"With all the time we spend in our cars, one of the challenges is finding ways to make that time more productive and stress-free," said Dennis Carlson, President & CEO of WeDriveU.

--  Save time and money - From business meetings to social engagements,
    WeDriveU is a convenient and flexible way to get around for 30% - 40% less
    than a car and driver service

    calls, send text messages or compose email while your chauffeur worries
    about traffic, directions and schedules
--  Serving business and leisure travelers with Avis® Chauffeur Drive -

    medical or other driving restrictions, including seniors who wish to spend
    less time behind the wheel
--  Event services - Offering meeting planners the most efficient,
    comfortable and cost-effective chauffeured transportation for events and
    conventions

    Connecticut's wine trail and more.
    

"I underwent a medical procedure which kept me from driving for roughly three months, and I needed to drive roughly 15 hours per week for business," said Martin G. Stein with Mutual Realty & Investment Co. "Without WeDriveU, this would have been very difficult. They were always on-time, courteous, and the level of service I received was excellent. I encourage anyone to try this service."

"Our expansion is great news for customers, meeting planners and travel agents," said Michael Landberg, General Manager for WeDriveU in greater Boston. "WeDriveU is the perfect choice for chauffeurs -- we connect clients to all the places they want to go in the comfort of their car."
