App-based shuttle van service Chariot will launch its first late-night route tomorrow, Jan. 27.
A different kind of ride-hailing service will be available to downtown revelers starting tomorrow—for a limited time.
Chariot, an app-based shuttle van service, will introduce its first late-night route serving riders going to and from bars and restaurants during the weekends. Beginning Jan. 27, the route will run fromRainey Street to the West Sixth Street entertainment district for a month.
Each chariot van holds 14 passengers, and rides will cost $3.50 per person for the late-night route.
"The new service was created in partnership with the West Sixth Business Association to test new mobility solutions to support local businesses in both neighborhoods and provide a convenient option for residents and visitors traveling between the two high-traffic areas," a Chariot representative said in an email.
Austin is Chariot's first expansion city. Chariot founder and CEO Ali Vahbzadeh spoke toCommunity Impact about the role he sees the company playing in addressing the city's mobility issues.
New Chariot riders can get their first five rides free by signing up with the promo code WEST6TH. For more information on Chariot visit www.chariot.com.
