You've tried taxis, pedicabs, buses and all the non-Uber alternatives to get around. For Austin City Limits Fest's second weekend, how do you feel about taking a shuttle?
Chariot, a ride-hailing app service for commuters that provides shuttle rides, has launched in Austin and will offer free rides to those going to and from ACL Fest (or in that general direction, a spokesperson said in an email) and who sign up and book a ride using the Chariot app, available for iOS and Android.
The company plans to have six shuttles going during the weekend and will expand its fleet over the next few weeks to more routes. The average cost of a Chariot ride is $4 based on the time and distance of each route; the routes will be determined by users. The company currently has 31 active routes in San Francisco. You can see a map of the current Austin routes below:
