Ground Transportation

The right vehicle. When and where you need it. That’s just the start.

A perfectly planned and executed mission can be tarnished if the ground transportation doesn’t meet passenger or crew expectations. Late arrivals, the wrong size vehicle, uninformed drivers, and bad information are all risks that can adversely impact mission success – and create unnecessary stress. With Universal Private Transport, you can arrange VIP ground transportation anywhere in the world and be confident that when plans change, your ground transport will change with it seamlessly.
