Vancouver & Whistler Golf!

Time to GET YOUR GOLF ON in Vancouver and Whistler this summer season!
Here are a few great new incentives to get your group together and swing those sticks…

In Whistler, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club now has colour GPS systems in their new carts, Whistler Golf Club is sporting new Bent grass greens, and Nicklaus North Golf Course remodelled its signature par 3, 12th hole.

In Vancouver, some local favourites include the University Golf Club, just minutes from downtown Vancouver, Mayfair Lakes, only minutes from the Airport, Morgan Creek in South Surrey with their new club house, and Northview Golf & Country Club with two 18-hole public golf courses and only 15 minutes from the US Border.

And nestled almost right in between Vancouver and Whistler, along the brilliantly scenic Sea-to-Sky highway, is the Furry Creek Golf & Country Club.  A challenging and fun course with panoramic ocean views.

Now That’s Our Kind of Customer Service!

One can always hope in running a business that they’ve backed themselves with a team of strong and capable individuals.  Our hope often turns to pride…we will often receive wonderful feedback from our many clients simply raving about their experiences in large part due to their driver’s friendly and accommodating nature.
Most recently I received a kind message from a returning Whistler client regarding her trip and as I heard her story unfold an even larger smile than normal crept over my face.  I was beaming with pride in my team!

We had scheduled one of our drivers for a Whistler trip a few weeks ago and he recognized the name.  It was someone he had driven last winter season and he had remembered that this particular client loved Doritos chips and bought them by the box here as she couldn’t get them back home.

Rather than holding a sign reading her name for his meet & greet at the airport, our driver simply stood there with a bag of Doritos chips in plain view for her to see.  It was a happy reunion for the two…her Vancouver and Whistler travels were off to a great start.  She followed up later with a great photo of the two in Whistler.
Sometimes the simplest of things can mean the most.

Now that’s our kind of customer service!

The Launch of Western Corporate Shuttle

We at Luxury Transport Inc. have breathed life into a new and very much needed branch of our Company – Western Corporate Shuttle.

There is an increasing need to provide services to and from Corporate Offices from Skytrain Stations and off-site parking lots as well as fulfill daily inter-office transfers. Our smaller Sprinter Vans or larger Shuttle Buses are available for any group size.

We currently coordinate and facilitate full-time and part-time shuttle service for a number of corporations and business parks in the Lower Mainland.
These companies have eliminated parking issues as well as created a safe and easy way for their employees to get to and from work all while being nicer to the environment with a ride-share concept.

Some of them have late-night employees making their way to the skytrain and need us to ensure they get there safely. Others have multiple office locations and require transport of employees to and from each one for meetings, etc.
Then there’s the benefit of a ride-share program for cost and environmental reasons.

Whatever it may be, we are happy to put a competitive quote together for you.
We offer stats reports for ridership every month and work on a year to year basis with a trial period to ensure your needs are being met from the get-go.

We are now considered specialists on this front and we know we can fulfill your growing need for change. Have a read through our newly launched page www.westerncorporateshuttle.com
