San Francisco to regulate Chariot, other private bus services

Posted on March 13, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Examiner reports that the city is planning new laws to regulate private bus services to update patchwork regulations strewn across multiple city agencies over several years.

Currently, Chariot is the only private bus service left in San Francisco, so for now the new laws would exclusively regulate just that company — but regulations would cover any similar services that may arise in the future.

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials said regulating Chariot would help them garner data to ask a number of questions, like whether Chariot takes away riders from Muni buses, provides access for people in wheelchairs, and how it addresses complaints from neighbors across the city.
