Moovit launches its first on-demand ridesharing service in the US near Detroit, with Smart Bus

Smart Bus which currently operates a Dial-A-Ride service in Farmington near Detroit, Michigan, has announced it is partnering with Moovit, to offer an on-demand, dynamically routed service service that automatically assigns multiple passengers heading in the same direction to a shared vehicle.

To launch the partnership, Smart Bus is operating this service on weekdays from 6am to 6pm, and offering free rides until further notice, due to the Covid-19 pandemic…

Once a user launches the Moovit app, inputs their destination and selects Transit On-Demand with Smart, Moovit will: display the total cost of the trip (once fare collection resumes); direct passengers to a nearby pickup location; provide riders with real-time shuttle tracking; and enable future ride booking.
