Toronto’s Premier Limousine Company
Olympic Limousine’s humble beginnings of over 15 years ago in Toronto is a testament to the fact that hard work, dedication, attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction pay off. Our journey begins in the 1980’s when the first mile we ever drove was a Maple Leaf taxi cab in the City of Toronto.
Over the years our ever increasing taxi business brought us into contact with many discerning clientele who demanded more than what a taxi cab could offer. They desired a cleaner, more luxurious and safer mode of transportation that only a Lincoln Town Car limousine could offer. However, City of Toronto transportation licensing rules did not permit that type of vehicle to be used as a taxi. The solution: establish a Toronto Limo Service as a completely separate entity from our thriving taxi business. Hence Olympic Limousine is born.
In its early days, Olympic Limousine started out as Sedan service doing daily chartered Airport transfers to and from Toronto’s most prestigious hotels and business centers. In the late 1990’s limousine service in Toronto was no longer viewed as means of transportation that is only limited to upper echelon of society. Limousine service was starting to gain more acceptance. And consequentially, so was stretch limousine service. This opportunity was the segway Olympic Limousine needed to enter the luxury stretch limousine market.
In those days, Transport Canada limited the type and size of limousine allowed on Canadian roads. The vehicle of choice in those days was (now considered traditional) the 10 Passenger Lincoln Town Car. Still widely used today, and a work horse in the industry, Olympic Limousine continues to operate a couple of New Lincoln Town Car stretches for special events and our corporate clientele. The 2000’s ushered in the stretch SUVs and their apparent craze that still exists to this day. We were a pioneer in chauffeuring some of the first stretch SUVs to hit the pavement on Canadian roads. The Ford Excursion was the order of the day at the time. Still restricted by Canadian Transportation laws, capacity was limited to 10-12 passengers. Its design was very crude and basic by today’s standards, however it was every party goers dream! A few years later finally ushered in what every high end transportation service was waiting for, a true luxury stretch limousine SUV: The 14 passenger Lincoln Navigator stretch!…a five star hotel on wheels. Again we were one of the first to import this marvel of limousine engineering. Bursting with luxury and style at every seam, it continues to lead the way as the most desirable of all vehicles.
Today we operate three New Lincoln Navigators in our limousine fleet and two more new Navigators are on order. Olympic Limousine adheres to two rules when purchasing such vehicles: 1) we always buy new stretch limousines and stretch SUVs, and 2) we always buy from the best coach builders. Thus ensuring limited or no downtime, while maintaining the highest possible level of safety. Conversely, we ahere to two very different rules when hiring chauffeurs: 1) we always hire old chauffeurs with years of experience, and 2) chauffeurs with excellent safety records.
Olympic Limousine’s foray into the Limo Bus & Party Bus market in 2005 was driven by the rise in popularity within the Toronto Limo Bus industry. Operating a limo bus with its respective challenges – challenges that we met head on. Today Olympic Limousine is prospecting to determine the viability of adding scheduled Limo Bus service to and from Niagara Falls and Pearson International Airport. In addition to Limo Bus Service, we are also in the process of establishing a Mississauga office to fulfill the need for luxury transportation services in Canada’s fastest growing city.
