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.
Ace Limos has facilitated comfortable and luxurious transportation around the Austin area for more than 10 years. The drivers are all background checked and tested semi-annually. The fleet—super-stretch Town Car limos with chrome on the outside and complete entertainment systems on the inside, along with polished, jet-black Mercedes with surround sound and extra leg- or stilt-room—is a veritable showroom of luxury vehicles. Put together, the opportunities are plenty for passengers to relax or party as they see fit while being chauffeured to weddings, out-of-town tours, business meetings, and airports.
Gliding Revolution makes it easy for visitors to explore the storied capital of the Lone Star State. Their tour guides pair patrons with easy-to-navigate Segways, orientating them to the apparatus’s settings and ticklish spots before leading them on any number of scenic jaunts. The Early Bird Special tour introduces riders to the city’s sites before rush hour, while the Capitol Pavement tour grants participants insider knowledge on Austin’s history with stops at the State Capital and Congress Avenue.
Once upon a time, Taylor Perkins and Michael "Stix" Tashnick were just childhood friends, long-time Austinites who each valued hard work and hard-earned adventures. These shared interests eventually led them to start Vintage Innovations, a transportation rental and tour company dedicated to facilitating rambles upon the open road. Rental clients chart a course aboard a vehicle from the company's vintage fleet, which includes shiny Airstream trailers, old-timey pick-ups, and band-ready tour busses once frequented by John Denver and the Willie Nelson Family Band.
On tours, professional drivers take over behind the wheel, ferrying clients to destinations including the city's best breweries, rowdiest honky-tonks, and picturesque regional wineries. They're also available for pick-up duty, adding a touch of excitement to bachelor or bachelorette parties, or simply delivering guests to area music and culture festivals with an extra shot of style.
Members of car2go enjoy the freedom of transportation that comes with owning a car without the worries of keeping up its maintenance or discovering that it’s a robot in disguise. Participants can reserve a car ahead of time through the company’s website or snag an unreserved vehicle by swiping their membership card past the windshield to unlock it and punching in a PIN to start it up. All fuel, insurance, parking, and maintenance costs are included with each rental, allowing patrons hassle-free travel as they explore downtown or give their pet goldfish a tour of the suburbs. After zipping around town, members park in an open car2go spot and walk away, letting a team of cleaners and technicians take care of the rest.
