It seems as if there are always new ride-sharing, shuttle, and transportation services popping up all the time, and there’s still demand for even more of them. This is especially true of large, densely populated cities, but also even in remote towns where such services may not be readily available. If you find yourself with the right skills, ambition, you can use those skills to start a passenger van transportation business.
Luxury Transportation Services
Luxury services could include limo services and executive shuttles. You can go two ways with this one: focus on high-end executives, or provide a luxury experience for guests at budget prices. With the latter, you would be offering limo services for passengers who usually could not afford them.
If you live in an area with an airport, bus or train station and plenty of hotels and smaller bed-and-breakfasts, there is likely a need for shuttle providers who can transport guests and visitors in the local community. You can partner with small hotels, inns, guest houses, and bed-and-breakfasts in the area, allowing them to offer a convenient service to their guests.
Sometimes, customers need transportation for events and activities, but they don’t necessarily need to be driven around. You can rent out your van for these occasions, and you can charge more than you could have for shuttle or taxi services. Turo, a peer-to-peer vehicle sharing app, makes the process simple. A clean and reliable passenger van is all you need to start this type of business.
In any major city, there are seniors and individuals with limited mobility who need help getting around town. Not all of them can rely on family, friends, or caregivers. This is where you come in.
If you can hire drivers with medical or EMT training, you can offer paratransit services. For this type of business, you’ll need to have a conversion van that can carry wheelchairs and equipment.
Starting Your Passenger Transportation Business
These are just a few ideas for passenger van transportation businesses you could start. For any of them to succeed, you’ll need a dependable passenger van that can accommodate the number of passengers you expect to be transporting. Limo, paratransit, and senior service businesses can all greatly benefit from the space and extra features offered by a 15-passenger conversion van. In any case, you should choose a vehicle that is reliable and fuel-efficient. This will help ensure the success of your new transportation business.
