WASHINGTON, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With large crowds expected to visit Washington, DC for President-Elect Barack Obama's inauguration on Monday, January 21, International Limousine Service is preparing for lots of business – and lots of traffic! International Limousine, the largest privately owned limousine service in Washington, DC, has provided top-quality chauffeured services during the last ten inaugurations.

That means providing personalized, professional, and reliable service and a real working knowledge of how to get around town."
