About Blacklane

Over 100 Blacklane employees stand in the Berlin hub’s courtyard, smiling and waving at the camera.

Blacklane has reinvented ride services by connecting travelers with its global crew of chauffeurs, taking the stress out of travel since 2011. Founded by Jens Wohltorf and Frank Steuer, Blacklane created a smarter way to book and manage rides — something affordable, reliable, and efficient. Over the past decade, Blacklane has grown from a two-man operation in Berlin to an international, award-winning crew of over 300 people with hubs in Los Angeles, Dubai, and Brisbane.
