Have You Heard Of Chariot, London's New Shared Transport Service?

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Chariot.

Do you live in one of London's transport not-spots?

Y'know, those areas where the nearest tube is just that little bit too far. Where the buses all terminate in the middle-of-nowhere. Where there's not a Boris Bike in sight...

London has one of the world's best public transport networks, but sometimes it lets us down — and that's where Chariot, the capital's nifty new commuter minibus service, seeks to plug the gap.

The service has already transformed the commutes of our friends across the pond and now it's London's turn, with the launch of four key commuter routes — the first of their kind in Europe.

These aren't any old bus routes, either. Chariot's fuel-efficient, modern and comfy vehicles are full of creature comforts, with free WiFi, air conditioning, and overhead storage for laptop bags and briefcases. Like normal buses, these snappy shuttles can use the city's network of bus lanes to bypass rush hour traffic — and we love their catchy names, too.

The Battersea Bullet

Links the recently opened Battersea Power Station neighbourhood and Nine Elms area to the Victoria line at Vauxhall and the Northern line at Kennington.

The Wandsworth Wanderer

Links Wandsworth's new residential developments to Clapham Junction, allowing transfer to National Rail, London Overground and Gatwick Express services.

The Nuxley Navigator

Links Belvedere and Nuxley Village to National Rail and forthcoming Elizabeth line services at Abbey Wood.

The Shooters Hill Shot

Links residential areas in Greenwich to Jubilee line services from North Greenwich station, and major attractions like the O2.

The four routes have been cleverly designed to complement the city's existing public transport network by joining up the dots between key commuter hubs.

So, how do you grab a seat on one of these things?

Easy. Just fire up the Chariot app and search for a nearby route. You'll be directed to the closest available pickup point, where you can track the progress of your shuttle in real time — and best of all, you'll have a guaranteed seat when it arrives.

A variety of payment options are available, from month-long passes for daily commuters, to one-off rides for those in need of a quick transport fix.
