Chariot Shuttle Service

Chariot in front of St. Ignatius

Chariot is a commuter shuttle service that aims to provide a fast, reliable, affordable, and comfortable commute service to riders. The company operates brand new 14-passenger “chariots”, running fixed routes throughout San Francisco.

USF-Chariot Partnership

USF has teamed up with Chariot to establish stops around the USF campus on the Richmond Racer route (morning) and the Geary Galloper route (afternoon/evening). These routes also pick up and drop off at the following transportation hubs:

  • Civic Center BART station
  • Embarcadero BART station
  • Caltrain station
  • Ferry Building/Transbay Terminal.
  • Additionally, benefits-eligible, full-time faculty and staff at USF are eligible to ride Chariot for $1 per ride, which can be paid by setting aside pre-tax dollars using your My Commuter Check (MYCC) account. USF will subsidize the rest of the per ride cost. For all others, rides cost $3-$5 depending on peak times, or you can purchase an unlimited monthly pass.

    Chariot service has replaced the USF Hilltop-downtown shuttle that ended permanently on Wednesday, May 31.
