A "Golden" Experience for the University of Michigan Football Games
October 15, 2013 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) As in years past, Golden Limousine will be very busy providing University of Michigan transportation services to out of town alumni and fans on Saturday, October 19th at 3:30 p.m., when one of the more lopsided rivalries in college football will resume. The Michigan Wolverines will take on the Indiana Hoosiers in Ann Arbor at Michigan Stadium. The current state of the rivalry (in wins) has the Wolverines ahead of the Hoosiers 51-9. . Michigan alumni are a loyal group, to not only the University, but also Ann Arbor, which is filled with so much diversity and culture.
After years of servicing the area as an Ann Arbor airport shuttle service and event transportation specialists, Golden understands the impression ambassadors, like the University, have on the Ann Arbor area. "When Mary Kerr, President & CEO of the Ann Arbor Area Conventions & Visitors Bureau (AAACVB), recently asked us to sponsor the AAACVB Recognition Dinner & Ambassador Awards we were honored to do so," Sean Duval, CEO of Golden Limousine shared. "Witnessing ambassadors like Howard "Howdy" Holmes and Dennis E. Norton receiving their awards, in addition to a detailing of their past contributions and continuing efforts, created an inspiring event. The presentation by Mike Tirico, ESPN Play-By-Play Commentator, and Studio and ESPN Radio Host, was the icing on the cake! Although, being seated on the Michigan Crisler Center basketball court, for the banquet, was the final sprinkle that made the evening unforgettable," Sean explained.
Being part of Ann Arbor means understanding the impact a Michigan football game has on the community and local commerce. Tirico, a longtime resident of Ann Arbor, included in his remarks his admiration for university athletic programs that serve as a "front porch" for communities. Visitors come to see football and in the process discover Ann Arbor, which might not have happen without the football game. Hotels and restaurants yearn for game weekends because of this, as do local residents. Parking for a Michigan home game is great business for those Ann Arbor residents fortunate enough to own property near the sports arenas and parking at the University golf course or Pioneer high school can reach $50 per car.
Golden also experiences increased business when out of town fans are looking to step up their game experience – a day filled with ease and comfort. It is not uncommon for the Detroit limo service to meet incoming private jets to escort Michigan fans to their hotels or directly to the game. Although most wish to commission a luxury coach for the game, which offers drink service, on board entertainment and are perfect for tailgating before and after the game. The luxury coaches are wheelchair accessible in order to avoid exclusion. The Golden Trolleys, also offered, encourage camaraderie amongst the passengers in an environment that is fun, safe, and friendly.
The Golden Detroit Metro Airport car service is in high demand during a football weekend due to the great number of Michigan alumni traveling back to their alma mater for not only the game, but also their cherished city, Ann Arbor. Golden offers tailored Ann Arbor packages to provide peace of mind for the alumni as their beloved city continues to flourish and there are new sites to experience during their football weekend reunion.
Golden offers shuttle services to other sporting events to better serve their clients and expand the realm of possible activities while a group of employees or good friends can enjoy the experience of the game without the stresses of parking and a designated driver.
