Your New Designated Driver – Lilybug

Lilybug

If you’ve ever been through the share house shuffle, the foggy morning after a night of partying when you’re trying to remember what car you left where and need to retrieve before it gets a ticket, you will be glad to learn about the newest designated driver — Lilybug.

When you call Lilybug, they send out a fully insured driver on a folding scooter who meets you, folds up the scooter, places it in a bag, and loads it in your trunk then drives you home in your own car, using the scooter to get to the next client.  No driving while impaired and you wake up in your own bed (next to whom is up to you) with your car ready for that early tee time.

The company was founded in 2006 to provide a safe service inspired by the death of a dear friend Lily who was tragically killed by a drunk driver.  Through the Lilybug Foundation they donate a portion of their profits to MADD and help families of children hit by drunk drivers.

Operating throughout the Hamptons from Westhampton to Amagansett to Shelter Island, the service starts at $30 depending on your destination and can also be booked on an hourly basis of $60 per hour(which they recommend).  Although you can give them a spontaneous late night booty call, it helps to plan ahead of time as they often are booked by mid week for the weekend.  And for those of you whose trunk is your mobile home, clear out space so the scooter can fit.  It’s about the size of five stacked pizza boxes, 2.5ft x 1ft x 1.5 feet when folded.

You can also book the Lilybug service to be at your next party or event to get everyone home safely.

Also look out for Lilybug’s car cleaning service where they come to you with their eco-friendly products.
