TripSpark’s new Rides on Demand mobile app for Android and iOS has launched and is here to help your agency offer microtransit service, maximize your resources, and meet the needs and expectations of today’s riders!
What is Rides on Demand?
It is a microtransit app that will enable your agency to offer flexible service that falls in between fixed route transportation and more individual transportation options. This exciting new addition integrates seamlessly with our existing demand-response platforms and will help agencies cope with the multitude of challenges facing them today – during a time when the transit industry is evolving rapidly, and riders’ expectations are increasing. For instance, during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lethbridge Transit had to adjust their service as a result of a significant change in ridership and social distancing requirements. Switching to a microtransit service model allowed them to keep riders safe and ensure only essential trips were being made.
Leveraging the automated scheduling, routing, and dispatching functions of TripSpark’s Novus and PASS software, the app will allow you to provide flexible transit options. Essentially, your agency can decide to have dedicated transit-on-demand, or support mixed service, where paratransit and conventional riders travel together.
