Reinventing global professional driver services by reducing drivers' empty trips and offsetting rides' carbon footprints

Blacklane provides professional driver services including airport transfers, event management, and other related services. Blacklane serves travelers in more than 500 airports across more than 250 cities and 50 countries. The company reduces the number of empty rides for tens of thousands of drivers and offsets carbon emissions for all rides around the world.

Offers

Carbon-neutral rides

Description
Blacklane is the first ride service to introduce a global carbon-neutral program.

Blacklane offsets carbon emissions by funding a wind farm near Pune, India. Forty wind turbine generators produce electricity with no fossil fuel consumption. Blacklane partners with Carbon Footprint Ltd., the U.K. government’s provider to offset ministerial travel carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The company calculates Blacklane’s carbon emissions based on ride distances and vehicles in Blacklane’s fleet.

Global professional driver service

Description
Reducing drivers' empty rides worldwide

Blacklane's business model eliminates hundreds of thousands of empty chauffeur trips per year. The company partners with local professional driver businesses worldwide. These drivers transport local customers most often to and from airports and train stations -- but drive empty when not with these local customers. Drivers use premium vehicles, including models from Merceces-Benz, BMW, Audi, Cadillac, and increasingly, Tesla. Blacklane offers them global travelers who need professional driver services when they would otherwise be empty. The result is affordable rates, fewer wasted trips and a more efficient private transport industry.
