In all participating cities, excluding Chicago, your flat rate Black Car ride can accommodate 4 passengers. If you are requesting a flat rate Black Car from Chicago, you can expect a ride that will accommodate up to 6 passengers.

Can we pick up more passengers along the way?

You can make multiple stops to pick up additional passengers within your originating city limits. Keep in mind, outside of rest-stops for gas and bathroom breaks, your driver will not be able to make additional pickups once you are outside your originating city’s coverage area.

What if I want my driver to drive me around Louisville?

While flat rates do not include trips within Louisville, we’re working hard to get as many cars on the road to ensure you have a ride all weekend long!

When will I be charged the round trip flat rate?

Once you arrive to your destination in Louisville, the trip will end and card(s) will be charged the total round trip flat rate. Upon completing your trip to Louisville, the requestor’s account will be tagged and you will be charged $0 for trip out of Louisville on Sunday, May 3.

If I don’t need a round trip ride, can I request a one-way flat rate?

The full round trip flat rate will be charged to your account upon arrival in Louisville.
