Ride-hailing company Chariot, which uses 14-passenger vehicles to transport riders along fixed routes, announced on Tuesday two fixed routes for the Austin area that will be available starting on Wednesday.
One is called the "Lamar Bullet" and runs up South Lamar to downtown, serving neighborhoods like Bouldin, Barton Hills and Zilker.
The second route is called "Riverside Rover," and runs along Riverside Drive, serving neighborhoods like Travis Heights and Lakeshore.
"These were the two most-requested routes based on the initial Chariot user sign-ups," said the San Francisco-based company.

The company said it is providing free rides for the month of December. After that fares will be around $4 to $5 per ride.
Chariot may be familiar to some Austinites because they technically launched during the Austin City Limits Festival, offering free rides to and from the fest. Their app is available on iOS and Android devices.
