About Blacklane

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

Blacklane was founded by Jens Wohltorf and Frank Steuer in 2011. As frequent travelers, they saw a need for a single global professional chauffeur service. Their vision was a smarter way to book and manage rides — something affordable, reliable, and efficient. Blacklane has grown from a two-man operation in Berlin to an international crew of over 300 people with satellite offices in Los Angeles, Dubai, and Brisbane.
