ARCOLA - Nicole Osadchuk and her father Armand felt there was a need for a shuttle or limousine service in the Carlyle-Arcola area.
The family was raised in the Carlyle area. Nicole Osadchuk and her two sisters attended school in Carlyle and Arcola.
Armand Osadchuk drove a semi-truck for 40 years, with the first 15 years spent hauling across Canada, and the remaining 25 years in the Prairie provinces.
Nicole Osadchuk decided to follow in her father's footsteps by acquiring her class 1A driver's licence to drive rigs. She stayed closer to home for nine years, hauling in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Living in Arcola with her spouse, she became the manager of Buddy’s Pub last June. This was something completely different for her but she has enjoyed the opportunity.
With driving in their blood and a service they felt was needed, on Jan. 24 they announced the opening of Good to Go Limousine.
Still needing to get organized, Osadchuk said they want to offer day trips for seniors to Estevan, Weyburn and Regina. This is what they would like to start with for trips.
Osadchuk said for people who need to get to appointments or want to visit family, this will be a great alternative.
Once routes are planned out, they will be announced. Their service will not be limited to a few trips and they hope to continuously add to their trips.
The chevy shuttle will hold 15 passengers with ease and will be a great asset to the area.
Osadchuk said her dad always felt bad watching people walking home from events in the cold and wanted to offer a service that would help.
Wedding parties have already been booked for the shuttle and they have been in demand, but still have some vacancies.
The service is not limited to groups. Individuals can ask for a ride as well if need be.
Feeling they need to support impaired driving laws, they will offer rides from events or bars to take people home safely.
The shuttle can also be used as a party bus and has plenty of room to make it comfortable.
Their office is located in Arcola, but the services will take a person to where they need to go.
In the future, a limousine might be added to the fleet, but in the meantime, they will see how this service works.
