ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Technology developments make possible a new generation of on-demand / flexible public transport services, more cost-effective and better tailored to market circumstances than prior offerings. Such services targeted at the general public — for both first mile / last mile access and local circulation purposes — have been deployed in 22 service zones by the Denver transit agency in the largest implementation to date in the USA. The technology platform for managing these services, MobilityDR, is key to this outcome.
In this webinar, DemandTrans Solutions and its partners show how an appropriate technology platform in combination with innovative service concepts provides regional transit authorities with the ability to configure, control, and operate cost-effective DRT / flexible transit services.
