The Ford Chariot minivan service have announced it's planned routes in London starting 29th January 2018.
Chariots minivan will be capable of transporting 15 passengers who will be able to pay for the journey through an app on their phone. Data collected will be used to design new routes and service areas that are currently struggling to offer easy transportation options. London will be Chariots first international venture outside of the United States, where it already operates in cities such as San Francisco, Seattle, Austin and New York. Ford are currently on the lookout for a general manager for their London operations. There have been no reports of a licence application being submitted to Transport For London yet, but with Uber currently battling to keep their licence in the Capital, maybe Ford will see this as the perfect opportunity to offer an alternative product.
TaxiPoint can today reveal the six routes that the Chariot shuttle bus service will be operating on.
The six routes are as follows:
Battersea Park to Kennington Station
Carlton Road, Erith to Abbey Wood Station
Fulham Riverside, Townmead Road to Holland Park Station
Shooters Hill Shot:
Shooters Hill to North Greenwich Station
St Georges Way to Bermondsey Underground Station
