Lyes Bouattour arrived in Los Angeles, California, four years ago as an investor. Now he is the proud owner of a professional driver company and has earned himself recognition as Blacklane’s Driver of the Month!
Lyes moved to Los Angeles after living in Tunis, Tunisia and Paris, France. Before moving, he worked in IT and the French Stock Exchange. He didn’t know L.A., nor did he have anyone to show him the ropes. But he went with the intention of investing, and invest he did! He bought cars, hired drivers and started a professional driver company.
Lyes has a busy life, driving 5000 miles (8000 km) a month. He finds the long distances in L.A. something special about the city. Of course, he can only confirm that the traffic is some of the worst in the world.
We asked Lyes what he thought made customers rate him so highly: “I think that customers are coming to L.A. because it’s a movie city. Here in L.A., all the young men and women dream to be an actor. If you welcome the Blacklane passengers like famous VIPs and provide the best service, then they will give you the best rating.” We also think it helps that he speaks three languages: English, French and Arabic.
He also has recommendations for all ages. For families: Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags, the zoo, LEGOLAND, SeaWorld. For business travelers: restaurants. For adult holiday makers: museums and hot spots like Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu and Beverly Hills.
Thanks for the great recommendations and the fantastic work, Lyes! We are proud to work together!
Blacklane is available in over 250 cities around the world. Make sure to check if we’re in the city you’re next traveling to here!
