Transit agencies and cities are looking toward public-private partnerships as potential solutions for providing better transit connections. In places where fixed-route transit may not be feasible given density, connectivity, or other land-use considerations, these partnerships could hold the key.
Join leading transportation operators from Seattle, Arlington, Grand Rapids, and Newton as they explore their unique public-private partnerships with transportation network companies to deploy microtransit networks that meet various needs within their communities. Lead by the Shared Use Mobility Center (SUMC), each city leader will teach viewers about:
- A first-and-last mile on-demand transit option in Seattle, WA, that helped more residents access existing transportation infrastructure.
- An on-demand transit solution in Newton, MA, for seniors, building mobility for a community that really needed it.
- A paratransit on-demand service in Grand Rapids, MI that upgraded service to a population that typically is served by outdated, inefficient transit options.
- A full public transit replacement with on-demand in Arlington, TX that has been met with increased ridership, efficiency, and overall community satisfaction.
