Microtransit

Jump to: navigation, search

Microtransit is an up and coming trend for transit as complement of or alternative to traditional bus service:

  1. Uses mobile technology đŸ“± for on demand reservation and dispatching like popular ride-hail/TNC services.
  2. Uses small shuttle buses or large vans vs full size buses for traditional fixed route service.
  3. To provide first and last mile solution in low density areas connecting riders to mainline bus and rail service.

Unlike ride-hail/TNC service, microtransit services are wheelchair accessible and drivers are employees of contractor or transit agency.
