Do you know the latest new cities where you can take a Blacklane? And how to make money when you recommend us to your friends?

For those interested in working at Blacklane, you’ll want to read the two press articles below. Our CEO speaks about integrating into Berlin both culturally and practically, with stories about English vs. German and finding a flat. We have more than 230 employees here and are looking for more. Read on for more information!


  • Are you headed to Saudi Arabia? Then you will be pleased to know that Blacklane launched in Medina and Dammam !
  • Did you know you can earn 10 USD/GBP/EUR for each friend you refer? At the bottom of your ride confirmation email, there is a refer-a-friend code. Share it with friends and they save 10 USD/GBP/EUR off their first ride. Once they ride, you also get a 10 USD/GBP/EUR voucher code. Win, win!
