Our Company is insured with a 5 million dollar policy, plus we carry some of the best Workman Compensation insurance available. Our drivers are very qualified and go through a rigorous backgroud check, a pre- employment drug test and remain in a randomized drug and alcohol testing program. Safety is our number one concern for our passengers. We are D.O.T (Department of Transportation) and D.O.D.
