Safe and Secure Livery Service Article Featured in the Quincy Patriot Ledger
Alan Powell has worked as a bartender. He’s also been a partner at Cape Cod BioFuels and has a background in sales and marketing. Now he has combined his business expertise and his concern with seeing too many people drive impaired to start Get Home Safe, a transportation service out of his Hanover home that provides rides for impaired drivers, no questions asked. We talked to Powell for this story.
Q. Why did you start this?
A. I was a bartender and a bachelor, and liked to go out and celebrate. When I didn’t drink, I’d often give people rides home, but there was no option for getting their cars home as well. So I started this business to do that.
Q. How does it work?
A. You call us, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we come out with two drivers, usually me and someone else, and they’re fully vetted; we use retired cops, teachers, and other professionals. It costs $249, and we operate in a 25-mile radius, from Boston south. I drive you in your car and the second driver brings your car. We keep it low-key. The cars aren’t marked with signs. Some people are embarrassed, so we make it less obvious. We also offer a prepaid pass. You can check www.get-homesafema.com for information.
