Car service platform GroundLink was scheduled to cease operations on Aug. 31, citing “the catastrophic effects Covid-19 has had on the global economy and the travel industry,” according to an email obtained by Busines Travel News (BTN).
The platform, founded in 2003, is automatically transferring client information to Dav El/BostonCoach, including contact details, travel history, future rides booked, and payment information. As of Sept. 1, clients will be able to sign into the Dav El/BostonCoach website and app with their GroundLink usernames and passwords, according to the email.
“The economic slowdown and tremendous reduction in global business travel has hit a lot of companies hard, and unfortunately GroundLink was among them,” a GroundLink spokesperson said. “GroundLink has many retail and corporate clients who have expressed their disappointment in GroundLink’s cessation of operations, and our biggest concern is to offer these clients access to continued professional chauffeured car service.’
