Transdev launches new Black Car Service in London23 May 2014
Transdev has announced the launch of Black Car Service, a new corporate car service for London. Starting with a fleet of 150 Black Volkswagen CCs, it is aimed at businesses looking for a discreet, unbranded service for their staff and clients.
Mike Tobin, Managing Director of Transdev’s London private hire operations says, "We’re launching Black Car Service in direct response to requests from our customers, and the market in general. Businesses wanted a professional, unbranded service to complement our existing greentomatocars and Trident Niven offerings - and that’s exactly what we’re delivering."
Using the same advanced technology that currently drives greentomatocars’ fleet of more than 500 vehicles, Black Car Service offers immediate response times of 15 minutes in central London and a personal, customer-focused approach. All cars come with free 4G wifi as standard, black leather interiors and professional drivers trained in customer services in Transdev’s training centre in Isleworth, West London. Fleet numbers are expected to rise to 300 by the end of the year, with further vehicles scheduled for delivery in 2015.
"Businesses have responded very positively to the new service," adds Tobin. "We have already signed up large clients who are delighted that we’re giving them a business class service without the price tag."
Black Car Service joins greentomatocars and Trident Niven to complete a trio of clearly defined, innovative Transdev brands in London. greentomatocars recently announced that it is expanding into the US and France, complementing Transdev’s global fleet operations, which encompasses thousands of cars across Europe and North America.
