App-based transportation company Chariot will launch its first public shuttle routes in Austin tomorrow, Dec. 7.[/caption]
Chariot, an app-based shuttle van that has been running a route through the Market District surrounding the Whole Foods Market on North Lamar Boulevard, will bring its first public routes online tomorrow.
Taking the shuttle will cost around $4-$5, but the San Francisco-based startup is providing free rides throughout the month to celebrate its Austin launch.
Chariot users can vote on where the company should locate its next several commuter routes.
The startup began Oct. 10 an initial service in Austin, its first expansion city. The shuttle route takes employees of Whole Foods Market and advertising agency GSD&M to work from the MetroRail Downtown stop.
