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, and the hoofbound can show up to either spot or the bus-stop-only Glen Cove Road location to board buses bound for Wall Street or Midtown at up to eight morning times. Safety-certified drivers possess the coveted HOV endorsement honor, allowing them to zip happily down carpool lanes past the traffic gridlocked on the expressway. Meanwhile, the onboard free WiFi lets in-transit professionals catch up on Oprah’s final season. Luxury buses boast reclining seats, overhead storage, restrooms, and complimentary views into other commuters' cars. At the end of the day, work-weary travelers climb aboard at their pickup point, fleeing the city as early as 4:45 p.m., or catch up on piles of paperwork and grab the last bus home from Wall Street at 6 p.m. or Midtown at 8 p.m.
