’s ride-sharing shuttle service Chariot is expanding operations in London to help companies and campuses improve commuter journeys and reduce the number of vehicles on the road.
Chariot’s minibus service started operating in the UK capital earlier this year to help connect commuters living and working in areas underserved by public transport.
The first new shuttle service is part of an agreement sustainable transport group EasitNetwork. It will serve commuters at Stockley Park – a business park containing firms such as IBM, Apple and BP, near Heathrow - and Hayes & Arlington Station.
Users can book a trip on Chariot’s 14-seat shuttle and track their vehicle’s progress in real-time via the company’s smartphone app.
The shuttle is free for Chariot app users until 1 December. It will then only be available to EasitNetwork members.
