President's Message

Welcome to the month of love. Valentine's has always been a symbol of love and romance. The world we are living seems to become tougher as we move through this pandemic. What we need is more love, more peace and a true spirit of being in this together. The vaccine has arrived and should help the world get on back on track in due time. Until then, we need to help each other as much as we can and care for one another.

In other news, we recently moved our office. Moving gives you great perspective. You can see all the clutter you have accumulated over time. It's a time to purge the clutter. It's a time that you find things that you thought were long lost and a time to realize what has now been misplaced in the moving process. It certainly provides a time to reflect on memories as you pack up each collected momento into boxes. In time, everything will get unpacked into its new place in our new office.

In closing, I hope that your journey into 2021 is going well as we enter the second month of the year. Please remember, we are one of a limited number of luxury ground transportation companies in America certified by SafeCleanRide. We are ready to travel when you are and of course always ready to deliver - Satisfaction in Every Turn™ and, Wherever You Are Traveling, We Are Already There.

We Take COVID-19 Safety Seriously

Passengers are required to wear a face mask or cloth face covering. Vehicle occupants should avoid or limit close contact (within 6 feet) with each other. For sedan or SUV transportation, the passenger being transported shall occupy the right rear passenger seat to place as much distance as possible between the chauffeur and the passenger. The use of larger vehicles such as vans is recommended when feasible to allow greater social (physical) distance between vehicle occupants. Additionally, chauffeurs practice regular hand washing and avoid touching their nose, mouth, or eyes.

The following are guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting vehicles
Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces in the vehicle at the beginning and end of each shift and between transporting passengers. Ensure that cleaning and disinfection procedures are followed consistently and correctly, including the provision of adequate ventilation when disinfectant chemicals such as Lysol are in use. Doors and windows should remain open when cleaning the vehicle. When cleaning and disinfecting, individuals should wear disposable gloves compatible with the products being used as well as any other PPE required according to the product manufacturer’s instructions.
Rubbing Alcohol for Touch Points
Use a solution containing at least 70% alcohol on frequently touched electronic surfaces, such as tablets or touch screens used in the vehicle, remove visible dirt, then disinfect following the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products. If no manufacturer guidance is available, use alcohol-based wipes or sprays containing at least 70% alcohol to disinfect.
Gloves, gowns and other disposable PPE used for cleaning and disinfecting the vehicle should be removed and disposed of after cleaning; wash hands immediately after the removal of gloves and other PPE with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. If a disposable gown was not worn, work uniforms/clothes worn during cleaning and disinfecting should be laundered afterwards using the warmest appropriate water setting and dry items completely. Wash hands after handling laundry.

With the vaccine being rolled out, now is the time to look ahead to ensure you are ready for a post-COVID return to travel. Now is the time for travel managers to review policies, and technologies during the time of immense change.

With weekly and even daily changes in travel restrictions, suggested quarantines, supplier policies, and emerging solutions announced at every turn, it is important to refresh your policies and even create strategies to stay safe while traveling.
