Tech Enables Better On-Demand Services for Transit Agencies

Taxi trips in Kansas City, Mo., have fallen to $3 for some passengers, while similar door-to-door transportation services can be arranged in Tampa, Fla., for just a few dollars. A similar transit program in Austin, Texas, has made its rides free.
These three cities are just a few examples of transit agencies experimenting with transportation models that offer more “on-demand” services while exploring new transit options in neighborhoods with few regular bus routes.
