Places To Go: safe, affordable, professional transportation for greater New Bedford!


Places To Go was founded by New Bedford native Ed Pacheco in October 2011

How would it feel to be able to paint the town red with some of your best friends or family and not worry about the driving part? Go to a baseball game, concert or bachelor/bachelorette party? Head to the airport without having to arrange parking or make arrange to be dropped off?

Imagine no stress over traffic. No clamoring to find a designated driver. No arrangements. Just time focused on what’s important: having a good old fashioned time. To memories.

What if I told there is a business dedicated to just that? Right here in New Bedford?

Founded in October of 2011 and managed by New Bedford native Ed Pacheco, Places to Go, LLC is a transportation company that will take you and your group to and from any special event. They will drop you off at T.F. Green airport (Massport Recognized) or at port for the Fast Ferry. At Providence Amtrak Station. Take you and the gals or guys out to celebrate your friend’s last night as an unmarried person. Have an elderly or handicapped friend or family that needs transportation? Done.

Going beyond event that, Places To Go has some rather unique services: they offer some great rates on Tailgate Packages allowing you and the crew to focus all your energy on rooting for the Sox or Patriots. If you are a oenophile like me, they will take you up and down the local wine trails, letting you sample the region’s best wines on their premises. They are one of the sponsors of the Dunkin Donuts center and get great deals on select family venues there and also at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Rhode Island. Stay tuned to their special rates page to keep updated!

They offer all of these services throughout New Bedford, Dartmouth, Acushnet, Fairhaven and Providence, RI. Best of all is that they do it in style. The fleet of vehicles includes a number of 6 passenger caravans, a 7 passenger van, and a 10 passenger van – dubbed “Big Manny” in honor of Pacheco’s grandfather – which has been converted into a luxurious limovan that will make you feel like you feel like you are in an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous! It has a large-screen TV, Blu-Ray player, bar, coffee maker and more amenities! Currently you can enjoy 3 hours in their limovan (holds 8 people) for only $225!

Mr. Pacheco’s 15 years experience in the management and healthcare industries means you get professional, organized, and thorough service that trickles down to his staff. All the drivers are not only CPR certified, but go through a rigorous interview process: background and reference checks, a drug screening process, criminal and driving record checks.

The biggest kicker of all, is that you get this fantastic, professional service at a rate that won’t break the wallet or purse. Ed’s affordable rates allow anyone and everyone to enjoy what Places To Go has to offer. Receiving a Places To Go gift certificate from a loved one will of course make it even easier to afford!

Places To Go’s solid, reliable fleet of vehicles.

These factors are directly responsible for the skyrocketing success that Places To Go has experienced in less than 3 years. That sort of thing does not happen by accident. Read some of the many testimonials on the Facebook and website. Great service. Reliable, new vehicles. Backed up with a decade and a half experience at an affordable rate is clearly the recipe for a successful transportation business.

And that is just the beginning of big things, considering Place To Go has intentions of growing even further in the next 1-2 years as part of a strategic growth plan. Important to manager Ed Pacheco is that he gives back to the community that contributed to the success of Places To Go. He regularly gives back with an annual food drive and by supporting local, small businesses – proudly purchasing gas, supplies, and everything else needed to fuel his business right here in New Bedford.

So, if you have places to go and want to do so free of worry, you can have confidence that Places To Go will get you there and back home safely!
