Have you ever landed at the airport and had to wait forever for it to be your turn for a taxi? Have you ever stood at the curb on a street trying to flag down a cab? Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to get a lift, doubly so when you just finished a long day of flying. Airport transfers, hotel busses, and cabs aren’t always the most reliable way to get around.
So long cabs!
All of these scenarios are things that have happened to us all at one point or another, but now there is a solution so that you never have to be late or wait forever for a ride. A new player has entered the world of Airport Transfers. Blacklane was founded in 2011 and they have professional drivers that take thousands of people just like you to their destinations. Blacklane currently has drivers in Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and Winnipeg.
Blacklane makes it extremely easy to book a ride and you can do it at any time using their website, IOS app, or Android app. This means that you can look at your schedule for the upcoming week and make all of your travel arrangements at once. All that you need to do is enter your pickup and drop off locations along with the times for each ride that you need. Plus, you get to choose what type of car is used for your transport. A basic business class car can take you to meetings, while a first-class vehicle can be reserved for a romantic dinner.
You will receive two notifications for each ride that you book and they will arrive on the day of the ride. An email and text message will be sent to let you know that your car is on its way and another email and text message will be sent when your driver and car is at your pickup location.
You never need to worry about being charged more if your driver is early, because the time starts at the time that you booked. Every ride that you book conveniently includes a fifteen-minute waiting time for standard pickups and an hour waiting time if you are being picked up at the airport. Blacklane even tracks arrivals of trains and airplanes, so the drivers will know if you will be getting in ahead of schedule or if you will be later than anticipated. This ensures that your driver will be there waiting as soon as you arrive.
Become a driver and make money on the side
Blacklane is always looking for additional drivers in order to keep up with their clients’ busy schedules. They hire people who are licensed, insured, and customer service oriented. You will get to choose the hours that you work as well as what rides you accept. You will never need to fill out a journey form or pay a registration fee, plus you will never need to carry cash with you, because all transactions are done online. You will know exactly how much money you will receive for each ride before you accept it and Blacklane never subtracts any additional fees or taxes from that amount.
Signing up to drive for Blacklane is simple and all that you have to do is fill out the registration form on their website. Once that has been done, you will want to get familiar with their app and perform the test rides that they provide. As soon as Blacklane knows that you understand how to use their app, you will be allowed to begin accepting rides and as long as you continue to receive positive reviews from your clients, you will be allowed to continue as a driver.
Where can you drive for Blacklane?
You can find Blacklane in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, or Vancouver. Basically any of the bigger cities in Canada that have a large enough population to make it worth your time and effort. It’s a great alternative to signing up for uber or lyft.
