Ford-owned shuttle provider, Chariot, will be back on the streets in San Francisco after an October shutdown.
The SFMTA has granted commuter transit service Chariot license to serve San Francisco. "Chariot must ensure new routes complement, rather than replicate, pre-existing Muni routes, as well as provide San Francisco with GPS and ridership data in order to enable the city to better understand the company’s impact," Megan Rose Dickey writes for TechCrunch. The Ford-owned company will not be allowed to stop in crosswalks or bus stops, but may use loading zones and white curbs as private cars do.
"Back in October, Chariot was forced to temporarily halt rides in San Francisco after the company failed to pass an inspection by the California Public Utilities Commission," Rose Dickey reports. Company representatives say they're excited to get back on the roads.
