• A Division of Million Services Limousine, a 5-Star Rated Essential Transportation Service

Essential Businesses during the 2020 San Francisco Shelter-in-Place (“SIP”) Order for the Coronavirus / COVID-19 Pandemic

Many businesses are limited or closed while some remain open as “essential”.   This means that you are either able to operate one of these types of businesses or you are able to travel to one of these businesses due to their essential nature.    

If you require “essential travel and transportation” to take advantage of the services offered by one of these businesses, please click here

ETS is ideal for:

  • Corporate executives and managers who wish to be transported to and from their “essential business”
  • Government officials who need safe transportation services
  • Individuals who wish to be comfortably and safely conveyed to one of these authorized companies
  • Residents of the San Francisco Bay Area who wish to not have to deal with the paperwork, the authorities or the hassles while feeling relaxed and secure in our clean vehicles.
  • Foreign visitors who do not know the area or who do not wish to take it upon themselves to navigate the city’s lockdown requirements (and its streets)

Business, government and life should not stop completely and ETS is here to make sure that you’re free to take care of your business while we take care of the transportation services.

Our vehicles are all late-model luxury vans, sedans, executive buses and limousines.  Click here for our inventory of vehicles. (link to vehicles page)
