Recent Route Changes
Chariot began service from the East Bay to UCSF Mission Bay in June 2018. Service expanded to Mount Zion in October, but was discontinued Nov. 30, based on ridership data. Please review the most current timetables on the Chariot website. We hope that there is a Chariot that works for your schedule. We are planning a phased approach to grow this service as future demand dictates, and we will continue to study demand at Mount Zion and Parnassus Heights. There will be additional updates coming in 2019, stay tuned!
Both the Mission Bay and Mount Zion locations were chosen due to the proximity to Kaiser. As part of the MTC grant, these Chariot routes are also available to Kaiser employees.
