Ronald Peña has been a professional driver for 11 years. He speaks English (100% level), Spanish (100% level) and Portuguese (50% level). Meeting people from different cultures is what he likes most of all about being a driver. Upon entering his car, Ronald will ask you what he can do to make your ride as comfortable as possible. His favorite place in New York is Central Park and he can recommend the best Colombian restaurant in town?an eatery in Queens called Cositas Ricas that serves delicious Bandejas Paisa (a dish of red beans, rice and churrasco beef). Ronald most often drives passengers to airports, the HighLine, Wall Street, Park Avenue and Times Square.
He renews his defensive driving course every 2-3 years. If it?s raining or snowing, Ronald slows down. To avoid traffic tie-ups, Ronald looks for alternate routes, especially if a client is in a hurry. Ronald offers WiFi to his clients right away and likes to build rapport but if they wish to be quiet he is very respectful of that. For airport pickups, Ronald will have flight information and track its arrival and always searches addresses and plans ahead.
Every day, Ronald has his 2015 GMC Yukon Excel washed and he dusts the inside. He has water, Kleenex and coffee-flavored candies available for his clients. His car has climate control, leather captain?s seating for easy exiting and a BOSE sound system.
Ronald enjoys being a family man. He loves spending time with his wife, two sons and his daughter and attending big family get-togethers. Soccer and playing guitar are two of his favorite things to do in his spare time.
