This week marks a legendary occasion in the marriage of Boston music and sports.  On Tuesday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 16 Fenway Park is playing host to the minister of rock and roll, the infamous Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.  I’d swim across the Boston harbor to get a pair of tickets to see this show.  I don’t even think I’d have to like Springsteen and I’d still want to go.  There’s something magical about pairing a rock legend with a historic sports venue like Fenway.  The two were meant for each other.  So this got me thinking.  What other awesome concerts have there been in the basilica of baseball?  And who’s made the most appearances?

6 Steps to Finding a Limousine Company

Posted by Michael Foilb on Thu, Aug 24, 2017 @ 12:49 PM

Choosing a limo company can be quite daunting. An internet search for "massachusetts limo" gives you over 400,000 results!  So whether you need a ride to Logan a  luxury limousine for your wedding day, or an option for a night out, how do you pick the right one?


Here are our top six most important things to consider when looking for a limo service.

1. Fleet

On average a typical limousine company in Massachusetts has a fleet  of five vehicles. There are lots of small companies with one to five cars. Those mom and pop limo companies typically don't have the infrastruction or sophistication to properly maintain their cars, provide 24 hour service or offer professionally-trained chauffeurs. Additionally, some limo companies have old and worn vehicles. If you find a company offering a hummer limo, it's likely 10 years old or more, they stopped manufacturing them in 2009. Similarly, don't get stuck in a dated town car limousine. The last ones were built in 2011, not only are the pretty beat up at this point, but when you take pictures, your ride looks dated before you even get inside.

Ask about the makeup of the fleet. Are there more than limos? What about Spinters, Transits, SUVs, sedans, party buses, trolleys, stretch SUVs, vintage cars, etc. There a good chance that you'll want to explore all your options for your ride. Don't get stuck with a vehicle choice that doesn't match the flavor of your event. Your night is special, so you ride should be as well.

2. Licenses, Certifications & Associations

The state of Massachusetts requires that limousine operators be licensed. There are requirements from the DPU, MassPort and the DOT. Companies have to  have proof liability insurance. All you need is a web page and a phone number to look like a legit business. Take the time to verity that the company is above board.

Check for alliances with the New England Livery Assoatiaion (NELA) and the  National Limousine Association (NLA). FYI, Le Limo was one of the founding members of the NELA. Check the member list here to ensure that you're working with a legit company.

Review the BBB rating of your prospective limo company. Customer reviews and complaints (if any) are part of the mix of information used to determine the company's grade.

3. Chauffeur/Driver Screening

There's been a lot of controversy surrounding the suitability of some "professional" driving companies. There is no shortcut here, either you do it right or you do it illegally. All chauffeurs must take a drug test and pass a physical. Companies should be investigating CORI records of criminal background and the driving records on all prospective employees. Then there's the professionalism quotiant. A top-notch firm will have fine-dressed drivers with black suits and white shirts to make sure they exude a sense of luxury and class.

4. Check the 3 R's—referrals, references and reviews

Check out web review sites like Angie’s List, CItySearch, Yelp, or Wedding Wire. The best way to learn about a limo service is to hear from former customers. They can give you a non-biased insight to the service you can expect to see from the organization. Another great source might be referals. Ask a vendor who works with limo companyies, friend, relative or co-worker who they might have used and if they were happy with the service. A first-hand referral may be the best way to select a limo company.

5. Price

Yes, price is important, but you do have to keep in mind that sometimes you get what you pay for. Just ask the kids who went to the Natick prom in a limousine that caught on fire! Ask questions about the pricing, is it all-inclusive? Do you need to add any admin fees? transporation charges? gratuity? fuel surchage, tolls, MassPort fees? etc. Don't be fooled by a low bait and switch price. Ask how much everything will cost for your ride...everything!

6. Safety

Saftey is boring...unless it's missing! Check to make sure the company you’re considering has a valid certification and liability insurance. Check their safety record. Ask what kind of training their chauffeurs get? And are all their vehicles DOT, DPU and Mass State inspected?

Choose wisely and a fantastic ride will be a seamless component of your fabulous ride.

Le Limo Boston Wedding Limo Transportation Tips

Posted by Michael Foilb on Mon, Jun 05, 2017 @ 12:29 PM

boston trolley

For more than 30 years, brides have turned to Le Limo to provide transportation for a wide variety of points of their itineraries.  Many clients love to use wedding vehicles as an effective and safe way to move family, guests, bridal party members and, of course, the bride and groom.

