An On-Demand Service That Follows The Rules

Posted on February 17, 2015

PETALUMA, Calif. -- At a time when ride-booking companies like Uber are shaking up the limousine and taxi industries, Pure Luxury Transportation is launching its own on-demand car service.

What sets BlinkCar apart from other ride-booking services, also known as Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), is that its drivers aren’t independent contractors using their private cars, but  trained company employees driving Pure Luxury’s fleet vehicles. The sedans and SUVs are fully insured, regularly inspected and cleaned each day, said Pure Luxury owners Gary and Jennifer Buffo.
