Ford Has Launched A Crowdsourced Ride Sharing Route In New York

Chariot, a Ford-owned shuttle service that uses Ford Transit Wagons as its vehicles of choice, is launching its first new crowdsourced route in New York City. The announcement was made recently at the Ford Hub NYC event.

A crowdsourced route is one created by customers who currently don’t have access to a Chariot line. The new New York route will go from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Midtown, Manhattan, starting on October 10.

People interested in creating their own routes in any of the cities Chariot operates in can do so by going to the company’s website and inputting their commute. If Chariot doesn’t offer service there, the interested party can choose to invest in making the route official with a forward payment. Creating a new route requires multiple people’s support, meaning that the interested passenger must share his or her new route with others in the area who would benefit from the service and have the willingness to back it. Once all is said and done, the founders of the route receive a free first week of service.

Chariot operates in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, Austin and Seattle.
