Illinois Operation Celebrates 50 Years

Posted on August 5, 2016

WINFIELD, Ill. -- Founded by Ray Hiltunen and Bert Homan out of a basement in Glen Ellyn in 1966, West Suburban Limousine began with a handful of vehicles handling a few dozen trips per week. It quickly grew, and now more than 10 million people have used the car service over the years, with a 99.7 percent satisfaction level.

The company is still owned by the Hiltunen family, with the third generation now helping run the business from its Winfield headquarters. The company employs 30 full and part time people, plus works with more than 100 independent contractors.

    If they made at least 54 trips a day, every single day, with 10 passengers each trip for the past 50 years with an average price of $100 per trip (excluding gratuity, etc.), they would have made about $98.5 MILLION DOLLARS. That's on the low end. I think they are full of sht, and they are trying to manipulate search engines with extra links from shitty press-release websites.
