Extending the paratransit model—tailored, flexible service without a set route—to everyone opens the door to close the first and last mile gap.
Imagine living close to a major transit hub or park-and-ride lot, but none of the fixed route buses get you there efficiently. You’re not likely to take transit if a ten-minute drive takes thirty minutes on a bus. But what if an on-demand bus met you at a stop close to you, picked up other commuters in your neighborhood, and only took 15 minutes to get to that hub?
That’s the future of Mobility on Demand.
