Today at the Global Business Travel Association’s annual conference in Boston, GroundLink, a global black car service that combines 24/7 customer service with leading technology to deliver safe, reliable transportation, announced the introduction of Ride Now®, an app-based service that allows customers to obtain a ride in 20 minutes or less. The new service is available starting today.

Prices for a ride to Boston Logan from downtown Boston start as low as $51 when booked using Ride Now.