As you plan, there are some timing pitfalls you should be aware of.  In order to help you decide if multiple trips are the best option for your event please note the following:

  • Make sure the chauffeur has a point of contact that will make the final decision on when the vehicle will depart each location. 
  • Make sure you include the round trip time for each transfer.  (Google maps is a great site to build a proposed itinerary that includes drive times and routes)
  • Be sure your guests know when they are expected to be boarding the vehicle.
  • Build in extra time for each trip based on "loading" and "unloading" and traffic delays.
  • Remember that the chauffeur must obey all traffic laws and will not speed to "make up time" if your guests are delayed.
  • Send a printed itinerary that includes your designated point of contact for the day of service (with cell#) to the office for the chauffeur to take with him/her on the day of your event.
  • If you are able to include a manifest of names or a head count for each trip that is very useful as well.

Wedding day transportation timing is crucial to the success of your day.  Delays can cause shortened ceremonies, missed cocktail hours, and longer receptions and additional charges from other vendors.  Proper planning can be the difference between a successful stress free day and chaos and confusion.  Our staff at Le Limo can help you create a properly timed itinerary and advise you of any additional timing issues you need to take into consideration (ceremonies vs. full mass, photo stops, receiving lines, road closures or construction delays, roads our vehicles are not allowed to travel on such as Hanover Street, Memorial Drive, etc..).  We look forward to helping you plan a spectacular wedding day!

16 Awesome Final Exam Hacks

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, May 31, 2017 @ 08:58 PM


You’re psyched about the end of the term, prom and summer plans are on your mind, but you still have those annoying finals to deal with. Here are some tips on how to unearth the most viable answers to those multiple choice and true/false questions. We guarantee that these will only help some of the time.

  1. When an answer is absolute and contains words like “always, only, never, none, all, no, exactly, must, everything, etc,” those answers is usually false or invalid. Almost nothing happens the same way all the time (unless it’s a math test). But, don’t use this tip to eliminate “all of the above” or “none of the above” as potential answers.

  2. Conditional words like “sometimes, probably, mostly, typically, seldom, many, almost, usually, likely, etc.” are more apt to be true.

  3. None of the Above, is regularly a choice on most tests, however it is rarely the answer. The goal of the test is to help you learn, if “None of the Above” was the correct answer, you wouldn’t really learn anything from the question. Be careful of double negatives that the teacher may add to confuse you.

  4. All of the Above, if you start looking at answers and think definitely A is correct and maybe B and C, well “All of the Above” is likely the right answer. Again by having multiple correct answers the teacher gives you a better chance to learn more about the topic.

  5. If the answer is funny, it’s usually wrong. It’s the teacher have fun with the answers and giving you a little bit of a break narrowing down the answers.

  6. The longest response is often the correct one. Teachers do not want to spend their time writing wrong long answers. When you see lots of information and adjectives in an answer it may be a clue that it is the right response.

  7. Similarly, if a true/false question is longer than the others, then it is likely a true statement.

  8. When in doubt, typically, more answers are true than false.

  9. Statements that contain the word “because or since” have a better chance of being true. They explain why the statement is true.

  10. See if there’s a word in the question that matches a word in the answer. That might be a clue that the answer is linked to the question.

  11. Keep an eye out for grammar clues. If the lead in question ends with the article “an” the answer likely starts with a vowel. If it ends with an “a,” answers with vowels are likely incorrect.

  12. Also on the grammar front look for clues that an answer might be plural or singular. If the statement ends in “are” the answer should be plural, where if the last word is “is,” the answer should be singular.

  13. When two answers are opposite, then one of them is typically correct. This is the teacher taking the easy way out of coming up with a wrong answer. Use it to narrow your choices.

  14. Using the same theory, try to find words that look similar or answers that contain similar words. One of those is usually correct. Again the teacher is finding an easy way to give you a wrong answer option.

  15. When you have a number options on multiple choice (that is not a math test), typically the highest and lowest numbers are incorrect. They help frame the correct answer and may help to increase your chances.

  16. Finally, when you just run out of options, for teacher created tests, “C” is the most popular option and “B” is the second most popular.


Hopefully, these tips will make test taking a little easier. To make a night out a little more special most people would recommend:

A.   Getting a ride in a Big Yellow School Bus

B.   Reserving a Limo or Party Bus from Le Limo

C.   Asking a parent to drive you

D.   None of the above

If you picked B or if you need help with the answer call us at 800-297-8970. We'll take the worry out of prom, you just worry about the test!

7 Prom Night Safety Tips

Posted by Michael Foilb on Sun, May 14, 2017 @ 10:56 AM

For teens on prom day, there are usually an abundance of opportunities and peer pressure to partake in sex, drugs and alcohol. Be smart; don’t do anything you don’t want to do. It’s okay to say “No.” Your real friends will still respect you.  


