Microtransit is an up and coming trend for transit as complement of or alternative to traditional bus service:
- Uses mobile technology 📱 for on demand reservation and dispatching like popular ride-hail/TNC services.
- Uses small shuttle buses or large vans vs full size buses for traditional fixed route service.
- 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.
