Driven A to B sees 500% growth

Corporate car service Driven A to B, which has seen a 500% increase in fleet and a 300% growth in staff in nine months.

Late night journeys home for Canary Wharf employees are an increasingly significant part of the business, with Driven A to B now providing up to 80 ASAP trips every weekday between 9pm and 3am. Under the ASAP agreement, Driven A to B sends a car to the relevant office within 15 – 20 minutes of the request, dependant on the terms agreed with the client.

The service also provides regular trips to and from airports, particularly in the mornings and evenings. On one day, Driven A to B completed 37 pick-ups from Heathrow within just two hours.

In total, the service is now providing in excess of 3,000 bookings every month from a customer base of more than 50 businesses, numbers that are growing on a daily basis. This has smashed the target of 2,000 bookings every month and a new contract signed with one of the major investment banks on 1st October will see a huge upturn in services.

Its fleet could quadruple within the next twelve months if demand continues to increase at the current pace.

Driven Worldwide, the global personalised chauffeur company, launched Driven A to B to fill a gap in the market. It provides a reliable, high quality service that focuses on reliability, response times and a simple, efficient and bespoke booking process. Driven A to B offers airport transfers and one-off city trips as well as journeys to destinations less favourable to London’s Black Cabs, such as late night commuter drives that involve going as far out of London as the Home Counties.

All Driven A to B drivers are PCO licensed, fully referenced, CRB checked and have passed a gruelling driving exam, testing their driving skills and knowledge of the local streets, shortcuts and locations.

Mike Bell, chief executive at Driven Worldwide and Driven A to B, said: “The secret of our success is providing a really high class service, from professional and knowledgeable staff, tailored to exactly meet the needs of our clients. It’s a simple strategy but one that has seen Driven Worldwide become a leader in its field and is now quickly doing the same for Driven A to B.

Many of our A to B clients are based on Canary Wharf, where working incredibly long hours is often rewarded with an exclusive car journey home. However, in the past nine months our client base has expanded from businesses within the financial market to those operating in the legal, media, pharmaceutical and retail sectors. We are also the first choice for two popular television shows and have the pleasure of driving the cast members to and from set. We’re incredibly proud of our team and the services we provide and look forward to working closely with customers.”
