Through a series of interviews with transit leaders around the US, the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), has identified six emergent transit trends to address several pandemic-related challenges, and preserve the future of public transit.
Non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) was first offered in 1966 and created to provide transportation to and from healthcare facilities for those who did not have the means to transport themselves for one reason or another. NEMT covers non-urgent medical needs like appointments, tests, and follow-ups but also can be to support seniors in accessing PACE programs. Now, specialized NEMT software helps verify who is eligible to receive trips through medical transportation services along with a suite of other critical functions. NEMT scheduling software helps MCO’s, brokers, PACE centers, and providers manage their transportation systems quickly and efficiently.
Since 2016, Niagara Falls Transit and TripSpark Technologies have enjoyed a great partnership. Beyond helping Niagara Falls Transit keep their Fixed Route and Paratransit systems running smoothly, the TripSpark team has developed a specialized transit report to assit Niagara with their annual (and mandatory) Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) report.
For paratransit riders, TripSpark offers a cool, interactive voice response system (IVR) that allows users to easily book their trips and perform several other useful tasks. This feature is within the TripSpark Notifications product, and it enables passengers to manage all aspects of their trips, without having to speak to a customer service assistant.
The Canadian Federal Government is taking a transformative step in the right direction, with its announcement of a Permanent Transit Fund (PTF). The substantial cash injection of $3 billion, starting in 2026, will have a significant impact on the development of public transit, and keep communities moving forward, while lowering emissions.
While the USA and the rest of the world are happy to see vaccination numbers rise, and the wearing of masks dissipate, anxiety is still high. It has been so long since we truly felt “normal,” that it is hard to imagine what normal looks and feels like anymore. Even with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) restrictions being lifted in many parts of the country, there remain those who are not comfortable mingling in society for any reason, much less without a mask. Just read the news – the COVID, shut-in, way of life of the past (long) while, has hampered many people’s physical and mental health. And now that things are opening again, not everyone is ready for it.
Today, with many “regular” social opportunities re-emerging, and large numbers returning to their office work places, people are either taking advantage of their increased public transportation freedom, or they're making the choice to remain shut in. Depending on your personality type, you may be ready to hop back on the bus, or keep playing it safe, and continue to hit the brakes.
In the public transit sector, COVID-19 initiated a set of social distancing restrictions, and stringent sanitation protocols, that immediately changed the face of public transit. Today, with the pandemic nearly in our rear-view mirrors, transportation providers are now embracing and improving upon the technological and service changes they were forced to make, just to adhere to health and safety requirements.
For several years now, the health care industry has been promoting an emphasis on social determinants of health (SDOH) to improve health outcomes. These can include education, employment, nutrition, and transportation to name a few. The effort by Accountable Care and Managed Care Organizations (ACO/MCO) has been great to promote the effectiveness of adding these to a well-rounded preventative care model. But how does one determine what the needs are and, further, what resources are available?

The things that most of us take for granted - like seeing, hearing and mobility, are not possible for many individuals with special needs. However, assistive, adaptive, and other technologies, greatly help people with disabilities achieve their goals. For those of us in the transit technology industry, our job is to make transportation easier and more accessible.
The COVID-19 pandemic rapidly changed the course of health care’s future, and from an innovation standpoint, for the better. While disease will never be eliminated, through science, data, and technology, we will be able to identify it earlier, intervene proactively, and better understand its progression, to help individuals more effectively and actively sustain their well-being. We can expect 6 key areas to collectively transform the existing health system from treatment-based and reactionary care, to prevention and well-being.
At TripSpark Technologies, we create cool demand response tech solutions for our transit customers to keep their riders safe and happy. While "demand response" is not a new concept, it is often confused with other terms like "microtransit", "first mile / last mile", "on-demand" & more.
Across the country, more and more transit agencies and cities are turning to on-demand microtransit to expand and improve public transportation options for low-income residents. The reality is that most lower income individuals can't afford to own a car and have therefore been greatly underserved by traditional transit networks.
