LOS ANGELES -- Your Car Our Driver is one of a handful of Southern California companies that will drive you in your own car. They are an offshoot of traditional chauffeur services, giving clients with high-end vehicles all the perks of a driver but without the limo or town car.

In Southern California, where image is everything and car culture rules, wealthy folks such as Hyatt are revving up a cottage industry catering to people who don't want a full-time driver, but who need rides to the airport, say, or in this case, a concert. The region is home to companies including BeMyDD, Private Chauffeur and Private Driver L.A.
