The developers of a new ride-sharing app are using Auckland’s bus strikes to launch their product.
The Chariot BETA app is now available for download on Google Play. It is designed to connect users with people driving in the same direction and is promising to transform New Zealanders’ commutes.
An Apple version is still in development.
Chief executive and co-founder Thomas Kiefer said it was exciting to launch the app.
“For roughly the price of a bus fare, people who use Chariot will be able to get a ride from, or give a ride to, someone going in the same direction. It is a convenient, affordable, fun and safe way to get to where you need to go,” he said.
Sounds a great idea. I hope they do an Apple version soon. I’d be keen to use it.
