Downtown Gem
Shoppers and diners in downtown Naperville have a new local transport option from Belgio’s Chauffering: Za Car. Mike Belgio started the service in November to provide short-distance shuttles in and around the central business district.

“Right now we have three Polaris Gem vehicles—they are all electric with heat and real working windows,” says Belgio. “It’s more of a car, with restrictions on the speed limit of 25 miles per hour.”

Za Car service boundaries run south of Ogden Avenue, west of Naper Boulevard, north of 75th Street and east of Rickert Drive. Rates in the immediate downtown area are $1 per person; the next two zones are $3 and $5, depending on distance.

Four Za Car drivers currently work Monday through Thursday, 4:00 to 9:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 4:00 to 11:00 p.m. and Sunday 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Belgio is hoping to expand as needed. Text or call 815.609.9705 for a ride.
