The Georgia’s Rome Office of Tourism is adding Friday lunch time hours to the Roman Chariot free shuttle service in downtown Rome to acccommodate increased traffic during the summer.  As of this Friday, June 14th, the service will be offered every Friday from 11 am to 2 pm and from 5 pm to 11 pm and every Saturday from noon to 11 pm, according to a release from the Office of Tourism. 

Riders should text their location to (706) 413-2822 for free pick-up service. The Roman Chariot’s route will remain the same; it loops continuously from the Cotton Block to the 700 block and into the River District.  Stops may be requested at crosswalks and intersections along this route.  Riders may jump on the shuttle during stops.

The Roman Chariot service uses six-seat passenger club cars in order to offer transportation to shopping, restaurants, parking, hotels and the Forum River Center in downtown Rome.  The shuttle service is also available to lease for downtown events.  When it is not in service, it is available to private groups and events. 

Vehicles utilized for the shuttle were made possible by the City of Rome and Floyd County.  Rome’s Downtown Development Authority and the Business Improvement District (or BID) also extend financial support to the program, which is managed by the Georgia’s Rome Office of Tourism. 

For more information about the Roman Chariot, contact Lisa Smith via phone at (706) 295-5576. Visit www.romegeorgia.org/chariot to view an online map of the shuttle service.
