Filling A Need For Baby Boomers

Express Mobile Transportation Fills the Need of Aging Boomers and Caretakers

The ever aging Baby Boomer generation is expected to double by 2025.  As this generation ages, it brings along a whole set of challenges for their family members.   An AARP study found that the average caregiver is a 49-year-old woman who works outside the home and spends nearly twenty hours a week providing care for an aging parent or other family members for at least five years.  The person offering the care has the burden of lost work hours or forced into early retirement to provide the care needed for their loved one.

I encountered this experience first hand when both in-laws became terminally ill at the same time.  Fortunately, we had an active family unit, and many of us pulled together to orchestrate a manageable schedule for everyone.    Sadly, not all families have this same support system.   The challenge came with the need for multiple doctors’ appointments for both parents.    I would find myself leaving work early to take one parent to these appointments and then returning him or her home hours later.  There were many weeks when this became a three or four-day task, removing me from my office for a minimum of four hours each time.

One day I had a thought that I remember well…., “If I could find someone to transport my parent to and from their doctor’s appointments and I could meet them at the appointment, it would allow me a few extra hours at my desk!”   As I looked around the waiting room of the practitioner’s office, it appeared many people were in my exact situation.

My personal experience with this challenge and the knowledge of the passenger transportation industry led us to create Express Mobile Transportation.  Our family business, Executive Transportation, has existed for more than sixty years.  Within that time we have become experts in moving passengers safely and efficiently.   Our corporate clients trust us to serve them with the highest level of care and we are committed to treating our senior and mobility challenged clients with the dignity they deserve.

The rapid increase in aging Boomers brings about the opportunity for Express Mobile to partner with those caregivers who struggle with time constraints.  Express Mobile’s service is designed to bring peace of mind in knowing that a family member’s care is the same as if a family member was present. The goal is to relieve the pressure from the caregiver for the need to lose work hours, the possibility of having to rely on the unpaid “Family Leave Act”   or worse forced early retirement.

We understand that life is full of challenges; our main goal at EMT is to help empower you to overcome those challenges. Whether you have a non-emergency medical need such as physical therapy or a doctor’s appointment, or if you simply need wheelchair assistance going shopping, getting to church, or attending a family gathering, we are here to help.

Time with those you love is invaluable. Don’t let lack of transportation keep you from a happy and healthy life.

Don’t Miss A Moment.


Your family member’s comfort and safety is our number one priority. For reservations: 859-655-4600

What to Expect From a Professional Chauffeur

In today’s world there are so many options for you to hire a car service to get you from one place to another. Unfortunately, the convenience of companies like Uber, Lyft, and various taxi companies have created a culture of sub-par professionalism and sometimes questionably safe scenarios.

We often don’t think about it until we are inside the stranger’s car, but how safe are we really? Can we trust this person? These are valid questions to ask and shouldn’t be taken lightly. The reality is, the number one factor in your safety, comfort, and overall experience is your driver.

To help you ensure you’re going to get the experience you deserve, here are five things you should expect from a professional driver:

AppearanceDriver: Before getting into the vehicle, you should quickly notice that the Chauffeur exudes professionalism. The Chauffeur will be dressed to help represent you well. Simply stated, your professional driver should be wearing the following:>Men – Dress shirt, Tie, Jacket, Slacks, Belt, Dress ShoesWomen – Dress Shirt, Slacks, Skirt (knee length or longer), Blazer, Dress ShoesVehicle: The vehicle’s appearance is equally important as the driver’s. The exterior should be washed and well-detailed. The interior should have vacuumed seats and floorboards, clean dashboards, and you should notice a fresh scent.(Side note: There should never be a tip jar in your vehicle.)Attitude – A professional chauffeur should always greet you with smile and courtesy, willing to assist you by opening your door and placing any luggage in the vehicle for you. The best drivers are able to determine the atmosphere you desire and engage you in pleasant conversation during your ride or remain quiet, so you focus on the matters of the day.Well-Prepared – A professional chauffeur should always know where they are going with a clear plan. If necessary, the driver will also have a second or third route planned incase an issue arises such as an accident, traffic, etc. Their planning should always lead them to arrive 15 minutes early, never late.Safety and Comfort – All vehicles are properly maintained by on-staff mechanics with daily pre-trips performed by the chauffeur for any issues to be handled or to switch vehicles. The driver will always keep alert to road conditions, distances, and the surroundings using trained driving skills. These driving abilities will provide safe transportation for the client to relax. You should expect smooth turns, lane changes, and no hard braking or accelerating.Confidence – A Professional Chauffeur is never in distress. The driver will always maintain a positive outlook while being honest and in control. They will never bend or break any traffic laws such as speeding, hurrying through a yellow light, or rolling through a stop sign

Don’t be lax with the details . . . Arrive with confidence on your next trip. You and your plans are too important.

