In our commitment to stay abreast of the latest news surrounding the transportation industry, Limo 805 is closely following the possible impact of the Google car on luxury car rentals. The Google car is the prototype for an automated vehicle that is driver-less – that’s right! No more human drivers will be needed with this innovative transportation solution. While it is being touted as the safe alternative to the human-controlled vehicles, we wondered what it would mean for luxury car rentals and how it would change the face of Limo 805.
It’s not all bad news as there would likely be no need for automobile insurance as car crashes would be non-existent. DUI driving and accident-related injuries and fatalities would also disappear. However, some industries would be negatively impacted the consequences of a massive, sweeping change to today’s transportation, such as body repair shops and fast delivery pizza shops. As for the luxury transportation industry, Limo 805 can evolve and continue to provide upscale service. The predictions of how the Google car will impact personal transportation point to a decreased need for owning a vehicle and a surging demand for car rentals. We have surmised that we can continue the Limo 805 brand and convert our fleet to provide luxury and executive transportation services if the Google car were to overhaul the way we travel.
A big question for luxury car rentals is the cessation of human drivers, which would mean chauffeurs would be unnecessary. While this automation in driving would mean our chauffeurs wouldn’t be hired to drive the rental vehicles, we believe that the unparalleled level of service provided by our chauffeurs would translate into upscale service in the luxury and executive Google rental car world.
For the time being, the Google car is in the earliest of planning stages and will continue to be a mere glint on the transportation horizon for quite some time. If it should shift from dream into reality, Limo 805 will be prepared to create an avenue for our clients to continue utilizing our luxury car rental service despite the evolution of modern transportation.
