GroundLink, the New York-based, tech-enabled black car service, has launched Hamptons Private Driver, a new, scheduled car service that will operate fixed-priced transportation between New York City and The Hamptons. Customers located in NYC will be able to easily pre-book door-to-door transport to and from the Hamptons. One-way, per-person rates start as low as $58 (based on six passengers riding in an SUV). The service will be available throughout the summer via the company’s award-winning mobile app, at http://www.groundlink.com/hamptons, or by calling the company’s 24/7 reservations line at 1 -855-231-9684.
Hamptons Private Driver is competitively priced according to the vehicle category selected and the destination. Transport from New York City in a three-person luxury sedan to/from Southampton will be priced at $249 (each way) and at $275 (each way) to/from Montauk and East Hampton. The six-person, SUV-class vehicle is priced at $349 (each way) to/from Southampton and $375 (each way) to/from Montauk and East Hampton. Tips, tolls, taxes and gratuity are additional, but are shown in the final price prior to booking. Unlike with on-demand services or other black car services, Hamptons Private Driver customers will never be subjected to surge prices or increased pricing during peak periods.
GroundLink’s user-friendly app and website allow customers to easily select their pick up and drop off locations for Hamptons Private Driver using nearby airports, venues, addresses or their ride history. Customers can also track their car and driver from the time the driver is dispatched until they are dropped off at their destination, using the GroundLink mobile app or a link provided in SMS car location alerts sent to them.
The launch of Hamptons Private Driver is in response to GroundLink customers requesting private car service directly from their office or home to their destination of choice in the Hamptons. The service provides a private alternative to coach or train service. With Hamptons Private Driver, riders can leave the driving to a fully-insured and professional driver, and busy executives can work en route and not have to endure the stress of driving in traffic. This service is also a scheduled alternative to on-demand, shared-economy providers.
“With our new Hamptons Private Driver service, consumers don’t have to chance their precious weekend getaway or summer vacation time with an on-demand service in hopes that a car might be available. They can schedule their ride exactly when they wish to leave,” said Liz Carisone, CEO of GroundLink. “They also won’t have to deal with the unpleasant sticker shock of surge pricing during high demand summer weekends and holidays.”
In addition to the luxury sedan and SUV-class vehicles, Hamptons Private Driver also offers the option of travel in a VIP Sedan, Mercedes, or Van. Pricing of these class vehicles will vary according to availability.
