Driverseat Helps Students Return to School!

Local Franchise Expanding its Transportation Services for University Students post COVID-19

Driverseat announced today that they are expanding their fleet in London to include larger 24 passenger vehicles. This step comes after discussions with existing commercial clients for transportation of students from their residences to Western University in the fall. Mid-sized commercial vehicles have previously been used for these daily runs, however protocols for physical distancing created the need for larger vehicles, allowing for passengers to sit apart. In addition, some students will be moved to single occupancy rooms, requiring Driverseat to add vehicles to service additional locations.

Driverseat London franchisee Glenn Clark states, “I am happy to continue providing services to residents of London, and to be able to help so many organizations deal with the new reality. Our customized service options meet the needs of the organizations, businesses and other institutions. In addition to offering optimal social distancing, each vehicle is equipped with commercial grade disinfecting wipes and sanitizer and is completely wiped down before each ride. Additionally, our Chauffeurs wear Personal Protective Equipment; we take every precaution to ensure the safety of our passengers and team.”

Driverseat London launched Designated Driving and Airport Chauffeur services in 2016. They have since expanded into the Shuttle and Micro-transit business allowing for private transportation for up to 24 passengers. The service options are vast but include transportation to all airports, employee shuttles, medical assistance, weddings and tours.

Brian Bazely, CEO Driverseat adds, “We are very pleased with how our business model plays a role in this next normal. Our franchisees across North America focus on the customer, finding solutions for their organization. As a result, we have seen growth in many locations and are in the process of opening up new markets. Glenn and his team at Driverseat London are incredible people who have accomplished so much in their first 4 years.”

Driverseat locations across North America specialize in employee transportation, retirement home services, hotel transportation and other specialized services along with wedding, airport and shuttle tours to micro-breweries and wineries.

As an essential service, Driverseat remains committed to offering customized solutions for transportation in a manner that keeps people safe and moving.
