Traveling When The Cyclists Are In Town

The largest American cycling conference is winding down in Pittsburgh and some have already noticed the groups of cyclists out and about. Cycling is a green way to get in and out of town, though it may not be ideal for the business traveler -- after all, you could hardly keep a suit pressed while blazing through the city streets. But it does beg a question; how is one to get any business done when hundreds of cyclists have hit the pavement? Here are a few reasons why you may want to rely on a car service this time of year.

The Cyclists Don't Know The Streets

Though these cyclists are among the most experienced cyclists in the nation, they still don't know the city streets. This convention is so large that people come from all over the nation to attend it -- some people even travel internationally. Some of these cyclists are even quite tired, with some of them having biked all the way from other states. With so many cyclists who are so unaccustomed to the roads, there are bound to be accidents.

Other Drivers Aren't Used To The Cyclists

Of course, it isn't only the cyclists that you need to watch out for. Other drivers on the road certainly aren't used to this volume of cycling occurring. Even without errors by the cyclists, the drivers themselves could cause road hazards that you simply cannot react to. Drivers may not see cyclists or -- worse -- may not even think to look for them.

No One Enjoys Traffic

Unfortunately, it's a fact that additional cyclists also mean additional traffic -- especially when there is a sudden influx of cyclists, such as the convention brings. Rather than sitting in traffic and wondering where your work day is going, a private car service will let you focus on other things. Send emails, jot down notes or even work on your laptop to remain productive and ride the event through.

Of course, cycling is a fantastic addition to any city and an excellent way for a city to become greener. It is only when an unusual amount of cyclists enter into the town that you may want to be a little cautious, as it's simply a situation that everyone involved isn't used to encountering. Still, if you're at all worried about the traffic or the fuss, you may be better off letting your driver worry about it.

From our clients:

Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
