Ford-backed transportation startup Chariot shutting down
Chariot, the Ford-owned transportation startup that operates commuter shuttle services in nine North American cities and internationally in London, is shutting down, the company said in a blog post. "Friday, January 25th is the last day we will offer service on commuter routes in the U.K., and Friday, February 1 will be the last day we will offer service on our commuter routes in the U.S. We will cease all operations across the US and in the UK by the end of March. In today's mobility landscape, the wants and needs of customers and cities are changing rapidly. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause Chariot's riders and our enterprise customers. We are committed to ensuring our customers are aware of the decision and have time to make alternative transportation arrangements."
