With its introduction into the New York metropolitan area last month, the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service is quickly expanding to new markets. And that quick expansion has us wondering if the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service will soon be coming to Tampa, FL. Given the importance of public transit in metropolitan areas such as Tampa, it sure would be a good fit. Now, we know you’re probably wondering what the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service is exactly. So, let’s find out all we can about it, and find out if it’s going to be coming to us here in Tampa, FL.

The Ford Chariot Shuttle Service is targeted at what Ford calls “transit deserts.” What that means is that the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service was created to help those who live in areas that are not within walking distance of public transit options. So, instead of having to hike to a bus stop or subway station, those commuters can set up rides with the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service to get to and from their destination.
“Our mission at Chariot is to provide reliable, safe and affordable transportation for as many people as possible. We want to connect people more easily to where they want to go – whether they need help making it to a transit hub or live in an area underserved by public transportation.” – Chariot CEO Ali Vahabzadeh
The short answer – only time will tell. Ford has said it’s looking to continue to expand the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service once it’s completely up and running in New York. Already successful in areas like San Francisco, it’s a safe bet we’ll be seeing the Ford Chariot Shuttle Service in Tampa, FL, before too long.
