Ridesharing apps, such as Uber and Lyft, don't always provide the best experience and are quite expensive for long trips, so I'm looking for a personal driver who can provide a great experience at a great price.
I sometimes am looking for a ride to or from the airport. I can pay you via PayPal or in cash at the end of the ride.
Overall, I'm looking for a safe, healthy, quiet, reliable, enjoyable experience.
I'm looking for a driver who's sober and well rested, drives well and safely, and pays attention (and doesn't get distracted, eg, by their cell phone or radio).
I value clean air because I'm super health-conscious. Therefore:
I'm looking for a driver who doesn't smoke/vape/dip/etc because I'd rather not be exposed to thirdhand smoke.
I'm looking for a driver who doesn't have air fresheners in their car. I don't like air fresheners because they can (1) "emit and generate a range of potentially hazardous air pollutants that can impair air quality" (according to Ten questions concerning air fresheners and indoor built environments by Anne Steinemann) and (2) mask smells (some of which may helpfully alert you that the air you're breathing is polluted).
I'm looking for a driver who's conscious of and skilled at maintaining good air quality inside the car. Some ways to do this are to avoid tailgating vehicles, especially trucks, so as to not take in their exhaust, to turn on recirculation mode (for only a few minutes at a time to avoid CO2 buildup) during polluted road conditions, and to open the windows briefly during clear road conditions to let in some fresh air. I suggest reading the article Clearing the air (inside your car) for more info and suggestions.
I'm looking for a driver with a quiet car mainly because I want to protect my ears and my sanity. Also, I typically prefer silence over music. Sometimes I may want to listen to a song or two or three, but after a while of listening to music, I usually like to turn it off and take a break because it can get to be too much for me and start to feel like noise pollution. If anything, while sometimes I may like to turn up a good song, I prefer to listen to music at low volume in order to protect my ears. So yeah, we could listen to music or podcasts or whatever, as long as it's at low volume, and I'll let you know if I feel like taking a break. I'm also willing to chat if you'd like.
I'm looking for a driver who's reliable and punctual.
I'm looking for a driver who's kind, friendly, and fun to be around.
If you're interested in driving me to or from the airport, feel free to contact me by email. We could set up a brief interview over the phone, over Skype, or in person.
