About DPV

About DPV Transportation

We transform ground transportation to empower companies and communities to move forward.

Move forward now.

Our values drive us.

Ride different.

Every DPV vehicle is a novelty. Every passenger is royalty. Every team member is family. And each DPV ride is consistent, yet they’re all unique. Our services are always designed around your needs. But that’s not all that makes us different. Our systems continually set us apart; DPV Transportation moves beyond dependability to accountability.

Innovate everything.

It takes more than the most professional chauffeurs to create efficiencies as well as experiences. That’s why we’re not only chauffeurs; we’re innovators. We embrace change, and pride ourselves on our proactiveness. DPV Transportation employs the latest technology to ensure total safety, complete comfort, and the greatest experience possible.

Impact everyone.

We remember where we came from to reach where we’re headed; as a minority-owned business, DPV Transportation offers people from different backgrounds new opportunities. With each trip, we impact every individual involved and the larger groups we serve. We not only give rides to people who need them, we also give back to communities that need it.

Encompass excellence.

Experience a personalized service that has been years-in-the-making. We’ve accumulated a wealth of professional chauffeurs, advanced tools, and late-model vehicles. DPV Transportation continues to compile expertise and resources, to achieve excellence because good enough is never enough.

Reach your destination.

You can’t accomplish anything until you get moving. Every trip we embark on fuels the next one. Our unparalleled resilience empowers us to overcome even the toughest roadblocks and empower others to thrive. When people leave DPV vehicles, they take the experience with them, and make a greater difference upon their arrival.

From local van to global company.

From local van to global company.

It all began with a single van. A decade and a half later, that van has turned into a global ground transportation company—with a fleet of late-model vehicles and hundreds of employees. Yet it remains the same personal service at heart. At only 17 years old, the young, founding entrepreneur started out driving athletic teams to win games across state lines. Now, his company drives the success of corporations across the country and executives around the world. As a student and a young father, Daniel Perez trained himself to pivot for success. He became an innovator, to be there for communities in need, as well as his own family. Daniel partnered with his brother, Jose, to help DPV Transportation make an even greater impact on the industry and the world. Through revolutionary corporate shuttle bus services, on-demand drivers, charter buses, and more, DPV set out to change every facet of ground transportation, embracing safety and leveraging technology at every step.

Make your rides matter.

Make your rides matter.

For DPV, change goes beyond the industry and into the communities that require it. With a focus on global change, DPV builds opportunities for minority communities and homes for those who need them most in third world countries. With a long, shared history of resilience, DPV drives corporations and communities forward.
