Looks like it's only available in and around downtown right now. If you live in north or south Austin you're out of luck. Hopefully they'll expand soon and I'll be able to use it.
The Chariot app works great for everything...except for the raison d'etre of Chariot: booking a ride! I have to switch to the mobile browser to do that. It has been like this for months, and complaints to support falls on deaf ears. Love the service otherwise. I would give this app zero stars if it were possible. I would like to say that the service itself and the drivers are fantastic. The 1 star is a reflection on the management (now Ford) as well as the software engineers who program the Android app and the website. Here is some updates as of May 1st, 2017: App: Still cannot book a ride through the app. What's the point? I can do everything else, such as buy tickets, see my ride confirmation info after I book it (with the website; more on this after), and do just about everything except for the one thing this app is supposed to let you do: book a Chariot van. Talk about a Titantic fail. I'm not sure how they plan to get more people to use this service when their native app works about as good as a door with no door nob. Web site: I have to pretty much use this to book any Chariot vans, but here are a few things that totally suck about the web app (and I'm out of space!)
This app is awful. It does not function correctly. I couldn't even save an address or set my pickup or drop off location. Terrible
Promo code austin04 got me 2 weeks of free rides. I had to go into the profile tab and change the default city to Austin because it was set for SF. In the payments tab I tried to enter the promo code but the app said I needed to verify my phone number. I replied back to the text message they sent me and then went back into the payment tab and entered the promo code austin04 to activate my free rides. If you don't get a text message to verify phone number make sure you have one on the profile tab. I like this app because I can see all of the Chariot routes and where the available vans are in real time. It is funny when you are tracking one nearby and you see it turn the corner just like on the app!
Chariot was kind enough to give us a ride from Squaw Valley to the Tahoe Transit Center when the resort provided buses failed to show up. Buses were comfortable and even fit all of our gear!
I like the idea. Very poor implementation. Was not wise to encourage the use of this app before you have an impressive product. Wasted opportunity.
