BOOK by Cadillac members will have app-enabled on-demand access to the latest premium trim Cadillac models to keep in their possession. The vehicles will be delivered via white-glove concierge to members’ requested locations and exchanged at their leisure or as their needs change. Members can just as easily take to the winding roads in a performance V Series and enjoy a back-mountain winter ski trip in an Escalade in the same week. Alternatively, they can keep an SUV during the winter months and switch to a performance sedan during the summer, with each vehicle picked up and delivered to their doorstep.
With maintenance, insurance and detailing of the vehicle handled by Cadillac, members are freed from the baggage that comes with traditional vehicle ownership and given the freedom and flexibility to fit their lifestyle.
BOOK by Cadillac will launch first in the New York metro area, with plans to debut in other markets.

Chariot began in 2014, providing riders four things: A fast, reliable, affordable and comfortable commute using employee drivers (“Charioteers”), brand new 14-passenger chariots, all directed by custom-built technology.
The company crowdsources future routes and pickup/dropoff stops by learning home and work address from users like you. Then, upon reaching a critical mass in a neighborhood, they ask you and your neighbors to crowdfund the new route’s launch by reserving your first Chariot pass. When they reach the target number of riders, Chariot launches the new route within days.
Chariot was acquired by Ford in September 2016.
