While the numbers are hard to pin down, the reality is drivers don't make much when factoring out overhead costs.
SHELTON, Conn. -- OneWayLimo.com (OWL), a luxury transportation brokeragecompany servicing all major cities on the East Coast, will be exhibiting Nov. 5-7 at the LCT-NLA Show East at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. (Booth #38).
“We have had a great year expanding our service to limousine operators from Maine to Florida, and we are looking forward to further growing our affiliate partners,” said Joe Salemme, President and Founder of OneWayLimo, in a press release. “Our goal is to put ‘butts in seats’ through our Empty Leg System technology which is capable of filling the empty legs of our affiliate partners. We are aligning ourselves to be the technical solution that allows livery companies to claim rides in real time, fill their empty legs, and increase revenue.”
OneWayLimo is the first-mover to create a secondary market in the lucrative luxury limo space. Although the livery black car business in the U.S. is growing overall, almost 90% of all bookings for a luxury limo to the airport or to a major destination result in the car being empty on one leg of the journey. Unlike car rentals, national limousine companies don't exist, and margins regionally have been declining due to ridesharing popularity.
