NEW YORK – 7 December 2020 – Travelers going to and from major U.S. cities can enjoy private chauffeured rides at the industry’s best possible flat rates. Blacklane, the global chauffeur service, cut average prices for 14 routes by 30 percent.

The groundbreaking fares beat legacy limousine services and ride-hailing’s “black” options. Blacklane will discount more routes on an ongoing basis.

Blacklane’s new fares cover California, Florida, the Midwest, the Northeast and Texas. Door-to-door transfers may start and end in cities or suburbs.

Blacklane travelers avoid health concerns of train trips, short-haul flights and ride-hailing. Guests enjoy private sanitized spaces and zero chauffeur contact.

“In every normal year, holiday and winter travel already comes with a lot of chaos and stress. But with this year’s challenges, travelers are trying to relieve these burdens and seek new ways to reclaim peace of mind,” said Dr. Jens Wohltorf, Blacklane’s CEO and co-founder. “Blacklane’s intercity rides give guests the safety, space and comfort they need for low-stress long-distance trips.”
