An Ode to Blacklane's 300th City


BERLIN, Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is an ode to celebrate Blacklane's expansion to its 300th city around the world.

300 cities for Blacklane
Limerick, Ireland is Blacklane's 300th city for global chauffeur service. The 300 cities -- including 100 in the Asia-Pacific region -- span 60 countries around the world.

There once was a chauffeur business
That expanded with particular swiftness.
To announce its new city,
Blacklane got witty
And showed the world it's ambitious.

Today's city is number 300.
"What could it be?" people thundered.
Would it be in Korea?
Perhaps Tanzania?
Yet because of this poem, no one wondered.

Blacklane's 300th is Irish.
Our service worldwide is stylish.
To end the shtick,
It's Limerick,
And below is a gift you'll cherish.

Book your Blacklane chauffeur today.
We'll give you no reason to delay.
We'll make you a deal,
An offer, a steal:
20 percent off on this day.*

Each ride is full of benefits
That fill your trip with excellence,
Like meet-and-greet
And free child seats.
Our chauffeurs are service specialists.

Here it is, your voucher code,
For next time you're on the road.

Of the website or app you can download.
