Over 300 new vehicles of 4 different kinds, all especially
and uniquely designed for this Fair, will be operated in a wide
variety of services, as briefly summarized below.
- For the more discriminating Fair-goer who wants privacy and
personalized service, the open-air and freedom from fixed-route
travel, the Escorter is the complete answer to his demands.
New as tomorrow's newspaper, this vehicle was especially designed
for this World's Fair! It seats up to four sight-seers comfortably
placed right up front where no obstruction can ever interfere
with the view. Behind them sits the smartly uniformed, highly
trained and informed driver-guide, who tells his guests what
they are seeing. They can dictate their own route, let the driver
suggest it, or choose one of several available pre-planned tours.
Roadways and walkways not available to the other vehicles may
be used by the Escorter.
The vehicle may be engaged as a taxi on a meter basis, or
by the hour or day, and its cost will be $9.00 per hour for two
passengers, with a surcharge of $1.00 for each additional passenger
up to four (surcharge applies on the first hour only). The Escorter
may be used for 20 minutes at a minimum charge of $3.00 for 2
passengers. For eight (8) consecutive hours a special rate of
$70.00 for the vehicle and driver-guide will apply. Long term
leases for a month, one season, or both seasons are available
by special arrangements.
