New York City is considered by many to be the capital of the world and with that has come one of the most complex public transit networks in the country. Yet despite the MTA being known world-wide, you’ll find that most New Yorkers still opt to hail a cab or book a limo, why is that?
The Need for Good Transportation.
While hearing about reliable transportation may be nice the real question is what’s the need for it? A good transportation service is vital for keeping the world moving, whether that be through transporting goods or important individuals.
Such was the case for medical professionals during the pandemic, as at the time most public transit services were far too risky to use, and some airlines weren’t even providing service. This lead to many doctors and researchers relying on limo or car services to be able to get them to were they need to go in a safe, clean, hassle-free environment. This even includes doctors who were coming in as far out as Connecticut, and even New Hampshire.
Some medical experts would even have to do multiple conferences in a day, all of which were located at different buildings scattered throughout the city. This is where limo services came in especially useful as hourly charters allowed drivers to stay with doctors for as long as they needed it.
Medical Professionals were essential in making sure we stayed safe, and in turn transportation companies did their part in making sure every care taker was safe and relaxed during such a difficult time. Black car services began to step up their safety regulations, inspecting vehicles for more than just technical issues but also making sure their interiors met every healthcare professionals needs.
Drivers were out through numerous, new, safety regulations and rigorous cleaning standards in order to unsure every vehicle is disease free. Additionally screen dividers were placed between the front and rear of vehicles as an extra layer of safety. Not to mention almost all drivers at the time wore masks, gloves, and went through weekly covid testing to ensure every passenger was safe, not just the experts!
To this day many limo or car services uphold the standard set by medical professionals looking to keep a safe and clean environment for all travelers, and with so many different transportation services made available to you, your only concern will be finding the right price.
