New affordable luxury car service in Tampa Bay

Posted: Updated:

Whether it's a trip to the airport or a night out on a town, a Tampa Bay businessman is offering luxury car service at a price that in many cases rivals cab fare. The hope is to make luxury transportation affordable so people think twice before getting behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol.

"Florida is touch on DUI'S, especially in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. The judges here don't fool around," said Ken Lucci, the owner of Flex Sedans.

Lucci rolled out a fleet of Ford Flex crossovers that can transport anywhere from four to six passengers. It's a members only service that cost $19.95 a month, and with two hours notice you have 24/7 access to basic Flex Sedans, or even one tricked out with a flat screen television and Champaign holder for a fancy night out on the town.

Lucci is the founder of Ambassador Limousines and realized many people can't afford the luxury of a limo waiting for them outside of restaurants, concerts and charity events. With the Flex Sedans service, the driver will drop you off at an event and come back and pick you up when you’re ready to head home.

"Let's says you have 7 o' clock reservations in Tampa and you live in St. Petersburg," Lucci explained. "A Flex Driver will pick you up and drop you off, and come back whenever you decide."

A one way trip across the bay would cost as low as $45 and because the sedans can fit up to six people many Flex members chip in for a night out on the town.

Flex Sedans has been in operation for only six months and already is pushing 300 members. Every sedan comes with access to satellite radio and the free use of an iPad.
