CharterUP®, the first fully integrated charter bus marketplace for corporations, consumers and operators, today announced its official launch in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, with a fleet of more than 100 buses in partnership with 15 locally-based charter operators.
CharterUP has pioneered tech-enabled charter bus booking and management in the U.S., providing companies, government organizations, schools, sports teams and private groups an easy solution for contracting and managing one-time or recurring bus services for events, group travel and employee commutes.
“As an industry disruptor, our mission is to improve the group travel space one technology implementation at a time, with the ultimate goal of helping customers charter a bus in 60 seconds or less,” said Armir Harris, founder and CEO of CharterUP. “Dallas is a city constantly innovating with technology, data and intelligence to improve infrastructure and meet the demands of a high volume of motorists and commuters. It is a perfect location to launch our services and we’re excited to expand our footprint in Texas.”
Fortune 500 companies currently engaging CharterUP to manage their group transportation include Amazon, Apple, Ashley Furniture, Delta, Facebook, Google, H-E-B, Hilton, Hyatt, Microsoft, Sysco, Texas Instruments and more.
The company recently announced the Corporate Shuttle program, which provides enterprise clients nationwide access to over 500 operating partners on the company’s proprietary, fully integrated technology platform. CharterUP’s tech-enabled white label mobile app will allow Dallas-based companies the ability to monitor in-depth ridership data, live trip tracking and more, while employees can check available shuttle times, pickup locations, request rides and track shuttles in real-time from their personal mobile device.
Since its founding in 2018, CharterUP has experienced over 100% annual growth and recently surpassed an annual revenue run rate of $150 million in 2022. In October, the company announced a $60 million Series A led by Tritium Partners, an Austin, Texas-based investment firm that specializes in online marketplaces, logistics and software companies with exceptional growth potential.
