History

How it all began ...

Windy City Limousine and Bus Worldwide was formed with a ‘Customer First’ mentality. Give great service at a reasonable price and clients will come. Well, have they ever. Windy City was started by a group of folks with over 100 years of experience in this industry. With the intent to grow into the largest company around, yet maintain the high quality standards demanded by our clients, we have accomplished both goals.

George Jacobs previously owned American Limousine, which dominated the Chicago market. After selling to a public company, he was unhappy with the decline of service, so 8 years later Windy City was born. Like in the movie “The Sting”, the finest employees and chauffeurs came back and wanted to be a part of this company. We are here for you and grateful that we have you as our Client.

Windy City Limousine is currently the Nation’s fastest growing ground transportation service. Windy City was the first ground transportation company to be on INC 5000’s list of fastest growing private companies the last 7 years. We offer our customers the most diversified and impressive fleet of vehicles in the industry, along with the area’s best chauffeurs. One of our very own chauffeurs was awarded the prestigious honor of “Chauffeur of the Year” by Limousine Digest. We were also awarded “Best Transportation Vendor” by Meetings and Events Magazine the last 7 years and running.  Wedding Wire has just named us as a 2016 “Couples Choice” winner.

Windy City currently owns and operates over 250 new vehicles. We have every type of vehicle from sedans to 56 passenger motor coaches, including SUVs, Limousines, 6, 14 and 24 passenger executive vans/buses, and luxury mini buses for 23 and 39 passengers.  We also have a wide range of party buses and vans for that special occasion.
