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.
The chauffeurs at Black Car Sedans have established a standard for excellence that's based on three important metrics: safety, service, and speed. They can go ahead and add another "s" word to that trio: style. After all, these guys don't drive just any car that's painted black and wearing a giant cummerbund across its grille. They command a fleet that includes such fine automobiles as a Mercedes-Benz S550, a Maybach 52, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, and a Tesla Model S. These hot rides can often be found outside wedding receptions and swanky nightclubs, but they're also available to transport passengers to airports and other locations across the metro area.
The party planners at Last Night Out LLC work to make the final moments of singledom for grooms- and brides-to-be truly special. They also aim to ease the stresses of bridal-party members in charge of running the show by devising custom bachelor and bachelorette party itineraries. Regardless of the party's location, the specialists take the grunt work out of making arrangements for hotels, clubs, and transportation, planning activities such as spa days and booze cruises anywhere in the country.
Leading more than 30 bike tours across the nation, the cycling enthusiasts at Bike and Roll fuel a passion for healthy, eco-friendly transportation via guided tours and self-guided rides atop rental bikes. Their fleet of two-wheelers stakes a claim to Trek bicycles—the same brand that propelled Lance Armstrong to victory—and other recreation, transportation, road, and children's bikes. Riders can pedal behind a guide during the Ride 'Round Manhattan tour, which circles the Statue of Liberty and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial before cruising along the Harlem River bike path. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles on their own and confer with free maps to conduct a jaunt across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while drinking in the skyline and making Waldo spottings along the river. Bike and Roll also outfits patrons with other specialty transportation, such as in-line skates, segways, and magic carpets programmed to swing past the tops of only historic buildings.:m]]
