History of Success

Pipeline Transportation is a true family business with a personal history. James spent his childhood in Hawaii, the name “Pipeline” is in homage to his Mom.

Pipeline Transportation began as a one Prius Taxi Service in 2007. Through hard work, James and his wife Tatum have grown Pipeline’s vehicle fleet to 9 cars including Luxury Vehicles and Party Buses. James and Tatum have known each other since the 2nd grade. “Life” steered them in separate directions for quite sometime but miraculously brought them back together when they were both single parents raising two kids each. Tatum married Jimmy, traded in her car for a Toyota Van (Pipeline vehicle #2), and off they went.

Pipeline Transportation won both the 2017 & 2018 Readers’ Choice Best of Santa Barbara Limo Service Awards. James and Tatum’s relentless work ethic keeps them at the top of the “Black Car” transportation business in SB and surrounding areas.

They enjoy long-standing and close relationships with all the area’s Resorts and Hotels, including the Four Seasons Biltmore, Doubletree, Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort, San Ysidro Ranch, and El Encanto.
