Competition in the U.S. market for limousine pick-ups has shifted up a gear with the acquisition of Limos.com by iCARS, a startup in San Francsico that aims to be the typical corporate travel manager’s go-to service for arranging ground transportation.

iCARS is going up against Blacklane (which has raised $42 million), Groundlink (which has raised $20 million and was acquired this week by Marcou Transportation Group), and Deem (which has raised hundreds of millions for its various incarnations).
