SAN FRANCISCO — Chariot, the Ford-owned collaborative carpooling service currently operating in the Bay area, has launched advance reservations, letting riders book a seat on a Chariot up to seven days ahead of their actual trip, according to a Tech Crunch report.

Previously, the only option was to grab a ride ad-hoc shortly before departure, an option which will continue to be offered alongside advance scheduling, the report said.

The decision to add an advance booking option was made because Chariot found that a lot of its users were using the service in predictable patterns, with regular frequency and along the same routes, either for a rider’s entire commute, or for the first- or last-mile of a trip to and from work, according to Tech Crunch.
