Colonial Transportation

Make sure part of your New Year's Plans include calling Colonial Taxi and planning a way to get to & from your destination safely. Taking a cab or limo with friends will ensure that you get home safely, and do not risk getting a DWI/DUI, or your life.

Drinking & Driving is dangerous for you, and other motorists, so if you plan on indulging this holiday, call Colonial Transportation to get you where you need to go safely, and in style. The cost of driving drunk is far higher than the cost of a cab.

Here's to a Safe & Happy New Year's.
