Blacklane, a global chauffeur service, announced that its city-to-city offering will expand by 98 new routes in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Saudi Arabia, the UK, the UAE and Thailand, bringing the total number of city-to-city routes to 127. The company is active in 50 countries.
The new routes include connections between key metropolitan areas such as London and Manchester, England; New York and Atlantic City in the US; and Rome and Florence, Italy. All rides have a fixed fare including taxes, tolls and tips, guaranteeing a transparent pricing model.
The expansion of its city-to-city services, said the announcement, is part of the company’s continued growth efforts, which focus on diversifying its products as well as exploring new markets. Blacklane’s product range includes airport transfers, city-to-city services and on-demand rides in metropolitan areas, as well as hourly bookings.
All rides and routes are 100% carbon neutral, as the company offsets all carbon emissions from all trips. In addition, said the announcement, Blacklane’s services are an alternative to short-haul flights and offer cost savings, as the seats can be shared among up to four individuals. Guests, said the announcement, have the added convenience of a reliable schedule where they travel on their own time and are not bound to a fixed time. In addition, said the announcement, the journey is seamless from door to door, so passengers don’t have to worry about the first or last leg of their journey.
Dr. Jens Wohltorf, CEO, said the company continues to accelerate to reach its growth goals “by successfully combining highly personalized services with advanced technology platforms.” He said Blacklane is “strategically investing in important and popular long-distance routes across several markets to diversify its business model and expand into new sectors.”
