I don't have one bad thing to say about this company!! I would highly recommend them! They were on time, extremely professional, and very patient with us (our driver had to wait 10 -15 minutes for us at the end of the night). Prior to our wedding, they were very responsive to emails and phone calls. We would def use them again for other events!

One of the better values we could find, and very flexible and professional. I appreciated that they confirmed my plans by phone and by email before the event, and sent me the drivers' names and phone numbers too. The only issue was that our wedding was at Fort Belvoir, which allows access through only one gate for visitors without a military/DOD ID card, and despite my having the gate name and instructions on the order throughout the process, both drivers attempted to enter the other gate. Military bases are tricky though, so I'm not taking off many points for that.

I hired Fleet to provide a 55 passenger bus, a 24 passenger bus, and 3 sedans for my wedding. The sales rep was generally helpful, and Fleet transportation had the best price among the vendors I evaluated. The day before the wedding, they called to confirm times and sent information for individual drivers. Unfortunately, execution on the day of the wedding was very poor. Both the 55 passenger and the 24 passenger buses got lost getting from the church to the reception site. Guests did not arrive until around 5:30 for a reception that started at 5:00 pm. (Dinner was to start at 6:30 pm.) The driver that drove my wife and me to the reception was not waiting outside the church but was parked elsewhere so we had to call him. He got there quickly after I called but the last thing I wanted to be doing on my wedding day was fumbling on my iPhone to find a number to call the driver. The driver then proceeded to take Route 1 (ceremony was in DC and reception in Alexandria at Woodlawn), which he claimed was just as fast as I-395/95. But anyone who knows the area knows that dealing with those lights on Route 1 on a Saturday is not faster than I-395/95. This resulted in us also not getting to the reception until after 5:30 pm. Lastly, the driver who picked up me and my wife at the end of the night called for directions because he too got lost. Lastly, I was charged an additional $300 for bus clean-up (let's just say one of the guest had a little too much to drink). I have no problems with paying for the clean-up, but do think it was excessive. May sure you comparison shop on this point since things like this do happen at such celebratory events. Overall, the experience was not great.

Fleet provided transportation for the bridal party as well as out-of-town guests. From the beginning, Joe was extremely responsive in adjusting timelines and vehicles needed based on my changing information (number of guests, locations for drop-off, etc.). Their prices were very competitive, and I liked that I had until 2 weeks before the event to make changes to the terms (vehicles needed and hours). The drivers were on time and professional. All of the guests arrived on time from the hotel, and the last shuttle waited beyond the contracted end time to ensure everyone had a ride back to the after party and hotel.

My one issue with Fleet related to the routes that drivers take to their destinations. The first ride of the day was the bride and bridesmaids' limo ride from the hotel to the venue. The driver used his GPS to navigate there, and what should have been a 15 min straight shot down the GW Parkway turned into a 30min round-about drive through random parts of Alexandria. A few minutes into that route, I told him he should have taken the Parkway, but he insisted that the GPS knew best. Having driven to venue no less than a dozen time in all types of traffic, I know he was wrong. As a result, we were late to the venue and had to skip some of the pictures we had planned. I recommend that drivers either 1) research the route beforehand on Google Maps or 2) do a test drive at some point. He had 2 more rides to provide in the limo, and I insisted that he take my way. According to my groom, he did so, but we were already behind schedule at that point. I'm not sure if the guest shuttles took the right route or not.

Overall, Fleet did a great job on my wedding transportation, but I would recommend that drivers not solely rely on GPS to find their destinations.

Fleet transportation did my transportation for the wedding day. I found that many transportation companies have long minimum times, but Fleet was very flexible. They did transportation to and from the ceremony and then left and came back to take us away from the reception. They prices were very reasonable as well. The driver was on time, very professional and flexible. We ended up leaving the reception nearly an hour after we were supposed to, but he never got impatient and was nothing but kind to us. I would recommend them to brides.

I hired Fleet Transportation to run a shuttle between the hotel and church in Old Town Alexandria, as we had a number of out-of-town guests. They were great to work with. Showed up on time, drove the exact route I asked them to (avoiding the back-up of King Street). I had them running loops between the hotel and church, giving the guests different time options to catch the shuttle. It worked like a charm!

The contract was easy and even though we paid for a 4 hour minimum, but only used about 3, it was a very fair rate and well worth the money for the ease.

Fleet Transportation was fine for our wedding, considering that we only needed the ride for taking photos. The minibus was clean, air conditioned, and showed up on schedule, but I can’t say much else to recommend them. Despite giving them a list of the exact locations and a Google map, my new husband had to sit up in the front and talk the driver through most of the directions. The driver kept trying to plug in the directions to a GPS, which for national landmarks in DC doesn’t really work (the Capitol does not have an address!). Then once the wedding party was dropped off at the reception location, the driver was supposed to pick up people at the hotel (one block away) and drop them off at the reception (again, one block away). Instead, the driver took them five blocks away from the location, and only stopped when my parents asked her where she was going. People who walked from the hotel made it before people on the minibus. I would suggest having a printed map with a route you can give to the driver as you get on the minibus. Overall, they were fine. But we didn’t like that we had to navigate some of the places even when we took the time to write them out and make a Google map the week before the event. You may want to put some float in your schedule in case there is a problem.
