About Us

Reliable, Local Transportation Services

PrivaDrive, LLC is a locally and veteran owned transportation company, servicing Michigan City, Indiana, and surrounding areas of northwest Indiana, southwest Michigan, and Chicagoland regions.  Jeremy Blacksten, CEO, founded the company in December of 2021, along with his wife, Stephanie Blacksten, CAO.  Their best friend Eric Torness, COO, joined the company as a consultant in 2022 after 15 years in the military, then became a partner in 2023.

The business formed as Jeremy realized the demand for drivers in the area was astonishing. Other transportation companies were extremely lacking in reliability and professionalism in the market, and providing top tier transportation to the community was something Jeremy knew he could accomplish.

Ride, Relax, Repeat!

Our Fleet

Our current fleet consists of  Honda Odysseys that fit seven passengers and Ford Transits that fit fourteen passengers.  Updated with the latest safety technology, Honda and Ford bring some of the best safety ratings to their vehicles that are currently on the market.  We wanted to bring reliability to not only our service but also our vehicles.

I have had two great experiences with PrivaDrive. The first was taking me to and from O'Hare for 20+ hour international flights. The second was for domestic flights in and out of Midway. I even had to change my return flight last minute to the following morning on the latter, and they were very accommodating. It's nice to have a reliable local option for airport transportation in Southwest Michigan, where our previous options were quite limited. Definitely recommend.

First time I used Priva Drive was after a very long train ride from Colorado and they are so worth it! Smooth care-free transportation, and both Priva-Drivers I've had so far were friendly and confident in their abilities. 😺

Can’t say enough good things about them! I had Eric as a driver from O’Hare to Michigan City and it was the smoothest experience ever. Communication from booking to the ride and beyond was fantastic. Eric was super kind and a great driver. Also the company is veteran owned. I’m SO excited we have this type of business in MC! Highly recommend!

We had a great experience with PrivaDrive. They were professional, extremely communicative, right on time and friendly. And they showed up with a brand new vehicle that had more than enough room for our family and luggage. We will definitely use them again!

My family and I had a great experience with PrivaDrive. We scheduled a ride from NWI to Midway after visiting some family. Jeremy arrived on time and even dropped off our borrowed car seat! Minivan was clean inside and in great condition. Plenty of room for our family of 4. PrivaDrive will be our go-to when we are back in town.