Some things to keep in mind for the day of the prom:

  1. If you’re driving, make sure you know the roads and make sure your ride is ready to go. Verify that you have enough gas and check your directions and start times. Some schools no longer let students in if they arrive late to prom.
  2. Have your phone charged and keep it with you.
  3. Don’t leave a drink unattended or take a new beverage from someone else. If your glass is ever left alone, just get a new one.
  4. Never ride in a car with someone who is impaired in anyway. Tell the driver not to speed and ask them not to text while driving. They need to drive safely and alertly.
  5. If you’re driving, limit the number of passengers. Statistics for teens, show that as the number of passengers increases, the risk of getting into a collision increases.
  6. WEAR SEATBELTS! According to the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 70% of prom deaths drivers and passengers were not wearing seat belts.
  7. Have a plan to call for help. Whether it’s a parent, aunt, uncle or other adult, have an escape plan if you feel you’re in an uncomfortable situation. Trust your instinct and don’t take chances.

Your prom night is a lifelong memory, be safe.

6 Tips for Making a Smart Limo Company Choice for Prom

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, May 09, 2017 @ 11:00 AM

You remember the story of the prom goers who had their limousine catch on fire? You need to make smart choices on prom night, and cheapest does not mean smartest.

If you do a web search for “limousines Massachusetts” you literally get millions of results. There are hundreds of companies in the state, so picking the right limo service can be unwieldy. With so many companies and cars to choose from, how do you pick the right one? Whether it's a party bus or a limo, the key is to do your homework. Below, is some insight as to what you should be looking for from your prom transportation vendor.

Le Limo Party Bus Interior

1. References and Reviews

Check out yelp, citysearch, google+,, insiderpages, Better Business Bureaubusinessfinder, superpages and Angieslist. The best way to learn about a company is to hear from former customers. Former clients can give you non-biased insight about the service you can expect from the transportation provider. Also, you may want to check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there are complaints filed against your prospective livery company.

One of the best ways to find good limo services is through word of mouth. Ask a friend, relative or co-worker who they might have used and if they were happy with the service. A first hand referral is the best way to select a limousine company.

2. Number of Years in Business

Business experience is important. There are lots of nuances in coordinating a successful ride. One of the best way to make sure that everything runs smoothly at prom time is to hire a company with in-depth knowledge about how to manage prom transportation. If you find a newer company that seems to meet your needs, check into the experience of the staff. Have they been coordinating prom transportation for a few years?

3. Fleet

There are an abundance of choices for vehicle types, stretch limos, party buses, a custom-built trolley, shuttle buses, stretch SUVs and Mercedes Sprinters. The average fleet size in Massachusetts is five. Smaller companies will obviously have fewer choices and less availability. HINT: Ask the model year of the car you're renting. If you're being offered a Town Car limo, it's from 2011 at the latest. To enjoy your date, don't hire a limo that is dated!

4. Review your options in person

Seriously, take the time to see the vehicle you’re renting. Nothing is more deflating than gettiing picked up in an old limousine or worn and tired party bus. You might be able to get a good sense of the vehicle from pictures online but make sure to confirm that the transportation you expect is the transportation you get.

5. Cost

Of course price is a factor. But don't be fooled, limousine companies sometimes have layers of fees that they add on to your base rate. You’ll see fuel surcharges, administration costs, transportation charges, tolls and gratuity for the driver all the sudden your bill is 30% higher than your quote. Make sure the price you get is the total price.

But, don't cheap out on your prom ride. This is a night you'll literally remember the rest of your life. Do have that memory include an old, run-down limo. Pictures from prom night will be in your portfolio for a lifetime, don't start with an old Town Car limo or a Hummer from last decade.

6. Safety

While, it isn't sexy, it is vital. Check to make sure the company has a valid livery certification. Do they have liability insurance? Are their chauffeurs professionally trained? Do they do background checks on their new hires? And are the vehicles DOT inspected and DPU approved?

Le Limo is proud to have built a 5 star reputation since our founding in 1986. There are 30 vehicle option in our fleet and we urge you to come check them out in person. We have an open house ever Saturday from noon to 3 PM or make an appointment to stop by. Our fleet is updated constantly meanlng a more luxurious and safter ride. We help you Return to an Era of Unparalleled Luxury.

6 Prom Night Safety Tips for PARENTS

Posted by Michael Foilb on Mon, May 08, 2017 @ 09:09 PM

Prom season is approaching and many parents are helping their teens prepare for one of the most memorable nights of their lives. Part of getting ready should include talking to your children about safety, including how to deal with alcohol, drugs and sex.