Holiday Travel Tips

Holiday Travel Tips

The holidays are upon us! From all the racing around town, to shopping, and Christmas parties, one thing that can be easy to forget when traveling out of town for holidays is how we are going to get all those gifts, luggage, and family members all in one vehicle. Since holiday travel will certainly be crazy this year, here are a few tips to help avoid a travel headache.

Avoid Peak Travel Days Traveling the day before or the day after a holiday can be like walking into Walmart at 6AM on Black Friday…crazy! Try utilize a company that lets you put in flexible travel dates; these will show you which date combinations will give you the best deal and help you avoid the stress you didn’t ask Santa for this year.

Try Alternate Airports Check alternate airports to see if you can avoid the rush of people…it can make all the difference. Smaller airports see fewer flights and typically fewer delays. Sometimes they can to have cheaper flights available, and that’s always a win!

Pack Wisely When Flying Think twice about wrapping any presents before you pack them. Trust us, TSA doesn’t care about those beautiful ribbons as much as you and they won’t be handling all those gifts with delicate care when there’s a line a mile long. So, opt to wrap gifts at your destination, and even consider pre-shipping gifts to free up space in your luggage.

Leave Early and Let Someone Else Drive It’s not just the congestion inside the airport like long lines at check-in and TSA that will cause you problems, but outside the airport has its own slew issues as well. Traffic jams and full parking lots are the last thing you need before your trip starts. Avoid all those obstacles by reserving a professional car service. A reliable car service will find your home in the wee hours of the morning, plan for traffic issues, and bring you to terminal door.

A little pre-planning can bring the much needed peace to your holiday travel and help you focus on what really matters during the season. Happy travels!

How to Travel Safely After the COVID-19 Shutdown

As U.S. states begin to gradually lift travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders, it’s no surprise that many people are feeling unsure about going back to their daily routines. The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has made normal activities, like travel, more complicated and stressful. If you are traveling in the near future, you may be considering how to stay safe and reduce your risk of contracting the virus. Luckily, you can take some of the stress out of the experience by following recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and by choosing transportation services that follow robust safety protocols.

CDC Recommendations for Safe Travel

While all 50 states are now partially reopened, there is still a risk for contracting COVID-19 if you don’t maintain proper hygiene practices. To help individuals remain as safe as possible while traveling, the CDC has provided a set of recommendations for minimizing exposure.

Keep these guidelines in mind as you plan your upcoming trip:

Wash Your Hands Often (and Properly) – Throughout your journey, be sure to wash your hands frequently, especially after coming in contact with high-touch surfaces like railings and door handles. You should clean your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.Carry Hand Sanitizer – If you don’t have access to soap and water, hand sanitizer is a good alternative. Therefore, it’s best to carry it with you at all times. Be sure to purchase hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, as anything less will not be effective for killing germs. If you’ll be traveling by plane, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) now allows people to bring larger hand sanitizer bottles on board. Details can be found on the TSA website.Wear a Face Mask – The CDC recommends that all individuals wear a face mask in public spaces when social distancing is not possible. This slows the spread of the virus and can help prevent infected people from transmitting it to others. Visit the CDC website for more information on face coverings.Practice Social Distancing – To reduce your exposure to the virus, try to maintain six feet of distance from others at all times.Get Coronavirus Updates – Before you leave, find out whether the virus is on the rise at your destination and what restrictions are currently in place.

The Rudy’s Difference: Three Essential Safety Features You Won’t Get with Ride-Sharing Services

Ride-sharing services have been touted as a quick and easy way to secure transportation when you need it. However, while it may seem convenient to pull out your phone and order a driver on the spot, these platforms come with a variety of downsides. Most notably, ride-sharing services have inadequate driver vetting procedures and virtually no vehicle maintenance standards, which can put you and your family in danger – even during a quick ride.

Luckily, there is a safer, more reliable alternative: private car services from Rudy’s Executive Transportation. Below, we’re discussing three essential safety features that you won’t find when using a ride-sharing service.

