Olympic Institute Limousines is famous for providing luxurious pick-up and delivery services for sports fans throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and beyond.
And there is no bigger day of the year for us than the running of the Kentucky Derby.
This last May, race day came around and we had our fleet ready. It can be a daunting job to schedule all the cars and routes.
Some folks come to town a day early and stay in downtown hotels. They just want rides from places like the Four Points Sheridan or the Crowne Plaza to the racetrack, a quick run.
Still others fly into SDF the morning of the race and plan on leaving that night. Depending on the traffic, there are several routes we can use to get from the airport to Churchill Downs. Any kind of breakdown or delay represents a first-class disaster.
Just such a thing happened that morning when one of our fleet drivers got a blowout on the perimeter road on his way to the airport. Changing a tire on a limousine is not for the faint of heart. It is a tricky matter and requires special tools.
That’s why we were so lucky to have Googled “Towing Services Near Me” and discovered who else but Towing Services Near Me Louisville themselves.
