SAN FRANSISCO LIMOS, BUSES & SUVS
First-class Reliable & Convenient Transportation
The City by the Bay is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Sure, you can see the city on foot, but instead of contending with San Francisco’s notoriously steep hills, why not let a luxury vehicle help you sightsee in style? Our drivers have been navigating Bay Area traffic for years and can take you wherever you need to go, from downtown to down the coast.
OML luxury transportation services aren’t limited to Chicagoland. Reserve transportation with us for your trip to San Francisco and you’ll be able to enjoy the same quality service you’ve come to expect with us on the West Coast – whether you need airport transportation to and from SFO, want to make date night downtown extra special, or are in town for business and have no idea how to navigate the area.
About Traveling San Francisco
When you think of visiting San Francisco, a couple of things might come to mind: the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Chinatown, the Transamerica Pyramid, Fisherman’s Wharf, cable cars. While each is synonymous with the city and certainly worth seeing, there are plenty of other locales that shouldn’t be overlooked.
When the weather is nice in Fog City, you can expect San Franciscans to flock to parks in droves. And who can blame them? The Presidio, Golden Gate Park, Yerba Buena Gardens, Pioneer Park, and Dolores Park all offer gorgeous sweeping views of the city and the bay, and Alamo Square Park lets you admire the Painted Ladies.
Union Square is an entertainment hub full of shops, restaurants, and galleries. Here you can find flavors from every corner of the globe that appease every appetite. Grab a casual bite for breakfast at Pinecrest Diner, or enjoy a fine dining experience at Campton Place, a two Michelin-starred restaurant that specializes in New American cuisine.
SF/Arts is your guide to all things arts and culture in San Francisco. Theater, public works of art, film, museums, festivals, literature, dance, kid-friendly fun – SF/Arts covers it all. For sports fans, the Bay Area is the place to be. Catch a baseball, football, basketball, hockey, or soccer game in and around the San Francisco Bay.
A drive to the surrounding areas will give you a whole new perspective of the region. No trip to San Francisco is complete without a visit to Napa Valley. Approximately 50 miles north of the city, the Valley is littered with vineyards that produce some of the best wine in the world. Travel across the Golden Gate Bridge to visit Sausalito and see the giant redwoods at Muir Woods, or take the famous 17-Mile Drive down the coast and explore the seaside towns of Monterey and Carmel.
Just south of the city along 17-Mile Drive lies Pebble Beach Golf Links, perhaps the most beautiful golf course in the world. Of course, that makes it rather difficult to get a tee time on short notice. There are other more accessible, relatively inexpensive options within the limits of San Francisco, including TPC Harding Park and Presidio Golf Course.
There is always something to do in San Francisco. Annual events are held throughout the year, many of which pay homage to the city’s iconic landmarks and rich history. Each January, Pier 39 celebrates the arrival of the sea lions at the K-Dock, where they make their home for the next several months. Attend a film festival or ring in the Chinese New Year at the annual parade in Chinatown, home to the largest Chinese community outside of Asia.
Don’t go through the hassle of navigating one of the most congested parts of the country. Let OML do the driving for you and you’ll be able focus on soaking in the sights in style.
Cancellation & Reservation Policies
Our Cancellation Policy
We prefer to receive any cancellations or changes at least 24 hours in advance, but we understand that unexpected things happen and will accept them up to at least one hour prior to the scheduled pickup time.
If one hour notice is not given, we will charge the minimum fare for a “no-show”.
Please retain the cancellation number our reservationist gives you for your records. If a change order is given for a later pickup time and it is not received within one hour of the original pickup time, a “wait time” charge will be incurred.
We are aware that office employees or chauffeurs who use or abuse prohibited substances are a danger to themselves, their coworkers and to the customers who depend upon them to transport them securely in one of our vehicles. We can no longer depend upon individual discretion to provide the guarantee that substance abuse does not adversely affect any one of us. We realize that in today’s complex society it is necessary for O’Hare-Midway Limousine Service to insist upon the strict implementation and enforcement of this policy – and we intend to do so.
Any chauffeur who tests positive for substance abuse will not be “eligible for dispatch”; he or she will not be allowed to drive an O’Hare-Midway Limousine Service vehicle under any circumstance. All office employees will also be required to have “drug-free” status in order to remain on the job. We conduct periodic random tests to ensure that our staff is well monitored. Additionally, all new office employees and chauffeurs will be tested as a condition of employment. This policy is just one more way that O’Hare-Midway Limousine Service will demonstrate the important commitment to providing clients with the safest and most reliable form of ground transportation in Chicagoland.
Luggage Limitations Policy
In order to protect the property of our clientele, and in the interest of safety in general, the following luggage policies apply:
- Luggage must fit completely inside the vehicle. Tie-downs are prohibited.
- If a client has more luggage than we are able to fit into the vehicles trunk, a PRIVATE CAR is required. If you are unsure whether or not your luggage will fit, it is strongly suggested that you reserve a private car. Shared Car clients will not just be sharing a vehicle, but will need to share truck space as well. Please take this into consideration when reserving your vehicle.
- Skis will not fit safely in a Sedan. A Limousine or SUV will be necessary to ensure the safety of this equipment, as well as the safety of the chauffeur and passenger(s).
- Luggage that will not fit in the closed trunk of the vehicle will be put inside the car, as long as the safety of the chauffeur and passengers is not compromised.
No Nonsense Alcohol Policy
Our alcoholic beverage policy is based upon two statutes under current Illinois law. The first statute, #5/5-1, Class 8, deals with the distribution of alcoholic beverages. This law states that a license must be issued by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission in order to distribute alcohol. Under no circumstance may a license be issued to a livery vehicle. Therefore, it is illegal for O’Hare-Midway to provide alcohol to our passengers.
The second statute, #5/11-502, deals with the transportation or possession of alcoholic beverages in a motor vehicle. This law states that it is illegal for anyone to transport or drink alcoholic beverages in a motor vehicle. However, this statute “…shall not apply to the passengers in a limousine when it is being used for purposes for which a limousine is ordinarily used, the passengers on a chartered bus when it is being used for purposes for which chartered buses are ordinarily used…” Furthermore, “…a limousine is a motor vehicle of the first division with the passenger compartment enclosed by a partition or dividing window used in the for-hire transportation of passengers and operated by an individual in possession of a valid Illinois driver’s license of the appropriate classification…” As a result, we will allow our adult passengers to drink their own alcohol ONLY in a stretch limousine or mini-coach. No minor under 21 years of age is allowed to drink in our vehicles.
Our Reservation Policy
When you call to make a reservation, our reservationist will first ask you for the passenger’s contact phone number, including the area code, regardless of the pickup location. This number accesses the passenger’s profile in our computer system. This file will consist of the passenger’s name, address, preferred payment method, and an additional space for any special instructions.