1. Cleanliness

Drivers for ride-sharing services use their personal vehicles, which are not subject to frequent inspections. Instead, there is a rating system in place that allows passengers to communicate the level of service they received. And while most drivers do not want a low rating, there is still no guarantee that they will maintain an adequate level of cleanliness in their vehicles.

When you schedule transportation with Rudy’s, you can rest assured that your vehicle will be spotless. We thoroughly sanitize, disinfect, and inspect each car in between trips. That way, we can provide the most sanitary car service possible. Plus, each of our vehicles is stocked with hand sanitizer for added cleanliness.

2. Thoroughly Vetted Drivers

Several ride-sharing services have been the subject of scrutiny due to their loose vetting procedures, many of which have massive gaps that allow unqualified drivers to slip through. In fact, most services only require one surface-level screening (for criminal offenses and driving incidents) and one state-level background check.

Meanwhile, at Rudy’s, we take the time to vet all of our drivers before they are hired. This includes thorough background checks, in-person interviews, recommendations, and more. Upon hiring, each of our drivers must go through extensive training to ensure they are up to date with all rules of the road and safety best practices.

3. State-of-the-Art Vehicles

As previously mentioned, ride-sharing service drivers must use their own vehicles, regardless of size, make, or condition. Even worse, there are currently no known checkpoints or requirements for vehicle safety. This can be a significant danger to passengers, especially if drivers fail to invest in necessary repairs and upgrades for their vehicles.

With Rudy’s, you won’t have to worry about the quality of the vehicle you receive for your transportation. Our fleet includes a wide variety of luxury cars and SUVs, each of which is kept in pristine condition, inside and out. Additionally, all of our vehicles include the latest safety features and receive thorough inspections before driving any customers.

Safe, Reliable Car Service Whenever You Need It

When traveling, nothing is more important than your safety. So, why take the risk of using an unreliable ride-sharing platform? At Rudy’s, we’re dedicated to providing unparalleled service, from the minute we pick you up to the minute we arrive at your destination. With our professional drivers, spacious, clean vehicles, and commitment to safety, you can feel confident knowing that you and your family will be in good hands every single time you ride with us.

What’s the Most Cost-Effective Transportation Option for Early Flights?

Early flights can be a hassle, no matter where you’re going or who you’re traveling with. Perhaps the most stressful part, however, is determining how to get to the airport on time for your departure. Typically, there are three possible options: driving yourself and parking at the airport, booking a nearby hotel and using an airport shuttle, or scheduling private transportation from a reputable car service. But which scenario is best in terms of cost and convenience? Let’s take a closer look!

The Cost of a Hotel Stay

A hotel room can cost anywhere from $100 to $400, depending on the location and quality of accommodations. Even so, there’s more inconvenience associated with a hotel stay than the actual bill. Common issues include:

Time – Finding the right hotel takes time and requires thoughtful consideration. Before making a selection, you’ll need to read customer reviews, search for available rooms, and more.Food – Eating out is an additional expense that can add $50 to $100 to your hotel stay, depending on the size of your group and how many meals you will need.Parking – If you drive to the hotel, you’ll need to leave your car at the hotel or airport while you are away. Neither option is free; in fact, both hotel and airport parking are notoriously expensive.Airport Shuttles – Many hotels offer airport shuttles as an added convenience for traveling customers. However, this amenity is not always free, and you likely won’t be able to choose what time the shuttle takes you to the airport. Additionally, you’ll have to share space with other passengers, which can be an added hassle, especially when you have luggage with you.

The Cost of Driving Yourself

To avoid the costs of a hotel, you might consider driving yourself to the airport. However, this option comes with its own set of inconveniences. Whether you’ll be parking at the airport for one day or one week, you’ll have a bill to pay when you return from your trip. Depending on your location, you can expect to pay anywhere from $9 to $28 per day. Not to mention, you’ll have to deal with the stresses of navigation, traffic, and locating an open parking spot at your terminal.

The Best Option: Leave the Stress at Home with Rudy’s Airport Transportation

Want to avoid costly hotel stays, inconvenient shuttles, and the hassles of parking at the airport? Rudy’s Executive Transportation offers convenient airport car service for travelers in Connecticut and New York City.

Our reliable car service provides you with a stress-free, safe way to travel to the airport at any hour of the day or night.
