While it is easy to spot some of Kingdom Chauffeured Limousine Services' fleet of vehicles—such as a stretch limo transporting a bridal party or headed on a tour of wine country—some of their most impressive cars fit in any old parking space. The drivers spend most of their days catering to regular business travelers, ferrying them around town in the less elongated, yet more pronounced, style of a Mercedes Benz S550, Cadillac Escalade ESV, or Rolls Royce Phantom.
Most of the vehicles have tinted privacy glass for passengers, as well as pristinely maintained leather seats. Additionally, the stretch limousines boast privacy dividers, a premium sound system, and room for up to ten passengers or one extremely happy passenger and all of the stuffed animals he won at the carnival.
Aside from a coat of green paint on the outside, Capitol City Crawler’s fleet of eco-friendly buses don’t look like all that different from other buses on the road. Look inside, though, and you’ll find what is essentially a club on wheels. There’s seating for 24 passengers, and the seats are arranged against the walls so there’s plenty of room for dancing, too. Each bus comes equipped with a bar, a thumping sound system, LED lighting, and an inflatable doorman. The buses are popular for bachelor and bachelorette parties, but they’re also suitable for kids’ birthday parties, brewery tours, and wine-tasting tours in the Hill Country.
The prompt and courteous chauffeurs at Austin Capital Limousine deliver passengers safely to destinations throughout the city. They scoop up their passengers in a six-passenger Chevy Suburban, a nine-passenger Lincoln stretch limo, or a four-passenger Lincoln sedan from the company fleet, and then safely negotiate all traffic and navigate around all leaves. Though the company makes its transportation services available for just about any need, some popular destinations include bachelor parties, proms, and the airport.
Getting behind the wheel of a Sterling Sedans and Limousines vehicle requires more than just a driver’s license, resumé, and pair of white chauffeur gloves. Each and every one of the company’s drivers must first pass a screening test, lending passengers confidence that they are in the hands of a trustworthy navigator. These insured drivers don professional attire as they steer luxury limousines, sedans, and SUVs to scheduled pickup locations across Austin. They ferry passengers to and from the airport, cart teenagers to and from school dances, customize dinner and theater nights out, or simply transport partiers around town to celebrate birthdays or the loss of all their baby teeth.
