Ford to Launch Chariot Shuttles in NYC

Ford Motor Co. will expand its Chariot shuttle service to New York City in August as the company looks to offer mobility solutions to commuters in “transit deserts.” The shuttles can fit 12 people and in New York, Ford hopes the vehicles will fill in gap areas without public transportation within walking distance of homes and workplaces.

“Our mission at Chariot is to provide reliable, safe and affordable transportation for as many people as possible,” said Chariot CEO Ali Vahabzadeh. “We want to connect people more easily to where they want to go — whether they need help making it to a transit hub or live in an area underserved by public transportation.”
