THE START OF CVME
In 2015 navy veteran David Gonzales saw the need for the Coachella Valley to have a local funeral escort service. Most importantly, to have the majority of the riders based in the Coachella Valley. So acting upon those thoughts, Mr. Gonzales, along with CJ Graves formed US Motor Patrol and started doing funeral escorts. The business quickly grew beyond funeral escorting, to other local events. At the start of 2018, to better reflect the business's service area, the name of the business was changed to Coachella Valley Motor Escort. The services have grown to include funeral escort, corporate and private events, concerts and sporting events, and comprising of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic control.
ABOUT THE BUSINESS AND IT'S RIDERS
Coachella Valley Motor Escort is a scheduling and billing service. Each of the riders apply their professional services as independent contractors. The CVME team of escorts is made up of local United States Veterans, retired law enforcement and riding enthusiasts.
