Chariot adds Friday lunch hours: The tourism office is adding Friday lunch time hours to the Roman Chariot free shuttle service in downtown Rome to accommodate increased traffic during the summer season. The summer hours are Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. as well as 5-11 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 11 p.m. The new hours will begin this Friday. For free pick-up service, riders should text their location to 706-413-2822. The Roman Chariot will continue to keep the same route. It loops continuously from the Cotton Block to the 700 block and into the River District. Riders can request stops at crosswalks and intersections along the route as well as jump on the shuttle during stops. The Roman Chariot service utilizes six-seat passenger club cars to provide transportation to downtown shopping, restaurants, parking, hotels and The Forum River Center.