  1. Talk about the perils and your concerns for your prom-goer’s potential involvement in sex, drug and alcohol use. You need to make sure these students understand the consequences of their decisions involving these activities. Additionally, most schools and towns now have very strict policies about drugs and alcohol. Not only can they be tossed from the prom, there could serious discipline and legal consequences. And those laws also apply to parents. Parents sometimes think if I have the kids come to my home, I’ll know they’ll be safe. But actually, an adult host is now legal liable for any actions that involve your houseguests drinking and taking drugs.
  2. Talk to the other parents of your teen’s friends/date. Make sure you all understand the plans. While your teen might tell you he’s at Ethan’s house, Ethan’s parents may get told the prom group ended up at your house. Yes, you trust your child, but do you trust your child’s friends’ friends? Find out where they’re going and find out and confirm what their plans are. Now is the time to be a parent not a friend. Don’t let them participate in dangerous behavior, let them blame you for not letting them act irresponsible. Better they be mad at you and safe, then to deal with any potential consequences.
  3. Set up an escape plan for bad or perilous situations. Come up with a text message or other alert so that you can help get them out of any sticky circumstances. Tell them it’s okay to call you at any time for help, advice or to get permission.
  4. Set up check in times. Have teens contact you at pre-set times to confirm that they are safe. Ensure that they know that you want to know that everything is going as planned or they need to make sure to let you know if any plans change.
  5. Set up a ride for the prom. It doesn’t have to be a limo, but you want a safe alternative to letting the prom-goers drive. Whether it’s due to drowsiness, over exuberance, bad weather, taking selfies, over the counter medicine, texting, speeding to impress a friend, putting on makeup or alcohol, the fewer teenagers driving on prom night the better. Hire a professional to drive, don’t take risks with safety.
  6. Tell your child, it's okay to say, "NO." Whether its drugs, sex or alcohol, your teen has the right to say no and real friends will respect that decision.

Le Limo has some very strict rules for prom night. No beverages are allowed onboard the vehicle. Water and vodka look pretty much the same in a water bottle. No backpacks are allowed. Again, we don’t know what’s in the backpack, but we’ll know it will be safe if the backpack stays home. We also don’t let the kids change the ride route. If there’s a need to redirect the trip, we will do that only when it is requested or approved by the parents of the rider.

Have a magnificent and safe prom night.

Wedding Transportation Ideas

Posted by Michael Foilb on Tue, Apr 25, 2017 @ 11:04 PM

While a limo is the traditional choice for your wedding day transportation, there are some interesting alternatives that may cause some buzz about your event. You should start the discussion about transportation by thinking about who needs to go where when. Obviously, keep in mind that alcohol consumption may make in reckless for some guests to drive.

You know you and your future spouse need a ride, but what about the bridal party and the parents of the wedding couple. What about the guests? Does it make sense to set up a shuttle from your venue to the guest hotel(s)?

There are lots of considerations which leads to lots of options for your wedding wheels. Here are just a few vehicle choices to consider.


Vintage Vehicles

Go glam to your ceremony and reception. An antique car like our vintage Rolls-Royce not only create timeless memories, it also means that wedding photos never look dated. It’s a classic option for a high class wedding.  

Stretch Limousines and SUVs

A tradtional choice, the stretch limo brings a formal, luxurious look and feel to any event and is the ‘go to’ option for wedding transportation. Before you book, just think about some of the options available on the limo front. Town cars (latest model was 2011), Hummers (out of production in 2009) are still used by reputable companies but your images will be dated before you even finish the ‘I do’s.” Ask about hiring a late-model style car. The SUV limo provides a little more glitz and glitter. While they typically seat more passengers, they also have some wildly fun amenities like a disco dance floor, Xbox and PlayStation gaming systems, under carriage lighting, surround sound, DVD players, full bar, light shows, gull wing doors, multiple televisions and more.

Party Buses

After all, this is a party. So let’s get the party started during the ride. With seating up to 28 you and your guests can "belly up" to the bar, turn on the lights and crank the music, before the band even warms up. A party bus is a total blast, there's room to stand giving you sapce to roam, mingle, dance or just stretch out. With laser light shows, iPod stereo hookup, full bar stocked with ice and real glassware, your guests may not want to get off the bus.

Shuttle Bus

With seating up to 35 a shuttle is the safest way to make sure that your guest get back to their rooms without any driving risks. While it's usually simple and straight forward transporation you can spruce things up by leaving gift bags or party favors on the seats or even by serving a midnight snack.  

Custom Trolley

Transport your guests in a luxury trolley with leather wrap-around seating, an onboard bar, surround sound and more. A trolley provides a great mix of class and character.  Trolleys can hold up to 36 passengers and they make a great backdrop for photo shoots of the bride and groom or wedding party.


The Custom Combo Option

Obviously, you and mix and match your transportation options. You can get the Rolls for the Bride and Groom, a stretch SUV for the wedding party and a shuttle bus for the guests. Some groups hire a stretch limo for the parents of the bride and groom along with the wedding couple, while the bridal party travels in a bus. Our most popular combo is the Custom Built Trolley, for the wedding party and guests and our Vintage Rolls Royce for the Bride and Groom. This paring creates the ultimate photo op for everyone involved.

Most of all make sure to find a reliable, high ranked, professional company with wedding day experience. Transportation should be a choice not a worry.Le Limo would be proud to be part of your wedding day? Call our wedding logistics expert at 508-842-4790.
