Commuter-shuttle service Chariot is adding routes at home in San Francisco while setting its sights on an ambitious national and international expansion.
The company will begin providing rides to and from Potrero Hill on Monday, with plans to expand into the Sunset District in July and elsewhere in the Bay Area by the end of the year.
The Potrero Hill addition is the first service expansion in the city since Chariot added a route in the Mission District in February 2016.
CEO Ali Vahabzadeh said Chariot is looking to double the number of routes it serves in the Bay Area this year. The company has long solicited route ideas from prospective riders and allowed them to sign up for proposed routes. It has now introduced a refined version of that route-proposal tool on its app and website.
